Mario Teaches Typing

 in 1982,Educational — bunnzy

It all begins with an annoying PC speaker song. Beep beep beep. It does not make you want to do the Mario. But do not worry, it ends with you being able to type like a tacky, blonde, perfectly manicured secretary.

This game may have the Mario brand, but it’s also a very comprehensive typing tutor. It only had one fault I could find, it wouldn’t let me skip ahead to more advanced levels if I felt I was advanced enough to start further ahead. I had to go through each of the easy levels to see what was happening up ahead.

The first step is to create yourself a profile. Give yourself a name and choose if you want to play as Mario, Luigi or Princess Peach. Then you’re off starting your lessons.

There are five lessons, each contains different sets, such as numbers, letters, top keys, bottom keys, symbols and the entire keyboard. Each lesson is themed, the first being standard Mario head-butting blocks, plus under the sea, in the castle and typing a letter (of gobbledy-gook).

I’m not a huge Mario fan, but I did enjoy this typing tutor. It was addictive and it worked damnit! It’s a really good typing tutor. If you want to refine your skills so you can get that super-secretary job, or you want to be able to say more on IRC in a shorter span of time, then definitely have a turn with this. It’s abandonware, so it’s free. 🙂 And one of the best free ones out there I’m sure.

    Hi, great post and a great website that you’ve made. I had this Mario typing program back in the day, on my old 386 Packard Bell computer. I was going through all of my old floppies today and found disk #1 of Mario Teaches Typing, but I’m missing the 2nd disk. I’m glad I found your website so I could get this program back. Also, on the disk I have it says copyright 1992 Interplay. I think you got the date wrong, it’s not 1982, it’s 1992. Thanks again!!
