    Just to mention - I've just finished the ANDROID version of the game, not the iOS, but I assume it's pretty much the same.

    The idea is nice, the execution is pretty awesome, and while I'm not sure how many people would be fascinated by the subject this game focuses, it's still a lovely way to pass some time, especially in this version which fits great to smartphones.

    The artistic style of the game is also very nice to watch, and the settings of each level are enjoyable, and while some sections could be rather frustrating, the game usually flows well and I really enjoyed most of it!

    I hope to see some more games like that in the future as this one presents a very interesting and unique ideas!

    A great example of how the infectious indie scene is facilitating a gaming revolution. So much more than forgettable, popcorn entertainment, it manages to be a deep and enriching without sacrificing fun. [Issue 0, January 2014]

    Type:Rider couldn't be a more unlikely game, really. It's a collision of visual and gameplay styles topped off with an incredibly narrow educational focus, and yet through ingenious design and polished gameplay it emerges as one of the best mobile titles of the year. You don't have to be a graphic design student to enjoy this one.

    Type:Rider succeeds not only in making the story of typography looking interesting, but also, even better, in using that unusual background in the best way, with inspired graphics and interesting pieces of information.
