Typoman is a running, jumping puzzle game where you use letters and words to solve puzzles and progress. You play as a character made of letters in a hostile land with evil creatures. As this unusual character, you make your way through the world solving puzzles and avoiding enemy monsters to complete each chapter.

You move and use the letters scattered through each chapter by pushing them or picking them to create a new word or platform to stand on. In the puzzles, you have to spell out words and rearrange them which activates moving platforms or opens gates so that the character can progress through the game.

Typoman encourages the player to think outside the box and to use the surroundings to their advantage.
