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.

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.


It's a shame that you decided to take only the very basic mechanic of meat boy but chose to slap a cheap reskin and annoying 6 second loop onto it instead. I know it's a parody/tribute, but that doesn't really excuse the apparent lack of effort. I could rag on, but I know it would be pointless, so all I will say is don't let the poor reviews get you down -- make a more polished game next time instead!

Exactly like Meatboy, but with a nerd instead.

its nice to see a remake

The game is humorous and fun.
I like that its a parody of Meat Boy.

People find this review helpful!

Yeah man, you are right on the money. I really liked Super Meat Boy too and being creative is really hard. Better to just make a "parody/homage", that'll work.

Protip: Referencing the game you're copying does not make your second-rate rip-off any more appealing. The world did not need a slower, more boring Super Meat Boy with terrible artwork and music.
