Typomaniac is a quick-play arcade game, which pitches a player's
typing skills and quick reflexes against hordes of offbeat
In this compelling (spelling) test of nerves and skill, the
player's goal is to rid the town of its zombie infestation once and
for all. Help comes courtesy of a variety of bonus health and
weapon drops, but when the horde is bearing down it's the player's
fast fingers which bring the firepower.

including 5 crazed boss characters, plus a special "survival mode"
for the real killer elite.
