Sup human? I’m BAIKOH, and I’m all about typing. Write words by tapping tiles that randomly fall from the top of your screen. Each tile has a letter so… you’re getting the idea, genius.
Type quickly and constantly to destroy tiles and keep them from reaching the top of your screen, or just use power-ups to make everything explode. That will work too.
