Trebuchet? Really?

:
For $2 I expected a little more range of typefaces than what comes installed with Microsoft Office. And yes, I know more typefaces get unlocked as one progresses. I'm on level 16 ranked in the top 500 and just got "rewarded" with another awesome MS Office font, the venerable "Georgia". What a thrill.
Also, I defy anyone to honestly differentiate between the capital "I" from Helvetica Neue and Arial. Nor should they have to.
Speed the whole thing up, too. Is it taking so long to load each letter because of the statistics no one looks at? I know you worked hard on writing the code that collects that info, but players would rather move faster to get to the next letter instead. Save the stats for the website.
I REALLY want to be challenged more by this game as typography and fonts in general are something I enjoy immensely. I hope the developer can make this great IDEA for an app into a great app.

5/5 stars

Mostly Enjoyable

:
Love the app, but I'm still waiting to find out where I unlock Comic Sans MS. More Comic Sans MS would definitely make this the best app evar.
