A downloadable game for Windows

a 2 player endless runner!

Best experienced with 2 Xbox controllers

offering keyboard support as well.
In Boomer & Zoomer, player 1 plays as Zoomer (the dog) and player 2 plays as Boomer (the boomerang). Players will proceed down an endless route accumulating score, avoiding obstacles, and collecting ability tokens. Ability tokens help fuel both Boomer & Zoomer's abilities, whichever one of their 3 they choose to use. 

Work Together To:

  • Get the highscore!
  • Pop deadly water balloons!
  • Cut through inconvenient rope!
  • Navigate tricky obstacles!
  • Become better friends with your player 2

B & Z relies heavily on the input of a joystick for optimal play, as it allows much better (and the intended) control of movement & aim. However, the "How To Play" section of the menu lists both controls for Xbox controllers as well as Keyboard input.

This was a casual project made over Summer 2020 by Aidan Takami (Engineering & Design), Alan Karbachinsky(Design & Original Models/Textures), and Zoe Morfas (Composer). We really enjoyed making it, and hope you enjoy playing it!
