From fun to frustrating
Type Rider is a side scrolling platforming Games where you play as a colon 2 dots not the other one The game starts out pretty okay, decently fun, learning the history of fonts.. hopping on letters and slowly this 2 hours game gets more and more challenging… I really enjoyed the first half.. it was pretty numbing.. simple and enjoyable enough…Type Rider
From fun to frustrating
Type Rider is a side scrolling platforming Games where you play as a colon
not the other one
The game starts out pretty okay, decently fun, learning the history of fonts..
hopping on letters
and slowly this 2 hours game gets more and more challenging…
I really enjoyed the first half..
it was pretty numbing..
simple and enjoyable enough…
a few puzzles thrown in there to get a white dot into a slot and move on…
But as the challenge increased..
the less fun the game got…
These dots aren’t exactly the most fluent characters in platforming game history..
one will weigh the other down…
you can balance with the triggers, but throughout my journey I never got the hangout it
I button mashed my way through the frustrating final level which by the way also feature a game braking bug
This game has a feature where if youre stuck you can press triangle to restart a section of a chapter…
Of course id bump this button way too many times on a table while frustratingly trying to balance these characters mid air only to lose my progress…
And one of these accidental redos set me a good ways back and when I got to the point I was at in the level, it was closed off and I couldn’t progress,
so I had to exit the level and retry this frustrating section again..
Most of the few final levels are frustrating as they make you deal with the balancing mechanic that the game never really prepares you for..
youre just suddenly forced to use it after you learned about it way back in the tutorial…
But frustrations aside.. none of the levels are really interesting or well design..
aside for some very few and tiny neat moments in the game..
The level design really just feels like a bunch of random levels all over the place and nothing more…
Type Rider is an okay time..
Nothing youll remember after you reach its credits..
I give Type Rider
a 5/10… Expand

Grab It MagazineFeb 10, 2014A 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]
Nov 19, 2013Type: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.
Oct 30, 2013Type: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.
