Textminator Arcade Game Simulates All The Fun Of Text Messaging

Textminator Arcade Game Simulates All The Fun Of Text Messaging

At what point did video arcades go from fun zombie killing and racing games, to simulators recreating mundane tasks like cooking and now text messaging?! That’s right, the Textminator (that’s what it’s really called) features a set of stainless steel phone-like keypads that allow 1 or 2 players to compete in a series of texting challenges including an arcade mode and racing the clock. It’s even got a built-in camera allowing egomaniacs to snap a photo of themselves for the high-score board. Now I know there are cellphone users out there who pride themselves on their texting speed, but why would anyone want to pay the $1 or $2 this elaborate setup will no doubt charge to prove their texting prowess when they can just do it on the cellphones they’re already paying for?!

    And I thought texting couldn't get more fun. Boy am I a schmuck!

    Well it could be a great training tool for those that compete in texting competitions, but as a game it seems to be lacking for me. It's like playing typing games after you learn the homerow and the rest of the keys location and paying for it.

    There are texting competitions? That's …sad.

    I've played “learn to type” games, and while I still don't know the number row, I don't think that I would want to play this game for very long. It is flashy.
