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!

Harder than a well-done steak

Yeah, looking back at that summary now, it seems pretty cheesy, but I can't be bothered going back and changing it. It still applies to this game though!

Expect to get frustrated with this as Meat Boy can be a tricky little critter to control. Which is to be expected when you are a sentient meat blob. The controls fell a little loose for this, and Meat Boy always has the feeling that he wants to slide off a little further than you've taken him. This can lead to many instances of landing perfecxtly on the one safe part of the environent you needed, before he slides just that little bit into the nearest buzzsaw or flame.

Still, as already mentioned, he is a huge blob of meat, so this is well represented within the simplistic looking graphics by you leaving a huge bllody meat trail wherever your character has touched. It's a fairly small thing, but one that shows the level of detail and humour that has gone into this game.

I'm not a huge fan of scrolling levels, as they are easily one of the most annoying aspects of games, and they aren't much better here. I do appreciate that if you are way ahead of the slow crawl that it moves at, the screen will automatically scroll faster to catch up with you rather than leaving you waiting around for it to catch up. It akes the hassle of dying a lot less bothersome when you know it's only going to take 5 seconds to get back to where you previouslty were.

Overall this is a fun game, with an absolutely ridiculous premise, that anages to work thanks to simplistic visuals and jaunty music!

Challenging but a blast!

This is one of the best games I've ever played on Newgrounds. It is difficult but is in no way frustrating since the challenge is rewarding. The art style is fantastic as well and the game is funny too because of the ending and the secret reward for collecting all the band-aids. I would love to see a console release of a full sequel by you like on Xbox Live Arcade.
