'TuxTyping' is an educational typing tutorial game starring Tux, the Linux Penguin. The player guides Tux to eat fish which are falling from the top of the screen. Each fish has a letter or a word written on it. When the player presses the corresponding key, or types the appropriate word, Tux will position himself to eat the fish. The game is intended for children learning to type and to spell, though it does have higher difficulty levels which even experienced typists may find challenging. The package is platform independent.
