With twelve huge levels, full keyboard and controller support, upgradable skills and a full set of achievements and collectables to discover, Explodemon captures the essence and nostalgic feel instantly recognisable from SNES-era platformers with the depth and variety of more recent indie platform titles.

I really like the concept of this game. A robot whose only weapon is the explosions he causes all the time? Yeah...that DOES work as a concept! :D
It ties in with the humor (the planet's leaders rather surrender to their enemies than use their last chance of beating them - by using you), and the Engrish quotes tend to grow on you.
The game itself plays well, is fun and flows quite reasonable (wallsliding could be implemented better, but it's doable).

My only real gripe is that it's terribly short. 12 levels in total isn't much to go by. Granted, they're all but small levels, and the design of them is pretty good, but still...I thought I was just about halfway at that point. :-\
But all in all...it's better to have a small game choked with quality than a large one that is kind of 'meh' to play through.

Explodemon is like the lovechild of Megaman X and Ms. Splosion man. I'm not TOO far in but so far this game is a masterpiece and well worth the 9$ price! Of course the same masterminds behind Stealth ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ made it so it's gotta be good!

If you want a game that truly feels like a platformer from the SNES era, go buy this now.

I was expecting some kind of Megaman, maybe because of that i was a bit disappointed when i played it.
But nevertheless it is a good game that made fun playing it. Some tricky Jump'n'Stuff parts, but really a game i would recommend ;)

a modern megaman asthetic, with a different unique gameplay style. you are a dangerous and partially broken robot who must explode every few seconds. you use the explosion ability to fight an evil invading robot/alien species, platform, and solve various puzzles. upgrades, obtained at the beginning of each level, make your explosions more effective in various ways. an interesting game that i would pick up if it was on sale.

At first glance and play, a very nice tribute to the platformers of days gone by. The controls are reponsive and feel good.

The story, presented in comic book fashion, is quite entertaining. You are a guardian, a hero, awakened (unintentionally) from stasis during a world invasion and are the worlds last and only hope.

But your powers are unstable and you tend to spontaneously explode if you are too idle or slow. You have a need for...exploding and it's better to put them to good use. The pace is constant and quick.
