For most of us, typing is something we already know how to do. Especially those of us that grew up in the technology and internet age. But those are older and even those that are younger (read: our parents and our kids) may have trouble with typing, especially when it comes to our smartphones with smaller displays than our computer or laptop. There’s a new game available on Android which is set to help you learn how to type faster as well as learn how to spell better. It’s an “interesting typing game for kids”. ZType is a quick and entertaining action game, which is combined with a virtual keyboard that is on your smartphone or tablet. This way kids can learn to spell as well as type faster while playing a game and having some fun. The developer says that ZType will also improve your typing and spelling skills.
In ZType you’ll be fending enemy attack waves by proving your typing skills in the game. With each letter that you touch, it shoots a powerful plasma bullet into the enemy’s ship in ZType. So if you want to kill the enemies, you’ll need to type fast to win the game. You’ll be able to use EMP bombs as well to destroy enemies that may be nearby. This is a Galactic Keyboarding Adventure for kids, and will help them learn and master a virtual keyboard. This is great for the future, as kids will definitely be using keyboards for pretty much their entire life.
ZType is available on the Google Play Store today and it’s completely free. There are no in-app purchases included here. Making it a great game for kids as they can play it and you don’t need to worry about your kids racking up in-app purchases on your credit card bill. There are some beautiful graphics which look even cooler with the great explosions that happen in the game. There is no Google Play Games support here, but that might come in the near future, as usual. Pick up ZType today and get better at typing on any keyboard!
