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

I bought this game a while ago during a sale for a few dollars. It's very fun and challenging but can definitely be frustrating.

This game... I never thought I'd care about it when I was told about it. It always gets described as a "rage game".

It is, but it deserves more than that. This game punishes you when you don't execute a jump right and fly off into a saw blade. It doesn't hide information from you like a Mario Maker level or the like.

This game is Mario Bros.: EXTREME Edition. It's hard. It's fantastic. It might get you hard. I don't know. I don't judge.

It's ****ing fantastic. Buy it. I don't care if it's on sale or not. The makers of this gem ****ing deserve it.

P.S.: This game is NOT for those who get turned off from a game because they died 500 times. You will die. A LOT. Be a stubborn fool like me and smash your meaty brains into the wall. It's SO worth it.

I love to see the tears of the ones who try to 100% this game.

Some of it's achievements are even included on the hardest achievements of all time lists, so good lucky with that. Really.

Super Meat Boy is supposedly a rage inducing game... as someone with potential anger issues i have no qualms with this game, maybe ending up crying in the corner of my room slurping up icecream mixed with my tears while screaming along to Linkin Park - Numb. But never anger. This game is in my opinion a load of fun but very difficult so if you're anything like me, temperamental, before playing this game call some suicide watch service and beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of that chodelike slab of meat (again).

beating World 1: This isnt that hard, what are people talking about.
beating World 2: You know, this shouldn't be this hard right? I must be bad at videogames
beating World 3: Nope, the game is just mean.
beating World 4: Hell is a pretty good term for it.
beating World 5: Well ♥♥♥♥.
beating World 6: NOW I know that this game does hate me.

I am conflicted about Super Meat Boy. There is without a doubt that this game, when it comes down to its core concept and mechanics, is stellar, yet the occasional autoscrolling section or seemingly haphazard obstacle completely breaks the immersion of the experience for anyone as irascible as me. Nevertheless, even with my personal qualms with its design, I would be foolish to ignore Super Meat Boy as a vanguard of independent games and its influence on 2D platformers as a whole. 8.0/10.
