Week in Arcade: 'Splosion Man

splosionman

Only one game this week, the start of the overpriced Summer of Arcade. Thankfully though, the first game is not overpriced, but right on the mark, not to mention an amazing value.

‘Splosion Man

Twisted Pixel has an amazing sense of humor, and that it retained fully in ‘Splosion Man, possibly the best Arcade game of the year so far. ‘Splosion Man puts the player in control of a guy who has been exposed to radiation, giving him the ability to explode at will. The player can bounce off walls, break background objects, and fly with an amazing feeling of freedom. There are 50 single player levels, an additional 50 for multi-player co-op, and unlockable themes and pics. Brilliant.
