    If you want to play a beautiful, clever physics puzzler, and learn a little something about fonts along the way, then Type:Rider is for you. Period.

    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]

    Getting around has its frustrating moments, but Type:Rider remains a fascinating interactive exploration of typography that's unlike anything else on the App Store.

    If you’re looking for nonstop action, something tells me that you really have no interest in typography or simply platform puzzling. But, if you’re looking to slow down your gaming time and learn a bit about history, then you can’t do better than Type: Rider.

    But despite these minor annoyances, Type:Rider is still as elegant as anything in mobile gaming today, and the constantly changing canvas is always brimming with inspiration and captivating ways to think about words, and the letters that help to craft them in particular.

    Generous checkpoints alleviate some of the control issues, and the unique visual style is almost worth the price of admission on its own, but Type: Rider falls just short of its lofty vision.

    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.

    Type:Rider is a cool platformer which mixes nicely video gaming with knowledge.
    In the game you play as two dots, and you're going to run around with these two in a world which would teach you about the evolution of fonts and writing.

    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!
