    Great and challenging platformer

    This game was a nice surprise to me, as I didn't have high expectations for it. I'm close to finishing it and it's an incredibly fun game that every Super Meatboy fan would definitely appreciate. The game is incredibly challenging but respects your time with small screen-based puzzles. The controls for this one were really well thought out: it controls nicely with the dpad as expected, but what is surprising is the variety of options that also allow you to play with the analog stick with zero issues. Highly recommended for fans of the genre, but it would probably be too frustrating to more casual folks.

    Nice game and free bonus if you get the “Launch Edition!” Though very challenging with its precise and perfect-timing jumps, each level seems like gold when you successfully pass it while collecting the optional but important ‘tumors’ floating in hard-to-reach places. Great game to kill and pass time if you’re commuting around the city: train or bus.

    Top notch twitch platforming

    If you love the frustrating twitch-platforming genre, you'll love The End is Nigh. It plays in a similar style to Super Meat Boy, meaning you have to have precise button presses to make it through every level. I'm at about 41% so far, and am obsessed. There's a surprising amount of things to find in such a simple premise, and I look forward to replaying levels looking for hidden passages. If you love Super Meat Boy or any other Nicalis releases, you'll love The End is Nigh.

    A difficult game that keeps on giving

    The End is Nigh is quite the hard game. Mastering each level is difficult but rewarding. Collectibles span across nearly every level. Pulling off a janky jump only to succeed in getting that one collectible you missed during your first run feels wonderful. If you like subjecting yourself to games where you will die over and over to progress, this one is for you.

    Dark and Hilarious Platformer

    Reminds me a lot of Super Meat Boy, but with a few additional elements, like grabbing old game carts and the tumors. I LOVE the dark yet very humorous take on the apocalypse. It's hard as can be, but can be mastered as imply as other games like it. The visuals are gorgeous as well, and the levels flow very well together.

    Fun but difficult

    If you’ve ever played Super Meat Boy, this won’t feel too much different. The humor in it makes the story better than SMB, but so far I do prefer the variety in SMB over TEIN. But overall it’s a great game with a lot of challenge. From the same person as SMB, so if you enjoy that at all, get this.

    A solid platformer with a good pace

    End is Nigh feels like the natural progression from Meat Boy's fast paced, high octane platforming. This game has a lot of its DNA, but slightly more methodical and at a slightly slower pace. The music and visuals are great, the manual is awesome and the launch bonus is a neat little thing.

    Challenging but worth the pricepoint

    If you can put up with the brutal difficulty this is a great game at the current price point. The publisher has consistently been putting out some great games for the Nintendo Switch and I recommend this one if you liked Super Meat Boy. Another one worth checking out is Ittle Dew 2.
