Twisted Pixel continues to impress us with their dedication to giving their players as much as they can. In the past (and future, no doubt) this has translated into free premium themes, avatar props, and bonus levels. Now you are going to get a chance to help them test the upcoming title, Ms. ‘Splosion Man! I was able to try this game out at PAX East, and I can tell you that, if you liked ‘Splosion Man, then this is the more of what you like plus an extra helping of humor and a bunch of new gameplay elements. The full release is below. Act fast!
