"Evertything about this typing program is heavy-duty - from its somber, futuristic interface depicting the lobby of Mavis's Learning Institute to the ponderous music to the countless options you have for setting user preferences, taking lessons, and checking your progress. If you want to play a game, you must choose a lesson with a game built in; you cannot go directly to games themselves.:
