Meatball is a hardcore runner-platformer inspired by the toughness and aesthetics of 80s and 90s NES games and the accessibility of today’s mobile hits. Sporting a retro pixel-art-look complete with chiptune soundtrack, only the most dedicated players have the skills to finish the game while gathering all coins. The challenge is definitely there but everyone - regardless of skill level - is able to enjoy the rock-solid and rewarding gameplay! Go! Go!

A bit of misplaced voodoo magic and a twist of fate causes a meatball come back to life! There is but one problem - everyone wants to eat him! Running for his life meatball has no time to dodge all obstacles in his way. You have to help him survive! Guide Meatball back to safety by jumping, ducking and rolling around in this cute and challenging retro runner-platformer game available on iOS and Android.

History

Go! Go! Meatball started as Antti's personal hobby project back in ancient times of 2011. Originally it was called Super Meatball and was meant to be a puzzle platformer that drew its inspiration from Kirby Canvas Curse. After a few years of on-off development - releasing other games and constantly changing the game's design - Antti realized the game is too big for him to handle alone and decided to get some help. Antti had been designing games with Ville since high school so the choice was easy. Together they salvaged what was left of the original prototype to make a simple mobile game with procedurally generated levels. Like always, designs escalated and it became a bigger, more traditional platformer and runner game with custom designed levels in the form of Go! Go! Meatball.
