I actually like typing games, loved Mario teaches typing back on Win 3.1

I have Typing of the Dead and some other games involving typing, even have TOTD on my Dreamcast.

But I also have two young kids, and TOTD is not really a good fit right now :P

I snagged this on sale, and did not think much of it. Mostly, I figured it was for kids, a learning experience or edutainment type game.

Honestly... I don't mind typing a few sharks to death myself!

Wouldn't mind some awards or new typing adventures (beyond this diver theme, even a new game entirely, I'd pay for variety)

Really, if you see it on sale again, or have the full price, it is more than it appears. If you like to practice typing, want a game that will run on near anything, and don't mind killing sharks, you should buy this game.

I no longer have any friends, my wife left me, my kids don't want to see me, and i lost my 7 figure salary career. But, it's all been worth it. Since i bought this game many moons ago, I have not left my house, and although the real-world aspects of my life have dissolved, i have barely noticed due to the inexpressible amazingness of this game. And best of all, it only took me 3.142 seconds to type this review.

Good. Just a standard typing game. And comes with a good typing practice course too.

+ you can type!
+ typing tutor
+ variety of enemies
+ endless challenge
- unsatisfying graphic and sounds
8 out of 10, excellent.

Its an OK typing game, a little weak IMO but worth it if you can pick it up on sale. Its also a bit dated in terms of graphics. It doesn't have the imagination or replayabity of most other PopCap games.

It might help that I can already touchtype, but I love the combination of randomness and functionality that Typer Shark gives. Where else can you kill sharks to practice typing. Not much difference between levels, so some monotony sets in, but it is still compelling!

If you want to improve your typing skills while playing a game then this is the game for you. It really does stretch your typing skills by giving you multiple challenges to work with. It will test you and push you to type faster and more accurate then you thought possible. It can be frustrating at times to get all the words on the screen but with practice you can type really fast with this game. It has a story mode were you try to get diamonds. You will get attacked by Sharks and other fish of the ocean which makes it fun to attack all the fish, you will be challenged with single letters and whole words. This is a great learning game and great for anyone wanting to grow with their typing skills.

Beautiful graphics. Amazing gameplay. Step aside Call of Duty there's a new boss in town. The Sharks are true and fine to a point.

Super fun and addicting game! Well-worth the money! The only problem is that once you exit the game, you must manually go into your task manager to close it. I hope they make a sequel with updated graphics, feature of blood and gore, and... TO BE ABLE TO 360 NO SCOPE THE F**KING SHARKS #420SMOKEWEEDEVERYDAY

All Pop Cap's games are just perfect. Easy to learn, "plug & play" but, with increasing difficulty and clear instructions before every new thing to learn. Intense rythm, you are always clicking the mouse, no time to rest. Original, they can be based on anything else but they do their own way and with outstanding imagination. The right difficulty at the right time, to maintain the interest. Variated play modes. Ridiculous simple controls, usually just the mouse and their two buttons, some times the arrows pad is also neeced but, that's all. Very good music and sound effects....
Well, if you already played Zuma, you know what I mean but, they have other interesting titles and this is one of them.
Highly recommeded for casual tmes, when you are in a hurry and want to play just a bit or, for that "in between big games" time.
ONE OF THE WEAKESTS BUT, ENSSURED PLAYABILITY

I like this game - BUT there is a serious problem with it not shutting down after exit! The ONLY way to close the program is Restart/Reboot. Not Good. This really needs fixing!
