Twisted Pixel Announces Ms. Splosion Man

#101 Posted by Parabole (216 posts) -

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!

Not to hate on Twisted Pixel, but 'Splosion Man has been the only game of theirs that I have enjoyed, so I'm glad their going back for a sequel.  Improve and/or remove the boss sections and I'm all in.

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.

Just bought Splosion Man for $2 on sale. I'm very intrigued to see what Twisted Pixel has up their sleeve for this. Comic Jumper was good, hilarious in spots, but the gameplay was weak.

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.
