Customer Reviews

Beautiful but frustrating

This game is visually and aurally stunning. I love typography, so I was very excited to play it. The challenges are fun, varied and often surprising. The typographic history is detailed and interesting but not used as part of the game, which I found disappointing.

The biggest problem for me is the lack of consistency in the responsiveness to actions. Sometimes when I tip to the right or left it speeds and other times barely responds; sometimes when I press to "jump" it responds instantly but other times it goes nowhere. This meant that some challenges were just frustrating and the pleasure went out of the game - i knew what I needed to do to adjust my actions but I couldn't develop a sensitivity because of the inconsistent response.

Please fix this - I want to like this game.


What on earth people? This game is incredible, like a historical and slightly easier version of limbo. Graphics, music work in sync and add a nice touch overall. Deserves a better rating from my perspective.

Wow, a visual and educational stunner!

Being a graphic designer, this game instantly resonated with me! The descriptive historical elements only strengthen it's charm :)
There are some slight frustrations with control, but generally it has a nice bounce and flow to the physics.
I can only hope they will expand the game with even more brilliant levels!
