Last month I made a free game for practicing typing Hangul, and I promised to add updates and new features to it. Well, I re-made the entire game from scratch, and improved on every part of it that I could. I'd still like to add more features, if there's interest in the game.
Here's a trailer of the updated game.
It's the year 2020 and the Hangul Aliens have invaded the planet. Fortunately for us, they have a weakness - the modern Korean keyboard. Can you save earth from disaster?
How to play:
Type the letters on your keyboard as they fall from the sky. If you make a mistake, a meteor will fall down. You can shoot meteors with your turret, using the space bar. Any letters or meteors that hit the floor will drain your life.
If you don't know where the keys are on the keyboard, you can press Escape at any time to show an interactive keyboard and pause the game.
Remember that some letters also require the shift key.
There are 5 levels: consonants only, vowels only, consonants and vowels, a master mode, and a words mode. In master mode, letters will continue to fall more frequently and faster over time, making it more difficult the longer you play. There is no time limit in master mode, so try to score as high as you can. In the words mode, words will fall more frequently and faster over time, and there is no time limit; in addition, meteors will only fall if a word touches the ground, so be careful and make sure to type every word completely to avoid losing additional health.
There are also a variety of falling items that you can shoot: health packs will restore some of your health, comets will slow down falling objects temporarily, nuclear bombs will destroy all letters and meteors on the screen, and power ups will increase the speed and effectiveness of your turret.
If you need a refresher on how to play, check out the Tutorial on the main menu.
