Twisted Pixel bringing Miss 'Splosion Man' to iOS

From Pocketgamer:

At the height of the scandal surrounding Capcom's unabashedly derivative, poorly made MaXplosion, downtrodden developer Twisted Pixel teased the possibility of releasing its own version of clever platformer 'Splosion Man for iPhone and iPod touch. Not only is the developer making good on that promise, but it's going one step further.

Miss 'Splosion Man, which is a bite-sized take on upcoming Xbox Live Arcade title Ms 'Splosion Man, will be a universal app available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

The game pulls a few levels from the Xbox Live title, obviously with reconfigured touch controls and interface. Exactly how the levels will be structured and just how much content the iOS version will offer is unclear.

It's an interesting idea - not just because Twisted Pixel will have an opportunity to one-up Capcom's effort - cropping a console downloadable game for release on iOS. We're starting to see interest from console developers in porting over Xbox Live and PlayStation Network games, which bodes well for the App Store games library in the coming months.

From the Rumor Mill...take it with a grain of salt.

You are not pretty enough to be that stupid.
