Buy the Super Meat Boy Tiger Handheld Game, support irony

1:00 PM on 04.04.2010 // Anthony Burch

Man rants about the App Store, complaining that iPhone versions of games like Street Fighter IV are just soulless brand-whoring like the old Tiger LCD games we played as kids.

Company takes offense at Man's rant, removes his ridiculously expensive game (so priced to prove the inanity of the App Store and its users) from its application service.

Man retaliates by making a Tiger LCD version of the game he is currently working on, and releasing it on the same App Store that spurned him.

Irony collapses into irony. The snake eats its own tail. Super Meat Boy becomes one with the universe.

The Super Meat Boy Tiger handheld app is pretty awful gameplay-wise, but that's kind of the point; for only 99 cents, you, too, can own the most mechanically uninteresting, comically inspired game on the entire App Store. At the very minimum, buying the app will still support Super Meat Boy's production.

Hit the jump for Team Meat's official press release.

Hey,

Remember way back in the day when you loved a game so much that you
would buy ANYTHING that had to do with it? Remember Easter, when you
had to go to your Great Aunts house to celebrate with the family, and
you knew you would be bored in the car and the only thing you could
bring was a crappy handheld version of some game you loved (for me it
was Megaman 2) and you had no choice but to play it in the car and at
her house because she was born in like the 1890's and didn't even have
a VCR? Those were great days...and now, we at Team Meat, are giving
you the ability to do that ALL OVER AGAIN ON YOUR IPHONE, IPOD AND
EXPENSIVE GIANT IPOD (IPAD).

Super Meat Boy Handheld is all the branding of Super Meat Boy, without
the actual gameplay or art from Super Meat Boy...and all for ONLY A
DOLLAR. Enjoy two distinct game modes. In Game A, you have to race and
wall jump past saws to save your lady love Bandage Girl!!! In Game B,
you have to race past falling needles to save your lady love, Bandage
Girl!!! Super Meat Boy Handheld also features a mute button, and a
button that when pressed shows you a high score (not your high score,
just the highest score you can get).

Super Meat Boy Handheld is available on the iTunes AppStore for only
$0.99 (THAT'S NOT NINETY NINE DOLLARS YOU SILLY PEOPLE). Pick it up
today, brag to your friends, and support Super Meat Boy!!

Love,

Team Meat

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d

Trying to play through Undertale's Genocide Route. After forcing myself to kill the Greater Dog, I'm really not sure if I'm emotionally capable of handling this game anymore...

"I would buy [game] if I had a Wii U." THEN WHY DON'T YOU!? "I don't want to." So you want to play [game] but you're not willing to buy hardware to play it? "Yes." Guess you don't really want to play [game]. "No, Nintendo should make games for Xbox." ಠ_

Finally getting around to cataloging all the intergalactic-level augments I want to use for post-game Tyrant killing in XCX. The grind feels more substantial than Monster Hunter but then again there are no four-story-high monsters in MH.
