Typoman: Revised is definitely a step up from the original iteration. It has more of its own style, and the gameplay mechanics rarely feel clunky. Though it hints at a meaningful narrative, ultimately it isn’t very substantial.
Typoman: Revised creates a unique and clever experience that ends just in time to salvage a positive experience. The game may not be perfect, like Limbo, but it still looks and plays great, has a message that resonates, and is a genuine surprise in its own right.
The platforming can be a bit touchy, but for the most part you’ll be stuck on puzzles and not jumping sections aside from a few key moments.
The platforming simply feels good, and the usage of letters, words and antonyms add another layer to it. The beautiful, dark environments beg to be explored, and despite its playthrough-heavy completion requirements, the game is a joy to play through every time to obtain all of the gamerscore available.
Some titles have the fortune of making their mark with a refreshing concept in spite of multiple problems, and Typoman: Revised is one such example. Its puzzles can be aimless and time-consuming. A lack of length and platforming quibbles are notable issues to point out, too, but its equally clever concept and atmosphere are worth a read despite some obvious misspellings along the way.
Typoman: Revised is an interesting title. It is humble but with some other technical problem. However it has an artistic design that integrates the scenarios in a great way.

Typoman: Revised is a smart puzzle platformer that takes one fantastic central mechanic and delivers some amazing puzzles with it. I just wish it brought a few more.
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.
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.
Every moments in Typoman feels like Limbo. From the graphics to story and atmosphere all like the pieces from Limbo. The only thing that makes Typeman a different game is gameplay. In the first chapter of the game, gameplay feels pure and new, but in the last chapter it's just boring, and puzzles don't make any sense.
