In the beginner levels you will be attacked by slow moving aliens. At first the aliens will have a single letter above them. You must press that letter key on the keyboard to disintegrate that alien. On the second level in the beginner difficulty, you will be given clusters of letters that appear in a line on the keyboard, such as qwert.

If you play on the intermediate difficulty you will be typing short words of two or three letters with slow moving aliens. You should play intermediate if you know how to type, but are slow and need to increase your typing speed.

If you are pretty good but not great and you need to boost your speed, try advanced. At the advanced difficulty the aliens move faster and the words get longer.

If you are a very good typist and would like to see how good, try impossible. The aliens come fast and furious with long and short words. Aliens become more difficult to read as they spin and shoot across the sky.
