Equal parts puzzler and platformer, Typoman is a fresh addition to Nintendo’s "Nindie" program. The entire game is centered on one very unique gimmick: the ability to use words and letters to manipulate the environment. Charmingly enough, even the protagonist is made of letters that form the word "hero."
Thanks to this innovative gameplay mechanic, the puzzles in the game have never felt more original. For instance, say you're walking trough a corridor filled with toxic gas that will kill you after a few seconds of exposure. Well, just search for the available letters to spell the word “gasp” and you will be able to take a quick breath, effectively stopping you from dying. All of this, coupled with clever touches like bridges made from the word “solid” that will fall apart to spell the word “old” as you cross them, create a very memorable gameplay mechanic.
