    Improve your Suretyping?

    Advertisement



    Sorry if this is old news, but I only visit the BB homepage (on the BB browser) every once in a while and noticed a game I haven't seen before! Trooper Typing! To prevent paratroopers invading your place or being bombed, you type the word (or numbers or symbols!) on the screen and it kills it. I love it, I think it's improved my suretyping already.

    It tends to drag on forever...so just do what I do....hit the Menu button to pause it and leave it running in the background until you're ready to play again. But don't do what I did....do a soft reset because I was tempted at cleaning my memory, lol.

    many people know about this game already but its good to bring it back up for those who dont. I like this game but I have a problem with the troopers that display the 3 numbers. I can only type in 2 and the 3rd doesnt go through.

    anyway, its fun nonetheless and helps your typing skills

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Interesting. What I found helpful too when I was on my 7130 was chatting. Of course you want to keep up with the conversation so it motivates you to type faster. That also worked when transitioning to my new 8830 which has it's own "keyboard challenges".

    When it gets to 3 digits, you have to set your keyboard to num lock (or so what has worked for me). It makes it harder PLUS you have to turn OFF num lock if the next word is not a number.

    what i do when it's 3 digits is i HOLD DOWN the alt key while i get all 3 numbers in. works like a charm, but you do have to use both your thumbs for this

    Hey cool I didn't know of this. Kinda like that game that came out for Dreamcast, Typing of the Dead (except for suretype!). =P That was an awesome game.
