About Super Meat Boy

Super Meat Boy is a tough-as-nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux. Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own wellbeing to save his damsel in distress.

Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic titles and streamlines them down to essential twitch reflex platforming. Ramping up difficulty from hard to soul-crushing, Super Meat Boy will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren't enough, Super Meat Bot also throws in epic boss fights, tons of unlockable secrets, warp zones and hidden characters!

And now coming first to Nintendo Switch™ is a brand new way to play Super Meat Boy with your friends. Introducing "RACE MODE"! In this 2-player split screen race, friends (or enemies) can compete against each other through individual chapters, randomized levels, or the entire game! Choose light world, dark world, or both and have at it. Side effects may include: elevated heartbeat, severe anxiety, hubris, and schadenfreude.

  • Retry levels as many times as necessary.
  • Take down big bad bosses!
  • Unlock hidden playable characters.
