First Look At Super Meat Boy, Completely Rebuilt For Mobile Devices

When Team Meat set out to create a Super Meat Boy version for touchscreen mobile devices, creators Tommy Refenes and Edward McMillen vowed they wouldn't just slap a virtual gamepad on the thing and do some half-arsed port of their downloadable hit for PC and Xbox 360.

They've fleshed out their vision more and offered this first screenshot to show that the game is not the Super Meat Boy you've played on a big screen. "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," they write. "We just started working on it so I'm are sure a lot will change as development unfolds but we do have a few major talking points of what the game is and what the game isn't."

    Pretty excited for this. Team Meat make a solid game.

    And I'd like to repost this from the article above so people don't get too excited about touch-screen gaming and the lack of physical controls:

    Super Meat Boy. The ultimate 2D platformer of the 21st century! The controls are just so perfect.

    Didn't they mock this before? I think this is an april fool's thing.
