This game deserves a lot more attention than it currently gets. The writing is hilarious, gameplay is great and very reminiscent of classic platformers (like the Mega Man X series) but maybe with a slightly more forgiving level of difficulty. Besides being an homage to such platformers it's a great game in it's own right. Good controls, interesting mechanics, good level design and can be played both as an action platformer and a puzzle platformer. If you're going for 100% there will be some puzzle solving, but any% doesn't require much in that department.

Additionally, it seems like an ideal game for speedrunning, but sadly no one seems to have picked it up.

This game is great! It's a mix of all great things from the past. It's funny it's Megaman it's Bomberman hell I'm wasting my time here! I'm going to play some more :)

At first sight it may seem like a watered down Megaman, but... No wait, it is actually a watered down Megaman... But I like it. If retro platformers are your thing, then this might be a good game for you. It has nice mechanics, graphics and music. The only irritating things are the constant conversations/tutorials and some earrapey sounds.

A neat, easily digestible, lighthearted game with a sense of humor. Perfect for lunchbreaks.

I really want to like this game because I enjoy the Megaman series, but this game falls short of that comparison. The biggest complaint is the soundtrack. The music gave me a pretty bad headache. I had to turn off the sounds in order to try and play the game.

The humor of the game is bittersweet. I actually thought some of the written conversations were funny, but you realize after a short while explodemon is a one trick pony and does the same type of nonsenical jokes. I like the humor, but it got annoying real quick.

The style of play is different than megaman because of the different game mechanics, range dps vs melee. The controls feel unresponsive as chaining combos seems more random than timing based. I tried beating this otherwise short game but I just didn't have the interest nor energy to complete this otherwise short game.

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.
