Rated 4 / 5 stars

I'm only giving a four star, as I would for some of my old favorite games because of the ending. I feel like all my hard work was for nothing. We don't see if she ACTUALLY wishes the village back or who the blue haired girl is all it is is a flash of light.

I understand that concept of open ending but for a game like this? Golly I put in enough work I want a big finally. It was very anti climactic.

Which is sad because my want to see her though and see what happen is what kept me going though even at my 200 life loss at 2-1 (It is really late and a bunch of them where me dosing off in the middle)

Again it's a really great game, as people have said, it's way to hard at the start and easy at the end. I think you should have switched the order to Castle, Mines and then Snow Fields (graveyard?) There where also times when I wasn't even near an object and it killed me, while other times I had stepped back after going though half a ghost and not dying.

Also it was fairly short other then the dying bits. If I was better with my coordination I could have flown though the game. I heard you where making a second game to this (though other reviews) So I hope this helps sort of.

I actually really liked the voice acting. :3

(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.
