The only thing I remember about Splosion Man is that if you choose the easy difficulty, the game makes Splosion man wear a tutu/skirt. It might have come as a late revelation to go from a year later "you know, he's already wearing a skirt..." My point is she's pink, wears a bow, why not just give her high heels and a skirt!
Twisted Pixel Announces Ms. Splosion Man
LOL at "Spolsion Woman" ... Good grief, people. You like video games enough to have an account on a site like GB and yet you've never heard of Ms. Pac-Man?? Are you effing kidding me?!?
Great to see a new game is coming. I expect it will be pretty much like SM but with a handful of new mechanics, enemies and backgrounds. And of course, even more of TP's trademark weird humor. I love the way indie developers like TP and Team Meat do off-the-wall marketing like this.
Wow, people are getting angry for others not liking the name, simply because of Ms. Pac-Man? Hate to break it to you, but Ms. Pac-Man is a terrible name for a video game. ;) Namco didn't even make Ms. Pac-Man, Midway did behind their backs. It's only part of the Pac-Legacy because it was a fun game, but the name was terrible (though Namco still doesn't like mentioning it in their archives.)
Kudos to the Twisted Pixel guys for a nod to the past, but it's still a bad naming strategy (and would be much funnier if they made up a developer name and treated this like an unauthorized sequel, then I'd be behind the name 100%.)
There is something to be said for the classics, but this time you get to blow cocky scientists to meaty chunks, with a bow, liked it before will probably like this one too, hopefully there is more to it then just a clone game of the first one but we will have to wait and see.
