Ratings and Reviews
This is the one.
Every once in a while, a gamer comes along and writes a review about a game of the type that comes along once in a while.
I am one such reviewer, and Supertype is that type of game. The game is effortless in execution, while offering just enough challenge to distract players from “life” for a few minutes.
You don’t have to enter into deep concentration, and if you neglect to open the app for a week, you won’t forget where you where, or how to play. The game is as easy to out down as it is to pick up. If you have a busy lifestyle but are looking for some small distraction then you will appreciate Supertype.
Hardly a word game
I really liked the concept of this game: a word game mixed with a physics game, my two favorite genres of mobile game. But what I got was simply a physics game. A word game, typically, rewards you for knowing lots of words and what they mean. It at least encourages you to learn new ones. Any game where “llllllll” can be the answer is not a word game. It is a game that uses *letters* in a new and creative way, and props for that. But it could be so much more.
What I would do: with each puzzle, include a definition or some cross-word like word hint that leads to a word which will satisfy the physics puzzle. That way if you get stumped on the physics, you can focus on the word hint, or vice versa. I downloaded this game at midnight, played it for 20 minutes, and then deleted it the next morning, because the charm and novel concept had worn off. The game that I’m describing, I would play for hours, and the game you’ve got is not far off. I just think it’s borderline false advertising to market this as a “word game.”’
A good puzzle game
Some people are saying that Supertype needs to require the player to use actual words to solve puzzles, but I don’t think that’s a good idea. If you could only use real words, it would make the game into just another word game, as you wouldn’t need to worry about physics, just about the word itself. The whole game is based on physics. The letters could easily be replaced with shapes and the game would be the same, so making it into just a word game would not work. This is an awesome game for people who love puzzles. Definitely give this one a try.
