Super Meat Boy

 

Contrary to rumours, this game is not based on Lady Gaga.

Super Meat Boy is a critically acclaimed precision platformer based on the flash game released in 2008. It sees you in control of ‘Meat Boy’, a cuboid sprite who must brave certain, gruesome death to save his girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from the villainous Dr.Fetus. As this is part of the ‘masochistic hardcore’ genre you should expect to die more times than you can count, and to fight the natural reflex to punch someone in the face every time you do.

Super Meat Boy is developed by Team Meat, and is available for Xbox Live Arcade and Microsoft Windows, with a Mac release planned for the near future.
