The Typing of The Dead: Overkill reviews and comments

You see all those games where you have to shoot zombies with a gun in the arcade? Well there it is the same but on the keyboard! Rather than shoot, we type words, phrases or letters to elimiiner zombies and projectiles. This will lead you to typing more! Okay, the game is ugly as a louse, but there is a multi-local and online mode, and a very "overkill" atmosphere with swearing at every corner of phrase and good breathing dialogues the nanard.

Humorous way movie B series, atypical gameplay. Plus a bonus version of the game called "House ot the dead", more classic. Nervous gameplay, deep balloons. Portage well done for once, no slowdown even on my small config (core i3 2, 3ghz + hd5470) only negaitfs: bosses too unbalanced, few graphical configuration options (just change of resolution and various filters) and no way to change the keys in the version "HOTD" (difficult to play on the Tablet without the script of the shot).

I played it a little quickly, in medium difficulty mode, it was really fun:). Difficulty level: I type fast enough, but I have not finished the first level XD. Gameplay: the character moves, and looks on its own, and as the targets appear, words, phrases or letters appear on the targets that need to be typed as quickly as possible to kill them. It seems planned to add dictionaries other than US and UK, I hope it will be possible, because it is less easy to type in a different language than his own. The audio is very well found, I absolutely regret not my purchase \ o/(especially I have to buy it in cheap promo ^^).

We no longer present House of the dead, a well-known arcade shooting game. It is here declined for the 2nd time in a version that is played on the keyboard, namely that instead of targeting the monsters, a word (or a sentence according to the difficulty) is displayed on their head and it must be typed to the keyboard to get rid of them. Not thrilling, but effective, and can have the side effect of improving your keyboard typing speed! Good point: the original version (the version with guns and viewfinder played with the mouse) is included, so if the gimmick with the keyboard does not amuse you you always have the opportunity to play the game anyway. The storyline of the game is rather well brought in the way of a Tarantino film, while exegating and grossed assumed, and the levels are interspersed with cutscenes in which the characters interact which are my rather amusing faith to follow if you like the genre . The difficulty is adjustable if you are not a Pro keyboard, the easy mode will not bother you too much, there or the hardcore mode requires clearly to be in the top 1% worldwide in speed of typing to hope to get away. (Black dot, no local multiplayer possible, even in the viewfinder version, even with several pads for example... too bad)
