Glitches are a fault in games which produces an unexpected result, usually from errors. Like any video game, Sploder has a handful of glitches. While some glitches are harmless, short-lived, and sometimes even entertaining, some can occur for a long time, break functionality, and even harm the game (usually known as bugs).
Red text glitch instructions: Glitches that are severe or can make an level/game unplayable/unwinnable.
Blue text glitch instructions: Glitches only available in the level editor.
Green text glitch instructions: Glitches that benefit the player when creating a level or playing a level.
Yellow text glitch instructions: Minor glitch that doesn't really affect gameplay. A level can be beaten even with these glitches implemented in the level.
White normal/classic text glitch instructions: Glitches that only affect enemies.
Pink text glitch instructions: Glitches that only affect some objects.
Purple text glitch instructions: Neutral.
Objects Off The GridTo do this glitch, you must grab a object that attaches to an invisible grid (example, blocks). Then right click while holding the object, and a menu will appear. Release the object before closing the menu, and your object should be off the grid.
Broken Escape Pod Ending Sequence
To do this glitch, Get in a car, Start holding up while under the escape pod, and start holding down immediately after. The escape pod will activate and you'll remain the car. Exiting the car will end the glitch. If you stay in the car, the camera will eventually lock and then the level is completed in a funky way.
Weird Platform MechanicsWhen you touch the gravity switch while a enemy is on a platform, the enemy will go through the platform and go down but you will go upside down still. This glitch only works in tech world. The reason why this works is because enemies and other objects can't flip gravity and the retro arcade game thinks the top of the platform is not solid, only the bottom, Not just for the player, but for everything. A demonstration of those glitches: weird platform mechanics and broken dyson sprite can be found here
Broken Dyson SpriteIf you damage a dyson when it's swimming, it will be using the sprite when it's stunned when it recovers from being stunned. It is unknown why this happens. The demonstration of this glitch can be found here.
Never-exploding GrenadeWhen you pause and resume when a grenade is threw, it will not explode, and the beeping sound will still play. This glitch is happening in many games.
DoppelgangerThis glitch is very hard to do. There will be 2 blockheads. but you can add more blockheads or not. not much is known about it. An example can be found here.
Disruptor AtomicBeing hit by a disruptor with the Atomic power-up in effect will do some weird stuff. For example, when the disruptor energy wears off while atomic, your attacks will return to normal while you are still oversized and glowing. And if the atomic wears off while frozen, you'll not be glowing purple anymore but still stuck in place.
Flying Object/EnemyTo do this glitch, you must get the PowerGluv. then move a wheel or a enemy anywhere you want (the air, etc) then die, the enemy is still floating. The demonstration on how to do the glitch can be found here.
Sometimes, When the platformer player dies, The physics in the level will fail(?). Weird things happen, The list of some things that happen, Nothing weird/strange happens to the platformer player, though:
- The enemies will not attack you.
- The enemies also will not move, nor fly. This applies to an ally.
- If you go to any teleporter, It won't let you.
- The log will still be going down, not going up when you stept on, But it can still be pushed up by the player.
