Ms. Splosion Man for Xbox LIVE finally becomes available for Windows Phone 8
Back in April 2013, Ms.Splosion Man arrived for Windows Phone users with Xbox LIVE support. The game is based on of the famous – and hilarious – XBLA game originally developed by Twisted Pixel. The only problem is the game is only for Windows Phone 7.x, meaning those with Windows Phone 8 were unable to partake in the wacky platformer adventure. At the time, Microsoft informed us that they had no intentions to update the game for Windows Phone 8, making this game almost dead in the water upon release.
Last night, Microsoft re-published nearly 40 Xbox LIVE game titles for Windows Phone with two new features: support for Windows Phone 8.x devices, or support for 512 MB Windows Phones, or both. One of those games we missed is Ms. Spolsion Man and yes, for $2.99 (and a free trial) you can 'splode your way through the challenging levels of this exciting game.
Perhaps with the ability for a whole new audience, including those with 512 MB phones, to try out Ms. Splosion Man, this game can finally get the chance it deserves. Make sure you watch the bizarrely entertaining trailer too.

Hope this momentum grows faster...!
Ms. Splosion man is one super difficult game, loading times were horrible. Lets see how it performs on WP 8.
Only problem: Crashed after the first level and since then I haven't checked again. Played on Lumia 920 with WP8.
Next time I'm gonna check it on my 8.1 925.
Man it would be nice if there was any communication from MS.
Updating nearly 40 games and not a single word, don't get it.
iso far ive lost de Blob, Project Sunburst, Hydro Thunder Go, Doodle Jump, Mini Squadron, Chickens Cant Fly, Carcassonne, Monster Burner since i got my first WP, an omnia 7 & Glow Artisan is the only game on this big list that has come back.
wonder what chance of any of the other coming back.
