    Typoman Revised is a brainy and well-designed platformer, offering few hours of clever fun and some degree of replayability. The Switch version is by far the better one, more polished and with some new ingredients that will please the players. Unfortunately, the touch screen is noo longer supported (but it was on the Wii U version).

    This game invites us to stop and reflect before acting, for which reason we will need to use our cunning to solve the different word-based puzzles that we will find. Despite aesthetically recalling other great games, it has its own personality that sets it apart from the rest, presenting a magnificent setting.

    Even after a few years of its original version, the idea of literally using the power of words to solve puzzles remains brilliant and very well executed in the game. The lack of length is the main fault of Typoman. Important to say that the game can only be properly appreciated by those who master the English language.

    No matter how hard Typoman tries, it’ll always be remembered as a Limbo clone. Puzzles are fun at first and visuals and audio design are good enough, but that doesn’t change the fact that Typoman has nothing new to offer.

    Typoman may not be for everyone, but for those who enjoy a platformer with a unique mechanic will find something here. It is an interesting look into the power of words, the harm negative ones can cause and the light positive ones bring.

    Typoman: Revised should have been a diversion dedicated to developing diction requiring proficient platforming prowess. Instead, it is a fleeting fancy, a lexicon of letdowns and saddeningly short. Ultimately, while Typoman: Revised has a solid system to base a game around, it ends up feeling like a missed opportunity thanks to its short length, clunky platforming moments, and unintuitive puzzles, but at least has some great achievements and an engaging antonym mini-game.

    Overall, Typoman had an intriguing premise and managed to tell a decent story with great atmosphere, good visual design, and interesting puzzle mechanics. In the end, however, the title doesn't on many of the gameplay mechanics, with good but inconsistent puzzles and often awkward and awful platforming. Coupled with its short runtime, Typoman isn't bad, but it's certainly a long way from being as good as the idea and visuals behind it.

The story can't be cared for, the platforming is bad, as well as non-existent, there is no skill needed, it all resides in the words that you make from the letters sitting around in the levels, but those word puzzles are boring, and hold no real merit, either they are incredibly confusing, too simple, don't make sense, or simply made up, and the parts that don't have to do with word puzzles, that make you participate in the platforming, well you may as well just give up, because it's one of the worst I've seen.
