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!

A fun challenge, but sometimes sloppy.

Overall this was a fun game, and the controls took some getting used to at first, because it was hard to control. Some parts I would say this is more of a challenge. But a lot of it was just sloppy and frustrating. Now don't get me wrong, I beat the game, so I'm not just complaining because it was "too hard," the controls were just off in some places. Especially the missles. Those things could be pretty far away from you and still manage to kill you.

Also it was frustrating that at some points you could basically touch a block that should kill you, and get away with it, and others you could be virtually two blocks away from the same block and have it kill you.

It was also difficult during the moving levels. This game basically depended on having good precision, which is easy to practice from level-to-level, but it's hard to have precision on the go.

I think all in all there's only three levels I skipped, only one being in the main three chapters. That one was the one in Hell with the ceiling of rockets. That wasn't even based on skill, to beat it you really just have to get lucky.

All in all though it was interesting, fun, and challenging (Albeit sloppy). The ending was hilarious, and the unlockables were fun to try an obtain as well. Good job!

Not bad

Don't get me wrong, the game WAS slightly challenging, but there was really only one level I skipped, and more out of boredom than frustration. To constantly remind us that "MEAT BOY IS HARD!" is not only lewd, it's misleading. The game just wasn't as much of a challenge as you made it out to be. Otherwise, a pretty stock-standard platformer with somewhat slippery controls (which I count in your favour since I'm guessing that was intentional.

Fun, but. . .

I'm sure a lot of people say that the controls for the game suck and are too touchy. I agree, but the game is still fun. It takes steady fingers to play this game and win. Too bad my hands shake.

Its highly recommended that meat boy is played with the Xbox 360 controller?

the controls suck... and um people that play games on the pc play them for the key board... not for a controller so.... yea..... dont make games for controllers

after the first few levels it was just annoying dieing because of bad controls

It's okay

As much as I like this game and all of the super-duper hard meta-games that test the sanity and reflexes of the player, I just don't agree with the reasoning behind the game. The main and perhaps only reason why Meatboy and similar games are ridiculously hard is because the controls are deliberately made to frustrate the player with slips and mis-adjusted timing. Games are meant to empower the player with better controls, not the other way around.

That said, Meatboy is still a good game to play. Especially for its humor and will to beat near-impossible. That is why I give it a 7/10.
