Super Meat Boy is a platform videogame developed by Team Meat. It is available for Windows PC via Steam and Xbox 360 via Xbox Live. The game was originally created as the sequel to the browser based videogame Meat Boy. The original Xbox 360 version was successful, so the game was ported to other systems such as Windows PC and Linux. In fact, Super Meat Boy has become so popular that a new version for mobile devices has been launched, featuring enhanced graphics and control schemes adapted for touch screens.
This title was designed following the standards of difficulty that players enjoyed back in the 90’s
The aim of this platformer is to reach the end of each level without dying. This may sound simple, but in fact it isn’t, since the most characteristic feature of Super Meat Boy is its extremely high level of difficulty. This title was designed following the old standards of difficulty that players enjoyed back in the 90’s, so you will have to use the trial and error method more than once until you figure out the best way to complete a level.
Blood and Saws
First of all, you have to understand that Super Meat Boy is not a regular platformer game. You play the role of Meat Boy, a red cube of meat that starts on a quest to rescue Bandage Girl (another cube of meat) from the evil Dr. Fetus (yes, he’s actually a fetus). This title is split into seven themed worlds such as a forest full of dangerous saws or a hospital where syringes are the main threat. There is an additional world depending on the version you play: The Internets for Xbox and Super Meat World for PC.
You are free to complete this title in the regular way without trouble, but you can also go ahead and try to unlock all its additional contents. This title is full of collectibles such as bandages located in tricky places within the levels and hidden characters that will be unlocked once you complete a series of extra levels or collect a certain number of bandages. These characters belong to other indie games such as Bit Trip Runner, Alien Hominid or Braid. Moreover, there is a secret difficulty level, The Dark World, which turns every world into a much more challenging experience, like if the regular difficulty level wasn’t hard enough!
