I've got up to level 6-5 Omega in Super Meat Boy. I've tried beating it dozens times now, but I fail at the same place. And my fingers hurt. :)

How can I safely go down after I get the key in this level?

I can "easily" play the level up to that key, and then I die when trying to go down. I don't even know what challenges await me after I get the key.

It is possible to simply drop from the Key's platform back to the ground below, avoiding the walls entirely. It is also possible (and perhaps intended) to simply wall hop between the two walls(though if you haven't been playing the dark world levels, you may not have had as much practice with the precise timing).

Here's a video displaying a successful run of Omega -- and remember to not give up! Getting to the key is the hard part!

I could get down by simply falling without jumping. A very subtle curve when falling is needed to avoid the saws. Thank you! –  Denilson Sá Feb 13 '11 at 17:49

I actually found it much easier to wallhop than fall down to avoid the saws.

The trick is to make sure not to hold the run button; then tap the jump-button very quickly while sliding down the wall, before hitting the saw. You'll still need a bit of in-air influence using the joystick to make sure you don't hit the opposite saw, of course.
