Splosion Man and why he is awesome.

'Splosion Man

Or, Mr. Splode-a-lot: How I learned to stop worrying and blow myself the fuck up.



This a game which is about a man with one power: To blow himself up (to 3 times in a row).

Let me start by saying that this game is lovable, it has enticing gameplay, Great Humour, Fitting music and explosions (Lots of them). Let me say that it can get very frustrating, so its not for the faint hearted, but you owe it to yourself to push through it. Not everyone likes challenge, so there is an option to skip the level if you die enough times.

The violence is hilarious, with scientists blowing up into cooked meat. There are 47 cakes (Not a portal reference) to collect. Co-op multi-player for up to 4 'Splosions at once!

Even the menu is fun, while moving up and down to select an option, each move plays a note which, when put together kind of plays the theme tune, its the little things which make it awesome.

Now I haven't completed it yet, but that won't stop me from telling everyone who likes platformers to buy it. It has glowing reviews and is a bit similar to Braid; made by an indie developer and bound for great things.

Buy it Now... DOES SUBLIMINAL MESSAGING WORK?
Whoops, I said the loud part quiet and the quiet part loud.

This is what XBLA was made for (I hope) and is clearly one of the best games it now has to offer. It most certainly is worth buying, it doesn't have an average score of 90 for nothing. So buy some MS cash to buy this game, you won't regret it (By reading this statement you are forbidden to sue me if it is to your disliking).

I'm quite hopeful that it will sell well and 'Splosion man will become a kind of mascot for XBLA.


Lovable

Have fun exploding!

You've seen me before?

Who Am I?
I once went to the cinema and watched a 3D movie. As I was walking out, a guy with his 3D glasses still on yelled, "Woah, everything is 3D!" I was one of the 10 people that put their glasses back on to check.

I was looking at my to-do list on my laptop. Near the bottom of the list, already crossed out, was written "time travel" I have no recollection of writing that.

Once, there were only two brownies left. I decided I should eat them both so that they wouldn't be lonely. I am completely satisfied with my decision.

That's who I am.
