"Solid 2D platformer with well designed levels and adorable art. High amount of content, including a level editor. Very difficult, but very gratifying."

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

Things I learned from Super Meat Boy.
It is possible to love the one thing you truely hate.
There really is an art of dying.
My 360 controller flys further than my ps3 controller.
My neighbors can hear me through two brick walls at night.
My neighbors think Im a serial killer.
I might actually be a serial killer.

Not my favorite platformer of all time. That title has been awarded to Spelunky. SMB is up there in 2nd place without a doubt. An intense, super addictive, twitch platformer with soul.

4.5 cubes of meat out of 5 and a must own for any respectable platform gamer.

imagine dark souls only as a platformer and take away the rpg, make it harder and make everything dangerous instakill you and you have super meat boy. its a great game that makes you feel like you messed up and even though it feels like torture at times, it feels so good to beat that level you were stuck on, sigh in relief and then remember that there is more torture, pain and suffering to come as you go to the next level. get it if you feel like torturing and enjoying yourself at the same time.
