Manufacturer's Description

Super Meat Boy is a platform game developed by Team Meat and designed by Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, and is the successor to McMillen and Jonathan McEntee's flash game, Meat Boy, originally released in October 2008. Super Meat Boy was released on Xbox Live Arcade on October 20, 2010, and on Windows on November 30, 2010. Versions for Mac and Linux are planned for future release. The game follows Meat Boy as he attempts to rescue his girlfriend Bandage Girl from the villainous Dr. Fetus through over 300 levels filled with deadly hazards.

The game received acclaim from critics. It received the award for Most Challenging Game from IGN in 2010 and also received awards for Best Downloadable Game from GameSpot and GameTrailers that same year. Critics lauded the game's precise control, unique retro art style, and soundtrack by Danny Baranowsky. Reviewers generally praised the game's high difficulty, though some warned that not all consumers would appreciate the difficult levels. The game has been a commercial success, having sold more than 600,000 copies.

The game sees players taking on the role of a small, skinless, cube-shaped character named Meat Boy, who must save his girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from the evil Dr. Fetus. The game is divided into multiple chapters, which together contain over 300 levels. Players must guide Meat Boy to the end of each level while avoiding buzzsaws, salt, and various other fatal obstacles. The player can jump and run, and can stick to walls in order to either jump off of them or to slide down them. The core gameplay can be compared to many traditional platformers such as Mega Man and N, requiring fine control and split-second timing.

Levels in each chapter can be played in any order, but a certain number of levels need to be completed to access the boss stage, which unlocks the next chapter if cleared. The player has an unlimited number of attempts to complete each level; if Meat Boy is killed he immediately restarts the level, though the red blood left behind on surfaces that the player has touched remains. Completing a level within a certain time will earn an "A+" grade, which unlocks a harder alternate level in the "dark world". In addition to these, there are hidden warp zones, accessed by finding portals in specific levels. These feature retro styled bonus levels, which have a limit of three lives or are patterned after another video game. Clearing certain warp zones or collecting enough bandages, which are hidden within the game's levels, unlocks guest characters from other indie games. There is also a replay function, accessed after a level has been completed, which shows all of the player's attempts at completing the level simultaneously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done 28 Dec 2011
Edition:Rare Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In the genuinely entertaining manual/sketchbook/comic that accompanies this package, there are some ruminations on the topic of hardcore platformers - specifically the ingredients that make a good one. What this largely boils down to is the difference between `challenge' and `frustration': the former provokes that teeth-gnashing, knuckle-whitening, just-one-more-go reaction with which all gamers should be familiar, whilst the latter leads to nothing more than broken gamepads and sulking.

Fortunately, the awesomely anagrammatical Team Meat are fully aware of this difference, and have created a blood-soaked beast of a game that will punish you over and over for the slightest mistake, but still - through cunning level design, well-balanced risk/reward systems and honest to goodness fun - makes you come back for more.

Putting you in the shoes of a boy made of raw meat, whose girlfriend (made of bandages) has been stolen by an evil foetus in a jar (yes, yes, just go with it...), Super Meat Boy sees you braving landscapes of buzzsaws, discarded medical waste, heaps of salt and other such things that may cause much consternation to the meaty gent, resulting in a messy death.

You WILL die. A lot. Of that there is no doubt. Infinite lives make this less of a concern, but that does not make the game easy. Progress is often made by inches, with carnage in your wake. Meat Boy leaves a trail of blood on any surface he touches (or, as it often the case, dies next to), giving the player a useful visual guide that shows how much progress has thus far been made, or where that last fatal mistake occurred.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Edition for fans 13 April 2012
By Mario
Edition:Rare Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you liked super meat boy but already had the game, it doesnt matter, this edition is a must have for all smb fans. The artbook and the soundtrack are marvellous.
The shirt was size "L", but the real size is more like L and a half.
Just in case, this edition won't work in Mac computers

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooked to perfection 19 Sep 2011
Edition:Rare Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The best collector's edition you can desire for a game as beautiful as Meat Boy. The box itself is extremely good looking and will surely make a great impression on your guests; The T-shirt is really nice, confortable and comes with an XL (more like an XXL ) so that almost everyone could fit in; the poster is double-sided so that you can choose a big meat-grin or the "extremely-realistic-old-school-style" painted by a really awesome artist.
At last, but not least, we got this awesome... err... "Art-book" with nice reference and art (on the bad side the text sometimes is really tiny); in addition, included with the game you'll find the amazing soundtrack and some nice papercraft and pictures.

Buy this, and you will not regret it, the price is very low for its content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super meat Tshirt 15 Jan 2013
By Vi11ain
Edition:Rare Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the tshirt i got with this edition, i guess its a XL or XXL and i generally wear a M or L. But I use it during my dance practices, looks kinda cool when you do the hip hop ;)
The games packaging is OK..you get a tshirt,some soundtrack disc and the game...But the game is an absolute treat to play if you like sidescrollers. I wish they had made this game for the PS Vita.

By Mr Baz #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
Edition:Rare Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Minus one star for annoying steam (which as per usual didn't install properly on the first go)
Little point in packaging a CD rom if you have nothing on it bar the steam software, not that this is a big game to download a small footprint.
You get a decent T shirt which is really quite nice and unusual too, poster and comic type books with some puzzles in it too. Not a bad deal really for what you get.

The game is good, but quite hard and something that you will either love or have no time for at all. Best played in small bite sized chunks it is challenging and requires some thought even if it's a simple platformer and retro nod game. I bought it for the T shirt (which is good quality and comfy) consider the game a bonus item! It's a game you play once in a while simple yet can be very difficult at times.

Everything's in the title ! I literally fell in love with Super Meat Boy and I was hoping I could find a t-shirt to wear while finishing it (i'm still at 70%, and progressing bit by bit), but i couldn't find an affordable one. For 19£, i got a copy of the game, a nice box, a comic and a beautiful t-shirt that would have been much more expensive if bought individually !

As others say, it's an XL t-shirt (100% cotton), so it's a little large for me, but i don't think i may wear it in dinners.
