I started playing Super Meat Boy yesterday, and while I was able to beat the first world (Forest) without really any difficulty. Beating the XMas levels are very hard. I'm having a really hard time with the very first board.

  • Are the rest of the boards on this christmas world that hard? Harder?
  • Any tips for the first board? It requires quite the perfect execution, but maybe I'm doing somewhing wrong?

    Doesn't require perfection, but you can't quit (one play session). Also, FWIW, it's the wrong achievement, but we'll see if they're going to change it.

While the other special gift-awarding christmas achievements were meant to be gentle introductions into their respective games, both of Team Meat's games - Super Meat Boy and the Binding of Isaac, both already incredibly difficult games as it is - chose to pick the most insanely difficult achievements imaginable.

So, hopefully you didn't spend too much time trying to get the gift for this achievement, as even for SMB veterans this achievement takes a long time.

Level 3 is insanely easy due to a glitch that allows you to jump over the walls. However, assuming you don't want to cheat, the rest of the levels will just have to be beaten the old fashioned way: thru sweat, tears, and profanity.

Have fun!

  • The Binding of Isaac was not made by Team Meat, only the artist of the duo (Edmund) was involved with Isaac.
