  3. A bit of a snooze for me
    by Lisa in New Jersey, USA - Nov 15th 2015

    The point of this game is to explore different fonts by steering two dots through the shapes of the letters. As a previous review noted, it takes some coordiation to manage that. But I was left thinking, "What's the point?" I'm not interested in the history of typography. The name should have stopped me from buying it. If you like typography, go for it. Otherwise, stay away. If not, it's a big yawn.

  4. Very Enjoyable
    by SKYBLUEAZURE, Canada - Jan 20th 2015

    The concept of the game was incredibly interesting and I wasn't sure what exactly I was expecting when I first acquired the game. Many of the levels are beautifully crafted and visually pleasing.

    Many of the levels I found to be incredibly relaxing; good to sit down with a cuppa' on a lazy Sunday morning. Although many of the levels were fairly easy, although a few can be quite tricky. Overall I enjoyed this game and would recommend it to friends.

  5. Unusual but excellent
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - Dec 21st 2013

    A very unusual concept - a journey through the history of typography from the perspective of a coiple of dots - but the game is beautifully made, challenging, instructive and satisfying to play. I liked it a lot. Good for a few hours of play. Each level has slightly different kinds of challenges you need to beat.

    I am not very fond of games requiring speed or coordination/reflexes and not very good at them; I was able to get through most of this game although some challeneges were pretty tough for me. If you really don't like games involving reflexes, you may not enjoy this one as much.
