Super Meat Boy
Super Meat Boy is a hardcore tribute to the side-scrolling days of old. While there are plenty of challenging side scrolling games out there, Super Meat Boy takes a massive approach to the genre and includes over 300 levels! The gameplay is meant to push gamers to their limits, and the game features an "A+" mode that unlocks even more super-challenging levels. This is one game that should not be attempted by the faint of heart!
