  • Summary: After giving us 'Splosion Man', developers Twisted Pixel began talking about "the game we've always wanted to make". Sounded like a sure thing to me. I was dead wrong. The pitch: a failing comic book super hero and his trusty side kick, rebuild their rep by blasting their way through a multitude of popular comic style worlds (manga, silver age, fantasy etc) cracking jokes and parodying comic book culture as they do it.

  • Summary: This game was a BLAST!! I think the comedy was great, which is lacking in a lot of games and the switch up of game play was a lot of fun. Some parts were hard, but what fun would a game be if it was too easy. Games used to require a lot more skill and focus to play. Comic Jumper brought me back to those days. Twisted Pixel is a company known for their great characters and story, Comic Jumper has both.

  • Summary: This game has some genius moments. I love the stats screen song. It's almost worth the price of the game alone. The cut scenes are generally great and the story is fun too. The only let down is the game play - there's not much too it and one you get the hang of the trick that seems to clear most levels it's not that hard either. It's a pity really as there's a lot of imagination and effort in places. Just not where it counts.

  • Summary: The game has a few good jokes, but the gameplay is just not fun for very long. The feedback on whether or not you are hitting things is terrible and the enemies don't really stand out from the backgrounds very well. I really enjoyed the first two Twisted Pixel games, but this one just falls short.

  • Summary: It seems they spent so much time trying to make a funny game that they forgot about the game bit. I wouldn't even mind - but it's not even that funny...

  • Summary: A very fun game, the main character and his sidekick are absolutely hilarious. It might be true than the game play is not the most innovative that you can find, but there's something fresh in that game, a lot of fun, good graphics, good soundtrack, A lot of references to comics and movie universe, for example, the vehicle used by Captain Smiley to travel from a comic to an other is the same as in Timecop...It liked very much and It worth its price.

  • Summary: Hilarious, original, fun, bloated with extra content, and has probably set a new bar for XBLA games. The game itself revolves around a world where comic book heroes are real and the comic book industry resembles that of Hollywood. Captain Smiley's comic has hit an all time low as quality plummets, so does it's readers. His sidekick, Star, doesn't help the situation by giving him a constant flow of a hard case. Not to worry!
