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!

Defines what a good platformer should be.

Its a shame that todays games are not like games in the 90s. I do know that this is suposed to be the prototype to Super Meat Boy, I am not able to play it due to the fact that I don't have a 360. However, that does not refrain me from playing this game. The controls-while not so tight- hold up very well. The art style is definetly a plus. The fact that it also alows you to do what ever you want is the best part. I am tottaly looking forward to playing Super Meat Boy on the 360 if I ever get one. In other words, great job in making a masterpeice.

In case you ever look back.

Super Meat Boy is one of the best games I've played in a very long time. It's everything that games today lack. The controls are awesome, the story is silly and strange, and the levels are extremely challenging. You guys did a brilliant job, every last bit of my free time has been sucked away by the little meat sack.

Congrats on a modern classic.

An absolutely amazing platformer with the perfect amount of arcadey-ness and the difficulty ramps up just perfectly; by the last level I was doing things I never would've thought I could do when I first started up the game. Great job!

Fantastic game

Pretty much all the issues I've had with this game have been said already so I won't repeat them (the controls being the major issue I have, the person who commented below me explained it perfectly). Another for me, though, is that I don't like how when you jump while standing next to a wall, without pressing any direction keys, you automatically wall jump. I think it should be you have to hold the appropriate direction key while jumping in order to wall jump because I often am slammed the wrong direction when I just want to jump straight up (take for instance, standing on a breaking block next a wall and just want to jump straight up so I can fall and slightly dodge a flame below me without being fired across the screen).

The music fantastic, really modern and "cool" for such a retro style game. I liked the graphics but maybe a bit "blockier"? Maybe it's just me, but I love that old style retro feel!

Especially clever was you allowing people to skip certain levels if they were particularly stuck because everyone knows it's often the psychological aspect of being stuck which prevents you from getting through it. Playing a different level will usually help you calm down and figure out the one you couldn't earlier.

So overall, I thought it was a brilliant game, really enjoyed playing it. As everyone else has stated, the controls are horrible and non-intuitive, in the sense when you move you either crawl and fly forward at full speed. Maybe they're too sensitive? A control change option would be nice too for people who prefer say, WASD for movement and shift for jump. Not meant to be something against the game as itself, just a suggestion as a nice addition :)

Can't wait for the full version! (I think you should correct this game though for people who play this will judge SMB by the controls)
