Ys Typing Tutor is a freeware action typing game set in the Ys universe, in the same vein as The Typing of the Dead or TypoGun.
Ys Typing Tutor is a side-scrolling beat-em-all, in which the player must help the hero knight to defeat the waves of enemies coming at him. Each level also features a end of level boss. To defeat an enemy, the player must type the word or the sentence displayed above the enemy within a limited time. If the player let the enemy reach the hero, a portion of the life bar will disappear. If the totality of the life bar is removed the game is over. The player has however the option to continue the game, resuming at the beginning of the current level.
As the player progresses, he faces greater threats, in the form of faster enemies, enemies with longer sentences to type or several foes to defeat at a time. Three difficulty levels are available and alter the speed of enemies and the time allotted to defeat them. The vocabulary is mostly taken from games of the Ys series. [source:mobygames]
