Typer Shark! is a typing game created and developed by PopCap Games.

The game follows a diver who is searching through wrecks at the bottom of the sea to look for treasure. As he/she descends to the sea floor, waves of sharks or piranhas will appear. The player must type the word on the side of the animal to eliminate it.

As the game progresses, more types of creatures will appear. There will be more types of sharks and piranhas, each tougher than before. Bonus jellyfish will appear, but they do not harm the diver. Instead, typing the words on their side will give the player bonus points and extra zapper charges. Mutant fish only appear after the player completes an expedition and in abyss mode after the player reaches 2400 feet and below, but are extremely rare. Mutant fish move extremely fast and always come alongside a school of piranhas, and only one of them appear at a time. Bosses are to be defeated to complete a level every few levels:Level 4, Level 7/8/9, Level 11/12 and Level 12/13, and every 1000 feet in abyss mode.

Computer science and information technology may seem like the same thing. In actuality, three fields are typically associated with the study of computers at the college level. Computer engineering, information technology and computer science are all disciplines within the same realm of study. However, each specialty focuses on specific aspects of the field, and careers within the three areas vary greatly.

Computer Science

Website Code

Computer scientists are, in fact, scientists. They are focused with the theory of computational applications. That means they understand the “why” behind computer programs. Using algorithms and advanced mathematics, computer scientists invent new ways to manipulate and transfer information. Computer scientists are generally concerned with software, operating systems and implementation.
