(Warning: Contains spoilers and JOJ <---- joke lol but seriously, has spoilers)

If you're not trying to beat this game without dying, it's very easy. Especially the final boss but the final boss was rather buggy. The first time I'm fighting her, it kinda looks like she's scrolling around the screen and using her magic to kill me all the time. I was like wtf? She's too fast and shit...eventually it slowed down a bit..The fight's too easy as well.

Now if you're trying to beat this game without dying then it is indeed very hard. Especially at stage 2-1. I do memorize the patterns but it's still hard...even when my reflexes are rather weak.

The voice acting and music are super fucking awesome.. I especially love how the final boss screams as she's dying and said "I regret nothing" Then dies.

It was a bug, thankfully, some of the Newgrounds users got a hold of it and now it's fixed!
You can now enjoy the cutscene!

A less visually impressive but equally enjoyable Super Meat Boy, it seems. I see this going places.

This game was immensely annoying, but I loved how it sort of pushed me to beat this game in one go.

The bug at the end with the boss sort of freaked me out as well, but I think it was a nice coincidence. The voice actors seemed appropriate, and the backgrounds seemed well. The patterns were intricate and deadly. I liked it overall, but felt somewhat short and a bit short-lived of a boss as well.

Great job.
