‘Super Meat Boy Forever’ Plays Exactly How You’d Expect It to at PAX West

As we mentioned last week, Super Meat Boy Forever is once again a thing on mobile. We’re still skeptical as to whether or not it’ll ever get released on the App Store, but, considering recent news we shot some video of it on the show floor at PAX West. The demo we played is running on the Switch, but it seems painfully obvious that the game and its simple controls were designed for a touch screen.

Like the original Super Meat Boy, Forever is super difficult. It’s an auto-runner, and the two things you can control as the player are jumping, dashing in-air while you’re jumping, and sliding under things. Unsurprisingly, they nail how fast it is to retry a level as in Super Meat Boy Forever you’re going to be dying a lot.
