Want some heart-stopping indie game browser action? That’s right, you don’t need to buy anything, sign-up for anything, hold anything. Just press X or C on your keyboard and you are off on a super-fast, nerve-tingling, heart-thumping run for freedom with CANABALT, a black and white, 8-bit inspired work of awesomeness with a great ominous electronic ambient musical score to boot.

The better you do, the faster and more hectic our escape becomes, not that you’ll ever get a break to figure that out.  Watch out for that oil barrel, or that 50 foot jump off the side of a building!

Who knew that a pixelated side-scroller could be as much fun as Parkour in a war zone?  How much fun would this be on an iPad (featuring 60fps graphics)? Also, CANABALT is one of five nominees for best game at this year’s Webby Awards.
