We Can't Stop!

This game is a sidescrolling jump-n-run game (in a similar style to Super Mario) for two players, who cooperatively try to reach the goal area - with a special twist: they both share a fixed total speed. When one player accelerates, the other player decelerates. When one player wants to stop, they force the other player to go full speed. It is never possible for both players to stand still at the same time. Together, they have to solve puzzles of buttons, locks and moving platforms to reach their goal.
