Super Meat Boy
Another post, another game.
Super Meat Boy is a single player action puzzle game where you're a little piece of meat and you have to get from point A to point B whilst maneuvering yourself around various deathtraps. The game itself is pretty simple, you got sprint jump and move, that's it. The hard part is nailing jumps, timing your run and dodging anything and everything that looks even slightly dangerous.
From what I've played so far the game's pretty decent. Sure, you can get stuck on a level for what may seem like an eternity but that's all part of the fun in my opinion. Getting a little bit further every attempt until you finally get the whole thing right is rewarding enough to make the game still enjoyable without being a pushover.
The storyline and cut scenes are pretty comical, to see a little cube of meat being all baller and trying to save his bandaged girlfriend from what appears to be a circus clown/illusionist had me laughing the first couple of times.
I don't think I'll be starting any new games in the near future so I might actually finish the story mode of something!!
