Twisted Pixel Games has rolled out a new title update that finally enables avatar awards, as well as contains fixes for the online multiplayer issues that some players were having. 

CEO Michael Wilford said “we’re excited because this is the biggest update to an existing game, with a lot of chances for players to score some free new stuff.”

Avatar Awards

Now that the Xbox Dashboard fully supports awarding players with avatar accessories from within a game, a title update has been released early this morning to enable Splosion Man’s awardable functionality, making it the first game to provide this feature to players free of charge.  Players who have already performed the achievement will be awarded their accessories at the main menu, while new players will get to see a preview of what their avatar looks like wearing the accessory.  Players can win two male and two female accessories for free by playing through Splosion Man.

Omaha Sweepsteaks

Ever wonder how those filets that come bursting out of Splosion Man scientists taste?  Now you can find out!  Twisted Pixel and Omaha Steaks have teamed up in order to deliver hundreds of top-quality steak filets to players.  Register by downloading the special Splosion Man gamerpic on the Dashboard or on Xbox.com, and then receive one entry each time (up to 5 times) Splosion Man is played in an online multiplayer session before November 22nd.

Online Multiplayer Fixes

Since the game’s launch, some players have encountered laggy online game sessions in certain network scenarios, including connections that frequently drop data packets.  In this morning’s title update, those issues have been fixed so that all players can experience lag-free online multiplayer the way it was intended.

Big Science denies the allegations, saying they would never endanger mankind with reckless experimentation. When questioned about the smoldering ruins piled up where their vast laboratory was headquartered and the succulent smell of barbeque on the wind, they point to their technology. “Even if something tried to escape our labs, which he didn’t, how could he overcome the power of Science?”

With over 50 single-player levels in their labs, Big Science does seem well equipped to handle any threat. Security machinery and traps fill each floor, and, curiously, ultra powerful “bosses” are spaced at intervals amongst the vast complex. The scientists are also prepared with a set of 50 unique multiplayer co-op levels should multiple Splosion Men emerge and begin working in concert.
