Super Meat Boy: Forever is now out on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. It retails for $19.99, though Team Meat said that it will be 10% off from now until April 23.

Key characters return, and there are even more levels this time around; according to the developers, there are literally “thousands of levels to see,” many of which are entirely unique. As “a tribute to the golden era of console platformers,” as Team Meat calls it, Forever boasts hours and hours of playtime. 

The sequel to the nail-bittingly-hard Super Meat Boy (which I, for the life of me, could never beat despite very much wanting to), Forever released for PC and Nintendo Switch in December 2020 to mostly mixed reviews. Though we loved the game for its faithfulness to the original cube-shaped meat pie, we thought that Forever is actually a bit too easy in comparison. 

In our Super Meat Boy: Forever review, we said that the “autorunner controls take away some of the best aspects of the original, [making it feel] oversimplified. [The] variable difficulty and shifting levels make things feel unfinished.” 

Either way, Super Meat Boy: Forever is still certainly well-worth the look for any fans of platformers, and especially the original. 7s are good games, too, and Forever has a lot of great things going for it, including “charming characters, nice use of powerups and mechanic shifts, and [its] huge variety of levels.”
