"Super Meat Boy is one of the best modern platformers. It's infuriating, exasperating, and arduous, but it's also delightful, thrilling, and hilarious." - IGN.com
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.

One of the best and most satisfying platformers everrrMurderbot735 | July 27, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
I love this game. Almost everything is awesome about it. The level design is great and varying, the aesthetics are simple but good looking and also vary greatly between worlds, the sound effects are nice (especially when Super Meat Boy dies), completing a level and getting a good rating feels great, and even dying feels great. Painting the level in blood is awesome. There is also the option to play as other character than Super Meat Boy, but since they don't spread blood everywhere I don't really see the point. Get this game!

For what this game is, it's probably perfect! Aesthetically very nice and the gameplay has the perfect mix of frustrating and addicting. Definitely recommend, especially when it's on sale.

Get ready to die ridiculous amounts of times on each level. This game is very fun, addicting, and has a lot of levels that will take you a while to complete, but most of all, this game is HARD. Between the regular levels, the Dark World levels, the warp zones, and trying to get an A rank on every level, this game will last you a lifetime. Not to mention the community-made levels that can range between ridiculously easy and impossibly hard. While this game is not known for its story, it definitely has quality levels and smooth controls. I recommend this game to anyone who likes games they can go back to anytime, and people who don't get bored of games easily. WARNING: If you are easily frustrated or quickly get the urge to punch out your computer screen when stuck on levels, this game is not for you.

At the time, hyper difficult platforms were actually uncommon, and this is thier Harbinger. It's intense fun, the levels are short, making it a great choice when you have 5 minutes to spare. There are hundreds of levels though, and many achievements and challenges, plus the bonus super hard versions of every level give this more replay value than almost any platform out there. Still well worth the price tag, though it's odd that it hasn't dropped much in cost.

Super Meat Boy is some sort of hommage to retro video games like Super Mario Bros, Ghouls & Ghosts, Castlevania, Sonic. The story is pretty straightforward. You are Meat Boy and your girlfriend, Bandage Girl, was kidnapped by the evil Doctor Fetus. So... like some famous plumber, you’re going on a platforming adventure to save her. Super Meat Boy has every mechanics you need to create a great platform game : dash, wall-jump, secret levels, dangerous traps, even the cliché damsel in distress. The game is really really really hard but it never gets frustrating thanks to how fast it load your save file. It’s fun and addictive and there is a scoring system (Based on your time). Visually, Super Meat Boy won’t impress anyone but the art style has its charm. And the music won’t get out of your head after a few minutes of playing. It’s a new classic among platform games. Everyone should try it at least once!
