I fail to see how it's like Super Meat Boy, apart from the fact it's a 2D platformer, which isn't exactly the least-used genre of gaming...
-Not nearly as fast-paced
-Seems to be only one character available
-Looks very closed in (as in walls everywhere, kind of killing any form of exploration)
I could go on, but I won't. But seriously, it looks and seems NOTHING like Super Meat Boy apart from being a platformer.
Plus, Team Meat detest the iPhone if you look at their blog somewhere, there's a video of one of them on stage saying how it's just a "console" for mostly shovelware games.
It's compared to SMB because of the way the character controls, wall slides and jumps. It's very similar to SMB, except the character also has a double jump. So more like Ogmo I guess.
Also, I gotta say, Team Meat have a really shallow view of the iOS. It's like saying the Wii is crap because of all the shovelware on it. Yeah, it's full of shovelware, but there's still some standout titles.
If Team Meat were complaining that platformers don't work on a touch screen, I'd heartily agree.
