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.

Explodemon is, like the description says, a 16-bit side scrolling platformer. And it definitely pays homage to this genre of games.

You can see that this game takes elements from classics such as Mega Man X, while still having an unique gameplay in the form of explosions. And those are used in a pretty nice way for both gameplay and stage hazards. You can use explosions to jump higher, move faster, lift objects and of course, annihilate the Aliens that are attacking the planet you were created. On that note though, there isn't really much of an interesting story but it is comedical nonetheless. Explodemon can also be seen as a fun character, because he is a bit sadistic when it comes to exploding.

The graphics aren't outstanding but they fit the game well. The music is pretty forgettable unfortunately. Also, this game isn't very long. It only has 12 stages which can be completed in a short amount of time. Fortunately, the customization of your Explodemon makes up for it, which comes in the form op upgrades. There are also various collectables and achievements, also coming with rankings at the end of each stage which counts for a nice amount of replayability.

This game brings back nostalgia to my SNES days and does it in a great way. If you're a fan of 2d platformers or just want to try out something new, Explodemon might be just the game you're looking for. Also note: a controller is not necessary, but I would recommend using it anyways.
