Explodemon! is a 2.5D platform action game brought kicking and screaming into the HD era. Influenced by classic Japanese games from the golden era of the SNES, players use Explodemon’s self-destructive nature to combat enemies and fly through the air, all while solving a huge variety of physics-based puzzles (and, naturally, causing incalculable collateral damage).
When the peaceful planet of Nibia is attacked by the malicious Vortex forces, the fate of the star system is thrust into the one pair of hands it shouldn’t be: the malfunctioning Guardian Robot, Explodemon. His comic quest to repel the onslaught and restore peace will take him across three distinct planets over 12 levels, with new abilities and gameplay mechanics introduced throughout.
“We’re really excited to finally be able to reveal Explodemon! to the world,” explains design director Jonathan Biddle. “The game is chock full of gameplay nuggets carefully mined from the greatest titles ever to grace our joysticks. Whether you’re experiencing its intense combat, head-scratching puzzles, or classic platforming, you’ll find we’ve combined all of these elements into an addictive and elegantly balanced package.”
Explodemon! is unrelenting, hard-core brain-tickling action for those who grew up playing platformers, as well as those who’ll discover just how awesome they are an will be hitting the Network during Q4 of this year.
In a random personal tweet I lamented the fact that Explodemon! would only be appearing on the Playstation Network and not also on the Xbox LIVE Arcade. Not to get anybody’s hopes up, but Curve Studios intercepted my tweet and responded with the following: “D’awww. Who Knows? We aren’t ruling it out!”
