It’s you versus 30 font samples in a battle of wits and willpower. Scale in, scour the details, analyze the names, and make your choice—but beware! The clock is ticking. There’s no time limit, but the faster your fingers and the sharper your senses, the higher your total score. Was the last round a walk in the park? Up the ante with a new level of difficulty.

The Font Game is the hallmark of aesthetics, gameplay, and total typographic awesomeness at the App Store.
The Font Game HD is the definitive font game for the iPad. Two new games exclusive to the iPad: the flip font game that reverses the classic version by offering four font samples to choose from, and the match game, which will push your cognitive and identifying skills to the absolute limit.
Just bought The Font Game iPhone app from @ilovetypography. Absolutely *love* it so far! Gorgeous UI, too.

Best iPhone game EVER!
Abrupt or adnate? Open counter or double dagger? This time around, terminology is the name of the game. Choose the right term for each visual definition; not for the faint of heart! You’ll be faced with everything from anatomy to serifs to some rather more obscure symbols. Do your homework and impress your fellow designers at your next critique.
It’s the perfect way to test or show off your type chops, or just learn.
Absolutely ace and highly recommended
The Font Game now utilizes Game Center to track high scores. Choose quickly and wisely to score more total points and prove your typographic prowess.
