This is NOT Super Meat Boy!

Its simply the flash prototype that Super Meat Boy was based off of.
SMB, will play very differently and is 100% new.. what im saying is if you even slightly enjoy the prototype, you will LOVE SMB!

Brilliant prototype!

This game is an excellent Flash masterpiece. It takes platformer back to a day when it took hours to complete a single mission and you'd have to hammer the controls for weeks to get any achievements. At the same time, this game rarely made me want to break something, every time I died I tried again and progressed just a tiny bit, and it was a noticeable tiny bit, I could see a gradual improvement and that made me aware that the missions were possible and that I could complete it.

The music was very good too. Especially in the introductory sequence where it did sound retro with lots of bleeps. As the game went on the music kept a high-tempo and exciting rhythm that suited the style of gameplay perfectly. The art wasn't detailed, but it really didn't need to be, chucking in details galore probably would have ruined the experience, everything was very quaint.

The only thing that disappointed me in this game was the lack of control and the unpredictably lubricated blocks. Control felt temperamental, at the flick of an arrow key Meat Boy would either budge a unsatisfactory inch or he'd fly around the map like crazy. If you fix up the control scheme, which made it feel unfair not difficult, unlike the maps, for Super Meat Boy, it will be an absolutely outstanding title.

Impressive prototype, with a few programming tweaks I could see a renaissance in platforming! ;)
