A typing practice game for X similar to typespeed and tuxtype.
Words chosen from the system's wordlist fall from the top of
the screen and must be typed correctly to score.  In a challenge
stage, random sequences of characters appear instead of words.
Head-to-head networked play is possible with xletters-duel.
