Twisted Pixel has announced that Ms. Splosion Man is coming to additional platforms with a little help from developer friends Iron Galaxy, Fire Hose Games, and Panic Button. On PC (Games for Windows Live and Steam), you can expect to find 50 single-player and 50 co-op (local and online) levels, ghost replays, and more. As for iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone 7, the game will have "familiar content but all new features, objectives, and gameplay modes."

"This will be our first mobile game, and only our second Steam game," says Twisted Pixel co-founder Michael Wilford. "But it's very important to us that we have great content on these high-end platforms, so these new versions are being painstakingly crafted to be as awesome as possible. We're planning a lot of post-launch updates and support to make sure we get it right."

I'm reasonably sure that half of the reason these ports are happening is so that Twisted Pixel can continue to play dress up and call it "work." We need to get in on this scheme.

Ms. Splosion Man is one of my favorite platformers to date. Like the original, it's charming, engaging challenging, and really put Twisted Pixel on the map for me. The mobile version translates most of the magic of the original to iOS in favor of serviceable touch controls, and a smoother graphical output. But it also shows the darker side of mobile gaming quite well.

Twisted Pixel's Ms. Splosion Man is like 'Splosion Man, but with more pink -- and the lead character wears a bow in her hair. Wait, she doesn't have hair... how does that bow stay in? Why doesn't it just burn up? This game makes no sense. Score: 2 out of 10 -- Lacks realism; too pink; every button does, like, basically the same thingJust kidding. The game's pretty awesome. No duh, right?
