    Hello there!  I'm Robert, and this is my guide for Super Meat Boy, currently 
    available on Steam and Xbox 360.  This guide is for the Steam version, though 
    I'm not 100% sure of the differences in the two games, aside from what 
    characters are unlockable.  SMB is my personal Game of the Year for 2010, and 
    I've decided to write this guide for the game not only to help people (mostly 
    with Bandage/Warp Zone locations), but to leave my own mark on the game.  
    Basically, it's my way of thanking the developer for making such a kick-ass 
    platformer.  I have the whole light world covered, though considering how much 
    of a pain in the ass the Dark World is, I'm not sure a guide will help you.
    
    Next up: The characters!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Character List:
    
    Meat Boy:
    -Meat Boy
    
    Meat Boy is a boy made entirely out of Meat.  He's in the title, so naturally 
    he's the main character.  Meat Boy is super fast, super slippery, and have 
    awesome jumps.  He's easily the most mobile character in the game, and more 
    importantly, the levels were designed to be played by him.  In this guide I'm 
    assuming you're using Meat Boy throughout the main story, so any tactics I 
    give will be geared towards him.  If there's a Bandage Meat Boy can't quite 
    get, I'll suggest an alternate character.
    
    Tofu Boy:
    -Super Tofu Boy
    
    On the character select screen, if you type "petaphile", you'll hear the 
    announcer yell "PUSH THE BUTTON!"  Then when you select Meat Boy, you'll 
    unlock his PETA-inspired counterpart, Tofu Boy!  And...Tofu Boy is total crap.  
    He can't run, and he can barely jump.  Vegetarians are a bunch of wimps, 
    aren't they?  Also you get an achievement for it.
    
    Commander Video (1-12 Warp Zone):
    -Bit.Trip.Runner
    
    Bit.Trip.Runner's a great indie game for WiiWare and Steam, I would highly 
    recommend you download it.  Anyway, CV is a lot slower and heavier than Meat 
    Boy, but his unique ability is to float in the air by holding the jump button.  
    Still, aside from a few areas in the game, CV isn't that great.
    
    Jill (2-8 Warp Zone):
    -Mighty Jill-Off
    
    Haven't played Mighty Jill-Off, so I dunno about her character, but her 
    specialty is to slowly descend in the air by repeatedly mashing the space bar.  
    A little floaty, but she's alright.
    
    Ogmo (3-16 Warp Zone):
    -Jumper
    
    When I first saw this guy I thought he was just bizarro Meat Boy.  Considering 
    the game labels him a "rip-off", that's not so far-fetched.  Ogmo's great 
    because he has a small second jump.  Those two jumps make him amazing for 
    getting through some levels, but his standard jump is too wimpy compared to 
    Meat Boy.  Ogmo's got his uses.
    
    Flywrench (4-18 Warp Zone):
    -Flywrench
    
    Haven't played Flywrench, but this dude handles so weirdly.  He's got several 
    tiny jumps, and the basically just slides up walls when you're wall jumping.  
    My friends like him, but I'm not a fan.
    
    The Kid (5-7 Warp Zone):
    -I Wanna Be The Guy
    
    As someone who's actually beaten I Wanna Be The Guy, I can vouch for The Kid's 
    awesomeness.  Super Meat Boy is nothing compared to that game.  Though to be 
    fair, SMB is also a much better game than IWBTG.  The Kid's main ability is his 
    double jump, which is far superior to Ogmo's.  The Kid's still a little slow 
    compared to Meat Boy, but he's the best choice for when you're going for 100% 
    completion.
    
    Headcrab (Bandage x10):
    -Half-Life
    
    Yeah yeah, we all know about Headcrabs.  In SMB, they'll stick to walls if you 
    hold down the run button.
    
    Josef (Bandage x30):
    -Machinarium
    
    Played a bit of Machinarium, not really my thing.  Josef can float a bit with 
    his second jump, but I like other characters more.
    
    8-Bit Meat Boy (Bandage X40):
    -Super Meat Boy
    
    Just a retro recoloring of Meat Boy.  He handles exactly the same.
    
    Naija (Bandage x50):
    -Aquaria
    
    Haven't actually used her yet.
    
    Runman (Bandage x70):
    
    I'm not even sure what game this guy is from.
    
    Captain Viridian (Bandage x90):
    -VVVVVV
    
    With a push of a button, Captain Viridian can shift gravity!  Uhh...beware of 
    using this guy on stages without a ceiling.
    
    Steve (Bandage x100):
    -Minecraft
    
    I'm not a huge fan of sandbox-style games, so Minecraft's not my thing.  But 
    Steve is broken since he can put down blocks wherever he wants.  Still, that's 
    because he's the last character you'll unlock, so naturally he's overpowered, 
    since you can't use him to get anything else.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Chapter 1: The Forest (Light World)
    
    This chapter is the first world of Super Meat Boy, and it will serve as an 
    introduction of things to come.  You better master this skills while the game 
    is still easy, because you'll need them later!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -1: |> -_- |>
    
    And welcome to the first glitch world!  You can only access this world by 
    accident.  Occasionally, Bandage Girl will be all weird and glitchy, and if 
    you rescue her in such a state, you'll find the glitch worlds.  They're pretty 
    hard, and all you get for completing them are achievements.  Still, fun.
    
    For this one, head right and you'll see that you need to jump up while dodging 
    falling buzzsaws.  Though honestly, you can hold run and towards the wall when 
    jumping, and you'll avoid the spikes on the walls with ease.  Also makes 
    getting by the buzzsaws easy.
    
    Part two's the tricky one.  You have to jump out into the open, hit the wall, 
    jump OVER the spikes on top of the wall onto the other side, then wall jump 
    even further.  This is really tricky.  Once you've passed that obstacle, the 
    last one is easy.  Find an opening, jump in, and rhythmically jump up the 
    corridor in time with the buzzsaws.  Victory!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-1: Hello World
    A-rank: 3 seconds
    
    This level is so easy, you have to go out of your way to die.  Run and jump to 
    the right, then jump onto the platform to reach Bandage Girl.  Or wall jump up 
    the left wall if you're impatient.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-2: Upward
    A-rank: 5 seconds
    
    Another easy level, this time forcing you to learn the wall jump.  Simply go 
    to the right, wall jump up, and reach Bandage Girl.  Easy.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-3: The Gap
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    Take your pick of the run button (either X or right trigger) and just hop 
    across the gap!  It's that simple!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-4: Nutshell (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    This is the first level that you literally cannot die in.  The buzzsaws you 
    see can't hurt you.  Just follow the pathway all the way up to Bandage Girl.
    
    BANDAGE: As you climb up, you'll see it at the bottom of the rightmost column.  
    No risk at all; just grab it and go.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-5: Holy Mountain (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 11 seconds
    
    Another place to practice your wall jumping on a single wall.  Follow the path 
    to Bandage Girl on the upper right.
    
    WARP ZONE: Your first Warp Zone!  After 15 seconds it will disappear, so get 
    to it quickly.  It's in the "hut" on the left side of the mountain as you 
    climb up.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-5 Warp Zone: [Sky Pup] (BANDAGE X2)
    Character: Meat Boy
    
    As you can see, warp zones are a bit different from regular levels.  You can 
    only use the designated character, and you have to complete three levels in a 
    row, with only three tries allowed per level.
    
    1-1: Drop onto the platform to your right, then slide down the left wall to a 
    safe spot.  Leap over the buzzsaws, then wall jump up to Bandage Girl.
    BANDAGE: This one can be tricky for a beginner.  Drop off to the left and ride 
    the right wall down to a spot to stand on.  The bandage is on a single 
    platform floating to the left.
    
    1-2: Fall down to your left, then wall jump across the gap to your right, or 
    land on the platform in the middle first.  Once you're on the right, just wall 
    jump up to Bandage Girl.
    BANDAGE: Reach the platform in the middle, then jump straight up, walljumping 
    up the narrow corridor to the bandage.  Drop back down and continue on.
    
    1-3: Surprisingly hard level for something so early. Slide down either the 
    left or right wall, then jump onto the platform.  The lower section of the 
    platform has buzzsaws flying towards you, so watch out.  Jump to the middle 
    platform, then up into the cave.  Don't stand on the sides, because of 
    buzzsaws.  Watch their timing, then wall jump into the upper section.  The 
    platforms up there aren't safe to stand on, so again, look out for buzzsaws.  
    Study their pattern and time your jumps so you reach Bandage Girl in the 
    middle.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-6: Bladecatcher
    A-rank: 7 seconds
    
    Now would be a good time to master your jumping.  Make your way up the 
    hallways, dodging each buzzsaw you see.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-7: Diverge (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 5 seconds
    
    You can go forward, up and down through the hallways to reach Bandage Girl, 
    but if you want the A-rank, you'll need to wall jump your way on the left 
    side, over the buzzsaw.
    
    BANDAGE: On the 360 this level is actually glitched; for whatever reason, the 
    Bandage will stay there after you grab it.  You can get it multiple times to 
    rank up your bandage count, but it could lead to file corruption and your game 
    erasing itself, so tread lightly.  Grabbing it once should be fine; it's 
    hovering over the buzzsaw on the corner of the mountain.  I'm pretty sure this 
    isn't the case on the Steam version, but I'm leaving this notice here just to 
    be safe.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-8: The Bit
    A-rank: 4.5 seconds
    
    A bit intimidating, but not difficult.  Leap to the center platform, climb 
    over it and jump to the right.  Done.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-9: Safety Third (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 8 seconds
    
    First level to feature breakable blocks; when you touch them, they will 
    disappear after one second, so move fast.  You don't have time to mess around, 
    since the walls will disintegrate as you climb them.  Make your way up to 
    Bandage Girl.
    
    BANDAGE: You'll see it on the second floor behind a breakable wall and under 
    some buzzsaws.  You'll have to jump onto the section of wall next to it to 
    break the wall, then collect the bandage.  Or you can come back when you have 
    a character better suited for it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-10: The Levee
    A-rank: 7.5 seconds
    
    An easy level.  Jump and slide on the breakable walls, then jump off.  Now you 
    have a pathway through!  Do this twice and you're done.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-11: Fired (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 8 seconds
    
    Lots of breakable walls here, and a fiery death if you fall.  Carefully jump 
    from wall to wall to reach Bandage Girl in the top right.
    
    BANDAGE: The bandage here is actually fairly difficult to reach.  I recommend 
    that on the third wall you reach, instead of jumping to the fourth on the 
    right, jump to the ledge on your left.  Then, jump OVER the wall to the right, 
    stick to it, then wall jump to reach the bandage.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-12: Revolve (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 7 seconds
    
    Slide down the wall on your left, jump to the center platform, climb up, and 
    get to Bandage Girl.  Easy.
    
    WARP ZONE: Disappears after 16 seconds.  If you can reach Bandage Girl, you 
    can reach this; just jump over her.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-12 Warp Zone: The Commander!
    
    It's Commander Video, from Bit.Trip.Runner for the Wii!  He's a lot slower and 
    heavier than Meat Boy, but he has the ability to hover for a limited time by 
    holding the jump button.  Try it out!
    
    1-1: Run to the right, run to the left, dodging the shots.  Not hard.
    
    1-2: Use your hover to pass through the flashing ceiling and floor.  Keep in 
    mind you can activate the hover at any point at your jump; not just at the 
    apex.  You will have to jump off the ledge to your right to activate it, 
    though; merely falling off results in death.
    
    1-3: Juuuump, juuuump, juuuump, juuuump
    
    By beating this warp zone, you'll unlock Commander Video for use in normal 
    levels.  Personally, I find Meat Boy a lot easier to use, as the levels are 
    designed for him.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-13: Tommy's Cabin (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 7 seconds
    
    A pretty straightforward level, with straightforward traps.  Climb up, dodge 
    buzzsaws, etc.
    
    BANDAGE: Behind the first buzzsaw.  Just grab it quick before the buzzsaw 
    comes back to hit you.  You can't hide in the alcove behind it, so don't try.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-14: Blood Mountain
    A-rank: 8 seconds
    
    Good level to get the hang of wall jumping.  After climbing to the top, you'll 
    have to drop down into the cave, so watch your feet so you don't hit the saw.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-15: Cactus Jumper
    A-rank: 10 seconds
    
    This level features saws shot across the floor at you.  Watch where you step; 
    there are a few safe spots elevated above the saws, so make use of them if you 
    aren't skilled.  The third floor also has saws on the ceiling; watch the 
    patterns, and proceed.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-16: Sidewinder
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    This time the saws are being shot from the ceiling.  Again, watch them 
    carefully, make use of cover, and jump or fall when you think it's safe.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-17: Morningstar
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    Rotating saws now!  First one doesn't have much range, but still be careful.  
    Wall jump up the left wall, then watch the large rotating saw, and jump when 
    it's safe.  Though you'll save some time if you jump up the right wall, but 
    then you have a ledge to worry about.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-18: Altamont (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    Woah, lots of rotating saws here!  The saws underneath can't reach you on the 
    top row, so keep that in mind as you hop across.
    
    BANDAGE: This one's tricky.  It's to the right of the bottom right saw 
    platform, and not only do you have to collect it, but also get back to safety.  
    I managed to get it by wall jumping off the platform next to it, collecting 
    the bandage and hitting the right wall, where I wall jumped up.  Careful!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-19: Intermission (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 20 seconds
    
    A real obstacle course here, and it uses every trick thrown at you so far: 
    wall jumps, rotating saws, shooting saws, requiring careful jumping and 
    timing, analyzing of patterns, and just plain skill.  The level is actually 
    pretty straightforward, so good luck.
    
    WARP ZONE: About halfway through the level, you'll see it at the top of the 
    screen.  Wall jump up the hall to the left of it, and you'll find a partially 
    obscured pathway straight to it.  Again, get there in less than 16 seconds.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-19 Warp Zone: [Hand Held Hack] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    Black and white warp zone this time!  Hope you like limited colors...
    
    1-1: Not too complicated.  Watch where the saws go, and jump when able.
    
    1-2: If you're reading this, you've already lost.  As soon as the level 
    starts, you have to make your way through the path as fast as possible, before 
    the floor below you is destroyed by saws being shot out.  Quickly, go!
    BANDAGE: It's right below where you drop onto the disintegrating platform, but 
    if you're too slow it'll be impossible to get.  Just be quick.
    
    1-3: A little more mobility here, but you're gonna have to be careful.  Go 
    ahead and slide on the disintegrated wall; you'll land on the platform with no 
    problems.  You have limited jumping room on floor two, so carefully time when 
    the saw will pass.  On the top, there's a space to stand in between each saw 
    path.  Or you can just jump through all of it when the time is right.  Your 
    choice.
    BANDAGE: It's hard to see thanks to the color scheme, but it's floating in the 
    middle of the vertical saws.  Grab it and get out.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-20: The Test (BANDAGE)
    A-rank:
    
    Wall jump past the vertical saw on your left, careful to avoid the big saws.  
    Disintegrating pillar in the middle of the next section, so keep jumping and 
    make sure not to run out of places to stand.  For the last part, you can 
    quickly run and destroy the floors, or just time your jumps and proceed when 
    able.  Though to reach Bandage Girl, you'll have to run.
    
    BANDAGE:  It's in the very top left.  Not hard to get at all, just watch for 
    the saw that comes out next to it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss: Lil Slugger
    
    Finally, the first boss fight!  Though, it's not so much a fight as it is "run 
    like hell".  If the boss touches you, you die, so run, run, run.  Dodge the 
    saws, don't get caught on the disintegrating wall, make sure the rotating saws 
    don't take you by surprise, and try not to wonder why the squirrels don't die 
    when they touch the saw blades.  Overall though, it's nothing you haven't seen 
    before; just a test of all your skills at once.  You can do it.  When you 
    reach the top right, jump into the alcove and watch the boss kill itself.  
    Chapter Complete!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Chapter 1: The Forest (Dark World)
    
    Since I'm too lazy to finish this guide, here's a couple of dark world 
    bandages.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-3X: Bzzzzz (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 10 seconds
    
    Just do a couple of wall jumps and you're fine.
    
    BANDAGE: Floating above the middle saw.  Very easy to get.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1-10X: Walls (BANDAGE)
    
    Destroy the walls carefully, and jump through when able.
    
    BANDAGE: At the very top of the level.  You'll have to destroy the upper parts 
    of the wall to jump to it.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Chapter 2: The Hospital (Light World)
    
    World 2 time!  Hopefully you got all the practice you could out of the first 
    chapter, because the game's no longer going to play nice.  Still a few things 
    to teach you, but you better be a Meat Boy master to proceed.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-1: Biohazard
    A-rank: 8 seconds
    
    Spikes!  Run and jump over them or you die.  When you get to the huge hill of 
    spikes, wall jump over it, then slide down the wall on the right side of it 
    (that is, the wall opposite Bandage Girl).  There's a little spot to land.  
    Jump over to her.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-2: One Down (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 10.5 seconds
    
    You're gonna be going down a lot.  Jump through the opening, slide down the 
    wall, jump down the next, slide, jump, win level.
    
    BANDAGE: Instead of jumping through the second opening, fall to the right of 
    it, then quickly get on the right wall and jump a bit to halt your momentum.  
    Otherwise you'll fall into another bed of spikes.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-3: Memories
    A-rank: 14 seconds
    
    Master the short hop, NOW.  The ceiling will kill you, and there are saw 
    blades flying around everywhere.  If you can't master quickly tapping the jump 
    button, you won't make it through here.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-4: Blew
    A-rank: 9.5 seconds
    
    First level with blowing fans.  These will kill you if you touch them, but 
    you'll need to jump into the air to be blown high.  However, you can't just 
    jump straight in and be okay.  If you fall into the wind, your momentum will 
    just lead you to death.  You'll have to have at least a little bit of upward 
    momentum in order to fly up.  As long as you're using Meat Boy, this level 
    will be fine.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-5: Big Empty (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 16 seconds
    
    Woah, big room here.  Climb up the left wall, and use the big blowing fan to 
    give you lift into the upper left part of the room.  Once there, just jump and 
    move through the fans as fast as possible; stay in one too long, and the lift 
    will lead you to your death.
    
    BANDAGE: This one's a tricky one.  The bandage is located in the bottom right 
    corner of the screen, with a fan blowing into it.  Getting down there isn't so 
    hard, but actually grabbing the bandage without dying is the tricky part.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-6: The Grain
    A-rank: 15 seconds
    
    Fans are annoying here.  Run to the right as fast as you can, and you'll be 
    able to drop into the pit.  The next one isn't so nice; you'll have to jump 
    and use aerial momentum in order to land in the hole, but you might overshoot 
    and hit the fan instead.  After that run to the left, hopping over the spikes, 
    then jump across the platforms to the two overlapping fans; manipulate your 
    momentum so you fly up to reach Bandage Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-7: Hush
    A-rank: 14 seconds
    
    Blob monsters!  You can't defeat the enemies, so just try your best to dodge 
    them.  This level is a bit annoying in that there's not a direct path to 
    follow, so lemme see if I can help you.  Wall jump on the right, then travel 
    to the left.  Move back to the right, and take note of the lava pits; they can 
    be hard to see.  Once you see Bandage Girl, it's just a matter of more wall 
    jumps up to her for success.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-8: The Sabbath (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 25 seconds
    
    Ooh, all black.  Spooky.  Anyway, wall jumps, sliding, blob monsters.  If a 
    surface isn't smooth, it's death, so watch out.  In narrow pathways, be 
    patient and wait for the blobs to move out before continuing.  Towards the 
    end, one column has spikes for a floor, so be careful not to jump on it, as 
    tempting as it is.  When you see Bandage Girl, be patient, make sure your 
    jumping is right on the platforms, and you'll be successful.
    
    WARP ZONE: When you squeeze through the second narrow passage, rather than 
    flying through the gap to your right, wall jump up to the top right corner; 
    you'll access the warp zone to its left.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-8 Warp Zone: The Bootlicker! (JILL)
    
    This "Jill" gal sure is weird.  When using her, tap Jump repeatedly to slow 
    your descent.
    
    1-1: Jump and float to the right, then to the left.  Wall jump up to get to 
    Bandage Girl.
    
    1-2: Careful with your jumps here.  The first floor is easy enough, but the 
    second is constant death.  Not much I can do to help other than to say avoid 
    the spikes.  Jill's a lot more sensitive than Meat Boy, so don't overshoot.
    
    1-3: Much easier than level 2.  Float through, wall jump, float through, no 
    problem.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-9: Blood Swamp
    A-rank: 8 seconds
    
    Oh, master of the wall jump.  This level's short, but it can be annoying.  Be 
    patient with the monsters, jump when able, and you'll get to Bandage Girl 
    quickly.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-10: Johnny's Cage (BANDAGE)
    A-rank:
    
    You're gonna have to go down, around, grab the key, and come back, with the 
    walls covered in spikes and the fans altering your momentum.  You'll need to 
    use the fans to your advantage; just be careful not to fall into them too 
    quickly, or it will overpower the wind.  A little tricky, but not too hard.
    
    BANDAGE: This one's annoying.  It's right by the falling garbage to the left, 
    and there's no safe place to stand near it.  You're going to need to use the 
    wind from the fan to reach it, but at the same time you can't fall too fast 
    once you've grabbed it or your dead.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-11: Ghost Key
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    Grab the key, then RUN.  The key unlocks the wall that you're going to have to 
    jump on to proceed, then you'll have to land and wait for the wall to 
    disappear before you can reach Bandage Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-12: Above (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 11 seconds
    
    Dark stage, great.  Jump to the further right platform, grab the key, then 
    head back left.  As the ceiling unlocks, saws will start coming at you, so 
    make sure to dodge them.  Bandage Girl's on the far left, now unhindered by a 
    locked cage.
    
    WARP ZONE: Oh, this one's annoying.  After you grab the key, head back to the 
    central platform, above the locked warp zone.  To your left a key will fall; 
    if you don't grab it, you'll have to start the stage over again.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-12 Warp Zone: [Castle Crushers] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: Wall jumps.  Yawn.
    BANDAGE: What?  There's no bandage in this stage!  Eh?  It's above the last 
    saw blade, and you'll collect it normally while passing through the level?  
    Fine, whatever.
    
    1-2: Collapsing floor.  Your best bet is to just run the length of each floor, 
    destroying all of it in the process, as that'll be the easiest way to gain the 
    momentum to make it through.
    BANDAGE: Hovering to the left of the second platform from the top.  If you're 
    using my strategy, you better not mess up, because you'll just fall and die.  
    It might help to exclusively climb the left side of the pyramid, as then 
    you'll have the right side once you've grabbed the bandage.
    
    1-3: Speed is your friend here.  Watch the pattern of the saws, then run 
    through as quick as possible, or else you'll die.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-13: Ulcer Pop (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 10 seconds
    
    Lots of jumping here, avoid the enemies and the lava.  Not too complicated.
    
    BANDAGE: There's a key behind Bandage Girl.  Once you grab it, you'll have to 
    travel all the way back down to the bottom to get the bandage, then go all the 
    way back up.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-14: Aunt Flo
    A-rank: 16 seconds
    
    Lots of fans in here; be sure to get enough lift from each fan or else you 
    won't make it to the next.  Grab the key all the way to the right, then get 
    the key in the middle platform, then back to Bandage Girl on the left.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-15: Gallbladder (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 14 seconds
    
    Inside the path or outside it, it doesn't matter.  Just press on and avoid the 
    enemies.  When you're heading in the central passageway, make sure the spot 
    below you is clear of enemies, and you'll be able to drop right onto Bandage 
    Girl.
    
    WARP ZONE: It's in the building above you as you travel up; the entrance is on 
    the left side of the building.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-15 Warp Zone: [The Blood Shed] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: Climb the interior of the building and grab the key.  Afterwards, wall 
    jump your way up the right side.  Bandage Girl's at the top.  Watch out for 
    all the blobs.
    BANDAGE: When you reach Bandage Girl, go back down the left side of the 
    building instead; the bandage is at the bottom.
    
    1-2: Straightforward, but can be annoying.  The small platforms are difficult 
    to land on and difficult to wall jump off of.  Blob monsters too.  Just keep 
    at it.
    
    1-3: A tower to climb, and ledges to jump off of.  And they're small, too.  
    Blob monsters.  Not much to say, other than "good luck".
    BANDAGE: To the right, on the lowest floating platform.  I recommend you wall 
    jump off the platform to get it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-16: Synj (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 15 seconds
    
    Walk to the right and get killed by a laser.  Whoops!  These lasers are timed; 
    spend as little time in their path as possible.  Navigate the platforms 
    floating over the syringes, then head to the right to the horizontal laser.  
    When you have an opening, run.  If you're fast enough you can get to Bandage 
    Girl, but take a break and hide in the alcove if you want.
    
    BANDAGE: Heck, you can bypass the first two lasers and just wall jump up to 
    the left from where you start!  It's in the upper left part of the screen, on 
    a platform above all the debris.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-17: Worm Food
    A-rank: 14 seconds
    
    Wall jump your way up the narrow passage when there isn't a laser beam of 
    death running through it.  After that, carefuly timed wall jumps will get you 
    through the alternating lasers.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-18: Destructoid (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 16.5 seconds
    
    Go up and around, avoiding the lasers around you, and grab the key on the far 
    end.  Quickly make it back to the start, where Bandage Girl will be waiting 
    for you when the key frees her.
    
    BANDAGE:  Ugh, this one is a pain.  As usual, grab the key and make it back to 
    the start, but when everything opens, wait.  There will be just a moment where 
    the lasers deactivate; jump through the one to your right and you'll find a 
    passage to the middle area with the buzzsaw.  The bandage is hovering over it.  
    Grab it, go back to the entrance, and wait for the lasers to deactivate again.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-19: Six Feet
    A-rank: 14 seconds
    
    Yep, more lasers.  Wall jump to the top, grab the key, then head back down, 
    where you have ANOTHER laser to work with.  Slide down the chamber, stopping 
    to dodge the laser in the meantime.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2-20: Day Breaker (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 24 seconds
    
    This level's a bit of a maze; carefully work your way through to the top, or 
    you can just wall jump up the left side, cheater.  When you reach the upward-
    blowing fan, try to jump into it with as much upward momentum as possible; 
    you'll need it to reach Bandage Girl.
    
    BANDAGE: Past the fan, drop down into another area and head left.  You'll need 
    to do some careful jumping over syringes and a baddie to reach the bandage.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss: C.H.A.D.
    
    Big scary monster!  Rising lava!  Chad's not an easy fight, and it will take a 
    fair amount of pattern recognition to beat him.  Naturally, first thing you do 
    is grab the key; watch for his position in the lava, because he might jump up 
    above the key and kill you.  Watch his position; he will jump and cover a 
    large portion of the screen.  If he's on the side he'll jump towards one of 
    the sides, and if he's in the middle he'll jump straight up.  Once that's done 
    with the screen will start rising; use the wall to your left to advance.
    
    There's another key in the bottom right when the screen stops scrolling.  
    Navigate the middle path, and make sure Chad doesn't rush you while you're 
    vulnerable at the bottom.  Keep climbing upwards, and you'll see another key 
    on the right.  Climb over the middle platform, grab it, then go back to the 
    left side and grab that key. Once you get it, you're good!  The light will 
    shine in, and C.H.A.D. will be defeated!

    Chapter 3: The Salt Factory (Light World)
    
    Hopefully your Super Meat Boy skills are up to par, because it's still getting 
    harder.  Salt kills you, by the way.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-1: Pit Stop (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 9.5 seconds
    
    Run to the right, jump over the big pile of salt, then destroy the wall and 
    reach your love.
    
    BANDAGE: Climb up on top of the building, stand directly under the buzzsaws 
    (next to the salt), and grab the bandage.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-2: The Salt Lick (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 8.3 seconds
    
    SO MUCH SALT.  Just climb, climb, climb, taking note of which surfaces will 
    and won't kill you.  When you reach the top you're in the clear.
    
    BANDAGE:  Hey, let's go DOWN at the start!  Woo!  It's just a little extra of 
    the level, though the jumps to get back up are tricky as hell.  Have fun.  
    Maybe a different character could help with the vertical lift...
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-3: Push
    A-rank: 16 seconds
    
    Not too hard, just keep in mind that the floor is a conveyor belt, so whenever 
    you're on it, you'll be moving to the right.  Just avoid the salt, run to the 
    right, grab the key, and run all the way to the left to finish.  More annoying 
    than hard.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-4: Transmissions
    A-rank: 12 seconds
    
    Okay, THIS level is annoying.  Conveyor belts and buzzsaws will be working 
    against you the whole time.  Keep track of your footing and the timing of the 
    buzzsaws, and make your way through the stage in a clockwise direction.  Each 
    conveyor belt will pull you in the direction of the buzzsaws, with the 
    exception of the top floor, which will dump you in a pile of salt.
    
    BANDAGE: It's just hovering in the middle of the stage, below the conveyor 
    belts in the middle.  Yeah, just hovering there.  You can't jump to it or 
    anything.  My advice?  Skip it for now, and wait until you get a character 
    with more air mobility (like The Kid).
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-5: Uptown (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 12.2 seconds
    
    Vertical conveyor belts are pretty annoying.  In order to get the full lift, 
    you have to touch it at the bottom, at which point it will shoot you up.  
    Follow each conveyor belt up, careful to latch onto it near the bottom.  May 
    be annoying to speedrun.
    
    WARP ZONE: This one's ridiculous.  At the very start, watch the left side of 
    the level.  A key will fall lightning fast.  If you can grab it, it opens a 
    lock to the right of the warp zone in the building on the ground level.  Not 
    that hard, just kind of stupid.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-5 Warp Zone: [Cartridge Dump] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: Woah, retro!  Just jump, jump, jump.  Watch where you land.
    BANDAGE: Ugh.  Wall jump off of one of the VERY SMALL platforms to reach it.  
    May be a pain in the ass.  May take a ton of tries.
    
    1-2: Ugh, another pain.  At least there's no bandage in this one.  Carefully 
    jump onto platform #2, then hold run and wall jump off the side onto the next 
    one.  You should safely hit the wall, where you can recover.
    
    1-3: Oddly enough, 1-1 seems to be the hardest in this warp zone.  The middle 
    platforms may be higher up, but you have more room on the walls to safely land 
    and jump.
    BANDAGE: Same as #1: wall jump to it.  Yet easier thanks to a larger margin of 
    error.  Weird how that works, huh?
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-6: The Shaft
    A-rank: 4.5 seconds
    
    Ride the conveyor belts, moving to the next one when you're free.  Don't 
    influence your direction too much; let the lifts take care of it.  Also, just 
    move Meat Boy, don't jump.  Though there's a bit of a protruding salt wall 
    after conveyor belt #4.  Watch out.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-7: Mind The Gap (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 12.4 seconds
    
    More conveyor belts, much more open area.  Use the lift from each belt to 
    bypass the chasms and pillar of salt.  Just keep moving right and you'll get 
    to Bandage Girl.
    
    WARP ZONE: After crossing the giant salt pillar, the warp zone can be found 
    underneath the right conveyor belt.  You can't reach it as Meat Boy; come back 
    when you're Ogmo or The Kid.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-7 Warp Zone: [Tunnel Vision] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: Slide down the collapsing wall, then navigate the buzzsaws.  You can walk 
    under buzzsaw #2.
    BANDAGE: AUGH.  You'll have to wall jump on the bottom very carefully, both to 
    avoid falling and to avoid flying into a buzzsaw in your return.
    
    1-2: Lay off the run button for this one.  Just jump through; hard to give 
    more advice than that.
    
    1-3: Opposite of level 1.  Move through the buzzsaws and climb up to Bandage 
    Girl.  Make sure you don't destroy the wall you need to survive.
    BANDAGE: AUGH AGAIN.  Except this time you have to have enough room to jump 
    while leaving enough wall for you to climb up.  Annoying, eh?
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-8: Boomtown
    A-rank: 8.3 seconds
    
    Oh boy, rockets!  These things will home in on your position and explode, so 
    you'll have to keep moving to avoid them.  In this level, just keep moving 
    quickly and you should reach Bandage Girl with ease.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-9: Shotzie!
    A-rank: 12.5 seconds
    
    A conveyor belt and a rocket.  At the top is a key behind a collapsing wall 
    and pile of salt.  Make your way up, grab the key, make your way down.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-10: Breakdown (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 10.5 seconds
    
    An exciting one, but not too hard.  Just run left and right down the 
    collapsing floors, dodging rockets.  Heck, if you're fast enough the rockets 
    won't even be able to catch you.
    
    BANDAGE:  Behind the rocket on the bottom floor.  Tad bit dangerous, but you 
    won't have to go far out of your way to get it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-11: Box Tripper (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    WALL OF DEATH!  Move to the right quickly, through the halls, above the gaps, 
    and around the salt spots.
    
    BANDAGE: BEHIND the giant advancing wall of saw blades.  You can duck into the 
    first open space you find, then continue upwards to grab the bandage when 
    you're able.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-12: The Dumper
    A-rank: 11.6 seconds
    
    A bit intimidating, but not too hard.  Advance up the walls, jumping across to 
    the other side when necessary.  Bandage Girl's in the upper left.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-13: The Bend
    A-rank: 15.8 seconds
    
    A straightforward level, but not necessarily an easy one.  Just travel 
    counterclockwise along with the saws, jump over the salt at the bottom, and 
    just don't get hit.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-14: Gurdy
    A-rank: 14.8 seconds
    
    Jump from platform to platform as they move, duck into the building and head 
    down, avoiding the salt.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-15: Vertigo
    A-rank: 14.8 seconds
    
    You're going up, up, up here.  The two moving platforms can crush you, so
    watch out.  Again, just keep jumping.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-16: Mono (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 14.8 seconds (three 4.8 in a row?  Geez.)
    
    There's a platform constantly moving from left to right on the bottom floor.  
    Your job is to move quickly, staying ahead of it.  When you pass through the 
    building, jump onto the wall's right side and go up to grab a key.  If you 
    were quick enough, the platform should be below you, taking you straight to 
    Bandage Girl.
    
    WARP ZONE:  Really easy, oddly enough.  Stand on the platform in front of you.  
    Wait.  WOOOOO
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-16 Warp Zone: The Jump Man!
    
    1-1: Meet Ogmo.  He has a double jump!  A weird double jump though...it's not 
    as high as The Kid's, who you'll get later.  This level's a good one to test 
    out his abilities in.  You can jump to the right, double jump at the bottom of 
    the long shaft, then double jump to Bandage Girl.
    
    1-2: You're gonna have to master the long jump and the running start to make 
    it through here.  Give yourself space, both on the initial jump and the 
    double.  In the last corrider, stand still and make more vertical jumps.
    
    1-3: Lay off the run button for this one, and remember that you don't have to 
    press towards the wall in order to wall jump.  These are weird jumps, but 
    they're manageable.  Just make sure you're wall jump gives you enough room to 
    double jump to the next wall.  Once on top you can run to get across the layer 
    of spikes.  Again, stop running to fall down the spike pit and double jump at 
    the bottom.  Just takes practice.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-17: Rustic
    A-rank: 10.5 seconds
    
    This level will be annoying.  Mentally prepare yourself for it.  You'll have 
    to climb up the collapsing wall to grab the key, fall down the column to grab 
    another key, then climb up the wall again, all while rockets are shooting at 
    you.  It will be hell.  Just try not to waste too much wall on your way up.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-18: The Gaundle (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 17 seconds
    
    Conveyor Belt and buzzsaws.  Lovely.  Make your way to the right, dodging the 
    saws, then wall jump and grab the key in the upper right.  Move back to the 
    left, and the wall will slowly disintegrate so you can reach Bandage Girl.
    
    BANDAGE: You're gonna need Ogmo or The Kid for this.  When you grab the key, 
    the ceiling with start disappearing.  Continuously wall jump off the 
    disappearing key blocks in order to gain enough horizontal momentum to reach 
    the bandage on the top of the level.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-19: Dig
    A-rank: 17 seconds
    
    "Dig" is an appropriate title.  Lots of collapsable flooring, all with a 
    rocket firing at you.  If you're careful you can put a wall between the rocket 
    and you, giving you some leverage for the bottom floor rocket.  Once you reach 
    the bottom, take the conveyor belt up, but be careful of the salt on the 
    walls.  Unless you have a double jump, you'll need some lift to reach Bandage 
    Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3-20: White Noise (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 20 seconds
    
    Lotsa salt here.  Jump to the rising belt, hover over to the right.  Here's a 
    narrow corridor with a rocket in it, and a collapsing ceiling to exit through.  
    Afterwards, drop down to the right and grab the key.  Now wait, sloooowly as 
    the blocks open, continuously dodging the rocket.
    
    BANDAGE: At the end of the level, you'll find another key behind Bandage Girl.  
    You'll have to backtrack to the building to find the bandage.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss: Brownie
    
    This really isn't a boss fight so much as a long obstacle course with a time 
    limit of the constantly rising salt.  Brownie's about your speed, but he's 
    guaranteed to make it to the end of the level, so if you can keep ahead of 
    him, you're good.  That said, there's not a whole lot of strategy here.  I'll 
    mention a small gap about 2/3 through the course that you'll have to be 
    careful jumping into.  Other than that, good luck.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Chapter 4: Hell (Light World)
    
    OHMAIGOD IT'S HELL RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!
    
    ...Yeah, Hell is exactly what it sounds like.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-1: Boilermaker
    A-rank: 11 seconds
    
    Tip: at the very start, press right after you can move to basically float down 
    to the the bottom platform.  Go through the saw blades with plenty of space, 
    and wall jump over the left blade before proceeding right.  There's only a 
    tiny alcove to enter to the exit.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-2: Brindle (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 23 seconds
    
    A slow-moving platform level.  Past the first buzzsaws, you'll have to wait 
    for the platform to catch up.  Then jump up past the lone buzzsaw, jump over 
    the lava pool, and you can ride the platform to Bandage Girl.  Or if you're 
    going for the A-rank, hop onto the bottom platform to save some time.
    
    BANDAGE: Getting the bandage isn't hard, but getting away with it is.  It's 
    in a corner near the single buzzsaw, so you'll have to quickly grab it, jump 
    to the wall holding up the lava pool, and quickly pull yourself up.  It's a 
    pain.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-3: Heck Hole
    A-rank: 11.5 seconds
    
    Lava rising!  It'd be tedious to explain the exact path, so just switch walls 
    to climb when necessary.  To get the A+, you'll have to get to Bandage Girl 
    FAR before the lava hits.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-4: Hex
    A-rank: 11.5 seconds
    
    Rush at the start.  The two lava pools you see will have fireballs leaping out 
    of them, so careful when you wall jump.  In the second part, jump next to the 
    saws, then carefully jump over then the platform's there to catch your fall.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-5: Pyro
    A-rank: 12 seconds
    
    Lava and spikes.  Jump through the saw blades onto the moving platform, wait 
    for the fireball to pass before jumping through the next set of saws.  Hop on 
    the middle platform, and quickly jump to the right wall before the next 
    fireball hits you.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-6: Leviathan (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 8 seconds
    
    You're gonna be moving clockwise around the room.  Careful at the start; 
    there's a lot of lava, and not much wall.  Also, fireball.  Watch the timing 
    of the middle platform before you pass through.  Then you have a choice 
    between a saw room and a lava pit with a fireball.
    
    BANDAGE: Above Bandage Girl, in the room with the saw.  Drop into the room, 
    run to the left, and drop onto the platform.  Wait for the saw to pass, and 
    jump to grab it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-7: Rickets
    A-rank: 17 seconds
    
    Get good at dodging saw blades.  Watch the timing and pass through.  The 
    journey up shouldn't be hard, but you may have trouble landing on a platform 
    at the bottom.  Just be careful.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-8: Weibe (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 16 seconds
    
    Weibe?  Like the guy who plays Donkey Kong!  Woo.  This is mostly a case of 
    knowing where you're safe (corners) and when to jump (when they aren't 
    bouncing).
    
    WARP ZONE: This one's invisible.  It's in the upper right of the room in the 
    last hallway before Bandage Girl, obscured by some scenery.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-8 Warp Zone: [Brimstone] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: A game of "watch the pattern and jump".
    
    1-2: The timing here is incredibly hard.  When the fireballs are coming down, 
    watch closely and find an opening for some of the upper fireballs, then 
    quickly wall jump to safety.
    BANDAGE: Just below the dancing fireballs.  Not only will you have to time a 
    jump to get to it, but it will screw up your timing for going up, so watch out.
    
    1-3: You are safe in corners.  Keep that in mind, and watch out as you proceed 
    upwards.  Also, when you move up a floor, there will be two fireballs coming 
    at you from different angles and timing.  If you're quick, you can bypass the 
    first obstacle.
    BANDAGE: Go through THE WHOLE LEVEL, LAND ON THAT TINY LITTLE PLATFORM WITH 
    THE BANDAGE ON IT, THEN DO IT AGAIN.  ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-9: Deceiver (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 6 seconds
    
    Meet portals!  Hop in one and come out another, same momentum and direction!  
    Run and jump into the first portal you see to help you cross a ledge, then 
    watch the lower platform before jumping into the next portal.
    
    BANDAGE: Hovering next to a lava fall at the start.  Drop from the right 
    portal into it.  Ogmo/The Kid helps your momentum.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-10: Ball N Chain
    A-rank: 15 seconds
    
    Annoying level.  Jump into the portal upwards, then land in the room and jump 
    into the portal from below so you reach the key.  Fall into the portal, then 
    fall into the next portal so you're back where you started.  Take the platform 
    to the right, then maneuver your way past the fire barrels.  Long jump into 
    the portal on the right to win.  The level's much harder than it sounds, and 
    even harder if going for the A-rank.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-11: Oracle
    A-rank: 12.5 seconds
    
    Get a running start into the first portal so you fly to the one on the other 
    side of the screen.  Hop up and hold right so you reach the wall and grab the 
    key.  Make your way back, careful of your momentum.  If you need help, Ogmo 
    makes this level a cinch.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-12: Big Brother
    A-rank: 10.8 seconds
    
    Laser eyes, that's new.  Travel counter-clockwise around the level to grab the 
    key, then clockwise to get back.  The lasers are slow, but it's impossible to 
    pass through them; you have to go around.  In the "safe spots", wait until the 
    laser is firing at the wall so you can escape.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-13: Lazy (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 11.5 seconds
    
    Two counterclockwise trips around the room, with disintegrating walls and a 
    laser beam.  Grab the key in the top right, the key on the right side, and 
    then the key that falls from top to bottom (you'll grab it at the bottom).  
    Good luck.
    
    BANDAGE: HUGE pain.  You'll have to destroy enough wall to access it, but not 
    so much that the laser will attack you.  Try leaving at least two blocks on 
    the bottom of the room, and destroy two higher up.  That's enough to get in.  
    To get out, quickly hop on the highest block you can and jump to safety.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-14: Adversary (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 17.5 seconds
    
    More straightforward than it look.  Whether on the ground or the ceiling, take 
    cover behind each block so the laser will aim directly at you, letting you 
    pass safely to the next section.  Don't rush it.  Kinda easy once you get the 
    hang of it.
    
    WARP ZONE: It's in the top left of the room, above the second laser eye.  To 
    reach it, there's a hidden passage in the wall to the left of the top block 
    jutting from the wall.  Jump through there and head left and you're good.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-14 Warp Zone: [The Key Master] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: RUN!  A key in front of you will constantly destroy the floor, so move 
    through the linear path as fast as possible.
    
    1-2: Bandage Girl is below you, and there are four keys hovering along the 
    edges of the room.  Watch their paths, jump out to grab them, and DI your way 
    back to the right.
    BANDAGE: In the very center of the room.  You can't wait for it to get any 
    closer, just keep honing your skills.
    
    1-3: A very linear path where you constantly have to dodge buzzsaws.  Watch 
    your openings, and jump through.
    BANDAGE: Buried in the huge mass of blocks in the middle.  Just keep 
    headbutting them until you see it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-15: Abaddon
    A-rank: 9 seconds
    
    Oh god, I hate these things.  Like the rockets, these things will home in on 
    you.  Unlike the rockets, these things sent out a ton of shrapnel to kill you.  
    Later levels will be a pain.  For this one, just run and climb to the right, 
    then back left to Bandage Girl.  Avoiding the black rocket is the challenge.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-16: Bow (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 12 seconds
    
    This one's tricky.  Run to the right, slide up the wall to distract the 
    lasers, then drop through the hole in the wall.  Make sure the left laser 
    isn't blocking your path, then high-tail it to the upper level.  Break the 
    wall while watching out for the rocket (short jumping helps).
    
    BANDAGE:  Okay, getting the bandage here is a pain.  It's right next to you at 
    the start, in a locked cage.  The key is in the upper left of the lever, above 
    Bandage Girl.  You're gonna have to watch out for the exploding missile to 
    grab it (it's practically invisible, too), and then you have to make your way 
    back to the start of the level, requiring some awkward double jumps to throw 
    off the lasers.  Once you grab it though, it's just another run through the 
    level to get back.

    4-17: Lost Highway (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 12 seconds
    
    Don't rush into the portal; there's a wall of lava on the right of the exit.  
    Instead, jump straight up into it and move left.  Pass the saws, then hop into 
    another portal to a safe platform.  Watch the lava barrels very carefully 
    here, and plan your exit.
    
    BANDAGE: Ogmo/The Kid is your friend here.  The bandage is hovering in the air 
    on the left side of the stage.  While I'm sure it's possible to grab it as 
    Meat Boy, Ogmo was a ton easier.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-18: Boris (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 24.5 seconds
    
    More exploding rockets!  Hop on the moving platform, wait for the rocket to 
    home in on you, then jump to the wall on the right.  Dodge the shrapnel, then 
    hop back on the platform.  Do this again.  When the platform's on the ground 
    level, stay on its left side, then move to the right when you hear the rocket.  
    Past that, you're good to go.
    
    WARP ZONE: To the bottom right of the source of the rockets.  It's in an 
    invisible hallway.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-18 Warp Zone: [The Fly Guy]
    
    1-1: Yay Flywrench!  Personally, I don't like how he handles, but whatever.  
    He has multiple jumps, and climbs up walls vertically.  The first level's 
    easy, just maneuver your way up.
    
    1-2: Dude has three jumps.  Use them.  Float downward, float around, and 
    finally on top of Meat Boy.
    
    1-3: Another level of "watch the timing".  Float up, around, and down to get 
    to the exit.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-19: The Hive
    A-rank: 14 seconds
    
    An exploding rocket and a slow-moving elevator.  Also a collapsing floor, but 
    it's not that big a deal.  Pick a side, wait for the rocket to fly towards 
    you, and run to the other, doing a short hop over the shrapnel.  Once the 
    elevator's down the shaft, just jump down to Bandage Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4-20: Babylon (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 22 seconds
    
    Oh hey, the exit's right behind that portal PSYCHE!  Anyway, climb over the 
    first bridge, and when you jump into the portal, try straight up; forward 
    momentum may kill you.  Room 2: Hop over the fireballs when necessary.  Room 
    3: You're safe in the spot in the upper middle, otherwise careful of the 
    rising fire.  Room 4: Do a circle around the room to grab the key and avoid 
    the laser.  Room 5: Destroy the floor, watch for the shrapnel, and grab 
    Bandage Girl.
    
    BANDAGE: In the last room near the ceiling.  Don't waste much time; just watch 
    where the shrapnel tends to fly, and get enough height from a wall jump to 
    grab it.  You may be able to fall straight down to Bandage Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss: Little Horn
    
    Holy crap, a monster Meat Boy!  First off, jump to the right ledge.  He'll 
    pound a fist on the left of the stage, then swing it across after he blinks.  
    Jump over it.  Then he'll do the opposite side.  Careful not to jump too early 
    or too late; you need to be at the apex of your jump.  Stay out of the center 
    of the stage.  He'll slam his head into it and hurt himself.
    
    Watch out for the debris from the ceiling as it falls.  Then, he'll pound his 
    hands like this: Outer Left, Outer Right, Inner Left, Inner Right.  Make sure 
    you aren't in those spots when he attacks.  Then, he'll hit the left side of 
    the stage and swing his hand across, as before.  Remember he'll blink before
    he swings.  Stay out of the center, and he will slam his head into it again.
    
    More debris.  Once again, Outer Left, Outer Right, Inner Left, Inner Right.  
    Again, the four pounds in the same pattern.  He'll bash his head into the 
    middle again, killing himself and winning you the battle.

    Chapter 5: Rapture (Light World)
    
    If you survived that last boss fight, you're ready for world 5.  As you'd 
    expect, it's even worse.  This isn't the final world, but you're getting 
    there.

    5-1: The Witness (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 22 seconds
    
    Run to the right, freefall between the buzzsaws, and continue right, then up 
    the pathways.  First buzzsaw, just jump when you see an opening.  For the next 
    two, jump through when they are at the bottom, then quickly wall jump up 
    before they reach you.  Vertical shaft shouldn't be a problem.  Head into the 
    building on the right, then maneuver through to get to the end.
    
    Warp Zone: It's easy to see (it's at the top of the second building), but 
    you're gonna have to get there quickly to reach it before it disappears.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-1 Warp Zone: [Skyscraper] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: There's a key below you, floating between some spikes at the start.  Grab 
    it and jump across the gap.  Climb the building, careful of the rightmost 
    buzzsaw.  I'd recommend you go back to the starting platform and just jump 
    across when you have the chance.  In the second building, maneuver your way
    down, grab the key, and go back up.  In the third building, the key is on the 
    bottom floor, with the entrance on the side of the building.  Slide down the 
    building to carefully land on the single space available.  Grab the key and 
    stand back on the ledge.  You're going to have to jump through a pair of 
    descending buzzsaws to reach Bandage Girl.
    
    1-2: Spikes everywhere, but strangely easier than the first level.  As you 
    proceed up, look at what walls are available.  Between the second and third 
    floors, there's a spike on the opposite wall, but Meat Boy can touch the floor 
    at the height of his jump.  It's a straightforward level, just very annoying.
    BANDAGE: Next to you at the start, locked behind bars.  You have to grab a key 
    at the end of the level, then slide down a long path to the right back to the 
    start.  You can't come back up that path, but you do get to do the level 
    again!
    
    1-3: Instead of trying to land in the small gap, just jump onto the right 
    wall; there's enough room to wall jump your way up.  Jump to the left, up 
    through a pair of spikes, then onto the platform below the rolling gear.  The 
    gear will continously move to the right, but there is room for you to stand 
    beneath it as you pass.  Take your time jumping through the spikes.  Wait for 
    the gear to pass, then run and jump through the narrow corridor.  You have 
    limited time, but don't rush yourself because you'll probably mess up.  Once 
    you're through, keep jumping, and fall down between the spikes.  Now, you'll 
    have to jump to the right, between the spikes, but move towards the wall so 
    you don't land on the spikes below you.  Be careful where you're standing; if 
    you're too close to the wall, it'll register as a wall jump.  Carefully jump 
    in the spot ahead of you.  Bandage Girl is right there.
    BANDAGE: Surprisingly easy to get compared to the rest of the level.  Once 
    you're going down, you'll see it floating beneath some spikes.  Practice your 
    jumping so you won't accidentally jump too high.  If you're going through the 
    level, you might as well grab this one.
    
    This warp zone is hard as hell.  Don't feel bad if your soul is crushed while 
    attempting it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-2: Evangel
    A-rank: 13 seconds
    
    Hovering things!  These will push you away from the center, either giving you 
    lift, or shortening your jumps.  Run and jump over the first force field, then 
    slide down the left wall in the next area.  Jump towards the force field at 
    just the right angle to hover you through the buzzsaws.  Then, hover up to 
    Bandage Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-3: Ripe Decay (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 18 seconds
    
    Dodge the first saw, then as you run to the right, just try to jump over the 
    buzzsaws as normal; the force field will push you down, but not with enough 
    strength.  Hover over the force field either through the buzzsaws or onto the 
    platform, then again to the right building.  Here, just run straight through, 
    not even jumping.  Dodge the last saw to get to Bandage Girl.
    
    BANDAGE: On the left side of the right building, behind a buzzsaw.  To get it, 
    stand on the middle platform and leap into the force field, giving you enough 
    lift to move past the buzzsaw so you can easily grab the bandage.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-4: Rise
    A-rank: 13.5 seconds
    
    This level's annoying.  Jump to the right, then wall jump up once, with both 
    jumps reaching the maximum height.  Jump across to the left, and the force 
    field should push you up the wall past the buzzsaws.  Jump to the right and do 
    it again, then jump to the left and float above the force field, then hover to 
    the next force field, finally hovering into the next building.  Jump into the 
    force field so you're pushed to the top floor, and you're good!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-5: Panic Switch (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 12.5 seconds
    
    Buttons!  Hit the first button to open the ceiling, hit the button on the wall 
    to open the next ceiling.  Hit the button on the bridge, then run!  Dodge the 
    obstacles and make sure you reach the end before the floor disappears.  Once 
    there, wall jump to hit the button on the ceiling, then fall through the two 
    buzzsaws, then dodge the middle one below to reach Bandage Girl on the right.
    
    BANDAGE: Just hovering in the air above the stage.  Skip the button that opens 
    the floor and just run to the right, onto the ledge.  Run left and jump off 
    the ledge to grab it, then complete the stage as normal.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-6: Left Behind
    A-rank: 11 seconds
    
    Tricky.  Hit the button, then jump through the opened wall.  Slide down and 
    hit the next button, then wall jump up the right through the opened door.  Hit 
    the button on THAT wall, then very quickly navigate the narrow platforms to 
    Bandage Girl; the button opens up a wall right between the two buzzsaws you'll 
    have to jump through.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-7: The Fallen (WARP ZONE)
    A-rank: 23 seconds
    
    Annoying!  Move into the right building and hit the button.  A key will fall 
    from the ceiling; grab it, or you'll have to go to the bottom.  Hit the switch 
    in the upper left, then quickly jump to the right building.  Below the buzzsaw 
    is another button, hit that and a key will fall from the ceiling.  If you fail 
    to grab it mid-air, you'll have to do the level over again.  Move back to the 
    left, though you'll enter the middle building from the bottom, and will have 
    to dodge two buzzsaws to get through.  Bandage Girl is back at the start.
    
    WARP ZONE:  On the right side of the farthest building on the right.  Make it 
    through the level as quick as you can, and hop through the space in the upper 
    right to the outside.  Fall down the side of the building and you'll find it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-7 Warp Zone: The Guy!
    
    Take a look at this.  Take a good look at the level.  You are The Kid, and 
    these are the levels based off of "I Wanna Be The Guy".  They're some of the 
    hardest levels in the game.  But if you beat them, you get The Kid, who has an 
    awesome double jump that will help you a ton when going for 100% completion.
    
    1-1: First off, let go of the run button.  You won't need it.  You'll also 
    need to master wall jumping and double jumping in a very cramped space.  
    You'll be moving down, up, down, up, right, left, right.  It'd be incredibly 
    tedious to explain every jump you have to make, so I'll only mention a few 
    spots.  At the start, fall off the ledge instead of jumping.  It will give you 
    an extra jump.  Going down the third column, make sure you have a spare jump 
    so you can hit the wall on the right.  When making the long jump to the right, 
    do a short hop so you don't hit your head, then a long jump to make it all the 
    way.  If you can get that far, you'll be able to reach the end of the level.
    
    1-2: Not as hard as the last level, but possibly even more frustrating.  
    You're gonna have to have a "1-2-1-2" motion in your head going if you want to 
    get through this.  Listening to the music can help, since occasionally it will 
    match up to the rhythm you need to progress.  The outer columns aren't that 
    hard since there's plenty of space, but the inner columns (columns 3 in 
    particular) will be a pain due to your limited movement.  Make absolutely sure 
    that you won't run into a spike; watching the platform's connection with the 
    spikes help.  When going up, make sure it's over the spike, and when going 
    down, make sure it touches the next spike down before you move, or you'll run 
    into the upper one.  As for the platform in the middle, run and do a couple of 
    long jumps.  Once you get the timing down, it's actually easy compared to the 
    rest of the level.  I'd only recommend running for the upper platform.
    
    1-3:  Looks intimidating, but actually pretty easy compared to the last two 
    sections.  On each floor, a wall of spikes will fly from the right that you'll 
    need to double jump over.  There's spikes on the ceiling and walls that you'll 
    need to bypass when the spikes aren't flying at you, and you'll need to time 
    your jumps between levels carefully.  It looks hard, but with enough practice 
    it's not nearly as bad as what you just did.  Keep your finger on the run 
    button for this one; you'll need it to get through levels 2 and 3.
    
    Congratulations!  You just unlocked The Kid, one of the best characters in the 
    ge!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-8: Descent
    A-rank: 20 seconds
    
    Not a whole lot to say about this one.  Just an elevator constantly moving 
    down, and dodge the buzzsaws as you go.  The only way to learn the pattern is 
    to do it yourself.  Good luck.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-9: Abomination (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 19.5 seconds
    
    Ugh, Meat Boy clones.  They'll follow you around and kill you, and even jump 
    into you!  Just head right, destroying the walls, grab the key at the far end, 
    and head back to the start.  Along the way you'll meet two clones normally, 
    and a third will drop as you hit a button while running (you can't jump over 
    it).
    
    BANDAGE:  Nearly invisible.  Notice those buzzsaws in the first building?  
    Jump up the left side, and you'll find a hole level with the buzzsaws.  The 
    bandage is between the two in the air.  You'll hear it when you grab it, and 
    even if you didn't, you'll still have the notice at the end of the level to 
    get it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-10: Grinding Mill
    A-rank: 15.5 seconds
    
    A waiting level.  The key will drop through several platforms, but as they do 
    so, so will various clones come out to ruin your fun.  You can try to dodge 
    them, but I preferred luring them to the right.  If you jump in the space by 
    the wall, the clones will jump into the buzzsaw, killing them.  Once you've 
    grabbed the key, just wall jump up the left wall (around the buzzsaw) to 
    Bandage Girl.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-11: Heretic
    A-rank: 18.5 seconds
    
    A clone's chasing you right at the start, but that doesn't mean you should 
    rush through that moving buzzsaws; let it pass before going through.  Ditto 
    for the following buzzsaws.  From here, jump through the two buzzsaws and 
    force field, and notice a button on the ceiling in the bottom right room.  Hit 
    it, and a door on the outer wall will open up to Bandage Girl.  But two clones 
    will also drop to the floor.  Get past them, use the force field to float up 
    to the door and reach the exit.  The button has a VERY small timer on it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-12: 10 Horns (WARP ZONE) (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 16 seconds
    
    Watch the disappearing floor ahead of you, and run across when it's open.  
    Careful of the clone, then jump up the walls when they're solid.  Watch the 
    disappearing platforms, and jump through when you can.
    
    WARP ZONE: If you have The Kid, you can climb the mountain at the start of the 
    level and access this one.  It disappears after 7 seconds though...
    
    BANDAGE:  You'll need a double jump character for this one.  When you get to 
    the disappearing platforms, slide down the wall instead; the bandage is just 
    floating above the pile of salt, and you need an extra jump to get it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-12 Warp Zone: [Sunshine Island] (BANDAGE X2)
    
    1-1: You'll have to traverse through the lower level.  Watch the falling 
    buzzsaws, then jump and destroy the wall.  Careful hopping through, then 
    destroy the next walls when the path is clear.  Jump to the building to the 
    right, and you'll have to fall through to get the key at the bottom.  You'll 
    need to be careful with wall jumps both going in and getting out.  Once you're 
    at the top, Bandage Girl's to your left.
    BANDAGE: Hovering just above the corner buzzsaw.  Get a running start for it.
    
    1-2: Jump out to the keyhole platforms, then wall jump up to the central 
    stage.  Carefully watch the buzzsaws, and try to destroy as much of the floor 
    as you can.  When you grab the key, Bandage Girl will be free, but the key 
    platforms will also disappear if you take too long.  If you fail, don't worry, 
    you can still do a long wall jump to Bandage Girl's platform.
    
    1-3:  Key in the upper right, Bandage Girl in the bottom left.  You'll have to 
    travel counterclockwise from your start position to reach the key, and you'll 
    also need to make sure you don't destroy too much of the wall for your second 
    go around.  Alternatively, you can be creative with your jumps and just jump 
    on top.  Rest of the level is straightforward, just make sure to do tiny 
    jumps.
    BANDAGE: Hovering in the air in the upper right, to the left of the key.  You 
    can actually wall jump off the two bottom most blocks to get to it, also 
    bypassing part of the level!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-13: The Lamb
    A-rank: 20 seconds
    
    Disappearing platforms here.  As you jump on one, you'll have to jump to the 
    next, as the one you're standing on will disappear.  Even when wall jumping 
    across great distances, the timing will be the same, so just be careful.  It's 
    not that hard.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-14: King Carrion
    A-rank: 30.5 seconds
    
    There's a whole bunch of white guys going down, but if you drop off the right 
    ledge you can bypass all of them with no trouble.  What IS trouble is that 
    brown ghost who reminds me of the Angry Sun from Super Mario Bros. 3.  He'll 
    follow you around and generally make your life a pain.  Anyway, once you're on 
    the bottom level, head to the right and you'll see a key hanging from a wire.  
    Grab it and head back to the left to grab another key that's right next to a 
    pile of salt; be careful.  Head back right and wall jump up the corridor past 
    the salt and you're good.  The hard part of the level is the tiny platforms in 
    the middle, as well as the ghost chasing you all over the place.  I found that 
    if you land on the left platform, you can just run to the bottom middle one 
    without even jumping.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-15: The Flood
    A-rank: 13.5 seconds
    
    Constantly advancing wall of salt from the left, lots of salt piles and 
    enemies in your path on the right.  There's really no tricks I have for this 
    level other than keep the run button held down.  The momentum will help you 
    get through those narrow corridors.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-16: Rotgut (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 30 seconds
    
    I cheated here and just used The Kid to double jump through the force fields 
    straight to the exit.  On to the next stage!
    
    ...Okay, fine.  Move to the right and jump over the first gap.  On this 
    platform, try to get a running start, and jump at the last moment, holding 
    right.  You should fall down to the next safe platform with no trouble.  Saves 
    you some time!  Jump up this buzzsaw corridor (easy), then slide down the next 
    wall.  Wall jump to the force field, and hover over it a moment to make sure 
    you have lift, then hover to the next force field and back to safety.  Careful 
    of the ghost.  Wall jump up this corridor (easy again), then head left to the 
    next force field.  Careful with your jump here.  THe force field will push you 
    down, and you need to land on that small platform.  If you can manage that, 
    the rest of the level is easy.
    
    BANDAGE: It's floating to the right of the force fields next to Bandage Girl.  
    Not overly hard to get (especially if you're The Kid).
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-17: The Kingdom
    A-rank: 23 seconds
    
    I know this is supposed to be a really hard level, but somehow I aced it on my 
    first try when doing this guide.  Anyway, there are plenty of traps here you 
    haven't seen before.  First are the rotating wheels that shoot four buzzsaws 
    at a time.  They'll shoot both horizontally/vertically, then diagonally.  
    Watch their patterns.  Past that are the homing rockets, which you've seen 
    before.  What you haven't seen before are the destructible walls that require 
    a rocket to explode.  Stand in front of it, then run or jump out of the way of 
    the rocket to clear the path.  Next rooms are the homing buzzsaws which shoot 
    in your direction, but they're easy to get past.  Collapsing wall that you 
    destroy yourself, another homing rocket, and another wall that needs a rocket 
    to blow up, and you're good.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-18: Gate of Ludd (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 17 seconds
    
    This level's a nightmare.  Use the force fields to grab the key, then...wait.  
    Wait.  Keep waiting.  Hopefully you aren't dead yet.  There are constant 
    buzzsaws shooting in all directions, so keep a close on on their sources.  
    Also, when the ceiling opens up, another buzzsaw-shooter will be around to 
    piss you off.  My advice is to float directly above the right force field, 
    moving only to dodge incoming saws.  When Bandage Girl's care is finally open, 
    float over to her.
    
    BANDAGE:  Floating above the key.  Very difficult to get, considering you need 
    to wall jump around tons of buzzsaws to get to it.  You can get it as Meat 
    Boy, but I'd recommend The Kid (as usual).  A wall jump + double jump will 
    give you enough momentum to grab the key and hit the other wall.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-19: Wrath
    A-rank: 29 seconds
    
    Long level.  Jump up, destroy the walls, and dodge the homing buzzsaw.  Next 
    room, the floor needs to be destroyed by rockets, but you'll also have to hit 
    a button in the top right corner.  The button is behind a wall that needs to 
    be destroyed by rockets.  The next room is pretty crazy; buzzsaws shooting in 
    constant patterns, so you'll have to watch them and move when you can.  Then 
    there's a disappearing wall you'll need to wall jump up, but it's not that 
    bad.  Another two collapsing walls with a homing buzzsaw in them, and you're 
    done!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5-20: Judgment (BANDAGE)
    A-rank: 32 seconds
    
    Another long level.  At the start, you'll fall down and see three ghosts.  
    Jump over them, then to the blinking platforms.  These wouldn't be so hard if 
    not for that one ghost that chases you through the sequence.  Evade him the 
    best you can, and head into the right building.  There's multiple levels of 
    floor that you'll need to destroy via rocket, as well as a buzzsaw to take 
    care of.  Finally, a rapidly disappearing floor with clones underneath it.  
    I'd recommend you jump as you cross this, because the floor really doesn't 
    stay up for long.  If you have trouble with the ghosts, you can "slingshot" 
    them offscreen.  If they come towards you with enough momentum, and you travel 
    to the other side of the screen once they've crossed you, they won't chase you 
    if they're offscreen.
    
    BANDAGE: In the pit with the Meat Boy clones.  Try to herd them to one side, 
    grab the bandage, and get out.  It's pretty difficult, and you have to do the 
    rest of this annoying level again if you fail.  The Kid's double jump will 
    give you some space.  Keep in mind that the clones will jump at the same time 
    you jump.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss: Larries Lament
    
    You've got three worms that will travel through the ground, then pop out and 
    try to attack you.  Your goal is to try to goad them into jumping into the 
    buzzsaws on the sides of the stage.  After the first dies, the next will shoot 
    shrapnel when he pops out of the ground, as well as occasionally charge 
    horizontally at you.  Neither is too difficult to dodge, but you're going to 
    have to actively try to kill these guys.  They also don't have a very generous 
    hitbox, so stay far away from them to avoid dying.
    
    At the very start, run to the left, wall jump on top of the platform, then 
    fall to the ground.  That should easily kill the first worm.  In fact, a good 
    tactic in general is to jump on top of either of the platforms; this way, they 
    will have to jump at you to attack you, and can't do that stupid ground charge 
    (not that that won't stop them from trying).  Just be careful of the shrapnel, 
    and jump to the side when you get too close to the buzzsaw at the height of 
    the platform's movement.  Also, you may need to preemptively jump out of the 
    way in case they spawn right below you.  If you wind up just falling to the 
    ground, it's fine.  Just pick a platform and try again.

    Chapter 6: The End (Light World)
    
    I love the Pokemon Red/Blue intro here.  This is the last world to beat the 
    game, and while there's only 5 levels (and a boss fight) in it, they're 
    extremely tough.  Also, no Bandages or Warp Zones to worry about.  
    Additionally, you won't be able to switch characters.  This world is all Meat 
    Boy!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6-1: The Pit
    A-rank: 30 seconds
    
    Time to infiltrate the fortress!  Spikes are on the ground level of the 
    fortress, so stay on the floating platforms.  You can run from the middle 
    platform to the right.  On the far right of the level is the first key hanging 
    from a rope.  When you grab that, head back to the middle platform, then go to 
    the upper left, where you'll find another key.  Back to the center, then move 
    to the upper right, infiltrate the middle building, and climb to the top, 
    dodging all the buzzsaws.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6-2: Schism
    A-rank: 44 seconds
    
    Run to the left, fall into the hole, and drop straight down until you hit the 
    ground.  Jump to the left platform, then maneuver around it to reach the 
    platform below it.  Long jump to the right, then long jump to the right again.  
    Wall jump left, right, and up, then grab the key.  Now go all the way back!  
    Well, that narrow pathway you didn't take is safe to drop through, then move a 
    square to the right to fall onto the next platform.  Long jump to the left, 
    then wall jump back up to the main section.  Dodging the buzzsaws isn't hard; 
    just keep the jump button held down as you wall jump to give yourself enough 
    momentum to slide up the walls.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6-3: Echoes
    A-rank: 34 seconds
    
    Lots of empty space.  Jump on the first couple of moving platforms, then watch 
    the rotating buzzsaw in the room.  Head in, grab the key on top of the center 
    block, then get out, moving clockwise like the buzzsaw.  Then, jump on the 
    platform going up, and do it again in that room.  Finally, jump on the 
    uppermost moving platform, then to the next one, and to the last building.  
    Head in here, and there will be two large buzzsaws to account for.  Grab the 
    key in the middle, fall down the pit, and jump on the last platform on your 
    way to Bandage Girl.  Keep in mind that in all the buzzsaw rooms, you can 
    stand on the center platform without getting hit.  Also, the buzzsaws 
    penetrate the walls, so don't idle on the outside or you'll get hit.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6-4: Gently
    A-rank: 33 seconds
    
    The thing to remember about this room is that the corners are safe.  If you 
    find yourself panicing about a buzzsaw, just stay in the corner, and you'll be 
    fine.  Also, only the saw itself will hurt you; the bar it's attached to will 
    pass by you.  When you get to the section with the giant buzzsaw, stay put, 
    and move vertically only when it's safe.  The inner corners here are only safe 
    from the small, fast-moving saw, not the big one.  Past that, there's a short 
    obstacle course, but nothing too tricky.  The last big room has four moving 
    saws, two on each wall.  Watch carefully and jump when you have space.  
    Bandage Girl's at the top.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6-5: Omega
    A-rank: 44 seconds
    
    I spent like half an hour playing this level before finally giving up, but I 
    came back a short while later after blowing off some steam and found it much 
    more manageable.  Maybe you'll feel the same way.
    
    This is possibly the hardest level up to this point in the game, and you'll 
    need every bit of skill you can to beat it.  To start, run to the right, wall 
    jump to the left, then wall jump over the buzzsaw to the right.  Get to the 
    top platform, then make a long jump to the left.  Make your way through the 
    building, though a note: when wall jumping over the buzzsaw on the right wall, 
    don't hold right until after you've cleared the saw.  Exit from the top, head 
    right, then slide down the wall under the buzzsaws.  When you're on the wall, 
    Meat Boy "sticks" to it a bit, so you can hold right even when on the left 
    wall.  I say this because you'll need the momentum to the right when jumping 
    under the first buzzsaw and between the two smaller ones.  Wall jump up the 
    next hall to grab the key, then inch yourself off the edge and alter your 
    momentum to fall in between the buzzsaws.  It's easier than trying to wall 
    jump your way down.  On the bottom platform, run to the right and jump to 
    clear the buzzsaw, then make your way to the corner.  Let go of the run button 
    when navigating the narrow corridors.  Success!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss: Dr. Fetus
    
    Final boss time!  This level actually has two parts:
    
    The Chase:
    
    Dr. Fetus has a rocket launcher, and he'll be chasing you through the level.  
    Though to be honest, he's a non-issue after the first room.  In the first room 
    you'll just have to wait until the buzzsaws have passed to continue, all while 
    dodging  homing rockets.  My advice is to wait until he shoots the rocket, 
    then jump; it'll curve into a wall.  As soon as the right buzzsaws have 
    cleared the path, move it, because another saw wall is on the left, and you 
    have to squeeze through a corridor before that happens.  Navigate the saws, 
    then slide down the wall and jump to the far platform, careful of the moving 
    buzzsaw.  Wait for the right buzzsaw wall to clear, then wall jump up the right 
    wall to the left platform (with the buzzsaw circling it).  Jump to the right, 
    make sure the saw wall is out of your way, then hop through the two saws on the 
    ceiling and floor.  Stay off the floor in this next area.  Instead, hop from 
    wall to wall until you're on the platform on the right.  Wall jump through the 
    various saws, fall and slide down the wall, then jump across.  You'll see a 
    large room with a button at the very top.  Hit it, then quickly make your way 
    to the room in the bottom right that just opened.  Dr. Fetus will approach, 
    and shoot a rocket at you (which will somehow go through the door, argh).  
    When Dr. Fetus walks across the floor, hit it, and he'll drop, Bowser-style.
    
    The Escape:
    
    Now to do the level in reverse, with Bandage Girl on your back.  Don't worry, 
    she doesn't hinder you.  Also, there's no wall of buzzsaws to stop you; just 
    go, go, go!  Also, since there's no A-rank in this level, feel free to take 
    your time with it.  When you get to the two buzzsaws on the left and right 
    walls, remember to let go of left for a moment when you jump so you don't 
    smack your head in the buzzsaw.  Then, fall straight past three buzzsaws onto 
    the platform below, to the left of the lone platform.  It's big, you can't 
    miss it.  Dodge the saws on the floor, wall jump on the left wall to the right 
    one, then up.  Wall jump through the top-bottom saws.  Head onto the first 
    platform with the swinging saw, then drop onto the lower one when the coast is 
    clear.  You can jump to the one on the right, or you can watch the position of 
    the saw below the screen to figure out where its attached platform is, and 
    just drop onto there.  From here, it's a simple obstacle course you've done a 
    million times before.  When you reach the big room, congrats, you've beaten 
    Super Meat Boy!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Cotton Alley (Light World)
    
    Oh, you thought you were done?  Nope!  In The Cotton Alley, you play as 
    Bandage Girl, trying to get Meat Boy back!  No Bandages or Warp Zones here, 
    either.  Just all incredibly hard, frustrating levels.  Have fun!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-1: Pink Noise
    A-rank: 11 seconds
    
    No tricks here, just a series of buzzsaws to navigate via wall jumps.  Only 
    thing of note is that when you jump across the center area, you can't fall to 
    the ground.  You HAVE to hit the wall to keep going.  Other than that, it's 
    simple enough.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-2: Run Rabbit Run
    A-rank: 13 seconds
    
    Straightforward, oddly enough.  Run to the right, between buzzsaws.  You run 
    faster than the saws, so there will be a point where you'll have to let up on 
    the run button for just a split second.  Drop down, do it all again running 
    left.  You'll be fine.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-3: Spinal Tap
    A-rank: 23 seconds
    
    I can't even comprehend that mess of buzzsaws.  At the start, watch for a 
    moment, and you'll see an opening to jump through.  Once you're in the mess of 
    things, stay very close to the corner blocks and watch how the buzzsaws 
    rotate.  Jump through each time you see an opening.  This level's crazy.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-4: Stag
    A-rank: 26 seconds
    
    The buzzsaws in front of you will move left and right.  Watch how they move 
    and how they cover the platforms.  Take your time.  When you get to the right, 
    watch the buzzsaw shooting from the right, then jump into the upper passage.  
    Hop over each horizontal buzzsaw, and walk under the vertical ones.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-5: Tommunism
    A-rank: 30 seconds
    
    I wish I could offer some sort of trick for this level, something to make it 
    all seem so easy, but I can't.  The blobs are annoying, and they're the only 
    obstacle between you and your goal (as well as a bed of spikes).  Just watch 
    their patterns and jump to each side, grabbing a key that unlocks a cage on 
    the other side of the level.  Good frickin' luck.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-6: Panic Attack
    A-rank: 7.5 seconds
    
    Oh, this one's fun.  Grab the key, then run, run, run.  Keep holding right and 
    keep running, it's the only way to get through.  You'll need to make a tall 
    jump to get past the last row of saws, but other than that the level is 
    straightforward.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-7: Tunnel Blower
    A-rank: 10.5 seconds
    
    Keep run held down, then fall over the fan, which will blow you up.  Hover 
    through the two saws, then over the next fan, which will propel you onto the 
    opposite ledge.  Grab the key, hover back over the fan, then use the momentum 
    to go up to reach Meat Boy.  That sounds simple, but the fan physics make this 
    level difficult.  Just keep trying.  When going across for the first time, 
    don't get too much upward momentum, because you'll either hit the buzzsaw, or 
    fall too quickly onto the next fan.  And when you have the key and are going 
    for the exit, remember that you get more lift the lower into the wind you 
    start.  Just don't overdo it.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-8: Pig Latin
    A-rank: 26 seconds
    
    Very tricky level.  You need to be a master of the wall jump, jumping from one 
    side to another, avoiding the blobs along the way.  If you can get to the 
    left-middle block you should be safe, so now watch the blobs as they climb up 
    the center.  Be patient, make sure you don't get hit by a blob, then make your 
    way up.  Once you've reached the halfway point, the rest of the level is just 
    what you've already done, now with less pressure; hitting Meat Boy on a large 
    platform is easier than not hitting a blob on a narrow one.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-9: Hatch
    A-rank: 21 seconds
    
    Three rooms, with a key on the ceiling in each.  There are buzzsaws shooting 
    clockwise, and conveyor belts on all walls moving counterclockwise.  Despite 
    this weird setup, the level isn't overly challenging.  Just watch where you 
    land and what walls you ride.  Grab the center key, left key, then right key, 
    then return to the center room to get to Meat Boy.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-10: Bullet Bob
    A-rank: 32 seconds
    
    When I think of "annoying levels with rockets", this is the poster child.  6 
    keys to grab, three rocket launchers.  Personally, I recommend you plan of 
    attack as follows.  Bottom right, bottom left, upper left, right dropped key, 
    upper right, left dropped key, exit.  It minimizes the amount of running 
    around that you'll have to do, and constantly gives you safe areas to stand in 
    (which is mainly the platform in the center).  The bottom right corners aren't 
    safe from fire, either.  The upper corners are better about it, but you just 
    have to keep moving and keep trying.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-11: Train Eater
    A-rank: 18 seconds
    
    You can't sit still, ever.  You have to constantly move left to right, and 
    constantly be dodging rocket fire.  The cannon on this level is ridiculous; it 
    gives you no breathing room, and you have to keep moving forward without 
    moving forward too much, else you'll run out of room.  Yeah, there are salt 
    mounds and buzzsaws to worry about, but it's that rocket that's the pain of 
    this level.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-12: Peel
    A-rank: 11.6 seconds
    
    It may look insane, but I had no problem with this level.  Just keep running, 
    and every time you see a spot to dodge a buzzsaw, take it.  Just keep moving 
    and you'll be fine.  Just...watch the start.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-13: Pepto
    A-rank: 22 seconds
    
    Another one of those "keep ahead of the death" levels.  The pepto bismol is 
    continuously rising, and you have to stay a step ahead of it.  It doesn't 
    matter whether or not you just leap to the other side, or whether you land on 
    the middle platform, just as long as you don't daudle for too long.  When you 
    approach the top, you might get a little disoriented on where to go.  Just 
    jump over the saw to the right, wall jump over to the left wall, and climb 
    that wall.  Other than that, the level is straightforward.  It's still hard 
    as hell.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-14: Watchtower
    A-rank: 40 seconds
    
    The A+ is 40 seconds, but I got it in 15 with not too much effort.  And you 
    can, too!  In this level there are four keys orbiting a laser eye.  The walls 
    in the level collapse when you touch them, so you need to make your jumps 
    count.  To do this, run to one side, jump twice as high as you can go, then 
    leap across the eye, grazing it and hopefully grabbing two keys.  Then, get 
    back under the middle platform.  Make sure you enter it from the same side you 
    just landed on, or you'll die trying to get back.  Then, watch the other two 
    keys, and when they're in a good position, double jump over the opposite wall 
    and grab them in one swoop.  Then just drop down to Meat Boy!  It's an 
    intimidating level, but it's manageable with this strategy.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-15: Lock Out
    A-rank: 24 seconds
    
    It's the return of the homing shrapnel rockets!  Not only do you have to dodge 
    them, but you'll have to grab the keys next to them in order to progress.  
    With practice, you can manipulate the flight of the rockets so their shrapnel 
    is more predictable and easily dodgeable.  Also keep in mind that the shooters 
    have a recharge period; that's when you get in, grab the key, and get out.  As 
    you open up the level, you'll have to deal with more rockets at once, but you 
    can get them to smack the ledge they're on if you're tricky.  This one's less 
    about a solid strategy, and more just outsmarting the obstacles.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-16: Hopscotch
    A-rank: 20 seconds
    
    An interesting force field level.  The force field will continually move 
    right, with no other platforms for you to step on to progress.  You'll have to 
    jump over it and adjust your altitude to avoid buzzsaws high and low.  Kind of 
    zen-like, really.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-17: Lead Sheets
    A-rank: 20 seconds
    
    This level looks intimidating, but it's actually one you should consider 
    rushing.  When the cannons are firing hor/vert, it's dangerous and you should 
    be careful where you stand.  But when they're firing diagonally, it's much 
    easier to evade.  You might think you should take things slowly, watch where 
    they're going and all that, but I found it a lot easier to just run like hell 
    whenever they weren't firing, and got through the level without much effort.  
    You might have the same success.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-18: Oobs Revengs
    A-rank: 21 seconds
    
    Those brown ghost things are called Oobs?  That's kinda dumb.  After trying 
    this level a few times, you might find it frustrating.  The ghosts constantly 
    get in the way, and it's hard to navigate the platforms considering they 
    collapse and you have to backtrack.  However, I found a nice trick to it.  
    Jump on the first low platform, and past that make long jumps to each of the 
    high platforms.  The ghosts were never positioned to block me.  On my way back 
    I took the lower path and enjoyed similar success.  If you come close but feel 
    you need to break this pattern, go ahead.  Ghosts chase you differently 
    depending on how you move, anyway, and it's no guarantee you're copying my 
    movements exactly.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-19: The Rash
    A-rank: 17 seconds
    
    Annoying.  Very annoying.  This level has a ton of buttons, and you have to 
    hit all of them.  Worst of all, they don't open the room immediately ahead, 
    they open the door a few rooms down.  So you have to hit every single button, 
    rushing through the level to make sure doors don't close.  If they do close, 
    your only choice is to self-destruct on a buzzsaw.  So mean!  A tip: hold jump 
    as much as possible when you hit a wall.  Sliding up a wall is a hell of a lot 
    easier than trying to jump into a narrow corridor.  Also, buzzsaw on the floor 
    at the very start, and buzzsaw on a floor at the very end.  Don't do what I 
    did and cheer for finally making it through the level, only to step on the 
    final buzzsaw.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    7-20: 4 Letter Word
    A-rank: 45 seconds
    
    F***.  S***.  C***.  Any other four letter words we can think of?  This level 
    will be the ultimate test of your Super Meat Boy skills.  You climb a tower, 
    dodging increasingly more complex traps.  At first they just sit there, then 
    they block your path, then they move in predictable patterns, then less 
    predictable patterns, and finally they make you make pixel-perfect jumps near 
    the very top.  It's a long road, and the 45-second challenge time is a pain, 
    but you've made it this far.  You can do it!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Legal Stuff:
    
    I don't really care if you use my guide or not, but I do want credit for any 
    work I write.  Got it? Good.
