About the 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.

I bought this game at Winter Sales 2013 for 2$, but started playing it just lately.
I gotta say that it's well worth the 15$ original price it has!
Very entertaining and well designed Arcade game with a lot of potential.

Pros:
- Level Design
- Unlocks
- Music
- Achievements
- Trading Cards
- Storyline
- Mechanics and general design.

Cons:
- Non-editable controls

I'll give this game a fair 8/10.
Recommend for Arcade game fans and those who want to play something simple :)

I always thought that "videogames make violent people" was bullcrap.

Then I played this game.

Fun, cheap game with awesome creativity and gameplay.

Soundtrack is marvelous through the entire game and makes some of the hardest parts less frustrating (...The Kid...).

Like how the difficulty keeps getting harder and harder as you advance through the stages, culminating in fun, well designed boss fights with awesome music.

Overall 10/10
