MTV Multiplayer's Russ Frushtick has studied the two game's Xbox Live Arcade statistics for both side-scrolling, curse-inducing games and declared Super Meat Boy as the more rigorous experience.

vs

Super Meat By: Percent of Total Registered Users Who Have Completed The Final Level (7-20X) - 1.04%

Do the laws of mathematics allow me to hereby declare Super Meat Boy as twice as tough as N+?

Don't know from my own experience... I think I tried N (or N+?) as Flash, and found it impossible. It looks impossible, brutal, and not fun to me.

I'm about a quarter into hell in SMB, and while it's very ruthless and never hesitates to kill you, I wonder if it might even be an EASY game? I mean, I grind away on a tricky level for about 5 minutes, and I'm through.
