A lot of games these days baby the player with tutorials. This is widely considered to be redundant at best, and at worst, bad for the player for treating him like a moron.
But, as people in many western cultures fail to understand, there can be too much of a good thing.
It's bad to baby the player.
It's also bad to make a game so difficult for the sake of being difficult that it's annoying.
The same way it's bad to wither away and die due to dehydration, while it's also equally bad to drink so much that your stomach explodes and you die.
Don't let my choice of stars fool you- this is a good game, and an impressive prototype to say the least.
But when a game, a thing made specifically made to waste time makes you FEEL like you've wasted too much time on it just to get to the ending, it's flat out aggravating.
There is such a thing as a freakin' balance.
IN SHORT: Learn to balance your shit, maybe your games would be even more successful if they didn't cater specifically to people who can only get off from severe pains in the ass.

Overrated game doesn't mean BAD game, Meat boy is one of my favourite games, but actually it isn't the world best game... I't would be better if it have more levels, and the music is cool but repetitive. The most important thing is what i enjoy so much playing this game.

Cute interpretation of the typical platformer.
I was going to review this a lot earlier; yet I decided I'd leave it until I actually managed to complete the game, since, as I hoped, it had a very sufficient number of levels, and the difficulty throughout was more than satisfactory. If a game can frustrate me yet urge me to continue playing, then it's definitely a good game. Thus, this is one of the best Flash games I have played on Newgrounds.
Firstly, I loved the theme throughout this game. A lot of platformers I've played in the past have been basic, stick-figure, one-dimensional designs which only have the gameplay to make up for them. This game had nice graphics, the characters were original and playable, and the scenery was nice to look at while playing (despite often getting in the way). The storyline may not have been exactly original from the beginning, but the epic twist at the end of the Hell chapter had me surprised. The humour was beautiful too; the boss guy taking a shit was hilarious.
Although it took a while to master, I did find the movement very effective on the overall difficulty of the game. It was quite difficult to jump in the exact place you were aiming to, and as such, it took a while to get used to the controlling. It was nice to see, as it had one of the biggest impacts on the overall difficulty of the game.
One thing I was quite disappointed with was the difficulty curve - or lack of. Although there were many levels which had me frustrated and took me many attempts before finally completing, they weren't placed in any particular pattern. It often seemed like I would spend ages on one level, then spend about two minutes completing the next five. This happened every once in a while, where I feel it might have been better if the difficulty gradually sloped upwards. Regardless, the difficulty level was more above satisfactory. Many games on Newgrounds these days are far too easy, so I was glad for the challenge.
I also noticed there were a lot of worn-out, typical video-game cliches in the game, such as the 'ridiculously easy last level.' At least, that only applies to the Hell chapter, which I suppose you'd consider the last level in the main game. The Hell chapter took me quite a while to get through, and even though I had gotten quite frustrated at times, I was hoping for a near-impossible final challenge. Fortunately, the bonus chapter sufficed for that.
One thing I thought was quite lame, yet had no impact on my playing of the game, was the ability to skip levels, even if there were a few restrictions on that. I chose not to skip any levels to my advantage, so it doesn't have any effect on my enjoyment on the game, but still, I'm sure a lot of people would use this as a way of saying the game's easy.
The weak points aside, this game was brilliant; one of the best I have played in a long time on Newgrounds. A sequel, or as previously suggested, a fan-made level pack, or anything which gets me new levels designed by other people would be swell. After completing all of the levels in the main game (although, I didn't unlock all of the secrets. I'm still working on that as of now), I'm not done with this yet. I'd very much like to see more with this concept.
Other things to note which I enjoyed, such as the music, character designs, 'enemy' obstacles, they all help this game gain a 10 for me. I will undoubtedly play this game through its main levels again sometime, but I would still like to see a sequel, or any way to whore out more levels, as there can never be too many levels in a game like this. It still took a few hours of playing to complete, though, which is quite amazing for a Flash game. Most Flash games lose my interest after about half an hour at the most, so it goes to show how well this game had me hooked.
That being said, there was a sufficient number of levels, and the difficulty throughout them, although irregularly placed, was what made this game the most fun of all factors. I should also try playing this game with a 360 pad sometime, as the movement took a while to master with a keyboard.
I strongly hope you make more.
BAD GAME!
