Brief Play Description: 

Pulse is a rhythm game that requires the two players to react to the beat and get as far way from each other as possible. The player is pushed away when he/she presses the button according to the beat. The growing distance from the middle line is rewarded by an increased amount of visual and auditive stimuli.

Pressing the button on the wrong time is indicated by static sound and results in a penalty push towards the middle line.

Power-ups are also available by slowing down, or speeding up the beat. By doing this the players character is able to collide with the power-ups.
