All Articles: Ms. Splosion Man
The “Twisted Pixel Games Bundle” (Comic Jumper, Splosion Man, Ms. Splosion Man, and The Maw) was added to the Xbox Live Arcade on April 12 for the low, low price of 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Purchasing all four games separately would run you $45, so it’s a fantastic deal for anyone interested in Twisted Pixel’s oeuvre. If you still haven’t picked it up, today is the last day you can get it at the discounted price.
Tomorrow, May 11, the bundle jumps to 2400 Microsoft Points ($30). That’s still a 33% discount compared to buying the games piecemeal, but its not the super, mega, awesome deal that 800 Microsoft Points is. Sadly, if you already own one or more of the games in the bundle, the purchase price won’t be adjusted accordingly.
Twisted Pixel’s next game, LocoCycle, is expected to be released for the Xbox Live Arcade this Summer.
Microsoft is getting into the Xbox Live Arcade bundle business and added the Twisted Pixel Games Bundle to their download service today.
The Twisted Pixel Games Bundle includes all four of the developer’s previously released XBLA games: The Maw, Splosion Man, Ms. Splosion Man, and Comic Jumper. Best of all, it’s available for the low, low price of 800 Microsoft Points ($10). If purchased separately, you’d need $45 to buy all four games. So the Bundle is a pretty great deal.
We reviewed Ms. Splosion Man when it was released back in 2011, so be sure to check it out if you’re interested in the bundle. Twisted Pixel’s next XBLA game, LocoCycle, will be released sometime this year.
Though I have a soft spot for The Maw, Twisted Pixel rose to fame with 2009’s Splosion Man. Splosion Man is an… unusual platformer that merged a simple gameplay concept (blowing yourself up, over and over) with intense challenges (navigating brutal stretches that are almost rhythm-based in design). Two years later, the Splosion Man franchise returns with Ms. Splosion Man – a game that builds up the original game in some very good ways. In fact, it’s easily stated that MSM is even crazier than the first game, in almost every way. With lengthy single and multiplayer options and tons of unlockables, Ms. Splosion Man also ranks as one of the deepest games on Xbox Live Arcade, making it a great buy for 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Just keep in mind that the game demands much from everyone… from start to finish. (more…)
In the final week before Summer of Arcade, Microsoft comes through with another trio of interesting Xbox Live Arcade releases.
This week, the XBLA will see the return of Twisted Pixel Games and their gender-swapping sequel, Ms. Splosion Man. Don’t let the yellow bow fool you, Ms. Splosion Man is just as explosive as her predecessor and she’s packin’ a new multiplayer mode as well.
Also available is Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, a third person shooter that ties in with THQ’s disc-based Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, which is scheduled for release later this Summer.
Finally, there’s Boulder Dash-XL, an XBLA update to the classic puzzler.
More information on all three games (which have been priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) each) is available after the break. (more…)
Ms. Splosion Man blasts onto XBLA on July 13
The funniest guys making video games today, Twisted Pixel, has announced that Ms. Splosion Man will be available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade on July 13. More than a mere sequel to 2009’s Splosion Man, Twisted Pixel promises a ton of enhancements to their already explosive game:
Boasting improvements to nearly every aspect of its gameplay, Ms. Splosion Man is a true successor to her illustrious forebearer. Players can look forward to a host of new gameplay mechanics, varying environments posing new unique challenges, totally revamped network support, epic boss battles, original music, and plenty of the humor and charm that people have come to expect from Twisted Pixel. Tons of unlockables throughout the game give players a complete behind-the-scenes look at the game’s creation.
In case that weren’t enough, the developer also promises players will have access to 50 single-player levels, 50 multiplayer levels and “a bunch of surprises to come.”
