Super Meat Boy Forever will frustrate you; there's no doubt about it. But that's part of its draw. Just as games like Cuphead have an audience, the Super Meat Boy franchise has a slightly less masochistic one.

I can't imagine that many fans of the original Super Meat Boy won't love this new take on the formula. The levels have been masterfully crafted to accentuate the auto-run mechanic, and frankly it's refreshing to not have just another tough-as-nails platformer given their abundance on Switch eShop.

Super Meat Boy Forever is quite different from Super Meat Boy, but as its own game, it’s both difficult and rewarding.

Super Meat Boy Forever is clearly a lovingly designed sequel to the original hard as nails platformer. It takes on a new genre but still retains some familiar beats to keep players coming back for more. It might not be the sequel some fans were waiting for, but on its own, it’s an addictingly well-designed platformer for a modest price.

Fans of Super Meat Boy that get accustomed to the autorun feature will have their fair share of hardcore jump'n'run action. People that tend to throw their controllers after trying the same sequene for the 8th time should try the game out or watch our gameplay video beforehand. But even though the game is sometimes quite demanding skillwise there was never an unfair situation. Furthermore, the levels' length make the game ideal for short sessions.

Like the original, Super Meat Boy Forever tests your resolve, but it's easy to jump back into the action and the thrill of success is worth the endurance

Super Meat Boy Forever makes some big mechanical changes but maintains its predecessor's reputation as one of gaming's toughest, most satisfying platforming challenges.

To compare Super Meat Boy Forever to its predecessor is folly. They're two different types of games, but Team Meat makes sure to inject its unique seasoning into both. As far as auto-runners go, Forever stands along the top as one of the best in the genre, despite a short story length. With so many possible stage layouts, a multitude of challenging mechanics, and Team Meat's fluid platforming design, it makes this game feel like a joy.

Super Meat Boy Forever is an incredibly polished and fully worthwhile sequel to the platforming classic.

To echo my thoughts – no, Forever is not Super Meat Boy 2, nor was it ever meant to be.
