Retrograde #8: Super Meat Boy

54 mins - Published Wed, Sep 5, 2012 by Anthony Hobday, Jack Marshall, James MacFadyen and Lysanne Fisher

Welcome to episode eight of Retrograde! This week we continue the platforming theme with Super Meat Boy.

James McFadyen rejoins us this week with his choice of Super Meat Boy chosen, I think, to antagonize myself, Lysanne Fisher, and Anthony Hobday with its fiendishly difficult game-play.

So fire up the barbecue, get some steak on, and loosen your belt buttons with the Retrograde team and Super Meat Boy.


Retrograde is a fortnightly retro gaming show launched on the CSICON network in May 2012. Each episode focuses on one game from yesteryear chosen by one of our Retrograde team, who put the game under scrutiny as well as talk about the history and legacy of the game and its overall impact on the gaming world. Join your hosts as they suit up and brave the world of sprites and chip tunes.
