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.

Seems a nice game, i have played trough till level 14 when writing this, the story describes my live xD except the thing that steals my pc lol
And that giggling thing, it really creeped me out at first xD , it was just to random lol
love the game and it is a nice parody of meat boy, you see the the source of inspiration reflecting in your game, which is a good thing i think, the only thing that annoy's me (not really but idk how to put it in words) it is that you can just get the disk and kill yourself, which kinda takes the trill away of getting and surviving , but it is fun to try to do it legit anyways :)

good and fun game in my mind ^^

To be honest, in the first version of this game you weren't able to suicide grab the floppies.
I changed it due to the fact, that it annoyed me a lot during playtesting...

However, I'm gonna give it some thought. Thanks.
And lol about your giggling experience, hehe. There's more to it than just giggling you know ;)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very good, the visuals are nice, the gameplay feels pretty tight and the levels are fun. though I did stop playing on level 7 since it got a bit too difficult for me. The gameplay reminds me alot of Meat boy.

Overall pretty good.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It's a good game, a nice concept, but the controls aren't as good as they need to be to make it as great as it could be. You stick to the walls for too long when trying to just fall, and it just feels kinda... sticky. Overall, it's a good game, though.

Awesome game! I have just one problem with it...
There are too many "lava run" levels. You know, the ones where you have to move up before the lava gets you?

I know you hear this a lot, but take a page from Super Meat Boy or even Newgrounds' Deadly Dungeons, having one "lava run" per section. Otherwise its just gets redundant and annoying.

Otherwise, awesome game!

PS. (I don't know where to get the last secret trophy D:)
