A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

It's impossible to decide which is the superior video format without violence, so grab your collection and chuck them at your opponent in this quick paced, insta-death platforming combat game. Play a succession of rapid quick-fire battles where you must dodge VHS tapes, block them with your shield, or toss them at the other player.
