Type:Rider é jogo de plataforma, casual, desenvolvido pelo estúdio Ex Nihilo e publicado pela editora Plug In Digital, lançado em novembro de 2013 para as plataformas PC e Androides.

No game o jogador assume “dois pontos” em fases onde o principal objetivo é coletar letras que estão espalhadas pelo cenário. A jogabilidade é bem simples, basicamente você avança pelo cenário podendo se movimentar para frente e para trás, realizando saltos para ultrapassar os mais diversos obstáculos e resolvendo puzzles que vão surgindo ao longo das fases. Apesar de simples tal jogabilidade pode se demonstrar frustrante em alguns momentos já que nem sempre os movimentos são realizados como o esperado, resultando em muitas e muitas mortes, porem o game tem pontos de check-ponts bem variados minimizando um pouco essa frustração.

O game conta com oito fases, além de uma fase secreta, onde cada uma dessas fases se foca em um tipo de Fonte de texto e conta a origem da criação da mesma. Com isso o jogador tem a possibilidade de conhecer um pouco da história da Tipografia através dos séculos. Um conteúdo que pode até ser interessante para alguns, mas se torna bem descartável para a maioria, principalmente pelos textos estarem totalmente em inglês.

Um ponto positivo do game são os cenários de cada fase, todos eles referenciando de forma bem interessante e artística cada tipo de fonte representada e sua história, aliados a trilha sonora agradável o game se torna bem convidativo, mas nada que o torne memorável.

Type:Rider é um game casual, que não chega a trazer nenhuma novidade ao gênero, mas que pode acrescentar um bom conteúdo didático ao jogador, principalmente aos que dominam o inglês, é um bom jogo, mas que não chega a ser essencial para os amantes de jogos independentes.

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.

Type: Rider is a short, 1,5-2 hour platformer about the existence of fonts, Or something like that.
You play as 2 balls (no, not those kind of balls ;)) and you have to navigate through levels by rolling and jumping around, ocassionally solving simple, physics related puzzles.

There are 10 levels in total and every level has an entire alphabet for you to collect, in addition to some history pages, which can be found by collecting asterix symbols (*), or secrets, which can be found by collecting the ampersands (&).

Near the end of the game some of the gameplay becomes a bit annoying because the physics don't exactly react the way you want them to, resulting in many accidental deaths. Especially the bonus level (which is one of the shortest levels) had me in rage mode. It's by far the worst level in the entire game, but thankfully it's entirely optional.

All in all Type: Rider isn't that bad. And because it's a short experience it's a game anyone can try and finish.

A short but sweet review for a short but sweet game; Type:Rider is a simple and delicate platformer type game - great for the casual gamer! It involves some clever physics mechanics, it's very pretty to look at and listen to, little to no learning curve so it's quite easy to play, and you may even learn a thing or two about the history of typography (font) while playing. It's a little bundle of quality craftsmanship from the developers/designers, you can tell a lot of love went into the game.

It's affordable as it is, and if you see it on sale, go ahead and grab it. I'd definitely recommend it to anybody.

8/10. Enjoy!

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.
