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.


Currently on lvl 32.
Very fun game, entertaining, difficult but in a good way, good controls, fitting music (but not enough different ones).

And now, for some bug reports/criticism :
-: ice blocs are buggy. When you jump on or when you fall on one, the nerd will sometime act as if they were no block : he just falls through the ice block. Note that the nerd doesn't get stuck. If there is floor below he can just jump through. If there is a saw.... too bad.
-; you will die if you stand on the edge of a canon when it's shooting.
-: every single "rising lava/acid" level that I did (didn't try lvl 32 yet) had one horrible design flaw. When you start one of this lvl, you will quickly outrun the rising lava, giving you a sense of achievement and safety. But in every single lvl, there will be around the end an element of level design specifically here to make you lose time : destrucible rocks, mazes, turbo-lava... Basically, the game makes you think that you are safe because you put some distance with the scrolling, but it's completely wrong : two tiny mistake, or one missed jump and you are screwed. Even if the lava is two screens behind. It would be a fine (but mean) element for one or two levels, but they are all like that. In these levels, you are not racing against lava because it's not on screen : you are simply racing against time. Those time wasters are annoying as hell.

Thanks for the good feedback. My improvement list is getting longer :)

auto zero for using a 3 instead of a e

is this suppose to be like a nerdd meatboy?

every time i press new game it crashes my internet

knarrenheinz responds:

Please make sure that you have the latest flash player plugin and browser versions installed. There was a common flash problem with Firefox 13 quite recently which got fixed within Firefox 13.0.1.

Anyway, this is just speculation about your problem and the cause may be something different :(
PM me if you have no idea what to do.

very good game and sound track. it is glitchy at times but this is going in my vault of favorites for shure.

Thanks, I'm forwarding your praises to the musician. It would be great, if you could PM me about the "glitchy at times" stuff with some more details. Thanks.
