Happy Hearts Erupt (With Love) is a competitive two player game based on the theme of ‘heartbeat’. The object is to push the other player into the wall of the arena. To do this the players must first build up their “love” by tapping a button along to the rhythm of a heartbeat that plays while the game is running. Once a player has sufficient ‘love’ built up, he can release it from his character’s heart in a laser like eruption (think of the Care Bear Stare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1Jk4cg5hW0). This laser of love will push the other player around the screen hopefully forcing him into the wall and ending the game. The players can run around, jump and hide among objects in the space making for a frantic game of cat and mouse. To make things more difficult the walls of the arena constantly close in on both players, and the heartbeat governing the generation of ‘love’ gets faster and faster. This ensures that any one match never lasts too long and makes for frantic stressful gameplay.
