Passage™. Canabalt™. Two masterpieces of the indie game world. But what would happen were they to join forces? Passagebalt™ finally answers this question... and the answer is "the most amazing game of all time".
Passagebalt™. Because Life is a Race™.
In the original version, SXMS (or possibly Game Maker) is super-buggy. If you get an error message, try playing one of the other versions! The game also starts out of focus, probably because of the SID player I implemented out of pure foolish desire.
The HTML5 versions run a lot slower, but I feel they still communicate the idea sufficiently. The font is also way uglier in the HTML5 version as GameMaker HTML5 refused to scale it to the size I wanted. The music doesn't seem to loop in these versions, so try not to play for more than 2 minutes!

Now powered by physics, the Passage series is back with a spine-tingling new installment! THRILL as your low-resolution avatar converts a golf course into a skate park and skates with the power of his own mind! Grind rails! Go off sweet ramps! Ram golf balls into holes! GRIND ON YOUR OWN HEAD. Anything is possible in Passage 18. ANYTHING. And yes, that is a legally binding statement.
Another hit in the seminal "Passage" series of games, Passage 9 uses the patented "Meaning Through Play" method to teach you all about what's going on inside your body!
