Check out I Shot the Serif, a fantastic game that tests students on their knowledge of basic typography terms: serif and sans serif. In this fast-paced, point-and-shoot style game, students must correctly “shoot” all of the serif letters without shooting the sans serif letters.

There are three different levels of difficulty: junior, middle-weight, and senior. Players progress through phases where more and more letters appear, and must beat the clock to beat the game! This game would be perfect for classes instructing on typography or graphic design, and would be a fun way to introduce an otherwise dry concept.

Check out a screenshot of the game in action below, and follow the link to play for yourself:
