About

A 2D platformer from an independent Spanish studio. As two points, the player will reveal mysteries and secrets in the history of printing and font development, learn the history of the origin of typography. The plot begins in prehistoric times when people's writing was petroglyphic and reaches our times when the world is captured by pixelated nostalgia. There are ten worlds in total, which are associated with specific periods in the history of typography development. Each level is backed by a ton of documents and historical references, which reveal the context even wider. The developers did not make the game too complicated - its task is enlightening, and it should reach to the broader audience. All riddles are built on physics of game objects. One of the main puzzles is the controls. It is unusual and sometimes difficult to master. The game was praised by critics as one of the most innovative, offering the original concept. Available on mobile devices, consoles from Sony and on PC.

Type:Rider reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Type: Rider Type: Rider takes the Player on a Journey of Signs, Fonts and ultimately people's Communication. The Game starts with a small Tutorial explaining the control and Environment in the Game. Anyone who has played the slightly melancholy game ' Limbo ' ' will once again enjoy a similar Look Here. The Controls are very simple, moving from left to right, jumping occasionally and mastering the Level. The Game offers ten Levels. Each Level deals with an Epoch of Typography and shows its Milestones. For Example, the Gothic Script, Garamond, Origins and some others are at stake. As you move from A to B in the Level, the Alphabet is considered to collect individual Letters. This also includes a hidden & sign, which is hidden in each Level as a Bonus. While one contests the Levels, in between there are some Information boards with an extensive Explanatory Text on the respective Epoch. The Levels, in addition to the beautifully arranged characters on which one moves, are decorated with beautiful Background Graphics and Paintings of the respective Theme. PRO CONTRA Very Varied Levels Partly Some spongy control Graphics and Sound matching the Epoch And are artistically valuable Very short Playing time The Bonus Level:D Too simple Game Mechanics video Games can be Art, provided the Development Team and Publisher allows it. With Type: Rider, the Developer has succeeded in creating a small Masterpiece. If you want a Blockbuster or a Story à la Hollywood, you should make a very big Bow around the Game. However, If you want to experience a great and true Story, you should take a closer look at Type: Rider. The Game shows you very nice and entertaining how it came to be that you, the Reader, can read this Review here.

Please if you read this comment, Please can this very cool game be updated for 64-bit devices (iOS 11.0)? It doesn't work anymore on my iPhone 6 because of the big update of iOS 11, I can't use some apps and or play them because they are 32-bit Apps!! Would be great if this app will be updated soon, Regards ~Bass

One of the most beautiful, exciting and exciting games I've ever seen. The settings are fantastic and always perfectly consistent with the development of the story. Then full of truly brilliant details. The developers really were phenomena. The music then makes me want to write to Apple and ask him to add an extra star to the reviews.

Beautiful game: instructive, graphic and very accurate music. Worth the money, more than just a game. Some levels are a bit more difficult but still feasible; the last level (the hidden one, about the Comic character, in my opinion, very difficult; several times I reached the end of the level, but I almost fell and had to start over, because there are no checkpoints)

A wonderful game! United worth knowing for the typo beginner with beautiful graphics, great music and one of the funniest things I can imagine! Unfortunately, the description texts in the game are terribly bad, which is important in a typical game. So for a star deduction. Since I find the game but so successful I forgive 6 stars. Since I deduct one, stay at 5;) Great job!

Congratulations for this particularly original and nice app but still weakened by a poor playability on iphone 4: slowness in the course of the game, lack of responsiveness of the keys regardless of the mode chosen. One often falls causes random reactions of the interpretation of the keys. On the contrary, on the contrary, it is played very well and when one presses for a jump, jump! Improvements for the next maj?

An incredibly good game that takes the player into the world of letters. The level design is cleverly thought out, the soundtrack fits, and besides, you also learn a lot if you want. Certainly not an app for non-educational Pups app users, but they are certainly not the target audience. The price is justified: good conversation may cost something. A movie costs 3 times as much, not even half as long and is probably not half as good.
