What is 'Splosion Man?

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/s/splosionmanxboxlivearcade/

Fools they were, to tread where knowledge should stay forbidden. For what emerged was not a man—it was Splosion Man™. "And all who saw him were 'sploded, for he was the fire and they were but meat." Able to 'splode himself at will, Splosion Man launches his way through levels, an uncontainable force. From Twisted Pixel Games, developer of the award-winning The Maw, comes a single- or co-op multiplayer experience that 'splodes like no other.

* Single-player adventure: Play through 50 single-player levels split into three environmentally different chapters as Splosion Man escapes the underground Big Science Labs where he was created.
* Multiplayer action: Jump into 50 multiplayer levels supporting up to four player co-op split into three different chapters.
* Bonuses: Get free unlockable premium dashboard theme, gamerpics, and Avatar accessories.
* Visual style: The personality and humor shine through in film-like cinematics and hundreds of in-game animations. Vivid and colorful graphics advance character animation and emotion.
* Hours of fun: Splosion Man is a retail game's amount of content that can be downloaded from the comfort of your own living room.
* Musical talent: The original music score is from award-winning composers Joshua R. Mosley (single-player levels) and John DeBorde (multiplayer levels).

This is probably the Summer Of Arcade game I'm looking forward to the most. Good old-fashioned platforming. The Maw was a nice, charming game with excellent presentation which became a bit annoying because of how slow you seemed to move. No problems with speed here so I hope the level design is good and inventive enough to span all those levels.

Some of the timed exploding barrel jumps get pretty insane. I got a little bit of a Super Magnetic Neo vibe.

Wait, are this game and the game featuring a sort of yellow and red Megaman lookalike one and the same? If so, wasn't this supposed to come out on WiiWare (and maybe PSN) too?

[EDIT] Wait, no, I remember, that's Explodemon.

is this anything like Cloning Clide? It kinda reminds me of it and i got bored with that game rather fast, although it was solid.

Why isn't anyone talking about this? We can unlock all these from within the game?
Looks like theyve gone all out with the extras packed in between the free premium theme, avatar accessories, gamerpics, soundtrack free to download from the site and real life prizes to the tops of the leaderboards. You must all buy Splosion Man. Every last one of you!!

I wasn't really interested in this game but I will buy this just because of how awesome these guys are. They give you free stuff by having you unlock it in the game. That alone gets them my support and a big thumbs up. Instead of having you pay for premium stuff they have you play for it. This is bought day 1 and I will push for some of the studios I deal with to do the samething.
