While you may not believe it – tucked in your duvets, embracing your 12-fin oil heaters or sipping on warm, cocoa-flavoured milky drinks – Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade kicks off with Twisted Pixel’s *groan* explosive follow-up to their underappreciated gem, The Maw. That’s right – The first game this â€œSummerâ€ is â€˜Splosion Man, 4-player co-op action puzzle platformer featuring plenty of – yeah, you guessed it – splosions.
Critic reaction to the game has thus far been superlative, with Destructoid saying in their review that â€œ’Splosion Man is without doubt one of the most polished, original, and enjoyable games on Xbox LIVE, a great way for Microsoft to kick off its â€œSummer of Arcade.â€ If you enjoy stern, sometimes unforgiving platforming challenges, you simply shouldn’t miss it.â€
Xbox live’s Summer of arcade 2009 has started off with a bang – and with a current Metacritc rating of 90% – It seems that â€˜Spolsion Man really is a blast.
‘Splosion Man is available from tomorrow for 800 MS Space Bucks.
