Tux Typing 1.8.0
An educational typing tutor for children.
Tuxtyping 2 is almost a complete rewrite! It has something for everyone no matter who or where you are! If you're a gamer it even comes with two built in easter eggs! A large amount of time was spent with four goals in mind, make the game code clean, make it easy to translate, make it more fun to play and make it a better tool for those who have the more serious side of typing in mind. Tuxtyping 2 runs better and more consistently on a larger range of machines.
Tuxtyping 2 has a brand new file structure. The code itself has undergone deep surgery. Its faster, cleaner and easier to understand!
Teachers will find the new Tuxtyping to be a more moldable tool they can use in there classrooms. It is easier now (and will become even easier) to group the types of exercises, words and characters into a lesson! We need alot of help here, ideas for the lessons/tutorials seem to be few and far between. (tho Jess does have some good ones!) We'd still like more.
Your kids will play for more than minutes now and learning all the time! Tuxtyping has lots of new toys to play with for them! (But don't let me catch you playing after the kids go to bed!)
New game! Comet Zap! Tux is challenged with the task of protecting 9 cities! More challenging game play in all the games! Based on Tux of Math Command another Tux4Kids game.
French Danish Armenian! (hey we do them all!)
Tuxtyping is much less tedious to translate now since most on screen graphical text is generated from text files. Text in the game can be translated by editing one file. A Theming How-To is available at our internationalization center.
