MEDIOCRE - Type:Rider is a fun, but unremarkable game that might be worth playing at least once for the history lessons. Those into typography and art should get a kick out of the simplistic premise. Everyone else can probably pass.

Type:Rider is far from a perfect game, maybe not even a good one, but it is a unique and interesting endeavor to give a little background on a subject I’d never have bothered to look into otherwise.

The only other complaint I have is that it's all over pretty quickly but for such an inexpensive game, I suppose that's to be expected.

The platforming is serviceable, but it doesn't really stand out. The side-scrolling perspective is a prop, used to give the journey more of a game-like feel. As an experience, it did the trick somewhat convincingly, but don't expect anything majorly engaging during your playthrough.

Type:Rider is an enjoyable 2D experience through the history and advent of typography. By combining the haunting and dreary visuals with captivating and clever stage designs, this is a game worth checking out. While not a long game, it can be quickly completed while still providing quite a challenge in terms of puzzle solving. If learning about typography doesn't sound immediately interesting, Type:Rider has surely made it an amusing way to learn and there are some memorable stages that make replaying it for the time trials fun.

Overall, Type:Rider is like playing through a work of art with good music, excellent visuals, and an interesting and unique concept, but not without some flaws. It's still a good deal at $2.99 and might be worth a look.

Not many games are based on the history of typeface but Type:Rider provides a fun and well designed puzzle-platformer experience around fonts. Original and informative, Type:Rider could use a more user-friendly format for its text sections but the experience is fun and well worthy of the effort and investment.

If you ever wanted to learn about your favorite fonts, Type:Rider gives you more information than you needed to know. While an uneven platformer that struggles with you from beginning to end, it's a serviceable romp for those that want a slightly relaxing game to play in these summer months.
