Příjemná hra (hudba krásně ladí s jednotlivými styly) s luxusním secret levelem u kterého se člověk zasměje a možná i trochu zanadává, než se mu jej podaří dohrát. Jedinou nevýhodou je snad délka hry, kde samotná hra je na nějaké 2 hodiny. Mnou pokořené za necelé 3 hodiny včetně všech achivů.

First off: This is meant to be an educational experience, if you don't like 'games' like this move on and don't read further.

The levels are composed of letters of whichever font you're playing, and they look gorgeous.
Everything is simple, yet aesthetic. The music fits, spot on. I was surprised on how everything works so well together. Each world has their own theme that reflects the font (and the era it's from). For someone like me, who didn't really know anything about font history, Type:Rider was truly informative. It never seemed boring and always kept my interest.
The only downside I can think of, is that sometimes the physics seem a bit off. Otherwise well worth a buy, defenitely while it's on sale.

Beautiful but really short and easy game.

Definitely NOT worth getting at full price, so keep an eye on sales as it's still a well-executed game. If you have little interest in typography or design, I doubt you will enjoy it, as it's merely a blend of platformers and "trials"-style games, with pretty short and simple levels. The completion time is just a few hours.

Type:Rider is a puzzle platform game designed more of an educational experience to introduce you the history of typography than to provide a thrilling and testing game experience. As the aforementioned educational experience it's really interesting, purely as a game it can be frustrating.

You control two balls, a colon(?), inexorably linked across 10 levels, one intro, 1 hidden and 8 main ones representing the various ages of typography each with a font theme appropriate to the era. From Gothic to Time, Helvetica to Pixel, each level has it's own unique idenity and all are very different, thankfully never feeling grindy.

On each level the goal to collect the entire typeface, A through Z, 6 or so asterisks' and a hidden ampersand. Apart from the sort of hidden ampersand, you really won't have to go out of you way to collect anything. None of the levels are difficult, you are meant to experience this game, not be challenged by it and with the fine ambient music, levels are a joy. Each main level is split into 4 parts, two collectable platforming sections and 2 puzzle areas. These puzzle areas range from Arkanoid and Peggle clones to shifting a third ball around through typeface to open a door, all doors requiring a third ball, key, to open.

As a game it is let down by frustrating controls, the wall jumping doesn't quite work right. Jumping is also an inexact science and once you get to the final level there are sections that really deserve better controls. This game isn't Super Meat Boy, but a little more time was needed to finesse the gaming.

It's definitely worth your time, a couple of hours, at a decent price, but I can't help the feeling that if they had made the control and physics more predictable, it would have made a better game.

Very simple platformer where you play as a couple of wheels (colon?) while exploring the history of typography.
The game has great music and a very great artstyle.
Sadly, the game is also really short (around 2 hours), but somehow it seemed fine.
