First Ms. Splosion Man gameplay video takes sploding to new heights

Splosion Man is one of the best XBLA exclusives ever made, thanks to a winning mix of fun, old school platforming and genuine laughs (who could forget the song Donuts, Go Nuts?). The indie developer Twisted Pixel went on to make Comic Jumper and are currently working on the Kinect-exclusive Gunstringer, but they still found time to work on its first sequel, Ms Splosion Man. And as this debut footage of the game in action shows, it’s more than just Splosion Man wearing a pink bow.

The video shows the stages looking a more open than in the first game, and the speed looks even more manic than before. However, the same style of Rube Goldberg-esque platforming puzzles returns, plus there’s at least one giant boss fight and even a new song in the style of Donuts, which we’re totally fine with.  We can’t wait for the gender-switched sequel to hit Xbox Live this fall. In the meantime, enjoy some new screens.

    'Who left the toilet seat up?', 'Do I look fat in this?' - Oh, because she's a girl. Clever. Gameplay looks different enough to be fun though and the backgrounds are much better.

    The gameplay looks awesome, but I can see her quips become grating very fast

    something really cool that i noticed was the fact that she speaks. Whcih works better than I imagined it would.

    lol ^ first thing that came to my mind with the game title, 'she' may be hiding something games need more male pseudohermaphroditism or do they :/

    She skips! She slides from bars with her 'splosive powers! She's MS. SPLOSION MAN! SHE APPARENTELY HAS CHRONOSOMES IN THE XXXY format!
