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.

Ramping up in difficulty from hard to soul crushing SMB will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren't enough SMB also throws in epic boss fights, a level editor and tons of unlock able secrets, warp zones and hidden characters.

hmm what.

Is this good? Opinions welcome.

Six quid is about right for an indie, I prefer to wait for the price to lower on steam which it certainly will

Yes, very good! I have it on 360 and it's one of my favourite games this gen.

Obviously depends on your tastes; but if you like old school platforming games with pretty vicious difficulty at times, you'll love it. I've died over 6,000 times so far and am probably abuot 80% complete.

Patience is an absolute prerequisite. I can't remember playing a game with such tight controls and solid level design in years. It's up there with the best I've ever played in terms of responsiveness, control and probably level design. Although it's easier to get that right in 2D games.

It wouldn't sell at full price, but I've got more out of this than Reach, GT5 and I would, in some ways, be happy to pay retail price for this. It's that good (in my opinion!).

pretty much sums is up! have it on steam and enjoy it a lot so far

Any idea if this will register on Steam like some other D2D games?

This game blew my mine. It pays homage to every classic platformer from the 90's in it's styling.
Then there's the music - 8-bit synth retro goodness on every level.
It's tricky, but the game has so much character and quality that you keep going back for more.

Sounds good. Bit like N then.

It will be a good couple of months at least before it goes properly low, if you take Spank and DeathSpank as recent examples of Indie pricing on Steam.

Having said that, I can probably wait for a bargain price on Steam too as I have so many other games to play already.

Hot on this deal from me though.
