OMG! Words! – A Free Game for Linux with Our Faces In

Calling all grammar nazis and typo hunters: Put your fingers where your gripes are and go up against the editors of OMG! Ubuntu! in time wasting typing game ‘OMG! Words!’

The game was created by the talented folks at Sigmoid as a demonstration of the LOVE game framework. You can read more on LOVE here.

OMG! Words! is free, cheesy and somewhat addictive. Better still it’s easy to play.

If you have an internet connection OMG! Words! will pull glean a list of words from recent posts for you to ‘battle’ against (If you don’t have an internet connection then it just uses magic).

These words ‘rain’ down (at increasing rates of difficulty) for you to ‘type’. The aim is to type as many words correctly as possible, as fast as possible. The longer you play the harder it gets – just like making it through to level 10 of Tetris things do get frantic.

Benjamin is also on hand, hurling insults at you if you drop the pace or misspell a word.

Note that we, Ohso, can not be held responsible for any repetitive strain injuries that result from playing with us.*
