Some free online typing games include "Keyboard Revolution," "Desert Typing Racer," "Typeracer" and "Typing of the Living Dead," as of 2015. The digital distribution platform Steam also allows PC users to purchase the game "Typing of the Dead," a typing version of the arcade game "House of the Dead."
The game "Keyboard Revolution" allows the player to control a dancing character by correctly typing different letters as they appear on the screen. It features multiple difficulty levels that incorporate various amounts of keys. "Desert Typing Racer" uses word and letter typing to allow the player to drive a car through the desert. The game also contains various obstacles to avoid by correctly typing words or pressing the space bar. "Typeracer" features a similar control scheme, but with the added ability to compete against other racers online as well as in a single player practice mode.
The PC game "Typing of the Dead" features the same story, characters and levels from the arcade light gun game "House of the Dead," but with typing as the primary mode of attack. Each approaching enemy features a different word that the player must type in order to successfully defeat it. As the levels progress, the player must type more advanced words and face a larger number of enemies.
