Stone The Snakes


Improve your keyboard skills with this fun, yet educational game from Darren Bradley

STONE THE SNAKES Typing tutors need not be dull, mind-numbing programs, as STONE THE SNAKES clearly demonstrates. It is designed to improve your knowledge of the Electron's keyboard, but the tutor takes the form of a simple, yet addictive game.

It is especially suitable for young children, helping them identify the most common keys while having lots of fun while they do so.

You are an Indian snake charmer's assistant and while he is at lunch your task is to watch his baskets, making sure the snakes don't escape. You sit beside the six baskets armed with a handful of pebbles.

Watch for any snake that pops its head out and when it does throw a pebble at it to make it jump back in. Each basket has a letter printed on the side - press that letter on the keyboard to throw a pebble.

If you are too slow the snake will put its tongue out, escape and bite you, costing you one of your lives. Throw at the wrong basket and the snake will again escape and bite you. Sometimes a snake will pop its tail out of its basket. Don't throw stones then as they bounce back and hit you.

There are five levels of difficulty, so no matter how good - or poor - your typing skills, you can still have a challenging game. If you complete a level you'll automatically move on to the next.
