A vertical speedrun platformer and a parody to Meat Boy. This brutal wall-jump affair gets harder and harder and even more harder as you progress through the 42 murderous levels - all mixed up with a nerdy story

- Music composed by Dennis Keitel
- Entry for StencylJam2012
- Featuring the random giggling guy and his cake secret(!)
- Coming soon to iOS... NOT

Watch the credits for cheatcodes and hints (press "i w c" at the same time in the level select screen) :)
Thanks to all people and cats who made this possible.

If you wanna host this game, please use this version: http://codinsoft.de/games /n3rd-boy/

Kudos to Team Meat.

For now lets ignore the fact that it was inspired from Meat Boy. As a game, it's capable of holding some replay value (which is important for most games), if you dont mind the small monotony of the graphics and song and what not. There are 2 things i believe would make this better:

1) Add the ability to control the player with the WASD control scheme (where W= Up, S=Down, A=Left, & D=Right) "along" with the arrow control scheme. This way People with those different preferences can play the game comfortably.

2) Edit the wall jumping mechanics. The reason why is because sometimes you can just be "by" the wall and start sliding when instead you want to drop down fast. That probably wouldnt be an issue if you could just "tap" the direction away from the wall and drop down, however, it seems you have to hold the opposing direction for a while to jump, which can be detrimental in the wrong situation. Perhaps you can just make it so that "tapping" in the direction opposing the wall makes you drop from the wall. Also, if you want to, make it so that you dont activate the wall slide until you press direction going towards the wall (or make this an enable/disable option in the option/settings). Since you kinda float anyway this would allow you to get close to the wall without sliding perhaps.

On a side note, i like the fact that you didnt make it so that "touching" the side of the spikes doesnt harm you. Hate stuff that pulls that NES logic on me.. lulz.

[Some After Thoughts: Notice how you float when you jump and move? If possible (and if you want to, of course), perhaps you can make slider that adjusts how much you float in game.]

I found this to be a fairly enjoyable game. What I liked most about it was probably how good the graphics are. It just seemed to be this really interesting world that you created. As expected, you have to be really careful with not hitting the sides of the spikes and stuff. You usually have to slowly go down (or up) each level in order to properly advance. It's probably the best game I've played all day.

I like how you have this really macabre music. It seems like it's been awhile since I played a game featured for StencylJam. It's probably a bit too long, but it is fairly satisfying in the end. It's interesting to have all this hopping and stuff going around. I appreciate the good thoughts.

"it is fairly satisfying in the end". Wow, you actually did play through the whole game? Did you also find out how to play with the secret girl character? In case you didn't, PM me :) Thanks for the kind words.

Never in my life has a game made me this frustrated, kudos. But I didn't like the whole sliding deal, it can really fuck you over in the end.

Thanks, I'm forwarding your praises to the musician. It would be great, if you could PM me about the "glitchy at times" stuff with some more details. Thanks.
