Tips for Typing Maniac
I'm currently on the Robot Level of Typing Maniac with a score of 480K points. I'm only Top 4 among my friends. The highest game level I've reached was Level 23 and boy I have to tell you I was typing really like crazy at that point in the game.
Reaching this level wasn't easy, here are some tips that I like to share with you:
Perfect the easy levels, target 100% accuracy to get the bonus points. Do this for levels 1 to 8 at least to get a significant total score by level 9.
The higher the level, the higher the bonus points will be if you manage 100% at the end.
Try to get the "black" words for double points.
Use the power ups only in time of great need. Strategize.
The most useful powerups for me are wind and ice. So I tend to stock up on them.
Keep an eye out on the life meter (signified by the red bar line), once it reaches beyond 70%, if you have the "wind" powerup don't hesitate to use it. Don't hold out at the last minute or you might regret it.
Use the "ice" powerup only if there are a lot of colored words falling down and try to remember them.
On the high levels, I noticed that the 4 to 5 letters words are situated on the left side of the game screen while the longer words are on the right. You can try to type out the short words as they fall because they are easier but I think the longer words are worth more points, so if you can try to clear them out first.
If your fingers feel tired or your eyes are a bit strained, rest for a bit before continuing the game.
It's easier to type when your palms aren't resting on your laptop or on the wrist pad of your keyboard.
Practice! Practice! Practice!
I've heard that there are cheat engines out there for this game. I seriously discourage anyone to use this because you might get your Facebook accounts banned and that's never a fun thing. Plus you're only cheating yourself right? You might brag about your high score to your friends but you know deep inside that you didn't really gain that fair and square.
