Buzzsaws, rocket launchers, and piles of used syringes--you name it, it’s here, and it wants you dead. Super Meat Boy is a precision platformer in its purest form. There’s no health--if you slip, trip, tumble, or so much as touch anything that looks remotely dangerous, you’ll see your poor meat boy splattered into a (persistent) puddle of red goo.
Fortunately, Team Meat kept the focus on short levels and quick gameplay. Almost every stage takes less than 30 seconds to complete once you know what you’re doing, and when you die (and you will die), you start the stage over instantly with no load time. Super Meat Boy’s bite-sized levels become miniature training grounds. After some practice, return to a level that once gave you trouble, and you'll be amazed how easy it's become. There’s a pretty high skill cap on this one.
