To coin the phrase made popular by The Pointer Sisters, “I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it. I’m about to lose control and I think I like it.” Such emotion being brought out from me can only mean that Explodemon has a release date, and that date is February 8th in the US, and February 9th in the EU. This news of the date was also entwined with the just as exciting news that the game is due to be priced at the sweet price point of $9.99/EUR9.99/£7.99, which is just right. In case you’ve forgotten what Explodemon looks like (shame on you!), I’ve attached a trailer for the game, along with the necessary PR, which reveals that the game will feature 12 massive levels, and “well over 8 hours of gameplay”, which sounds like a wonderful value proposition to me!

Explodemon blasts off February 8th/9th
Adrenaline-charged platformer to retail at an awesomely-low $9.99 / EUR 9.99 / GBP 7.99
LONDON, ENGLAND – Hold on to your hairpieces, because retro-inspired action platforming
masterpiece Explodemon will be exploding onto the PlayStation store on February 8th (SCEA
territories) and February 9th (SCEE territories).

our fellow UK compatriots, £7.99.
Featuring 12 gigantic levels – each stuffed with secret rooms, puzzles and collectibles galore – and
well over eight hours of gameplay, Explodemon is a perfect post-Christmas treat without any of the
wallet-guilt. Which is, like, totally a thing that science says is real.

octane explosive action platformer for PlayStation 3, distributed exclusively through the PlayStation
Influenced by classic Japanese games from the golden era of the SNES, players use Explodemon’s
self-destructive nature to combat enemies and fly through the air, all the while solving a huge
variety of physics-based puzzles (and, naturally, causing incalculable collateral damage).
When the peaceful planet of Nibia is attacked by the malicious Vortex forces, the fate of the star
system is thrust into the one pair of hands it shouldn’t be: the malfunctioning Guardian robot
Explodemon. His comic quest to repel the onslaught and restore peace will take him across
three distinct planets over twelve levels, with new abilities and gameplay mechanics introduced
Explodemon is rated E by the ESRB, 7+ by PEGI (6+ in Portugal), 12 in Germany and G in Australia/
