"Super Meat Boy: The Game" For iOS Won't Be A "S****y Port"

"Super Meat Boy: The Game" For iOS Won't Be A "S****y Port"

Team Meat's been pretty critical of the App Store in the past, so it comes as a pleasant surprise that the Super Meat Boy devs are moving forward with a version of the game on iOS. It's called Super Meat Boy: The Game, and they've promised that it's not going to be "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." Phew!

"So as some of you know, we have been playing with the idea of porting SMB on the iphone for some time," they wrote in a recent blog post. "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!"

They're pretty adamant about the fact that it's going to be a totally different game, "SPECIFICALLY designed for Touch devices," with new sound, art and everything else. Games like League of Evil have proved that that's doable, so we're excited to see what Team Meat comes up with. What other iOS platformers are worth their salt? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
