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.

If you want to play a fast and hard 2d arcade platformer, this is the game you should play. It's not very easy and not uber hard either only if you know how to best in it and not the game get the best of you. Must play for all platformer lovers who loves a bit of challenge.

This game is good. i read reviews before i bought it so i would know what to expect, and it delivered. very precise controls, and good level design. while the early levels are pretty easy, the game gets hard, and i mean HARD. But surprisingly not frustrating and hard. It seems like more of a challenge than it feels cheap, because level design is so good. Good game to play for minutes or hours at a time.
Hard as hell. Great as hell!thiefx | June 12, 2013 | See all thiefx's reviews »
Definitely not a casual game. This simple little platformer has you grinding your teeth as you splat Meatboy around levels filled with sawblades, rockets, lasers, mountains of deadly salt and much more.
Amazing 2d platforming control, and lots of hidden secrets to keep you busy for a long time.

I'll start by saying this is a very difficult game, it doesn't start off all too bad however the difficulty level increases very quickly! The game itself is stunning to look at and handles brilliantly, very responsive and tight controls which are needed due to the fast paced platforming nature of the game. If you don't find the game all that difficult then i'm sure the bandage girl levels will give you a run for your money after unlocking them upon game completion. This game is a must have!
