【獨立、字形歷史、蒐集要素、書本閱讀】
地球上那麼多個字形,每個字形又有它的歷史以及建立過程
但你或許都沒有曾經去閱讀過這些歷史。

而這款遊戲將會從冒號開始,開始帶你進入各種文字的歷史。

遊戲內會看到有許多不同的字形以及文字,每個關卡中你可以蒐集到A~Z以及''&''
甚至還可以透過收集到每種文字的歷史書籍,書籍裡會介紹每種文字的歷史,不在只是介紹些遊戲架空世界的事情。

最後,這款遊戲你可以非常輕鬆的玩,配樂很能讓你放下所有沉重的事情
靜下心玩這款遊戲,還可以閱讀書籍來了解各種文字的歷史:)

為何是冒號?

透過兩顆半垂半硬的巧克力球,穿梭在字裡行間,沉浸活字印刷術歷史的縮影及意象美感中,操作上因有加速度讓蛋蛋很容易卡到陰,用手機玩更容易蛋疼。

你發現了嗎,不管選用甚麼字體,蛋丸永遠是兩粒蛋丸,字體造型就在於讓黑白和諧,在構思設計裡找到自己。

創意這種事情,真不是隨便說說;光看這遊戲名稱還以為是個打字遊戲。
沒想到是一個以字型發展為主軸的卷軸式遊戲,更有意思的是,你操控的不是個單一角色,而是兩個『點點』的旅途。
在旅途過程中盡是唯美的音樂與場景--這不僅僅是一款遊戲,更是一部藝術。

(目前也已推出手機版本, google play的價格為 新台幣 104 元。)


優點:

1. 場景美、音樂佳
2. 主題性強,饒富歷史背景
3. 關卡具有創意性
4. 特別的操作感 (加速度、彈跳。其實也說不上優缺點,見人見智)
5. 簡單到中等的難度


缺點:

1. 操作不易上手,由於是兩個『點點』的合體,不是那麼直觀的跳與跑。
2. 沒有中文化
3. 隱藏關卡會一直死一直死一直死......

先不否認這款遊戲具有一定得風格特色,
每一大關皆有屬於該字型意象的表現場景,
遊戲本身還有字型歷史、故事介紹書本。

但是以遊玩的角度,這款完全不及格,
操作性極低,你很難掌握那兩顆蛋蛋,
導致部分關卡區域要通關的話,運氣成分會占大多數。

最後,
雖然該遊戲分類屬於休閒遊戲,
但你真的享悠閒玩遊戲,我相信還有更多更好的選擇。
還有如果你跟我一樣喜歡解成就的話,
那就更別碰,因為我現在解到很火大。

Cons:
You can get stuck/become unable to jump/fall out of the minecart. Doesn't happen too often though, and the respawn points are fairly dense.
If you leave mid-chapter, you lose progress (collectibles) from that run.
The final (secret) level is infuriatingly difficult, as is getting one of the achievements that requires you to play through a whole level without dying.
The text on pretty much every page in the books has typos/missing words/grammatical errors/odd English, giving the impression that it wasn't written by a native English speaker, or even proofread for that matter.

Pros:
It's stylish, I suppose.

Ultimately, you'd be better off just reading the Wikipedia article on typography.

If you are looking for a fun video game I cannot recommend this game. If you are looking for an interactive opportunity to learn about the history of writing and typing then I can recommend this game (this is assuming the information taught is correct, this statement is necessary because of the issues I had seen in the game).

The Game
The controls are very difficult and somewhat unpredictable. When reading the books the game will sometimes not pause, this results: in sounds and music repeating itself on a few second loops, physics objects continue to move, resulting in deaths and missed items. Sometimes the mouse and the controller combine thus making menu navigation difficult. However, the level design throughout the game is pretty good, particularly the last few levels.

The Knowledge
Spelling and grammatical errors are much more prevalent than you would expect from a game teaching about writing and texts. Interesting subject matter, assuming they used reputable sources.

My Thoughts
Everything is mediocre. The gameplay is just good enough to be playable, the writing is just good enough to be understandable. Because they didn't do any part particularly well, it is hard to tell what was the makers focus. It is a shame though because had they tested the game better, fixed the controls a little or made you control a period instead of a colon and proofread the books, this could have been an excellent game. This is why I have my doubts about what I learned through this game, hopefully that historical aspect was their focus.

Type:Rider in really a unique game and interesting game. Is a game that manages to mix wisely entertainment and culture, provides a very well presented history of typography. Everything about it is relaxing and you never feel rushed. The game is beautiful and so is the music that accompanies it. This is the type of game that everyone can find something to like about it. The atmosphere and level design wonderfully compliment the information provided. The colon shape of your hero is good choice for the game mechanics as it allows you to grab corners and spin as you play. Overall, I had fun with the game, and enjoyed the artwork, music and concept.

I originally bought this game because I enjoyed the art style, the screen shots reminded me of Limbo, and because I am a fan of typography as a graphic artist. I have taken my fair share of typography courses and I figured it would be fun to see another spin on things in a fun educational style and at the same time enjoy a challenging puzzle game.

The good: The visual style and the music are both fantastic. I enjoyed the choice for the main character. The level designs are fun and each one uses the font you are currently in as the level building blocks. The slight variation of the jumping/swimming/riding carts was interesting. The end level puzzles with the white dot were fairly interesting as well and the most challenging part of the game. If this is all you are looking for then I recommend you try to get this in a sale at some point.

The bad: The game prides itself in "experience and uncover the history and secrets of Fonts and Characters" in the main description, yet all you get is a series of afterthought slides as a background as you are trying to go through each level. There is no narrative or even text, explaining, why you are going from Didot to Clarendon. When you onlock asterisks, you can read more about specific fonts, a short narrative could have elevated the game so much more than a wall of text here.

Each level you ride/jump from A to Z, some letters are for you to collect, some are for you to jump on to complete the level. Overall the main puzzles are fairly simplistic. Another big question mark moment in this game, is when, the colon you are playing, for no obvious reason but to try and add unimaginative difficulty to the game, starts getting shot at by a sniper somewhere. Thankfully this only goes on for one level. Overall somewhat shallow execution of an otherwise promissing concept.

Game is fairly short, finished it in 1.5 hours not even enough to get all the cards.

Again, this might be a fun play if you can get it during a sale, the graphics and audio are great, but the game is somewhat short and not very challenging.

I played this as a recommendation for a relaxing short game with easy achivements. Boy was that bad advice.
The first few levels are exactly that, soothing music relaxing levels. But after that its a total mess.
This is one of those clumsy control games, where it's all luck and no skill, and when it gets a bit harder it get extremelly stressful and annoying. It turns out to be such a tedious and frustrating experience, with some aweful level design.
This will leave you raging instead of satisfied, and is far form being the good game that can afford to be this messy and nerve wrecking.

If you want a quick enjoyable game similar to Thomas was alone you're in for a hell of a surprise.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this. Much funnier games in the "clumsy control" category and far better platforming games out there.
You probably own this dirt already since its practically free in every bundle. Just dont bother playing it.

7/10 Simple clear and effective.
I got this game on the recommendation of a friend who teaches computer design, including typography.
Yep, my friends are old-school geeky. Dig it? He told me that the game was fascinating and educational, but also fun.
I normally never believe anybody who says that with the exception of Carl Sagan, but I gave it a shot. I was instantly drawn into the game. The controls were simple enough to grasp instantly and I quickliy found myself happily shifting two little dots through an illustrated history of typesetting.
You read that right.
Surprisingly It's a smooth, engaging platformer with a highly original setting.

Type:Rider is a platformer which takes you on a journey through the history of typography, from the earliest known cave paintings and ancient civilisations through to the pixel art of the 1980s and (shudder) the advent of Comic Sans.

I first became aware of the game some time ago thanks to graphic designers raving about it on a group I follow, and their enthusiasm is largely understandable: The history you unlock as you progress is fascinating, well written (in that it's put into social, historical and cultural context), and very thorough. The level design in some places is like a gift to any student of art or design (the constructivist inspired sub-level in particular blew me away), but even if you're just an amateur designer with little training, you will get some crucial tips here about the kind of fonts that are most appropriate for your work.

Unfortunately, I have decided to reluctantly recommend the game because of a few problems towards the end. For the most part, it seems like a relaxing, educational platformer for those who want a bit of fun while learning about something that interests them. But on the last ("Pixel") level, the difficulty spike is insane. Some of the pixel-precise movements required to progress can get absolutely infuriating, and those in it for the learning are likely to give up at this point... which is a shame because it would be like getting to the end of a book only to find the last few pages missing.

So yeah... if you're a gamer with an interest in design, I say: Get it. If however you're not much of a gamer and only had your interest piqued in Type:Rider due to hype in graphic design circles, I say: Be cautious. If you don't have much experience with platformers, you may feel compelled to chuck your computer through the window towards the end.

Beautifuly crafted Limbo-esque game with easy puzzles and a trip to the history of Typography.

Pros: Amazing art and history lessons
Cons: You are a not very well controlled colon and I understand why it frustrates some players (but the controls actually worked for me)

Recommended only if you have patience.

Concept is different, art is beautiful, the lesson is interesting (too wordy for me, but still good).
Mechanics, however, are bad. The character is slow to respond and physics behave in a rather alien way. it takes some time and a lot of patience to get used to it. Definitely not instinctive.

Nice ambience, music, visuals, concept, and you get to learn a lot from it.
Controls are screwed up tho. Really slow.
Other than that, if you are extremely patient, you will enjoy it.

It's Limbo, but with absolutely terrible controls, and instead of a kid traversing a neverending stream of nightmares, you're a colon flailing and stumbling through the history of typography.

It's much better than it sounds, actually. I'd give it a 10/10 in presentation and originality; It's one of the best art games I've seen. All the educational passages are optional, but you'll still gain a deeper appreciation of typographical history even without reading any of them, thanks to the fascinating stage designs.

The controls are annoying and imprecise, and the last few levels are stupidly hard, and on rare occasions the physics can glitch out and get you stuck. But none of that really bothered me; there's no real pressure to perform well since there is no consequence for death, and checkpoints are numerous. Just relax and enjoy the awesome trip through history.

All the achievements are easy. Most are for 100% completeion. The hardest one has you going through a paricularly annoying level without dying, but it's still pretty easy thanks to some tricks. For achievement hunters, this game should be a no-brainer. You'll have it done with in 4 hours or less.

I loved it. I wish were there more games like this.

Interesting little platformer with unique settings and an awesome soundtrack. The game tells the story of how writing evolved throughout history (mainly fonts), thus making it easily classifiable as an educational program.

If you are interested in a hardcore platformer I would recommend skipping this.

This game is great at annoying the player on purpose. The poor controls and the occasional nearly impossible jump could have been excused, but the bonus level is clearly designed to be as unpleasant as possible, an obvious display of contempt for the player. Add to that the fact that the game is being sold on Steam for 400% of the asking price for the identical Android/iOS version, as well as the bug that prevents some users playing at their monitor's native resolution, and this game becomes a definite "do not buy".

The game teaches you a history of typography, gives you insights of origin of fonts, and makes you hate itself and Comic Sans. Though visual design of the game is close to awesome, controls really suck. And what do you want? — You are given a control over a pair of balls, and do I need to tell you how hard it is to control a pair of balls? So given many ways to die, you meet very repetitive yet a bit randomized gameplay: that way you can’t really get ready to the parts you die. Music though actually pretty good gets repetitive, too, and starts to annoy you.

So while hating Comic Sans is good, I would not recommend this game, there must be better ways to learn typography.
