Description

"This sublime platformer provides tons of challenge, precise controls, and incredible level design that will keep you glued to the screen." - GameSpot.com

"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.

A lot of fun and RAGE!

Super Meat Boy is a really good platformer.

The story is simply. You are meat boy. Dr. Fetus kidnappes Bandage Girl.You then go to save her. The gameplay is great. You will be really satisfied when you finally finish a level. The background music is repetitive but really good.

I spent over 30 hours on this game so I recommend it.

Really hard platform game

It's the hardest platform game that I've ever played. If you have times to spend and if you want an innovative game... well, buy it! 300+ Levels. Oh, yes! And it's also very funny. It's try to think that it's an Indie game, because it's a perfect platform game.

I loved this game. The game was a series of pretty difficult puzzles that were made with ingenuity. No part in the game lead to an ounce of boredom. I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a true challenge from a video game.

Extremely enjoyable, but extremely hard.

This game is an extremely fun platformer that will quickly latch onto your brain as you try again, and again, and again. If there is one problem with this game it is that the difficulty spikes up. A fair number of people will not complete this game, and many will quit before they are half way through. However they will likely be having the time of their life when they are playing this game. Firstly the fluidity of the controls are amazing. You can easily get the little meat boy to go in any which direction. My only complaint is that you will almost constantly be pressing run, which is in an awkward position on the keyboard, so there may be some fatigue after long periods of play. The music in this game is amazingly good, and there are a fair number of tracks shown throughout the game. The gameplay is amazingly good. The designers of this really knew what they were doing, and each level brings in something different. I still haven't gotten through all of the levels, which there are many of. In fact if you do happen to run out of the many (280?) levels there are extra player made ones for free.

No Skin? No Problem!

Autocyclist | March 7, 2014 | See all Autocyclist's reviews »

An absolutely crushing game, designed to punish you just as much as reward you. In Super Meat Boy, you play as a skinless boy trying to save your girlfriend made of band-aids from a malevolent foetus in a jar and a tuxedo. This is of course achieved by zipping through level after level of hazards, ranging from meat grinding blades to rivers of maggots. Super Meat Boy is hundreds of levels of pure challenge and frustration. Your thumbs will hurt, your eyes will twitch, your heart will leap and your nerves will fry. But you'll get there in the end and you'll feel like a god for it. I'd give it two thumbs up, if they weren't so ravaged by RSI.
