Like fellow French duo Daft Punk, the Creative Brothers pool their collective brainpower to create stuff for people to play. Rather than an album of disco plunderphonics, though, the developer double-act has released a fun new app called Font Mystery. The game has just received its worldwide release on the App Store and Google Play, and is free to play.
Font Mystery challenges players with recognisable fonts from the spectrum of pop culture, so fans of Logo Quiz will find themselves in familiar territory. There are different categories to choose from, including films, video games, books and TV programmes. You’re presented with a sentence in black-and-white text, and have to use the letters available onscreen to write the answer. The phrases themselves offer a hint – for example, ‘hilarious green disguise’ in familiar wonky typeface for The Mask, or ‘a movie with dinosaurs’ in that iconic tribal font for Jurassic Park. There are additional hints available if you get stuck, and additional difficulty settings if you’re a pop culture buff looking for more of a challenge.
Font Mystery boasts 150 fonts and 200 levels to complete, with various achievements and themes to unlock. Although it’s single player, it’s also the perfect game for casual get togethers, letting you test your friends and family on their knowledge, or getting them to help you out when you’re stuck.
