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 delivers strongly with a package of responsive, tight controls, a great variety of levels and good art direction. You need a lot of patience with this game, it's super hard. It's important to not that I always felt the game was very fair though, every failure was caused by myself, not being unlucky. You might want to get an extra gamepad for this game, in case you find your first one accidentally smashed to bits. ;-)
An Indie platformer game, with insane difficulty, a huge amount of replayability? Getting this game back in 2010 was a shocker for me, paying $15 for it seemed more than worthwhile back then, even if I found myself nearly destroying my controller on several occasions, if you don't have this title by now, and you enjoy platformers to any degree, I suggest you buy it, it's so cheap now, so many characters to unlock, just beating the game will drive you up the wall, but finishing it is extremely satisfying, then you realize you want to go back and get 106% completion... Yes I said 106%
Super Meat Boy is challenging but very enjoyable. The graphics and music are well done, and the level design is quite good. You will fail a lot, though, so be prepared for that. The game has a lot of charm and style, and a very unique and nice sense of humor. I recommend this even if you're not a big fan of platformers, because I'm not and I enjoyed this. It's just a shame you can't share your levels anymore.
I bought this game for the "kids" to play. Now it's an all out war over who gets the controller. Gameplay feels just about perfect. I'm surprised at how fun I found this game as I usually like the big blockbuster type games. Thanks for turning me on to the world of indie games, and the hours of yelling at my screen. Highly recommend giving this one a try.
If you're thinking, why you should pay for a game, that exists as a free flash game, well the fact that here you can save your progress is enough in itself for such a hard game, but it comes with tons of extras as well. The game is hard, yes, so insanely hard, that if you actually can complete it a 100 percent, you are a ninja. Not the kind, that can catch an arrow, but the kind, that can finish ninja gaiden on the NES, which is harder! Also, this version has guest characters, all of which are pretty cute, and fun to play with, plus the animation at the end of every level is just....look, search it on youtube, the way all your attempts start at the same time are spectacular, especially if you screwed up a lot.
