Unfortunately, I have a hospital appointment this morning and don't anticipate returning home until this afternoon, so won't have time to moderate until later today.. :)

Installation Issues:
Wt Boy downloads to a 36.8 MB zip file that unzips to two files, (an unwrapped and free standing set-up file and a read me document). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is 268 MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Wt Boy
Five shortcuts are installed to the desktop, four of which can be safely deleted (i.e. Falco Space - Online Game!, FalconLine Online Games Website, FalcoGo WebGL Games! and Free Games Downloads!).

The Game:
I used to love playing Super Meat Boy (SMB) and sometimes return to it when I'm feeling in the mood for some hard core platforming. Well! Wt Boy is a super watered down copy of SMB and IMO not done very well either. You have 20 levels to navigate through, each level has gold to collect, which is cumulative as you progress through the levels. Touching certain area's of the platform such as the revolving saws and spiked pits kill you instantly and you have to start from the beginning of the level you died on. All gold earned from previous levels is retained, but you lose any gold earned from the level you died in. You can check out all levels from the outset, but you can only play the first level to start, i.e. all but level one are locked. There is no save function, so, if you close the game down, you have to start from the beginning , even if you completed several levels previously.
The aim of the game is to get from level 1 to level 20 without dying. Keyboard controls are simple. The arrow keys control your movement and the Q key allows you to move faster in the last direction you used w.r.t the arrow keys (only left and right keys). I found the controls a little sluggish which made movement difficult a times, though if you can get used to using the Q key, it does help to move onto platforms. Especially trying to jump and move to the right seemed particularly difficulty, unless you use the Q key, but you have to make sure its oriented correctly w.r.t. the last movement you made, otherwise you'll find your Wt boy is moving in the wrong direction. As you progress through the levels they become more convoluted/maze like and difficult to navigate, though you do not have to collect all the gold coins to progress to the next level. Level five introduces a red colored character (that looks a little like Super Meat Boy), though this is not present in all the following levels. I gave up on the game from level 7 and booted up my old copy of super Meat Boy (which was advertised here and in the giveaway forums as free via Epic Games a few weeks ago, but that deal is no longer available.)

Conclusion:
Wt Boy is a very poor imitation of Super Meat Boy; however, it is still a playable game, despite the clunky controls and lack of a save feature. Although sold as a hardcore platformer, I was able to get to level 7 with hardly any difficuly, though I didn't claim all the gold on each level. It's definitely not hardcore. It's worth downloading if you enjoy playing platformers, but don't expect a serious challenge.

Well at least the programmer of this game does not need to hire a graphic artist. This game also proves that you don't need a lot of flashy graphics to enjoy the game.
