Type: Rider is a work of art; most of the levels are absolutely gorgeous, with not merely letters but also typewriters, printing presses, telegraphs, and so forth assembled into a very pleasing audio and visual experience. It also serves its function as a brilliant tour of typography, complete with unlockable segments that explain some actually very interesting historical events.
However, the question Steam is asking me down there is "Do you recommend this GAME?" And I can't in honesty say yes, because the game is absolutely TERRIBLE. It's cute having a colon/umlaut/pair of testicles as the player character, until you start experiencing the jump physics that affect a pair of spheres. Most of my deaths in this game (and there were a LOT of deaths) came not from making a bad decision or timing something incorrectly but simply from that second @#$@ sphere behaving unpredictably. You have to be pixel-accurate in many places, with BOTH spheres, not because of small platforms but because landing at an even slightly incorrect angle will cause your second sphere to drag you down to doom.
Also, the levels become less pretty and interesting as you go along. The last real level is out-and-out *hideous*. (The secret bonus level, which you will find almost instantly, is even worse, but it's intended to be.)
