Explosionade Review (XBLIG)

Explosionade, while causing a stir within the XBLIG developers community, is another release from Mommy’s Best Games.   See if I keep reviewing Mommy’s Best Games, or schmups, you are going to start things that I either A. work for Mommy’s Best Games (I don’t) and B. Play nothing but schmups.  Though, I am playing this XBLIG title until my xbox screams for me to stop, I might as well tell you why it’s worth the 80 Microsoft Points ($1).

All your friends are storming the Horronym Fortress but Colonel Bouche left you to guard the supply depot.  Disregarding orders to clean the toilets, you open the depot to find a gigantic, prototype mech!  You jump into the mech, and you head down into the sewers for a little fun shooting things, only to find the Horrornym right at your back door.
