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.

Super Meat Boy is one of the most challenging games you will ever play hands down, but it is also one of the most enjoyable games you will ever play.
Super Meat Boy has you play as Meat Boy as you run and jump through numerous levels, each one harder than the last with new areas offering new challenges and obstacles. And you will die. A lot. The game even makes fun of this in a boss fight. But you will also learn how to avoid what killed you, or at least you should if you wish to beat the game.
There is no story in Super Meat Boy. There are no power-ups. There is only the challenge, and beyond that, victory and the knowledge that you have beaten one of the hardest games in the world. Yes, even harder than Dark Souls.

Super Meat Boy is an indie rage inducing platform, which is also very fun. You're playing as a red cube-shaped character named Meat Boy, who needs to save his pink cube-shaped girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from the evil scientist Dr. Fetus. And along the way you can unlock secret characters which will help you in some stages. This game is very hard, but still fun to play. After many hours and tries I wasn't able to beat it, although I had fun. In overall this game is fun although sometimes it can make you scream at the computer screen, but after you'll finally beat a level you were stuck in for a long time you'll feel great. So I definitely recommend this game for players who like a challenge.
Indie Games' Star Childemptyhaven | Nov. 8, 2014 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
This game contributed a lot to the revitalization of the indie "genre". It's simple, yet challenging level designs and fun, rage-filled gameplay make this game one of my favorites. I couldn't believe the leap this game made from a simple flash game to a console port, and I still can't believe how well this game is doing.
It's obvious that people love it, and so do I. Every level presents an interesting challenge that requires almost all of precision to execute every jump and wall slide that my fingers don't know how to keep up in the later levels.
I also really love the cute character designs and the very inviting music that plays as you scream over how hard the game can get.
You will spend hours on this thing, but you will never regret a second of it.
Fun but a difficult game77Bottles | Sept. 19, 2014 | See all 77Bottles's reviews »
Super Meat Boy is a fantastic game about a boy made of living meat chasing after his kidnapped girlfriend. This game is very fun but aggravating because of difficulty. Luckily, although this game is difficult it is not punishing, and levels can be passed with some determination. Art and soundtrack are very well placed and level design gets progressively more challenging at a constant rate.
Very fun and challenging!Awesomedude864 | Sept. 12, 2014 | See all Awesomedude864's reviews »
If you like games that are hard but are rewarding then you'll love this game! At times you want to quit but at the same time you just want to beat that one level... Then you spend more time just trying to beat the next one and the one after that, and before you know it- it's been two hours. Overall the game is awesome!
