Original combination of gameplay, history & art

Type:Rider is the first game developed for the European tv channel Arte, which focuses on arts & arts history. So it comes as no surprise that the actual theme of the game is all about history: in the course of ten levels, the player discovers the history of ... typography, of the different fonts used from the earliest printed books back in the Renaissance right up to the newest developments.

While this may sound boring and very school-alike, it isn't. The development studio, Ex Nihilo, has managed to transform this theme into an interesting and original game. The actual gameplay is rooted in the tradition of the platformer: you control two dots, who travel through a level filled with letters and other items related to typography. There are problems to be overcome, gaps to be jumped and letters to be collected. Played with a controller, the game let me control my dots quite accurately, and even as a platform-noob, I didn't encounter too many difficulties in finishing all the levels (only the bonus level took me quite some time). Besides jumping and controlling the dots' speed, there is no other action, so no firing or whatsoever.

But there is more to this game than some simple and well-known platform mechanics. Traversing through the levels, you'll unlock a lot of historical information on the different fonts and the context in which they were developed and used. The presentation of this is very well done, with short to-the-point texts and a lot of visual information. Graphically, the game is a gem: every level is transformed into an evocation of the period of its particular font, with sounds and music increasing the historical feeling. The game does have trading cards & achievements, some of which are challenging and encourage you to discover every corner of every level.

Highly recommended to everyone with some interest in history and/or arts. Those looking for an exciting and challenging platform-game should probably go elsewhere though.

Type:Rider is a lovely little puzzle plattformer with stunning background graphics, interesting story and very nice music.

To explain this more:
You play as 2 marks in a 2d world and need to jump, roll and puzzle through the different worlds. The worlds are dedicated to different fonts and show you each and every letter, which you also need to collect. There are bonus letters (the amperstamps) which you can collect for achievements.

The levels are well designed and the background absolutely incredible! The sounds are also enjoyable, completing the gameplay experience.

The game has a few difficult spots but is overall absolutely doable for casual people (like me). With a playtime of 5-6 hours it might be a little short, but some achievements ask you to do something more difficult, making you replay some of the levels.

I enjoyed the game very much and i can only recommend everyone else to try it out yourself.
10/10 Greatest Plattformer i've played until now.

This game was hella cute and relaxing. You play as a colon adventuring through text, collecting all of the letters A-Z, *'s, and 1 hidden & on each. It's not very challenging or long, but enough to be engaging and interesting. Pretty cool game.

Indie, Artsy, Educational, Platformer.

Roll and bounce your balls across an obstacle course. Watch as your balls get squashed, trapped, spiked, shot at, or disappear all together. Learn all about the history of written and typed language. Playing with your balls has rarely been more educational.

I found this game easy, with only a couple of retries on certain sections, I breezed right through the ten levels. But I can see why this might be frustrating for those not adept at this genre. It was good quick fun and I admit I learnt some stuff along the way. Game play and controls are super simple. Nice mix of environments, great backgrounds, good music and sound for each age, and a little touch of logic puzzles to keep things interesting.

I got my copy in one of the eight cheap bundles it has so far appeared in, but it is alo regularly offered at 75% off.

Never before have I seen such an amazing concept ruined by terrible execution.

For all of the time this game spends talking about design, you think the developers would have paid attention. Many of the levels are needlessly punishing, made worse by the infuriating controls. It's frequently possible to get stuck and need to restart the game. The "book" translations on the history of the fonts are poorly done and often nonsensical.

The visuals are nice, the music is fitting, but the gameplay itself is lackluster at best. Pick it up on sale if you must.
