Wordwise 2

 

Wordwise 2 is a educational cartridge for people who want to learn the art of touch typing.  Wordwise 2 offers three different variations to help develop typing speed and familiarity with key locations.  While almost everyone today knows how to type quickly thanks to the advent of computers, it wasn't a common skill back in the 70's.

 

Since most people probably won't care about learning to type, Wordwise 2 also offers a word game called Cypher.  In Cypher two teams of players each take turns creating a series of words, which are then scrambled by the computer.  The other team must try to unscramble them in the shortest amount of time.  While this isn't exactly the best game ever created, it probably wasn't a bad waste of time 30 years ago.
