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!

First, this game would be much better if you could mute the music. I love the soundtrack but it loops quickly and is badly compressed. Second, I think this is a pretty overrated game, it spawned another one which was amazing but it's clear that there were many improvements made. Even if this inspired the sequel, it's not very good. It's great to see that the controls were revamped but even so the game feels very bleak and devoid of substance compared to its successor. What I'm saying is that it's been improved in every way - but the original game is brutally difficult in the way that ISN'T appealing - you're fighting the controls. It's hard to time jumps when you always go a set amount that puts you in the way of timed obstacles.

To show how I feel this way - there is a level in which you must be able to slightly slide up a single block directly above you and jump at the perfect time - that's not a challenging yet rewarding experience, that's dumb.

Awesome Review/Level Code

This game is ok. I thought it was a mixture of fun, difficulty, and i found some parts puzzling.

Hate the controls

Giving this 6 out of 10 only because of the controls. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but your characters movement is incredibly sensitive. If you jump and only just tap a direction, you go flying. Because of this the game is much harder than it should be. I hope this error is resolved in the upcoming game. Liked the level design, sprites, and music though.

The controls are unbelievably crippled

The game itself is very good, but the controls are unbelievably crippled. The hardness does not come from the challenging jumps or mind bending puzzles, or even the memorization of patterns, it's just that you move WAY too much. The second level of the salt factory in particular suffers from this, because if you tap the left arrow key for .0001 seconds, you'll die from the salt on the right, and if you tap it for .00015 seconds, you'll die from the salt on the left, so you have to hit it for .000125 seconds, and then steer to land properly.

Jumping

Not bad, one problem though. Too hard to successfully land your jumps. Half the time, i'll slide off the edge when I land. Controls just have a bad feels to them I guess
