Exploding is the only move 'Splosion Man has in is disposal. Exploding is used for regular jumps, wall jumping and exploding barrels to make larger and faster jumps. Three explosions can be done before 'Splosion Man burns out and requiring some time on land to regenerate. It is this simple mechanic that makes the game very intuitive and easy to play. "
