Super Meat Boy is a platformer developed and published by Team Meat.

Super Meat Boy is a hard, soul crushing, spine tingling experience that will have you at the edge of your seat every moment. Think of the hardest platformer level you can. Got it? Well Super Meat Boy has harder levels than that.

You play as a piece of meat. Not a regular piece of meat that just sits there waiting to be eaten. You play as a nimble, charming yet funny piece of meat that takes parkour to the extreme. Your girlfriend has been kidnapped and it’s up to our meaty hero to get her back. On your hellish journey you will traverse many different locales, these range from salt factories to hell itself. Every location has it’s own distinct look and feel and will have to be approached in a different manner. At the end of every location you will have to complete a boss fight. These will test your nerves and your reflexes as you dodge, jump and float your way to defeat the nefarious villain.

Death is a huge part of this game, as in, you’ll be doing it a lot. Unlike other games, dying only drive you to complete the level rather than driving you to complete insanity. Oh boy and once a level is complete that took you ages the satisfaction and relief that befalls you is well worth it.

Super Pancake Boy!

Levels can be approached in many different ways with many different characters. There may only seem like one way to complete a level but once you master the controls you may find many different ways to tackle a single jump. Yes, there are different characters. These characters can be unlocked by finding and completing special warp zones hidden in different levels or gathering a certain amount of bandages that are located in certain levels. Each character has a different ability to the next and will be extremely helpful when a difficult level comes across your path that allows you to use that characters full potential.

Dark levels are a darker and much harder version of the level it is based off.

Super Meat Boy oozes awesomeness. Not a single moment in gameplay will have you bored or wishing for more. With over 300+ levels of extreme fun you will be entertained for many nights to come.
