Super Meat Boy on iOS


In a recent blog post by Team Meat, who are the developers of the platform game, Super Meat Boy, they have announced the development of a completely revamped Super Meat Boy for the Apple iOS. There isn't any planned release date yet as the Team just started working on this project. The game will be called "Super Meat Boy: The Game" and the blog author, Edmund, tells us some important things we should expect:

What the game is:

- A feature length touch controlled platformer SPECIFICALLY designed for Touch devices.

What the game isn't:

- a shitty port of an existing game with non tactile buttons spread all over the screen blocking the players view and making for frustrating controls.

- the Super Meat Boy you're used to, there are aspects of Super Meat Boy in there, obviously, but this is a brand new game with new art, new sound, everything.

Not a lot of details were released, but we should expect more updates in the future, if you want to follow up on Team Meat's progress, check out their blog here.

Super Meat Boy is currently available for the Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux systems. The game is about a cute yet manly cube-shaped piece of meat character who attempts to rescue his girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from Dr. Fetus (Yup...). Super Meat Boy contains at least 300 levels to keep you occupied for a very long time, as you try to reach the end by dodging, climbing, and jumping past deadly obstacles. So iOS users will be amazed once they get their hands on this great game, it won't be an identical port from the other systems, but something new.

Check out some gameplay footage while your at it



Looks simple at first, but gets much more difficult as you progress through the game.

    1. Super Meat Boy is the successor of the flash version "Meat Boy". First released on the 360, then came the other platforms.
