The challenge of Super Meat Boy returns in Super Meat Boy Forever! Levels are brutal and death is inevitable. Players will run, jump, punch and kick their way through familiar places and new worlds all while enjoying a story truly meant for the big screen.
Super Meat Boy Forever PC Game Review
I loved that they kept the original comical over-the-top humour of the first Super Meat Boy. Even down to the last charming sharp line art. Graphic settings can go up to 4K natively, making this super crisp. All in all a perfect fit for the comic style art.
The music and atmosphere are a great continuation from part one. It’s super challenging, with levels now being procedurally generated. Controls are sharp and responsive. But, you can only control jumping and ducking, the game does the “running” for you!
Super Meat Boy Forever is an auto-runner. Meaning you cannot control the direction nor even the speed of your meaty protagonist. Outside of being stopped by a straight 90° wall, there’s no stopping. After trying to overcome my sincere dislike of this for an hour, I put away my controller in disgust. This way of playing feels alien on my gaming laptop. As I am more used to this on a mobile.
A mobile iteration is which is what was intended for the game originally as far as I gathered, but losing the ability to directly control the protagonist on the “big platforms” with an actual controller kills the game outright for me on a controller-based platform like console or PC.
Overall, I do like Super Meat Boy Forever is a side scroller now and procedurally generated. But not being able to be in the driver seat here is just not for me. Finally, check out our site for other reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
