  1. This is the first time that a survival/horror game has made me laugh out loud, and still manages to retain all of the scariness that was present in the shooting version of the game. In some cases it's scarier because you're typing for your life, which is hardly an easy thing to do.

    It's simple and immensely addictive. If not for a few graphical and aural problems it'd be a near perfect game to waste hours upon hours on.

    Incredibly addictive. [Jan 2002, p.110]
  4. 78
    The word challenges and speed are challenging, and often funny, but the challenge level won't stop even a mediocre typist from finishing the game in just a few hours.
  5. An unusual game that might not have amazing graphics or sound, but its gameplay is unique and extremely fun.
