Typoman reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Did Not pass the game to the end, as the game is rather dull. Therefore, all further judgments are based on the prologue and the first chapter. I was attracted to the game by its unusual mechanics (in the screenshots), because I'm a passionate fan of the Games series Scribblenauts. When I get into the game I pleased the background and the way the words are woven into it, it is interesting enough to seek them out. However, then disappointment came. There is no such variety that was expected. It is Necessary not to invent words, but to collect them from the given letters to you (that is much more difficult for non-English speakers, but it is quite acceptable). And to collect only that, the only word which will help to pass further (though there is an Achivka with replay of a puzzle, for the first chapter and prologue I have not noticed such possibilities). All you get for composing other words is "new word". Not Even a counter or a beautiful animation. That is to collect the wrong words-it's like collecting all sorts of other games for Achivok. By the Way, there are also quotes to collect, but there are no problems with their collection. If you played in Rayman Legends, where finding some dudes for salvation was not obvious and had to climb the level in all corners, or Ori, where you also had to make an effort for the collectives, this is not the case. Here It is quite obvious to see a fork, where on the one hand there will be a quotation mark, and on the other side will pass the further way. The Problem is only that you can choose the wrong way first and return you already, with a high probability, can not. I Also felt problems with management. I Use the controller from the Xbox and it is very often felt that the control is unresponsive: whether the delay when clicked, or something like that. It's Hard to explain. There were no problems With other a platformer. + It is very difficult to jump on the lonely letters from which then it is necessary to jump on a ladder. All the puzzles were related to the necessary words. There are words that are not very complicated, but at first It can cause a stupor, unless you play Scrabble in English every day:) Bottom Line: + Beautiful graphics + Good idea + Gloomy atmosphere + Music-You need to know English at least not bad-Unresponsive management-Too uninteresting Achivka with the compilation of a large number of words-Quite straightforward platformer, which is not Has to study his world (Chcha background at first interesting to learn)-Judging by the passage, the game is quite short-the Puzzle is quite monotonous Better look first pass the prologue to see if you need this game. If you are interested in the mechanics with the impact on the world using words-play in Scribblenauts. If you are looking for a complex platformer-this is not the same. If here because of the atmosphere-Nuu, it is still possible. But then Limbo and Inside are on order better.
