It may be nearly six years old but Super Meat Boy holds a huge place in the memories of many an Xbox 360 gamer. Right now it is available to download for free as part of the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for June 2016. Fancy creating some memories of your own?
Stripped of its price tag for the next two weeks, Super Meat Boy is available as a free download to all those holding an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Whilst the game is native to Xbox 360, thanks to the awesome backwards compatibility scheme, you can also play it directly on your Xbox One. We promise you that once you’ve checked out some of its manic, stupidly tough gameplay, you quite possibly won’t be able to put it down again!
If you need to know more about the Xbox Games With Gold titles for June 2016, then we’ve got you covered.
Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who’s trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux. Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic retro titles we all know and love and stream lines them down to the essential no bull straight forward twitch reflex platforming. Ramping up in difficulty from hard to soul crushing SMB will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren’t enough SMB also throws in epic boss fights, tons of unlock able secrets, warp zones and hidden characters.
