A look at Super Meat Boy

Posted: October 19, 2010 by Tim Utley in News and Updates

Is this the return of Classic Platforming?

This game has been getting an adequate amount of buzz on the web and i felt the need to look into it.  Super Meat Boy comes from developers Team Meat and they are looking to rank amongst other classic platforming greats.  From what i have discovered thus far this game is attempting to recreate that classic/frustrating platforming experience seen in games like Super Mario Brothers and Megaman.  With rudimentary controls seen in platformers of yesteryear, retro-style pixelated graphics, and an unforgiving difficulty really make this game feel and look like an instant classic.  I will be investigating this game more in the coming days as it launches tomorrow on Xbox 360, Wii, PC, and Mac.  If i get hooked like so many other early viewers i will be providing a review later in the week.
