Super Meat Boy is a platformer arcade game developed by Team Meat and designed by Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes. In this adventure, you will have to use all your skills with the keyboard or the controller because it is not easy. You will control Super Meat Boy, a little meat cube, whose girlfriend, Bandage Girl, has been kidnapped by Dr. Fetus. Super Meat Boy will undertake a quest for his girl, and he will have to face spikes, saws, lava rivers, salt, and everything you can imagine. Our meat hero can jump, get glued to the walls (for a little time), can run and of course, he can die. He can die an unlimited number of times, and believe me, he is going to die a lot of times under your control.
The player knows that he or she fails because of his or her skills, not because of the controls
This game is not the typical platformer in which you have to collect coins or jump over cute mushrooms; you will have to survive thousands of dangers. Your only purpose is to reach your beloved Bandage Girl. Graphically speaking, the game has a retro style, 16 bit like. It makes references to famous games such as Donkey Kong or Mega Man. The music is quite rhythmic, with electric guitar and a rock touch. This music gives a good atmosphere and also give you the energy to accomplish your mission.
You are going to die a million times, accept it
Meat Boy is a very agile character. He is fast, and this is a reason why some players can lose control of him, but, I'm sorry to tell you this but... It's not the game's fault, it's the fault of the player. The controls of this adventure are perfect. If you fall and die, it is because you have misjudged the distance. If you hit the spikes, it will be your fault. You cannot raise objections to the controls nor the physics, because it is here where Super Meat Boy shows its heart, what makes the game so successful. That's the key, the player knows that he or she fails because of his or her skills, not because of the controls, and for this reason, they keep on trying until they win. The only advice I can give to you is to rehear again and again until you are a pro.
Once you download it, you will be able to play more than 300 levels, divided into worlds such as The Forest or The Cotton Factory. The vast majority of the levels belongs to the campaign mode, but there are also some of them that belong to other characters, or alternative versions of the original ones, known as The Dark World. You will be able to unlock new characters to play. Once you get a new character, you can use it in the middle of a level if you want. The controls vary from one character to another, allowing you to float for a moment, jump with a gun to modify the jump, or go back in time three seconds. The different characters belong to other indie games such as Braid, Bit. Trip or N/N+.
