Curve Studios Explodemon! sure looks a hell of a lot like Mega Man—but with a gameplay twist. The 2.5D action platformer stars a robotic hero with a knack for blowing himself up. Intentionally.

Curve's SNES-era throwback title, coming to PlayStation Network, WiiWare and PCs, uses an interesting mechanic—lots of explosions—to fight enemies, reach new areas and interact with the world. The official description says it blends traditional action platforming with the "refined contemporary gameplay of Halo and Half-Life 2," something we're still a little confused about.

While Xbox Live Arcade isn't listed as a platform, site Gamerbytes believes that Curve may be working on such a release. Until that's confirmed, enjoy this sharp-looking trailer.
