After falling in love with The Maw and ‘Splosion Man, I’m pretty much open to whatever Twisted Pixel Games is currently slaving away at. These days, that’d be Comic Jumper: The Adventures of Captain Smiley. In an effort to get into our brains before the carnage of E3 begins, a number of announcements have been made.
Comic Jumper, in case you hadn’t heard, is presented in a few various styles that mimic real-life comics. The third and fourth styles — the Silver Age of comics (“The Improbable Paper Pals”) and manga (“Cutie Cutie Kid Cupids”) — have been revealed.
The former can be seen here, and above in video form; we’ll hear more on the latter during E3 proper. To get a good idea of how Comic Jumper plays — and how the hilarious cut scenes play out — seriously, check out the video.
Lastly, and this is really cool (to me, at least), you can earn one single- and one multiplayer level for ‘Splosion Man through Comic Jumper. This add-on content comes in addition to other freebies: Gamerpics, Avatar accessories, and a premium Xbox 360 theme.
