The developer doesn't know how to make a game. They really have to learn a lot more about game design and programming before they go and try to make something like this. Not to say that it can't be a little fun, the atmosphere and graphics are good. The core gameplay is what is really holding this game back, because it's too hard to control and the levels are poorly designed for the mobility of your character. Imagine driving through a mall with a bus without hitting anything, and you're about there. Would reccomend if it was properly made.

It was fun at first when things were easy, but once the game grew a bit harder the physics in the game went to mush. The controls were hard to maneuver and it made me rage more than I ever thought I could with a game like this.

I really wanted to like this (as I really did like the art and the music) but I just can't.

I beat the game before I realized it had actually tought me something. It's actually a fun educational game, it doesn't shove it in your face. Beautiful and fun and it reminded me of when flash games were all there was. Graphics are a 4/5 and the music is great.

Come take a journey through typography and learn a little about the origins of literacy. This sounds like it would be a blast... and it is: at first. But that's for later.

Type:Rider is an interesting platforming game that has you controlling a colon. You jump slide, bounce, etc through levels collecting the alphabet while avoiding various dangers. The difficulty scales the further you progress.

The story aspect of the game was quite fascinating. I learned a lot about fonts, and where they came from through this game. It reinforced certain things I had learned before and added more details to them as well. Type:Rider can be a very fun game for exploring this piece of culture.

However, This game has it's positives and negatives.

Graphics: Honestly a very beautiful game that with it's simplistic designs still keeps you wanting to see what's coming next.

Music: Aurally the music was wonderful. I never felt like it should stop looping or otherwise.

Achievements: Some of these ... are near impossible. Be prepared to sink some time into it.

Game Mechanics: The first levels are a lot of fun. you are learning the mechanics of the game and how your two dots will interact with the world. However, the further and further you get into the game, the more and more frustrated you will be by that same mechanic. Often I thought I'd go one way, but didn't get it quite right. Further the game has insta kill type situations where you have no idea you could die, till you die. Fortunately, death isn't hard to recover from.

Bugs: The most annoying bug which happened at least 3 times during my playthrough, was the 'end buttons' not triggering even though they were all pressed. I had to restart the level to get it to work, which was extremely frustrating. Another bug I had was when I was reading entries, the game would show me the wrong book, in front of me, but open the book I wanted to the side where I couldnt' read it.

Fun Factor: The first 3 books or so are ridiculously fun. But as you continue it gets to be more and more frustrating. Toward the end I felt like I was just waiting to read the next section of the books in game rather than looking forward to platforming.

Overall 5/10 - Why don't they have a neutral option. :/
Get it in a bundle or for free :)

Meg kellett emésztenem egy picit ezt mielőtt írtam volna róla akár egy szót is. Maga az ötlet, a játék, meg úgy egyben az egész nagyon is jó. Sztorija nincs neki, tehát arról le kell mondania mindenkinek. Mivel sokkal inkább a játékmenetre és dízájnra van fektetve a hangsúly. Na meg arra hogy a csillagokat összegyűjtsük és megkapjuk a könyvlapokat amikből megtudhatunk pár dolgot arról hogy hogyan is alakult ki maga az írás, illetve maguk a karakterek, azok formái sőt sokszor az inditatás is, hogy miért készültek el. Na ezt egészen napjainkig követhetjük. Én kifejezetten érdekesnek találtam ezt a részét neki. Pedig eziránt a terület íránt sose érdeklődtem életemben, viszont így egy kis beletekintést még is kapunk.
Az irányitás mondhatni egyszerű, tudunk ugrani meg előre hátra menni, kész. Nincs túlbonyolitva a dolog, főleg hogy a "főszereplő" egy kettőspont. A dízájn meg csillagos őtős. Reflektál nem csak a betűstílusokra, de az adott korra és helyszínre is. Iszonyat szépen játszik a színekkel, a hangokkal és a formákkal is. Zseniális ilyen téren, művészet terén csillagos őtős.

Viszont az utolsó 2 pálya hajtépő. Nem azért mert rossz hanem csak mert nehezebb lett mint a többi. A Pixel adot volt mert ott nyilván minden kocka, és elég nehéz sokszor ugrálni. A Comic Sans (bonusz) meg csak szimplán egy hatalmas trollkodás, de ettől függetlenül iszonyat nagy örömet okoz az embernek ha megcsinálja. Na emiatt a kettő pálya miatt kellet megemésztenem ezt, mert iszonyat sokat anyáztam, és legszívesebben a sárga földig hordtam volna a játékot.

Kimaxolni nem nehéz, gyakorlatilag mindent össze kell szedni, meg van egy pálya amit halál nálkül kell teljesíteni. 5-6 óra alatt kivitelezhető.

Én adok neki egy jó 8/10-et. Ötletes, szépen kivitelezett, de a játékmenetett lehetett volna még egy picit csiszolni, vannak pillanatok amikor nem úgy viselkedik a két pöttyünk ahogy gondolnánk. Ennek elenére ajánlott mindenféleképen. Sőt magyar nyelvvel még akár oktatási rendszerben is eltudnám képzelni.

It's easy to take fonts for granted. After all, hundreds of them come preloaded in even the simplest word processors, allowing for uninhibited freedom for formatting whatever we might need. But what most probably forget, is that it didn't use to be like this; those fonts came from somewhere, each a painstaking creation designed with a specific use in mind, which have nonetheless endured for generations and are now being put to use for far different purposes.

In many ways Type:Rider acts as a sort of mini history lesson to the legacy of fonts, a subject far more interesting in execution than on paper. From the earliest known texts to modern computer code, it's surprisingly fascinating to see the evolution of printed text and how various fonts came into being. There's a special place in my heart for games that can be both entertaining and educational, and this is certainly among the best I've played to date.

If you're shaking your head thinking there's nothing you'd rather not do than read over history descriptions while playing a game, it's worth noting that it's entirely optional to do so. It's never in your faced or forced upon you, but if you are planning to dismiss this side of the experience you'll be left with an otherwise rather bland and clumsy platformer. I was able to look past many of the weaker aspects of the game because I found the artistic and academic elements to be interesting in themselves, but those looking for even an average platformer are likely to come away disappointed.

This falls solely on the controls, a terribly clunky lesson in frustration as you attempt to maneuver a character that seems to like nothing more than to flip wildly out of control at the worst moments. Most levels make up for this by being relatively simple to traverse, but on a handful of occasion more precision is required which proves truly aggravating. The secret level being the most difficult and featuring no checkpoints only adds insult to injury, making me wonder why the developers chose to add such a challenging segment to a game that seems designed to be a relaxing an accessible experience.

Type:Rider is far from a perfect game, maybe not even a good one, but it is a unique and interesting endeavor to give a little background on a subject I'd never have bothered to look into otherwise. For those who can appreciate it more as an art piece than a traditional platformer, it's an intriguing slice of edutainment the strength of which lies in its excellent aesthetic and nontraditional source material, and not its gameplay. Anyone already bored reading this review should go ahead and pass on it, as there are dozens of other games that will be a far better fit for what you're after.

If nothing else, I doubt you'll ever look at comic sans quite the same way again.

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.

Type:Rider is a strikingly ambitious game. It’s a platformer that has you play as a pair of dots who jump, swim, and solve environmental puzzles to progress. It’s also an educational game that teaches you about the history of typography as you play.The game plays out as a series of side-scrolling levels that hinder your progress with puzzles and obstacles instead of enemies. The usual platformer ingredients are on display here, like spikes, lava, water, and moving platforms. It might not sound terribly original, but the developers have pumped tons of creativity into the game’s design. Each world is based on a particular font, and the environments are made up of giant letters in that font, plus whatever new printing technology became available at the time.The controls aren’t as precise as they could be, but checkpoints are closely spaced so you never lose much progress. Every good platformer has collectibles, and here they’re the letters of the alphabet. A number of asterisks are also scattered throughout the levels; grabbing them unlocks sections of text that teach the history of writing and typography. The history is fun to read even if you’re not particularly interested in fonts.Like in Limbo, the graphics are silhouetted and stunning, set against abstract pages of text, drawings, and photographs. The music is pleasantly atmospheric, changing with the timeframe the levels take place in.One problem– and it’s a minor one– is that stopping to read the text sections as you collect asterisks in the game does a disservice to the gameplay. It’s far better to play the levels without stopping for the history lessons, and then read the texts you’ve collected between levels.Despite the somewhat mushy controls, Type:Rider is an incredibly fun, unique platformer. It manages to entertain and inform in equal measure, which is more than most games try to do.

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.

This game has a great soundtrack and an absolutely gorgeous art style. As a visual design piece, Type Rider is brilliant.

Unfortunately Type Rider's doesn't quite live up to its visuals. The first half of the game offers almost no challenge and while the second half is more difficult, most of the challenge comes from fighting the game's clumsy and unpredictable physics in scenarios where skill takes a backseat to luck.

While the game is occasionally enjoyable, it's hard to recommend it to anyone who isn't a typography buff.

As a graphic designer, I am an admirer of great typography. This game, with its subject matter and beautiful style, was easy to take a chance on. In the end: Is it informative? Very. Is it beautiful both in terms of audio and visuals? Extremely. Is it fun? Not really.

For me, the control (especially jumping mechanics) just never felt quite "right". That is easily the biggest source of frustration in the game. While some sequences are downright inspired, others are grit-your-teeth annoying.

The informative nature of the game and the actual gameplay seem at times to be at odds with each other. For example, unlocking an informative page gives you a prompt to view it immediately - while I recommend doing this since the visuals and audio in the portion of the level you are in will be tuned towards this piece of info, it halts the gameplay and can break the pacing. In addition, occasionally the game will destroy you as soon as you return to the gameplay and cause you to have to replay the small sequence again. It feels like a punishment for doing what the game is designed to have you discover.

In the end, I just can't recommend the game.

Great concept, amazing visuals, interesting historical lessons. But this game is a platformer, so it needs responsive controls. Alas, this is not the case here. Movement is sluggish, the character (colon, in fact) reacts slowly and even the most basic actions require a lot of patience and luck.

Bottom line: this is a nice history lesson, but a bad platformer.
