First person to post after me gets a beta code.

#5 Posted by GunstarRed (5021 posts) -

I guess i'm first to post after you, but give it to the next one.

I got into it, it's totally more 'splosion man. It also has the best tutorial in a game ever "Meet Debbie... she's a stupid $%£!"

So much insane shit to talk about and theres only two levels. The online seems to be full of griefing and quitting.

#11 Posted by bibamatt (1086 posts) -

Yeah, got in! Can't download it yet as I'm at work. Looking forward to checking it out - hit me up on Live if you want to play (gamertag - Bibamatt)

#12 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

I got in too.  With a goal of 10,000 people, it seems like almost everyone should get in.  My sympathies to everyone who didn't.
#13 Edited by JacDG (2113 posts) -

I didn't get in :( Why didn't I get in.

#14 Edited by Aishan (1009 posts) -

Awesome, forgot about this. Got the beta code in my email. :D 
 
Edit: Woah. Nearly a 2GB d/l.

Hit me up: DreamKing88
 
Just played the first single player level. Can't wait for the full game. The first one was an instant classic in my eyes.

You're move UNREAL! 

#17 Posted by Jason_E_Sigler (122 posts) -

Hit up mdnytecartunr if you want to try out the multiplayer. Tried one match last night with three randoms, really forces you to work together. Look forward to trying it out with people who can do so!

#18 Posted by wafflestomp (247 posts) -

I got in. Gonna play it tonight.

I'm liking this more than the first game already.

That intro is fantastic. I love Twisted Pixel. 
 
This seems a lot more manic than the first was right out of the gate. Which is ideal, in my eyes.
#21 Posted by Mijati (881 posts) -

I'm also reminded I need to go back and get the achievement for finishing the game without dying in each level. I did the first two worlds I believe then stopped.

#22 Posted by SomethingClever (418 posts) -

I'm in, but I cannot connect to any games. I sit waiting while a current round is in progress and then when they are done it thinks for a moment and then tells me I've lost the connection to the other players. I tried a dozen times yesterday and another 6 today. I've now given up for a bit. Going to poke at it later to see if I can figure something out, otherwise I'll try to report my issue and that will be the end of my experience apparently.

#23 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -

Multiplayer level 2-5 is insane. Took 16 minutes to get through it, but it feels so good once you actually pull it off.

#24 Posted by fishmicmuffin (1041 posts) -

I got in but I will be unable to play until tomorrow night. How much is included in it?

#25 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -
@fishmicmuffin: 2 single player levels and 2 multiplayer levels.

im having the same issue
#27 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -
@buft: It might be a good idea to get a list together of gamertags in the OP so Bombers can find each other easier to play with.
#28 Posted by buft (3301 posts) -
@Aishan: i added the few that where listed, i'll monitor if any more come by and add them as neccesary
#29 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -

Add me to the list too, if you want. GT is also Aishan

Thanks! Hopefully they aren't extremely trivial levels.

#31 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -
@fishmicmuffin: It's been a while since I played the original, but these seem to be a bit longer. Or, at least, about the length of the ones in the later portions of 'Splosion Man. The two single player ones seem to be the first two actual levels (1-1 and 1-2), whereas the multiplayer has two further in (1-5 and 2-5). The second of the multiplayer ones is definitely not trivial.
 
Bodes well for the full game if the first two levels are fairly decent lengths.
#32 Posted by phish09 (1109 posts) -

I'm in.  I forgot to try it out last night, but I'll get on it today for sure.  GT:  Goldenroad

There are supposed to be 2 new levels each week.  I think it's just 2 new multiplayer levels though.  This isn't beta is really just for multiplayer.   
 
The SP levels are pretty easy, but then the early levels were in 'SM too.  I'd say the key change was there is a boss fight that is easy.  Fun, but easy.  And multistage, so hopefully later impossibly hard boss fights won't reset you to step 1 when you die.

Got in, looking for a co-op partner.

GT BD Mr Bubbles

Single player is good MP is full of griefers.

#40 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -
@BD_Mr_Bubbles: Really? I've never seen anyone actively griefing. I've seen people being idiots, but not as far as I've seen wilfully malicious. 
 
Although, I keep seeing people playing levels that aren't available in the beta -- just now, someone was playing Multi 2-12. What's going on with that? People glitching it out to get access to the full thing?

I finally got around to playing through the single player portion of the beta, and I'm digging it just as much as the previous 'splosion based game.

I really like that Ms. Splosion Man spouts off lines from pop songs instead of lines from action movies. Also, I've got to say, the Beard Engine intro is probably my favorite part of the whole thing.

For those of you not in the beta, someone posted it up on Youtube:

@Chaser324: I only just noticed, I missed it myself when I found them, but when Ms. Splosion Man finds the shoes (the cake equivalent), she actually wears them for the rest of the level. That's a neat little touch.
#45 Posted by buft (3301 posts) -
@Aishan: yeh thats pretty awesome, i hope its a different pair of shoes each level.
#46 Posted by Kyle (2323 posts) -

I got in. Gamertag is L9 Letters Long

I love the "your move, Unreal" Beard intro. I went to the Twisted Pixel panel at PAX East and they showed us that video because they thought it wouldn't be able to be in the game so the panel would have to be the only time people got to see it. Looks like they got to use it after all! Unless the final version of the game removes it, which would really suck.

First one I got in the dude just kept jumping in place, second one just kept walking off edges.

#48 Edited by Aishan (1009 posts) -

Head's up: 2 new multiplayer levels now available in the beta, 1-14 and 2-12. 
 
Edit: Can barely ever find other people to play with though; anyone in the beta feel free to hit me up. 
 
Edit again: These levels are awesome! There's some really fun new mechanics and traps involved, really nice to see if you were worried that Ms. might be a bit re-hashy.
 
@buft
: You'll also be glad to know that the shoes are most definitely different in each level. Multi 1-14 has a pair of spurred boots as the pickup!

#49 Posted by Aishan (1009 posts) -

Not sure if anyone's still reading this, but the multiplayer levels 1-15 and 3-1 are now available to beta players.
