Super Meat Boy for iOS



More info in the link below. Basically it won't be a port from the original game, its a completely new game developed to take advantage of the touchscreen.

It's definitely strange how they announce it on the day of April Fools. Lol.

Was just about to say that, lol.


Either way, I am not a fan of either expansion of the acronym SMB. I hate how this game has become popular while being pretty crap.

I was sure I heard an announcement from the SMB devs saying that all production including updating, etc, had been cut.. They had a tough time pumping out the original game so I'd be surprised if they'd choose to keep going with it.

I disagree with Echo though, the original SMB was awesome imo. It's mechanics are very basic but I still played it far more than any other platformer that i've played in recent years.

I prefer Jumper - same game type (came out earlier) and has comparatively tighter controls. I despise SMB's sloppiness. Yes it works for some people, yes it's a conscious design choice, but I prefer knowing that if I hit a corner of a block, I will have 1/10th of a second to jump off (jumper), instead of wondering if I may or may not slip off before I hammer the jump key again (SMB).

Super Meat Boy is one of the greatest platformers of all time for me... this is indeed good news for iOS (read Fireball post, there's hope). If it has the same controls as League of Evil it will be perfect
