Game: Cardiac Arrest

Update 1-30-13: Game now updated to 'finished' version with obstacle collisions, additional animations and restart. Not sure if I'll work any more on this one... Update 1-28-13: Executable is now a zip archive including all the files needed to play the game. Unzip the contents and click on the "Cardiac Arrest" executable file to play. In this one-button endless runner, you are being chased by the police. Use any key or mouse button to pump your heart and get running. Control your running speed by slowing down or speeding up your heart rate. Keep your heart pumping to avoid cardiac arrest. Pump fast to revive yourself! This game was made in less than 24 hours as a side project while working on the Beat Brogrammers project Shockwave.


True Colors: The game uses only the basic 16 colors: black, gray, silver, white, maroon, red, olive, yellow, green, lime, teal, aqua, navy, blue, purple and fuchsia. See color chart
Inclusive: The game is specifically designed to include people with a given disability.
