ORIGINAL IDEA / WELL IMPLEMENTED Though I'd have to be interested in typography in order to like this but in fact one can u appreciate fine artist level design & a concept unseen yet in android games then u will enjoy this. Basically its a platformer but instead of levels or ground u make ur way thru creatively designed levels & collect letter along the way. When u die u dont have far to begin from a checkpoint. Only downside is the price, its a little dear, especially for such an indie/risky game outing. Overall an enjoyable experience
This game has came along way. Now that it's buried within millions of games in the play store's app list, I'll say that it's more of an educational app than a real entertaining game. Since the whole point of this game seems to be learning about the progress human beings had made in printing technology.
The platforming seems bland at first, but they do keep introducing one-off mechanical set pieces as the game goes, which is nice. Don't be fooled by the glam: the history of typography isn't that interesting. The excerpts are substantial enough to make collecting collectables a little more exciting though, so that's nice.
A Game of History In my view, this isn't a game. It's a history lesson. And I'm the type of person who enjoys education. The actual gameplay is a bit repetitive, but the history of typography is what has me hooked. Learning how forms of writing have evolved over centuries has been fun for me. However, I know this type of game isn't enjoyable for everyone. Perhaps a free version containing only a few levels might be a good idea to try to get more players.
A Visual Game This is a game that is meant to be taken more as a piece or art. The game itself is entertaining, but only for about 15 minutes. After that, the motions just become repetitive. To sum it all up: Beautiful artwork, Less than average game.
Pros: Who would have thought that an educational game could be so fun! The surrealistic graphic is beautiful. The soundtrack is soothing and relaxing. Combine that with addictive gameplay, and you get this game. Cons: Some levels are a bit too difficult for casual gaming. And I'd like to see fonts and items that are mentioned in the unlocked books, and not just read about them. Overall, the pros outweigh the cons. And with the 50% sale, it's more than worth its price.
