* EasyModeMockery: Take the "Coward's Way Out" just once and you get a bow 'round your midsection until you finish a level by yourself.

* EasyModeMockery: Take the "Coward's Way Out" just once and you get a bow 'round your midsection until you finish a level by yourself. In a more serious example, it prevents you from getting "You're The Best Around" (Complete the single player mode) and "A Little Help From Your Friends" (Complete the multiplayer mode) until you do complete the level in the time trial segments.

'''Splosion Man'' is a PlatformGame for the [[XBoxLiveArcade XBox Live Arcade]] service, created by TwistedPixel, makers of ''TheMaw''. This [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly-named]] title follows the adventures of the eponymous, [[CloudCuckooLander slightly]] [[AxCrazy deranged]], experimental subject as he escapes from a variety of dangerous laboratories. To navigate the [[DeathCourse many]] [[NintendoHard hazards]] that he faces, he is blessed with the power to spontaneously explode without harming himself. This ability functions as a jump, as well as a temporary shield from projectiles and a means of offense.
