Super Meat Boy
If you want a challenge, this time we suggest you turn to the unmissable Super Meat Boy. The title of Edmund McMillen, Tommy Refenes and Kyle Pulver puts you in the shoes of a piece of meat which, to save his sweetheart, intends to survey dozens and dozens of levels. But beware, although these different levels are made up of a multitude of tricky traps. The player must then use his speed, but also his skill, to tame these hostile environments as quickly as possible. If the idea appeals to you, but you want to live the experience in a group, note that the excellent Cloudberry Kingdom offers the same kind of experience, then, at your controllers.

The hero then appropriates planet Earth and rearranges it in his own way to create a gigantic 18 holes. As you can see, the player must now play with his club, but also with his dexterity, to complete this golf course like no other.
