A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

Alpha 1.0

Impulse Arena is a fast-paced deathmatch platformer for two to four players. Master the pulse-pack to outmaneuver your opponents and deliver the killing blow.

Currently, there is no single-player or networked multiplayer mode, so at least one controller is required to play the game. I recommend an Xbox 360 controller.

This is an open alpha of the game, so any and all feedback is much appreciated (divforgegames@gmail.com).
