From Jonathan Mcentee and Edmund McMillen comes an old-school platformer with loads of meaty goodness. In Meat Boy, you and the girlfriend Band-Aid Girl are having a good time when she gets kidnapped by some blob-type thing. You need to get her back but in your way stands a series of dastardly jumping puzzles. With blocky graphics, a catchy soundtrack, and ever challenging (yet addictive) puzzles, it makes for some great retro fun.
Play Meat Boy at Newgrounds.
The cute little fleshbag will be making a transition to the Nintendo Wii as a WiiWare title; Super Meat Boy is slated for release later this year. They seem to have got the ball rolling with some potentially offensive advertising that takes a dig at vegetarians and Hitler in the same breath.
The dubious text has since been edited out on the game developer’s blog. Keep updated with the game’s progress at Super Meat Boy.
