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.

A frustrating, yet fun to play gameRedFrix | Dec. 2, 2013 | See all RedFrix's reviews »
Super Meat Boy is one of the best indie platformers that really gets me on trying to beat the level over and over even if I die a lot, not much platformers are really able to success that and that's what made Super Meat Boy popular. It has quite a big variety of levels, even more if you download user maps and even create your own for self-challenge. The story is kind of low, but that's not what the game was actually aiming for, I suppose. I recommend it for all the 2D platformer people who's really up into some frustrating fun time

If you lived through the gaming of the 90s you often reminisce of the days when games were unforgiving difficult and you required a perfect series of 10 events to go your way to progress (i certainly remember the hours spent having to perfect GTA1 levels). Super Meat Boy takes you right back there. Can make it frustrating because the last 15 years have softened you up to what it really meant to be a hard core gamer. Worthwhile for those who love a challenge
This game it's tough and hard like iron, but it's soooo good!!!!MauroR | Nov. 28, 2013 | See all MauroR's reviews »
If you're looking for though 2D platformer, one of those games who make you want to throw the controller from the window, a game that will test your patience and timing skill, well you found it: It's Super Meat Boy. The game controls are great even with a simple keyboard and I was surprised by this fact, usually this kind of game are a nightmare without a gamepad controller, but this game instead Super Meat Boy it's excellent even from a control view. Of course it plays the best with a gamepad controller, never forget this, but you'll get a great experience even if you want to play with a keyboard. There are also several playable characters to unlock from several other known indie game like Minecraft.
If you are up to the challenge, this game is waiting for you, and once you're in you can't stop playing it, so, what you're waiting for? Super Meat Boy needs your help, his girlfriend it's in danger.

Super Meat Boy is a platformer but not in the sense that Mario or Sonic are. While the the player is still tasked to get from point A to point B, the levels are short and can be completed within around 15 seconds if done correctly, but much more time than that will be spent on each one due to the intense difficulty of the game. Players control a boy made of meat (hence the name) and will be tasked with jumping off of walls, running from flying saw blades and leaping over pits of deadly spikes in order to save their girlfriend who happens to be made of bandages. But more than anything else, players will be dying over and over again. That is what makes the game so great though; the amount of difficulty makes it that much sweeter when you finally get your timing just right, evade every danger, and make it to the princess...er...bandage...girl.

Super meat boy is one of those "I'll only play one more level" games, and will leave you staying up for hours playing it. The controls are flawless, and everything works very smoothly. The cut-scenes and story line add for some great comedy and make the game even more enjoyable. The game is actually pretty big, having a huge library of hidden levels and characters to unlock, and there seems to always be something more to do. The only complaint I have about the game is its high price-tag for an indie game, but it still is worth it at full price, and I would recommend jumping for it if it goes on sale.
