Typer Shark! Deluxe is a single-player typing game developed and published by PopCap Games, Inc. It was first released on June 11, 2003. The gameplay involves a sea diver searching for a treasure by exploring shipwrecks found at the sea. As the diver begins diving, he will encounter groups of piranhas and sharks. The player’s goal is to type in the word or letter written at the fishes in order to kill them and prevent them from eating the diver.
As the game advance, other types of sea creatures appear. Piranhas and sharks become tougher to beat. The diver will also encounter some jellyfish. This creature serves as a bonus element in the game. Jellyfish can’t harm the diver. If the player is able to type the letters on the jellyfish, he will receive added zapper charges and bonus points. At later levels, mutant fish also appears. This type of creature moves faster than any other types of fish. They also come together with a group of piranhas. At the end of each level, when the diver reaches the bottom of the sea, the player has to defeat the boss to finish that level. This is done by typing the letters and words listed on the cannonballs or torpedoes. The game also features an element called Shark Zapper. This can be used to zap the entire fish. However, the player cannot be used during boss battle.
