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!
