and the xbox.com description

Features

Fools they were, to tread where knowledge should stay forbidden. For what emerged was not a man—it was Splosion Man™. "And all who saw him were 'sploded, for he was the fire and they were but meat." Able to 'splode himself at will, Splosion Man launches his way through levels, an uncontainable force. From Twisted Pixel Games, developer of the award-winning The Maw, comes a single- or co-op multiplayer experience that 'splodes like no other.




Single-player adventure: Play through 50 single-player levels split into three environmentally different chapters as Splosion Man escapes the underground Big Science Labs where he was created.
Multiplayer action: Jump into 50 multiplayer levels supporting up to four player co-op split into three different chapters.
Bonuses: Get free unlockable premium dashboard theme, gamerpics, and Avatar accessories.
Visual style: The personality and humor shine through in film-like cinematics and hundreds of in-game animations. Vivid and colorful graphics advance character animation and emotion.
Hours of fun: Splosion Man is a retail game's amount of content that can be downloaded from the comfort of your own living room.
Musical talent: The original music score is from award-winning composers Joshua R. Mosley (single-player levels) and John DeBorde (multiplayer levels).

Man. Are there any reasons NOT to get this game?

1) It's the cheapest of the Summer of Arcade games.

2) It seems the most original.

3) Fun achievements.

4) 1-4 players!

5) IGN's 9/10 review.

6) Turning fellow scientists into meat, and psychotically laughing in the process! And now...

7) Avatar unlockables!

This game is going to rock!

All of these posts actually convinced me to buy this game.

And with all those bonuses, it seems worth it.

9/10 by IGN. Sounds good enough.

Keep in mind no clothes for your Avatar can be unlocked till the Avatar Marketplace hits and even then Splosion Man needs a Title Update.

This game is awesome, the gameplay is simple yet fun, and it gets challenging, but not too much that you become frustrated.
I tried an online co-op game and it worked fine for the first 2 levels but then it became a laggy mess, but it's really good when it works fine.
Easily worth the 800 points, and plus you get all those nice unlockables, I hope the premium theme looks good.

Anyone want to hazard a guess at what the avatar unlockables will be...?

Personally I think either the tutu from when you skip a level or the splosion man costume from the credits. Maybe a scientists costume but that'd be unlikely.

BUT...

Most likely a t-shirt with the game logo on it

Either way its all cool.

p.s. 11 Aug is my wife's birthday, so I wont be getting the update until the 12th..I don't want any "you love that thing more than me" arguments on her birthday

The fireballs for avatars were for Band of Bugs if you get the demo and have a look - ninjabee announced this, a totally different company...

But anyway yeah, how about the ability for your avatar to splode or have them constantly lit of fire like splosion man - sounds farfetched but it'd be quite cool.

They kind of had to. Microsoft has rules for avatar clothing and accessories which being that you can't cover up an avatars face.

How do you get the unlockable? I've finished the game on Normal and Hardcore and found all the cakes. The only achievements I need are the multiplayer ones.

I got in the dashboard update yesterday but I have nothing under my awards.

According to one of the developers, the unlock isn't hard to get - just break some glass. It won't be available until the update goes live on the 11th though, unless they update the client prior to that.

Hopefully there will be something for hardcore because I just finished that.

Although "accessories" implies that there will be more than one.

Well, look at it like achievements. You can do something like get 1000 in Avatar but it doesn't compare to 1000 in CoD4. Some games will be easy, some will be tough.

thats cool the 2 shirts and to the people who want it to be harder to get. The avatar items are like gamer pics it's free marketing for the game. so the more people that are wearing it the more likely people will see it and ask about the game. And maybe buy it.

DarthSoth

Will the game actually update? I haven't played a lot of Arcade games so I have no idea if they do updates. I would think they do.

And, will it actually tell you that you have unlocked an avatar award in the game, like achievements with a pop up or something?

I am assuming that the splotion man avatar awards aren't available yet?

They have pics and what not on the 360 general board looks like the cool black T's are going to be a little tougher to get. complete all 50 multiplayer missions. The breaking glass ones are going to be everywhere though

Luna Saisho
08-23-2009, 06:31 PM
Don't worry, Darth, it will update for you. It's exactly the same type of thing as when a disc based title updates.

From what I understand, it should retroactively update... Meaning, when you go into the the game, it will see you've done what is needed, if you have, and will give you the unlockable. The word on the net is that you simply need to break some glass, and you get a t-shirt, but I don't know if that's for sure.

Exactly, microsoft wants ODST to be the first game to have the avatar awards, so they are holding back other studios. They want it to be ODST because halo is there baby. So why not give them first dibs. Does not surprise me really.

Twisted Pixel announced today details on their title update for 'Splosion Man, along with the information that the awardables patch won't be included, as it is up to Microsoft on when it will be released. The awardables will go along with the new Xbox Live update that will allow for Avatar accessories to be awarded for achieving certain things in the game.So TP is shrugging the responsibility to MS. But IF MS doesn't recieve the update from TP we'll all be assuming that its MS fault instead?

The Pants Party
09-01-2009, 09:00 PM
TP finished the update. All updates have to go through a Certification process on MS's end, which is something that often delays a patch from any developer. Sometimes the patches are rejected and have to be redone to meet some specification MS changed or didn't like. TP is a good company, they're not just blowing us smoke on this. They want the stuff out there as much as we do, I'm sure.

My thoughts exactly, Iv'e personally spoke with Frank Wilson CTO of Twisted Pixel, they're good people. I don't believe for a minute it's because of them, MS must be either having troubles or are holding it back for their own reasons.

Halo was Microsoft's baby, but Bungie isn't owned by them any more. They left Microsoft in the dust and became an independent developer again.

Halo is more of a trademark for xbox.

Anyways at this rate TP will be like: "NEW DLC! 400 microsoft points to unlock clothing in our game!"

That would be a bomb shell. It won't happen like that, they do need to hurry up though.. :(

There was an Xbox Live update... but NOTHING for 'Splosion Man. This is getting ridiculous. By the time the update comes out everyone will forget about the game. Stop dragging your feet Microsoft.

What the hell was the update for anyway?

Exactly, microsoft wants ODST to be the first game to have the avatar awards, so they are holding back other studios. They want it to be ODST because halo is there baby. So why not give them first dibs. Does not surprise me really.

Cough, Cough..

I don't see any Halo 3 ODST avatar unlockables, and I almost have every achievement. Only missing 5 of the 200k firefight achievements.

I am surprised as hell that ODST didnt have any awards, I have 100 in the game and nothing. I think its BS that they are delaying the awards for so damn long. This is so annoying, I want the shirts from splosion man so much. MS is not being awesome right now :(

I'd buy it now if you want to get it. Splosion Man is a great game. It's original, funny and actually provides a challenge in the later levels. They've also thrown in unlockable gamer pics and a premium theme! Don't shrug this game off just because one feature of it isn't available yet. The shirts will come eventually and not having them now won't detract from the gameplay at all.

And FYI, they've said the avatar awards are retroactive. Meaning if you've already performed the task required to unlock it you won't need to do it again!

You're only half-right. Yes, they are there (only for people using the Preview Update, I think), but you can't unlock them yet. Trust me, I tried.

Probably when the full update is released, we can finally start unlocking our avatar awards :D

That's odd.

When I go to the guide, and click Awards, it shows this:

Splosion Man
0 of 4 awards

I tried unlocking them, with no success.

More waiting...

And they are indeed retroactive. As soon as I started the game I got a nice 'Avatar Award Unlocked' pop-up. :drunk

How do you complete the game on multiplayer? does it mean just play last level on multiplayer or whole thing?

You have to complete the entire game in co-op, all levels.

Does that mean in one go? Or what?

Does that mean in one go? Or what?

There are 3 chapters with around 18 levels each. Each level of every chapter has to be completed in multiplayer co-op. Not in one go, just completed.

Okay thanks. I probbaly will have a go of doing the multiplayer once I finish the game on single player since I just bought it because I just got paid so just bought points to spend :).

Actually you don't have to complete the whole co-op campaign just the last level because I've already tested.If you don't believe me look at my achievements and I have all the rewards and before anyone asks the way I had the last level is I actually found someone on it a couple months ago.
