    Type:Rider in really an unique game. Is a game that manages to mix wisely entertainment and culture, reinventing at the same time a formula like platform with few but valid variants.

    This is one of the most unique and interesting games I have ever played. 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 should buy because I believe almost everyone can find something to like about it. Expand

    Type: Rider provides a very well presented history of typography. The atmosphere and level design wonderfully compliment the information provided. However, at times imprecise platforming only serves to frustrate and lessen the experience. The occasional imprecision does not make the game unplayable, it only made me wish the controls matched the polish of the audio and visual design. I would recommend this game to anyone with even a passing interest in typography. Expand

    I don't play many platformers, so I normally wouldn't try a game like this, but the art and presentation looked interesting to me so I tried it. Overall I found it very playable for someone like myself who's not used to platformers. It had a few frustrating moments, but not many. You play as a a colon (2 dots), and you traverse levels made up of different themes and fonts inspired by the era they became popularized. One of my favorites was the western themed level with one of the western fonts, but the there are other good levels also and they're generally interesting to play through. The colon shape is interesting for the game mechanics as it allows you to grab corners and spin as you play. I think this game might appeal more to a gamer who's not really into platformers like myself. If you're experienced at platformers the game might not present much challenge. I play slowly, and got about 4 hours of play finishing everything except the secret level which is quite a bit harder than the rest of the game. Overall, I had fun with with the game, and enjoyed the artwork, music and concept. Probably won't play again though. If it sounds interesting, give it a try. Expand
