Praise the Meat! Super Meat Boy, the platform game in which players control a small, red, cube-shaped character named Meat Boy, will be coming to the iOS. Mac fans everywhere can now rejoice as we get to help Meat Boy save his girlfriend Bandage Girl from Dr. Fetus.
The developers behind this indie game, Team Meat, announced on their blog that they are completely re-doing the game from the ground up in order to take full advantage of the touch screen aspect. I've included the full statement from the Team Meat site below.
So as some of you know, we have been playing with the idea of porting SMB on the iphone for some time...
Sadly, there was no way of doing this without the game becoming a pile of garbage, Super Meat Boy is a twitch platformer with precision controls, there was no way in hell this would work on a touch screen with buttons all over it, Super Meat Boy isn't a game we want to make a sub-par version of just to cash in...
So, we decided to totally remake the whole game instead, from the ground up!
We just started working on it so I'm are sure a lot will change as development unfolds but we do have a few major talking points of what the game is and what the game isn't. 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.
Solstice Arena is a 'Speed MOBA' from Zynga where matches last between 5-10 minutes, there are no creep waves and everything is a lot more simplified.
