The lights are on
Team Meat is bringing its grueling platformer to Apple's touch devices. A new blog post on the developer's website outlines its plans for the iOS port. Team Meat says the whole game is being remade from the ground up.
They just started working on the project, so don't expect a release anytime soon. Here's what you should (and shouldn't) expect per Team Meat:
What the game is:
- A feature length touch controlled platformer SPECIFICALLY designed for Touch devices.
What the game isn't:
- a sh*tty 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.

I cannot wait! SMB is brutal and grueling, yet satisfying. I cannot wait to see how Team Meat deals with the issue of controls on the Ipad. Maybe with the higher resolution of the retina display the controls will tighten up.
Hahhaa nice. It looks cute and fun.
I've had some experience with hardcore platformers on iOS, they can be pretty difficult to maneuver, many a time I have missed a "button" in some very crucial moments in a game (I'm looking at you, League of Evil!). I just hope Team Meat finds a way to successfully integrate Super Meat Boy with iOS.
That guy on the bus who just released a string of expletives at a handheld game before going back to holding his breath will now be playing this.
I'm excited for this, I just have a question. Didn't the guys at Team Meat say they were not going to return to Super Meat Boy, or did that mean just like a sequel? Nevertheless, I'm still excited and can't (or can, I guess) wait for this to come out.
sounds good to me i haven't played the pc version yet ( have it tho) but it looks like a game that would be good on ipad for the right price .
this might get to to finally play the game for the first time...
I haven't played this, but I'm a fan of difficult platformers, so I may check it out before the IOS game is released.
At first I wondered if this was an April Fools joke, because I have trouble with games like Earthworm Jim on the iphone, this game would be impossible... But, I have faith that given they are completely reworking the title it won't just end up as a port with nearly unusable controls.
I don't know, with 100ms input lag it'll be pretty difficult to play it.
Err, didn't they say when they finished the level editor that they were done with SMB? As in, no more updates, no sequel, nuthin'?
Sounds awesome to me because I currently don't have a Xbox 360 to play Super Meat Boy so this is a great alternative.
Great, great news
