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: /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.

The character is WAY too sticky. You should only stick to walls when you press against them with the controls, not just because you're close enough. Also, consider WASD as a control option.

Also, did you play this game? It's pretty difficult starting around stage 14.

When I played this game I felt like I was playing Megaman Zero without enemies or weapons, but with worse controls.

Very unresponsive controls, works for other games so I know it's not me. However, it's a good idea.

walljump and walljump and walljunp... at the begining was funny, but borring in shortly time

Exactly like Meatboy, but with a nerd instead.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

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.
