Run, Jump, Swim, Kick!
- Mario's not just the world's king of adventure- he's your totally awesome, personal typing teacher!
- Make learning a blast with the legendary Mario characters and scenes. Just choose your own amazing identity- Mario, Luigi or The Princess, and shove off at your own pace through each exciting adventurous level:
- Level 1: Hit the blocks, kick the turtles, jump like crazy while fantastic hand visuals teach you to find all the letters on the keyboard without looking.
- Level 2: Plunge underwater to make your daring escape from chasing fish and you're typing whole words, no problem.

- Reach the end and Mario himself says congratulations, with a super special completion certificate- just for you!
