A typewriting defense game

In this game you have to defend your homeworld from an alien invasion, but instead of blasting them off with proton weapons and lasers and anti-matter bombs, you have to actually type words. With your keyboard. On your device.

This may not seem the most enthralling approach in the world, but at least is something original and seldom seen. Every time you'll see three words around your ship. If you type the upper or lower one, you'll move that way. If you type that found in front of you, you'll shoot. Although the game is quite clumsy and pace is slow, we miss some power-ups to support your usual keyboard (forget slide-to-write or any other input way other than a tap for a key), different enemies and something lookalike a difficulty curve.

This game allows to upload your highscore to Skillers network and can be downloaded for free. Ads are shown at the bottom of the screen, out of the playing zone.

Developer's original description available here
The alien spaceships are coming. In the game, your mission is to destroy each of the enemy’s spaceships. Use the typewriting to control your spaceship and launch powerful laser weapon. Don’t let the enemy’s spaceship reach the red line that is your territory border. Otherwise, you will lose your defense mission.

Through this super typewriting game, you can improve your response and typewriting speed and accuracy. After the game, you’ll get a score based on your performance. If you get the high score, it will be saved to global leader board. Be a typewriting master and see your name in the leader board. If you like it, don’t hesitate to share it with your friends.

Note: when you play the game for the first time, you need to login the Skiller system which is the leader board server. You can just login as a guest. For some user, it’ll take 2-3 seconds to login the leader board server, depending on the network conditions.
