    I remember sometime around 1989-1995 or so playing this game in elementary school, all I really remember were the names of the villains, maybe Troglobytes? Something very similar, and I think it was a typing game. I bet no one gets it right! Bonus: Another old apple game, from the same era, where you use basketballs, trampolines, bowling balls and other random objects to achieve a goal (turn a light on?) If anyone can get either, then I would be veeery grateful.

    Word Munchers and Number Munchers. The villains were Troggles (short for "Troglodyte"). One of my favorite games in elementary school -- didn't know it was still around as late as '95.

    It wasn't a typing game -- instead you'd be given a grid of words or numbers and your character would have to eat all the ones that matched a certain criterion.
