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.
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.
Fun,beautiful, educational Fun game with some challenge. I personally love the extra educational facet.
It's just okay Gameplay is beautiful and immersive, although sadly has nothing to do with teaching the history of typography. Also, the credibility of the type history section is undermined by a big typographic error in the first sentence, which put me off reading further for a long time. It seems to be written by a non-native English speaker and is a bit difficult to read. The hidden level is cute.
Great. Five stars when you learn how to turn the music off when the app is paused by the OS. I had the same problem when developing BB Rally so I can't complain :D
