Description

You are 'Splosion Man, the latest psychotic nuclear experiment from the irresponsible eggheads at Big Science. Having escaped his vault, players must guide 'Splosion Man through 50 single-player levels, and 3 bosses to escape the labyrinth of science.

Controls are very simple - players can only move and "'splode" up to three times; effectively triple-jumping their way through puzzles and away from dangerous hazards such as spike walls, rising levels of acid, and security robots in order to reach a safe room at the end of the stage. Timing is the greatest skill required, and players must hit increasingly tight windows of 'splosion jumps and exploding barrel launches, while finding ways to bypass the scientists' barriers and traps.

Along with the single-player campaign is the multiplayer campaign comprising of 50 additional levels which require increasingly skilled use of the ability to "splode" off one another for additional height and distance. Up to 4 players may participate within the multiplayer mode. Along the way, players can also collect hidden cakes in both single-player and multiplayer for various achievements.
