Cartoon Fonts for casual iPhone game

gamesphone's picture

Hello. I am trying to find some appropriate fonts for a casual iphone game to be used in the HUD (score and other interface elements) and the the main menu. It should have a cartoony look.

Books and articles about typography usually don't mention nothing about cartoon typography. What is considered good taste in this kind of style?

It is difficult to identify what current games are using because the fonts usually have a type treatment. For example, what is the font used in these examples?

I can’t help with the samples (but some of them surely are custom logos, not fonts).
But for cartoonish typefaces, my first stops would be these:

Thanks.

Yes, I had realized that some of them are custom logos, but even so they usually are based on a font, and have only some parts modified.
