Explodemon! dated for Q4 2010; new screenshots

Explodemon, if you don’t remember, was originally announced over a year ago back in April 2009 for PlayStation Network, PC, and WiiWare. It was scheduled for release in Q4 2009. Since that announcement, we haven’t heard a peep out of it.

Today, Curve Studios has finally brought the game back and has announced a Q4 2010 release date – for the PlayStation Network version, at least. The press release makes no mentions of the originally announced Wii and PC versions.

Explodemon! is a 2.5D platformer/action game influenced by classic Japanese SNES games. It’ll have players solving various physics-based puzzles, self-destructing enemies, and flying through the air.

“We’re really excited to finally be able to reveal Explodemon! to the world,” explains design director Jonathan Biddle, from a blast-proof bunker somewhere below the surface of Nibia. “The game is chock full of gameplay nuggets carefully mined from the greatest titles ever to grace our joysticks. Whether you’re experiencing its intense combat, head-scratching puzzles, or classic platforming, you’ll find we’ve combined all of these elements into an addictive and elegantly balanced package.”

Look out for Explodemon! on PlayStation Network later this year. Check out eight new screenshots at the gallery.
