Bailout Madness

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (68 votes)

After debating several very literal takes on the game design adjective given, slippery, we eventually decided on something more tongue-in-cheek.

Bailout Madness is a single player, top down, score/collection based game. You are an agent for a major American corporation and the U.S. Treasury has been throwing sacks of bailout cash onto the streets of Washington D.C. Watch out for the auditors and stash away as much as you can in 5 minutes. Don't get too greedy or risk being caught! Or, take a chance... you might just slip by!

Brief Play Description: 

Use WASD to run around the streets of Washington D.C., collecting sacks of bailout cash and avoiding auditors. Drop the cash off at your headquarters (the big building in the middle of the map) to add it to your stash and rack up your score. Auditors will try to stop you; three hits from them and you lose all the cash you were carrying! Pile as much cash as you can in your HQ by the end of 5 minutes, and compete for the biggest score!
