On April 3rd, 2010, Team Meat released Super Meat Boy: HANDHELD!, an iOS game made as an April Fools joke in response to the iOS AppStore removing Team Meat member Tommy Refenes' game Zits And Giggles after he compared Apple App Store games to the infamous Tiger Handheld LED games of the 1980s and 1990s.[1]

Design[edit | edit source]

The game renders Super Meat Boy as an LED game, with a Tiger Handheld-esque layout and two game modes. In-game mode 1, or A, had you race and jump past saws to rescue Bandage Girl. Game mode 2 or B had you doing the same thing, but with needles instead of saws. There is a mute button to mute the audio and a high score button for high scores.[2]

Availability[edit | edit source]

The game couldn't be found anywhere online, and no video footage existed. Only two images of the game were available online, as well as the app icon for it. Team Meat themselves confirmed that they didn't have the original .ipa file for the game, so it was highly unlikely that it would have ever been found.

On March 11th, 2022 after contacting numerous people, someone still had the game on their spare Macbook Pro. The person who forwarded this game wishes to remain anonymous. It was uploaded to the Internet Archive shortly after.
