Meat boy navigates these hazards by running, jumping and wall sliding his way to the end of each level which is represented by meat boy's girlfriend, bandage girl. Some of the unlock able characters have unique powers, but for the most part players will rely on reflexes and split second timing in order to navigate meat boy to the end of each level. players have as many lives as needed in order to complete a level, except in certain secret levels where at times only a limited number of lives are available. Levels are separated into chapters, and completing a number of levels in each chapter will unlock a boss fight that, when beaten, will unlock the next chapter. Secrets can be found, bandage items can be collected to unlock new characters. Some secret areas can only be found by some using some characters and and some bosses can only be beaten by some characters. The game finds success by being simple with a ton of different options, secrets and variations.

Meat boy wiki

Super Meat Boy Forever is an indieplatform video game developed by Team Meat for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, iOS, Android and Linux. Originally planned as a mobile-only version of Super Meat Boy, Super Meat Boy Forever was gradually developed into a full-fledged sequel featuring its new auto-runner control scheme and randomly generated levels. The game was released on December 23, 2020 for the Switch, PC and current-gen consoles, and is planned for next-gen consoles and mobile devices in the future.

Gameplay[edit]

Super Meat Boy Forever expands on Super Meat Boy's challenging gameplay, as well as the main villain Dr. Fetus. Meat Boy and Bandage Girl's child Nugget has been kidnapped by Dr. Fetus and the couple must work together to rescue her. Both characters can kick and punch enemies and must avoid deadly obstacles to save Nugget. The control scheme uses two buttons.[1] Levels are randomly generated based on the player's skill level by combining seamless premade level segments created by the designers.[2]

The biggest gameplay change introduced in Super Meat Boy Forever is that it is an auto-runner, with the player only having control of non-scrolling movement interactions like wall-jumping and regular jumping.[3]

Plot[edit]

The game takes place a few years after the original Super Meat Boy with Meat Boy and Bandage Girl enjoying life while having a picnic with their newborn daughter Nugget. Suddenly, Dr. Fetus attacks them both and kidnaps Nugget. They both go on a quest to save Nugget.

The first world tilted 'Chipper Grove' has a similar appearance to the opening picnic scene mentioned before. In this world, basic game mechanics are introduced gradually. The boss fight of Chipper Grove is Big Slugger, a larger version of the Lil’ Slugger boss which was introduced in the original Super Meat Boy. After the boss is defeated and Nugget triggered the ejection button of the mech’s cockpit, a cutscene displays the destruction caused by Dr. Fetus and Big Slugger, as well as a rouge group of animals led by a battle-scarred squirrel (which becomes an unlockable character later on in the game.) The animals follow in pursuit of Meat Boy and Bandage Girl. In the next area, 'The Clinic,' which is an abandoned mental health clinic, the duo faces off against Manic, a biologically engineered brain with telekinetic powers that created an entity composed of broken glass and syringes called the Manipulator and defeat him by triggering the fan switches to expose his point of vulnerability (thanks to Nugget, though unintentionally as she was playing with the light switch that also activated the fans). Meanwhile after the fight, the animal squad march forth to wage war against Dr. Fetus, using the Big Slugger against it’s inventor which was at first pulled by a herd of deer, but then recruited Manic to power the machine and take revenge against his creator for abandoning him in the second boss fight. Once Meat Boy and Bandage Girl arrive in the city of Tetanusville, Dr. Fetus uses a very special security system called the Lab Guardian to eliminate them, but they manage to destroy it. Dr. Fetus, in extreme anger, gives them both the middle finger (in which Nugget does the same to three butterflies). Dr. Fetus then takes Nugget to The Lab, which is Dr. Fetus’ hideout. After they defeat a bunch of his clones and the real him, the animal squad along with Manic approach Dr. Fetus, only for Dr. Fetus to show the middle finger on a screen which causes the tank to explode, making the whole squad including the squirrel on the verge of death making Nugget cry. But just as Dr. Fetus could celebrate his victory, the squirrel pushes a button that begins to fast-forward time, causes Meat Boy and Bandage Girl to age, and transports the entire planet to the Other Side. When the duo adventures through the Other Side, they fight against Alpha Omega (possibly a god). After they defeat Alpha Omega, Nugget returns and they are reunited, only for Alpha Omega to kill them by crushing them. But just as they were about to die, Nugget shows her pacifier to Alpha Omega, turning it back to Dr. Fetus. Meat Boy and Bandage Girl both punch Dr. Fetus in the face, thus rewinding time. Back at the lab after the Dr. Fetus fight, the animal squad and Manic sees Dr. Fetus defeated for good and declare their war against them a victory. Meat Boy and Bandage Girl then leave with Nugget in happiness, and Dr. Fetus sees the pacifier Nugget gave to him and says goodbye to the family. During the credits, a montage shows Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, & Nugget spending time together, and the animal squad, and Manic rebuild the forest. In two after-credits scenes, it shows Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, & Nugget enjoying life again and walking away happily into the sunset. Meanwhile, Dr. Fetus makes many Meat Boy clones and arms himself with a shotgun. The screen then turns black saying 'Dr. Fetus Will Return.'

Development[edit]

Development for Super Meat Boy Forever was announced in 2014 as a mobile-only sequel to the original Super Meat Boy.[4] Team Meat founders Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes originally teased the project as a 'live-action stealth game' called A Voyeur for September, but this was later revealed to be an anagram for Super Meat Boy Forever.[4] After a few years of little to no public updates, Edmund McMillen left Team Meat and began focusing on other intellectual property such as The Binding of Isaac and The End Is Nigh. Refenes said to not 'hold your breath' expecting McMillen to come back after Super Meat Boy Forever is released.[5]

In 2017, Refenes restarted the project as a full-fledged sequel.[6] In the following year several new team members joined Team Meat to help with development. Among the new team members were Kyle Pulver (Lead level designer) (Offspring Fling, Snapshot), Lala Fuchs (Lead Artist) and Paul ter Voorde (Animation director). Ridiculon, who composed the music for the PlayStation 4 version of Super Meat Boy, returned to compose the sequel's soundtrack.[7] Refenes explains that even though the game is still coming to mobile, this version was developed primarily as a console game.[1] The new version of the game was revealed at PAX Prime 2017 and was showcased by Nintendo during their Nindies Summer 2017 Showcase,[8] and the PAX demo of the game was well received by the media.[1] The game was scheduled for an April 2019 release,[9] but was pushed back to December 2020.[10]

The game was released on December 23, 2020 as a timed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch and Epic Games Store, with console and Steam versions following in 2021.[11]

Reception[edit]

The Nintendo Switch version holds a 71 based on 8 critic reviews with an average user score of 4.8, indicating mixed or average reviews. The PC version holds a 73 based on 4 critic reviews with an average user score of 4.0.
