Wiki Invaders, typing game that uses live Wikipedia content

Here's a nice idea...a free typing game, written in Flash, that pulls the content you type from Wikipedia. You get to choose a Wikipedia topic, too. This means you can read whatever you want, while you're practicing your typing and trying not to get blown up.

More...Another interesting thing about this game is that it was written in 12 hours, for a contest. There are a lot of game design contests out there, not just for vid games, but for RPGs and others. I like how they generate a lot of interesting content. It must be satisfying to come up with a playable game in so little time. For info on how the game was written, see this page.
