Top 3 Free iPhone/iPad Games for The Type Nerd
SHOOT THE SERIF
The premise of the game is pretty easy…click on all of the letters that have serifs and avoid hitting any of the letters that don’t. As you progress, more and more letters start appearing in the window, and you are only allowed a certain number of errors before you lose. The game has three different levels, so it’s fun for everyone!
This is a memory card game, based on famous fonts and typographers. There are four levels, which greatly vary in difficulty. The Schoolar level shows you both the letter and the name of the font to memorize, the Junior level only gives you the letter, the Senior level gives you a letter which you have to match to the name of the font, and the Art Director level makes you match a letter to its font creator.
This game is all about your knowledge of famous fonts. Once the game begins, the word Fontagious will be written in a font that you should recognize, either from a movie, band, show, or a brand. Your job is to guess that movie, band, show or brand, while the time is running down. If you can’t guess right away, a clue will appear instead of the word Fontagious in that same font to help you guess, then another clue, and then if you still havent guessed or guessed incorrectly, it moves on to the next word. Highly addicting—enjoy!
