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

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.
