A screenshot of the game

WARNING: This game is visually intensive and has rapidly changing colors.

Parallel Overhead is a colorful endless runner game where you take control of the ships Truth and Beauty on a groundbreaking trip through hyperspace. A stable hyperspace tunnel has finally been achieved with the two ships on opposite walls of the tunnel. Well, almost stable...

Parallel Overhead features Fast Pulse by oglsdl as its soundtrack.

Getting the game

The are two versions of the game: the web edition, which you can play in browser, and a native version written in C using SDL2, which is available on Codeberg and Github. The web edition source code is also available on Codeberg and Github.

Playing the game

Keep the ships from falling through the holes! The ships can be rotated clockwise with the left arrow key and anticlockwise with the right arrow key. The game can be paused/unpaused with space or enter, restarted with backspace and (for the native version) exited with escape.

The game can also be played with touchscreen taps (or mouse clicks). Tapping the left quarter of the game will rotate the ships clockwise while tapping the right quarter will rotate them anticlockwise. Tapping in the middle will pause or unpause the game.
