Bad Controls Make Game Difficult To Play

Now, I played this game on the WiiU back when it first came out, and although my own incompetence made it hard for me to complete the game, I was eventually able to complete it. When I saw this on the App Store, I was excited and looking forward to playing the fun game I had enjoyed on the WiiU. Instead, the controls make it hard to do anything, and have left me stuck on what should be a relatively simple puzzle (if slightly hard to execute). First of al, the directional “joy stick” only goes in four directions, which is severely limiting compared to the 360° of control I had on the WiiU. But I could live with that. What I can’t live with is the fact that you can’t do more than jump while moving, an essential part of some of the platforming sections, which require you to be able to jump and throw letters mid-air. That, combined with the difficult to aim throwing (and the start distance that the letters are thrown), makes it very difficult to complete certain sections of the game, and has left me stuck on a section that I would normally be able to solve in just a few tries.

Love it!

This is game is great! The story is creative and well told. The art music and sound makes it super immersive. The controls are a little off since you have to stop moving in order to pick up a letter and such but once you get the hang of it it gets fun and the things you can do are pretty much anything. The bad side of it all..I don’t mind the commercials I get you guys need the monetary support from somewhere but sometimes the commercial won’t load and you have a few options like retry abort and “x” but then you’re left with the game retrying to load the commercial and you’re stuck in an infinite loop and all you can do is close the game and relaunch in order to proceed..great game though. Definitely worth downloading! I hope typoman 2 comes out soon!

Needs some Improvements

I played through the whole game, the story is good and all that, but getting straight to the point. When the character(or Me ) dies first try on the level; it straight up puts a message: “Typo man needs a break!” I am overall frustrated about that because it’s like you have one life before the death screen pops up, I would recommend to put some type of life counter to tell you how much life’s you have left until you have to watch an ad(or not if you have premium), but I had to hands down quickly click on the menu button and click the retry button like about three milliseconds before I had to go through labor of the ads. So please implement this into the game. I would like it a lot
