Game: GPS Ghost Hunt

You are a small human in a cap running around avoid ghosts and looking for safety. You physically tilt the controller to make it move. You have a few hearts of life. You can collect hearts, to live longer. Each level is timed. You have 8 seconds to get to safety. Why the Updated Plan: Ran out of memory, need to pick a ChipKit board, or optimize memory usage. Original Plan In this health game ghosts are hunting you down as your are tracked by a GPS unit. Those ghosts find you a steal energy out of your heart then you die. If you are lucky and survive the combat you collect hearts for more life. This is an outdoor GPS game that has an option heart/pulse logger that you can use to review how the game was played.
