    My interest is piqued but I should probably avoid it for my own health. At the very least it would probably make me go grey faster.

    Don't agree with the review about the difficulty, I played through all the light world levels and didn't find them that bad at all up until around world 5, even then I managed to complete the game.

    I love this game, the only levels I've found insanely difficult are some of the very late dark world stages.

    I liked the review.

    I'm interested in the game but might not spend £12 on it.

    Well worth it.

    "When you've just got near the end of the level for the first time only for the jump button not to work, making you run stupidly off the end of the platform... words can't describe the anguish."

    I lol'd so hard.

    Is this game harder than IWBTG?

    Super Meat used to be the name of a brand of cat food years ago.

    I've gotten to the world 3 boss so far, and I would have to say this gamer is hard, but it's also extremely rewarding. I knew I was going to be dying a lot (I mean come on.. there's a death cam built into the game), but this is a game all about trial and error, error, error. When you finally manage to finish an especially tough level there's a great feeling of accomplishment. :D
