Top Critic Average
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A good puzzle game can make you feel accomplished when you’ve solved a problem using your intuition, but with Typoman: Revised I often felt that I was just blindly throwing answers at a wall until one stuck
Typoman: Revised is pretty close to greatness. A genuinely original idea, a breathing world, and a good flow get caught up by awkward movement and the occasional feeling of being detached. Still, pretty close to greatness is something to brag about. Make no mistake, Typoman: Revised is something the development team should definitely be bragging about.
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.
