About This Game

Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux.

Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic NES titles like Mega Man 2, Ghost and Goblins and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Japanese one) and stream lines them down to the essential no BS straight forward twitch reflex platforming.

Ramping up in difficulty from hard to soul crushing SMB will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren't enough SMB also throws in epic boss fights, a level editor and tons of unlock able secrets, warp zones and hidden characters.
  • Story mode, featuring over 300 levels spanning 5+ chapters
  • Play as a Head Crab! (Steam Exclusive)
  • 33 legitimate Achievements
  • Warp zones that will warp you into other games
  • Over 16 unlockable able and playable characters from popular indie titles such as, Minecraft, Bit.Trip, VVVVVV and Machinarium
  • Epic Boss fights
  • Full Level Editor and Level Portal (January 2011)
  • A story so moving you will cry yourself to sleep for the rest of your life

An extremelly well designed platform game, nothing else to be said. Also, extremelly difficult. I certanlly recommend a controller. If you use a keyboard, use a cheap one, so you will not be too upset when you rage and break it.

I just realised i never reviewed this game so i supose it's time i do.
Super Meat Boy is an amazing game that takes the platformer and strips down every unnecessary element into a very simplistic, very satisfying series of small challenges with outstanding game feel and art and the very catchy and well-done soundtrack definately adds to it.
9/10

If you're a fan of rewarding experiences due to challenging levels and intense game play, then pick this title up. I cannot sing enough praises of this game. I absolutely love this game. There is a love/hate relationship though...as in; I hate how frustrated I get playing it, but I'll be damned if it isn't spot on.

Controls: Tight controls that are worth every ounce of effort put into them. Think you're jumping too high? Probably are from holding the button/key too long. (I hope you're not using a keyboard!)

Graphics: Throw back graphics that due the game justice as it isn't a "find this on the screen" type objective. The graphics work.

Sound: GREAT MUSIC! Holy crap the music never gets old, and the sound effects are great...even when your meat goes "squish*

Overall: I'd have to stem a rating of about 9.5/10. I can't say it's perfect, but damn if it isn't close. I've bought this game 6 times (twice for myself - 360 and Steam, and 4 copies for friends.) that is how much I enjoy the crap out of this game.

You WILL be challenged, and you CAN get through the levels through patience and skill. Timing is key, and how high you jump is also a factor. For even more variation of play, play with a friend and hot seat levels you get stuck on. You'll see how they are trying to get through the levels and how you might try something different. There isn't always just 1 single way to get through a level (at least early on...later levels there are much less options for completion)

Go get this game!

Instead of letting you set the keybinds, the developers locked this port into "arrow keys only" because they want you to use a controller.
...Even though this is a PC port.

Still a 9/10 game.
