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!

Don't get me wrong but...

I love the overall style of this game and the simple platforming elements, however I found myself angrily yelling at the screen most of the game...I even went so far as to phrases such as "COME ON COCKMEAT BOY JUMP! JUUMP!!!" It's not that it's a BAD game. I just find that Meat Boy doesn't like to stand still in the air and that he likes to slide UP walls a bit. The game is too sensitive for using a keypad- but that doesn't mean I didn't have fun. I had a blast playing the levels and each one was its own challenge. My fingers on my right hand hurt from pressing the keys so hard from wall-jumping.... The music is nice as well. It's gonna be stuck in my head for a while now....

I really am trying to like this game.

The physics behind every key movement are too chaotic.

It's hard to tell whether you'll careen off face first into death, or sluggishly slide off a platform into another pit of death.
And that one in every 50 chance of actually going the distance you intended to go.

Nice graphics, well made, smooth, some nice mechanics, and hard in some of the right ways, but again, russian roulette in jumps.

Even harder than I thought.

The one thing that would have made this game a 10 is if grabbing a wall actually slowed your descent, or even better, stopped you fall for a half second. Just that one thing would have made this game so much better.

It's not bad, but felt awkward.

It's certainly not a bad game, I got quite far, unlocked a few things.
What killed it for me is the controls... There is simply too much horizontal acceleration. It is far too easy to overshoot even with just a little tap and miss the single safe square you're supposed to land on. Then you get to start over.
