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: /n3rd-boy/

Kudos to Team Meat.

UPDATE - 2012-06-24
- reduced wall stickyness
- minor bugfixes

Thanks so much guys for all the feedback and the exposure on Newgrounds.

The game was based on a good idea, however, what made me stop was the walljump. It was really annoying that you would just stick to a wall and move like a slug when you touched it. It would be better if you would stick to a wall for as long ass you press the arrow key in its direction (for example --> ||) and you should fall fast if you release it. It bugged me that at the moment i touched wall, i had to wait until i was past the spike on the wall next to me, instead of just falling past it. If you would improve that, it would be a good game i think.

All in all, this isn't bad,it's just trying to hard to be what its trying to be. I know you were going for a Meat Boy-ish game but, its way too easy. The music and graphics are fine but,didn't fit together. On the other hand, the gameplay just felt odd.
Weird Wall-jump grips,sliding on the wall for too long,etc.
This game isn't bad but, other Meatboy-ish games were better like Skullface.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars
