For System 1 - 5 - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Mini vMac

This is a keyboarding (typing) application released in 1987. It has color graphics; peculiar since Macintosh II appeared that very same year and developers dragged their feet on colorizing software. The application runs in Mac OS 9 just fine (no monitor depth requirements).

The game is not Apple Event aware (Shut Down will not force it to quit) and does not follow the '87 Apple Human Interface Guidelines very well. In general, this application was and is pretty horrible in contrast with Mavis Beacon. But the crude illustrations give it an endearing quality which makes it worth trying.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

By the way, Sound On/Off under Setup menu only controls if the system beep sound will play during a typing error. There is no other sound involved.
