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 :)

This game has an absolutely fascinating premise because it's really unique. Making a game to familiarize people with the world of the typographic is a pretty cool concept, but the game itself simply does not deliver enormously well. Playing as a colon sounds like a lot of fun until you realize that the colon will frequently get stuck on things in a really frustrating manner. It's still really cool and definitely worth a try if cheap enough, but it's hard to recommend given how frustrating it can be to play.

To hear the full review, listen to the episode on Game Hoard Podcast

Type:Rider is certainly a unique title. It's an educational platformer from the European television network ARTE. In the game you play as a pair of dots, traversing levels that tell the history of type fonts, starting with the earliest forms of written human expression in cave paintings and ending with internet memes. That's quite a lot of ground to cover and Type:Rider does it elegantly, with each level showing you the art and sounds of the culture creating each font and providing you with encyclopedic texts of the font's history. Type:Rider often feels like a virtual museum of sorts and I am sure that anyone interested in type fonts or history will get a lot of enjoyment out of this aspect.

Unfortunately, I found the actual gameplay to be quite lacking. Controlling the two dots together doesn't work great, as one dot sort of drags behind the other one. Jumps and momentum just didn't feel right and the game as a whole felt very floaty. Luckily, there is no real punishment for death, as you just respawn to right before you died. There are some basic switch and timer puzzles in some of the levels and I found these to be a lot more fun than the platforming. Other than that, there isn't much to do. Levels are fairly straightforward. There is an aspect of collecting where you can find all the characters of a font in each level but it ultimately doesn't serve a purpose besides padding out the game. The whole experience only lasted us a little over 2 hours and it's definitely a case of style over substance.

Just excellent. A very creative game with some excellent art direction. Especially love how the secret level is wonderfully opposed to the feel of the rest of the game, which captures the secret level font perfectly. A real gem.

I really wanted to like this game because I'm into graphic design, and the whole process of playing it felt like meeting old friends again... in a very unfortunate situation.

Press right - colon goes left.
Press left - colon goes right.
Press jump - falls down and dies.
Respawn, press jump again - gets stuck on a corner.
Press right to climb the corner - goes left, falls down and dies.
Respawn, jump, fall into a gap you can't get out without restarting.

I really liked the visual side though, it's a pretty game, especially to someone like me who likes fonts anyway.

Giving it a 5/10 for the idea and looks.

"Edutainment" used to be one of those words that would send people running to the hills, at least until we developed nostalgia for things like MathBlaster and Encarta Mind Maze. It's not even a term that's used anymore, despite a rise in indie games that actually make good on the promise of being educational AND fun. Which brings us to Type:Rider, a physics platformer based around what really should be the most boring subject imaginable, the history of typefaces. Instead, we have a beautiful, challenging game that manages to make its topic more engaging than any textbook could ever hope to.

Your avatar in Type:Rider is either a plucky umlaut or an alignment-challenged colon, two dots that roll along the landscape like wheels on an invisible car. I know the jump from one ball to two doesn't sound like much innovation in the crowded physics-platformer genre, but this allows for some really clever maneuvers like cartwheel flips, wheelie jumps, and dangling under platforms. You'll need all of these tricks to navigate across the giant letters and silhouettes that make up the beautiful, otherworldly levels. Each level is themed after a period in the history of the written word, everything from primeval script to printing presses to HTML, with gimmicks befitting the era. You'll ski down cursive curves, float on classical notes, hop across postmodern art, and bounce on blinking cursors.

Each level has six asterisks to collect along the main path, 26 letters of the alphabet that require some platforming to nab, and a hidden ampersand (that & thingy) that's quite a challenge to reach. The collectable symbols are a nice touch to keep you going but it's the asterisks that really make the game, because each unlocks a short article about the history of typefaces from that period. You would think that breaking up gameplay with educational passages would ruin the flow of the game, but each is short, interesting, and well-written enough to make for a welcome interlude. I honestly knew nothing about Claude Garamont or why sans-serif fonts are called that, but I was delighted to learn within the context of the game. And even if you aren't, the articles are entirely optional to even open.

The actual platforming is a perfect match for a game of this nature, challenging but without ever reaching frustrating levels, and with several relaxing segments and thoughtful puzzles. The different periods are visual joys to traverse, and an generous checkpointing system makes it easy to revisit your favorite parts. There's even a secret level in everyone's favorite love-to-hate font that hits the perfect tone for the game. All of these elements make Type:Rider an unexpected gem from a dormant genre, and a very strong case for its return to boot.

The premise of this thinly-veiled edutainment title is interesting, but the lack of polish means it is not very fun to play for long in a single stretch. It feels like it belongs in a technology museum where visitors can play around with it for a couple of minutes at a time.

Level design needs more playtesting and adjustments. Controls need more fluidity. Poorly optimised. Needs a much more powerful computer than the screenshots would suggest, especially considering that this game runs on Android tablets.

I have no idea why the developers describe this as a transmedia piece, as there are zero transmedia elements that I can discern. It is, however, a somewhat interesting multimedia art presentation.

Other than a few frustrating spots and translation oddities, I was very pleased with Type:Rider. The concept of combining education, art, and gameplay is one that really works for this title and has left me looking for games that also attempt to achieve this combination of elements. I am not very experienced or good at platformers. I found some parts of Type:Rider to be a little annoying and immersion-breaking, because I went into the game looking for an experience rather than a challenge. Most of the time, though, Type:Rider delivered this experience that I was looking for.

I'm kind of neutral on this game, but it left more of a positive than negative taste in my mouth, so I'll recommend it.

Pros:
-Cool concept
-Learn about fonts and their history while playing a game
-Visuals of the levels give a good amount of information about fonts before even reading the texts you unlock
-Nice art style
-Music is alright (can get annoying in certain areas if you keep dying)

Cons:
-Platforms at times are too far apart for a smooth transition from one to the other, ruining great moments
-The physics of the dots. They bounce backwards when you try jumping up and don't build momentum quickly enough
-Some letters are hard to get while staying alive (mainly because of the controls)

Overall, it was a good game, but seriously hindered by its flaws. It wasn't meant to be something like Super Meat Boy, so it was hard to tell if some of the difficult parts were on purpose, or overlooked flaws.

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.

A fantastic journey through the world of type, Type:Rider will drag you from ancient times to the rise of digital era and expose the beauty and perfection of the best typefaces out there. I really love this game and how beautiful it is, both in terms of visual and game design.

Controls are good, though the nature of the character (you're playing as 2 dots, a typographical colon) you're playing makes them a bit annoying sometimes. The only time it really starts to be a problem is during a hard-as-nails "secret" level as you're pressured for time there. But outside of that, it is incredibly well-made, savepoints are abundant and some of the mechanics are really really well-made.

Levels deliver not only some story, but also mood of the era, from bleak and depressive Gothic and heavenly renaissance Didot to hectic 20th century with Times and Helvetica. And you can guess what Comic Sans MS has for a level mood and structure...

Many, many games arent even as good as this mechanically, let alone visually. If you like beauty, interested in typography at any level or just like good platforming - get this game.

Great and fun puzzle/platformer game with nice graphics where you can learn about history of typography. Levels are sometimes a little bit harder but its beatable every time and the bonus level is the best level. Only sad thing is that the game is not translated into more languages, so people from Czech, Slovakia, Hungary etc. with limited English will not learn much about typography even if they are interested.

PS. Fu.ck that Desperado achievement.

Type:Rider was an impulse buy during a sale for me and rarely have I ever so little regretted buying a game. It's both a very beautiful platformer, a little bit on the casual side, and at the same time an historic journey about letters. What might sound weird at first, does come together to a little gem which can and will be greatly enjoyed.

If you liked Limbo and have a knack for artsy design and can deal with mildly casual gameplay, this is an addition to your library anyone should try out for a buck or two.

It's not a very long game, it's not an overly complex game. But it is both beautiful and fun. And it's priced exactly right for what you get.

+ I like the general mood of the game.

- sometimes when I open the book, then click resume - controls are locked, can't move at all, and have to restart the game.
- the screen resolution is capped at the 1366x768 this isn't good for LCDs with higher native resolution.
- if I alt-tab and get back to the game - there's no music playing anymore. Till you restart or get to next level.
- up and down arrow buttons in the books don't work for me when I click on them with mouse - have to use mouse wheel to scroll or click and drag the text.
- when you got to the second book for example. You see it open up... if you close it... and see other book then want to open it up again - you can't. You have to click resume and drive the colon all the way back. There are plenty of poor design choices like this that meke you waste time since the game assumes you will do things in certain order and if you don't follow the exact sequence, you need to do it over again.
- game's originally in French - translation is not great.


Still... even with the flaws, it's an unpolished gem - if you want an adventure through the texts of history - literally - you will most definitely appreciate this little game.

I liked the game, its informative factor and appealing style. Clarendon 3rd level is completely broken though (if you want to beat it without dying). It's not even difficult, it's totally awful mechanics-wise and frustrating as hell. Rest of the game is pretty damn fun.

So.. there are a lot of people claiming this game is slow, you cannot be fast because of clumsy controls, physics, etc. My first playthrough was 1:15 hours long. After that I tried things, found glitches and came up with strats.
The result: All levels completed in 25 minutes.
Watch the run here:

Conclusion: you suck.

But seriously, this game is a short but sweet experience.
Every level is unique in design and plays a bit differently.
The Sountrack is fitting and most importantly: You'll learn about fonts and their history.

Recommended.

Öncelikle oyunu oynayanların hem fikir olduğu bir konuya değinmek istiyorum. Oyunun müzikleri muazzam. Oyunun sanatsal yapısı ise daha farklı bir özellik olarak ortaya çıkıyor. Her yazı tipinin ana temayı oluşturduğu bölümlerden oluşan oyunda, örneğin; Gothic yazı karakteri bölümünü oynarken bölüm müziği size gothic atmosferi o kadar harika sağlıyor ki işte bundan etkilenmemek mümkün değil. Bir diğer örnek ise Clarendon. Bu yazı karakteri çoğumuzun bildiği bir karakter. Şu meşhur WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE afişlerinde kullanılmış. İşte bu yazı karakterinin ana konu olduğu bölümlerde bu sefer müzikler sizi vahşi batıya götürüyor. Bu örnekler çoğaltılabilir fakat oyun deneyimini size "bu yazı karakterleri" ile aktaramam :) Ayrıca Pixel bölümünden sonra oyun bitti sanmayın. Gizli bölüm olarak efsane yazı karakterlerinden biri olan Comic Sans Ms var. Oyunun en eğlenceli bölümlerinden biri. Son olarak; Açılış ekranında daha iyi bir oyun deneyimi için kulaklık kullanın uyarısı çıkıyor. Bu uyarıya kesinlikle kulak asın . İyi oyunlar

Grafikleri, müzikleri, hikayeleri vs. bakımından çok iyi bir oyun olmuş. Grafiklerin oyunu anlatıyormuş hissine kapılabilir, müzikleri ile rahatlayabilir, hikayeleri ile düşüncelere dalabilirsiniz. (Hikayeler ingilizce olduğu için bol miktarda ingilizce ihtiyacı duyabilirsiniz.)

Oyunun amacını biraz anlatalım;
Oyunun amacı bölüm içerisinde bulunan harfleri, yıldızları ve bölümün herhangi bir köşesine gizlenmiş olan ve/veya karakterini (&) bularak bölümleri tamamlamak... Ayrıca oyunun gizli bir bölümüde bulunuyor. Orada da aynı şekilde ilerleniliyor fakat bölümün herhangi bir yerinde düşerseniz en başa atıyor. Her bölümün kendine özel bir hikayesi var. Ayrıca bölümlerde zorlu kısımlar, ufak bulmacalı kısımlar da bulunuyor. En azından indirime girdiğinde bir alıp denemenizi tavsiye ederim. (İndirime girmeden bile alıp oynanabilecek kısa bir oyun olmuş.)

Her bölümde, belli bir fonta ait harfleri toplayıp o fontu tamamlamaya çalıştığımız bir platformer oyun.

Gayet zevkliydi. Bölüm tasarımları, temsil edilen fontlarla olabildiğince uyumluydu. Özellikle "Pixel" bölümü çok eğlenceliydi. :)

Kesinlikle oynamaya değer bir oyun olmuş.

Tipografi nedir, ne değildir'i anlatan kısa ama güzel oyun. Steam yerine herhangi bir bundledan almanızı öneriri.

Oynarken sıkılmadan ilerleyeceğiniz hoplayıp zıplayıp platform oyunu oynadığınızı hissedeceğiniz bi oyun ama oyun çabucak bitecek ve öylece bitip gitmiş olacak sadece. O sebeple steamde bu fiyata almanızı önermem indirim bekleyin yada herhangibir bundle'dan alın.
