Super Meat Boy: "Just Like It Sounds"
Posted: Thursday October 22nd, 2009 by

Okay... maybe it's a little perverted but not in the way you think. Meat Boy is an indie game where you literally play as a boy made out of meat. You bounce around levels splattering blood all over the place.

Here's the breakdown. Meat Boy is out with his soul mate Bandaid Girl. The evil Dr. Fetus sees this and decides to steal Bandaid Girl and kill Meat Boy. Meat Boy is trying to save Bandaid girl. And that's were this difficult little platformer starts.

The original game is free [more info] but has generated such a cult following that a graphically improved version, Super Meat Boy, is coming to Steam and WiiWare Q1 of next year.

Now, I've tried playing Meat Boy and it's fun, but put simply I suck. It's hardcore. A bit too hardcore me. There is an app to play the game with a 360 controller though. I can only imagine that would make it a bit easier. Dunno, haven't tried it yet. But for those of you that fuss at me for suggesting all these games... see? I mentioned a free one! Of course, I also mentioned that there's a pay version coming early next year but hey **points** free! **points again**
