Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 42015
PCNov 30, 2010
Nintendo SwitchJan 11, 2018

Developer: Team Meat

Genre: Platformer

Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux.

Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic NES titles like Mega Man 2, Ghost and Goblins and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Japanese one) and stream lines them down to the essential no BS straight forward twitch reflex platforming.

Indie gaming at its retro-loving best, with some of the most cunningly-designed and purposefully infuriating 2D gameplay ever seen.

Super Meat Boy feels at home on Nintendo Switch. It's the very same 2D platformer that made us sweat on 360, PS4, Vita and Wii U, that has jumped to Switch retaining its tight controls and huge amount of levels and secrets. A modern classic that every lover of the platform genre should play.

Super Meat Boy on the Switch is a fine port of the game.  If you've yet to play it, this is a modern indie classic that holds a lot of value in its challenge and depth.

Super Meat Boy is an exercise in patience. You may in fact deplore it in the first one or two hours due to its unforgiving gameplay and level design, but if you take the time to consume much of what it has to offer, you may just acquire a taste for it.
