'Ms. Splosion Man' (XBLA) Launches Free Challenges, Free DLC

Ms. Splosion Man is a 2.5D action/platformer based around the simple concept of 'splosions and the ridiculousness that ensues, featuring up to co-op multiplayer, local and online, a story mode chock full of hilarious cinemas seamlessly integrated into gameplay and epic boss battles.

Embattled socialite Ms. Splosion Man has been roundly condemned by authorities for her destruction of property and abundant manslaughter charges, but nevertheless remains hugely popular in the hearts of the people.  They call her a free-spirit and the meat-bringer but Big Science insists she is a dangerous element getting special treatment only because of her abundant celebrity.

Boasting improvements to nearly every aspect of its gameplay, Ms. Splosion Man is a true successor to her illustrious forebearer.  

Players can look forward to a host of new gameplay mechanics, varying environments posing new unique challenges, totally revamped network support, epic boss battles, original music, and plenty of the humor and charm that people have come to expect from Twisted Pixel.  Tons of unlockables throughout the game give players a complete behind-the-scenes look at the game’s creation.  

Featuring 50 all new single player levels, a 50 level multiplayer campaign and a bunch of surprises to come.

As a special bonus for Ms. Splosion Man fans, Twisted Pixel unveils the first in a series of themed TMS challenges slated for the combustible heroine.  TMS, or Title Managed Storage, allows Twisted Pixel to publish free Challenges for the community that are automatically available to everyone who has purchased the game.  The Challenge shows up in the opening menus of the game, but only for the duration of the contest. Twisted Pixel has teamed up with Destructoid for the inaugural challenge, with many more Challenges planned in the months to come.

Everyone who participates in the Challenge gets ranked on the leaderboard, and has a chance to win a Twisted Pixel and Destructoid prize pack including a Ms. Splosion Man light-up statue and a special Mr. D-toid Bobble Head.  The prize pack also includes shirts and posters from both studios.  1st, 2nd, and 3rd places on the leaderboards will each win the full Prize Pack, and a random contestant will get a Twisted Pixel prize pack just for competing!  The competition runs until July 31st, so get to splodin’ and top out the leaderboard!

Twisted Pixel is also pleased to announce we will be launching a FREE DLC level for the original Splosion Man.  Play through the level that takes Splosion Man up to his initial capture. Unlike the TMS challenges that go away after a limited time, this level is yours to keep!  Look for it under the Splosion Man downloads.
