Explodemon Out Today On PSN, Not a Rip-Off of 'Splosion Man, We Swear

Sony’s answer to Twisted Pixel’s ‘Splosion Man is finally here. Called Explodemon and developed by Curve Studios, this one gets a pass from being straight-up plagiarism, as it was announced at about the same time as ‘Splosion Man. Additionally, while the gameplay looks a bit similar, there’s enough different about this game to appeal to everyone. Curve Studios has released a new trailer to prove how super-crazy-awesome their game is, and I have to hand it to them; it does look like arcade platform-y fun. Hit the jump for the trailer.

Explodemon will be on the PlayStation Network today for a very reasonable price of $9.99. We hope to get you a review of the game pretty soon.
