Too few lvls Visually stunning but this has way too few lvls, esp for a paid app. Personally I prefer badland

Really impressive! Great graphics and music, some education designed as a platformer. A couple levels are frustrating but ultimately doable. Just make sure you play until the VERY end. :) great way to spend 3-4 hours.

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.

Nearly Unplayable Level Ruins Game Plays great except for the "Cinema Sign" level, which is nothing but frustration. This ridiculously difficult level ruins the entire experience. Between the problems of this game not working on many popular systems and difficulty issues, I can't recommend buying it.
