It is not a game for me. The music is great, the graphic style is great. But Electronic Super Joy is not for me.
I’m not saying it isn’t a good game. But it is a difficult game! It took me 10 minutes to do the intro, WHICH CAN BE COMPLETED IN UNDER 35 SECONDS.
And I’m not saying that it is Battletoads hard. Actually, yes. Yes it is. This is if Super Meat Boy got put in a flashing nightclub with unforgiving ledges and the need for some damn good jumps. It does have many check-points, but I still died repeatedly.
Here is a transcription of my audible reactions when playing the game:
Shit. Fuck. Fuck. Dammit. Shit. GODDAMNIT. YES! FUCK NO! Shit. Shit.
Shit. SHIT SHIT SHIT. FUCK DAMN GAHH!!!
You can see where this is going.
Super Meat Boy for masochists. I know a few, and am curious what their opinions are…
If you want to put yourself through… this game, see if you are up for it, check it out on Steam. Only $8 to feel my pain (or succeed and mock me).
I was given a review copy of the game. Played on PC via Steam with a standard keyboard.
