You can add text to your games in a few different ways. Many of the frameworks allow you to use a truetype font for your text but this comes at a cost. You lose a lot of flexibility with styling but most importantly you lose performance. No one likes a game that takes a long time to load or drops frames at that crucial point. Using bitmap fonts you can achieve the perfect style and gain a MASSIVE performance increase over alternative methods.
