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.

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

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


This is obvious mimick of meat boy

Obvious mimic is obvious.

This game was really good. I liked how it was 8-bit and the guy only cared about the computer. that was hilarious. I think you should make a sequel, but i am going to give u suggestions about a sequel. Make the levels a bit harder. And add power-ups or something. I like the fact u can wall-jump, but sticking to the walls got kinda annoying, so add power-ups instead. That would make it better, but nice game right now.

knarrenheinz responds:

Thanks for the viable feedback.

Well... to be honest... THIS GAME ROCKS!!!! you should make a sequel of it!

You might consider making the difficulty increase more quickly and eliminating some similar levels. As others have mentioned, getting stuck on walls is annoying. It could use some more surprises and excitement.

I would like to say for one that the puzzles are nice and hard for this. At the same time, the fact that you can't control when you are wall sliding and when you aren't is a bit counter-intuitive to how things are normally done in games. When I am stuck sliding against a wall while mashing the opposite direction to try to step off, it doesn't feel right.

As for the true test of sanity? It is given to us by Dennis Keitel. The only song in the game has nearly got me on a mission to hunt him down. More music to choose from please!

Thanks for the feedback. Hahaha, I laughed so hard at "the true test of sanity". The way you wrote that is plain cool :D
