2020 Wheelchair Gladiator

I have been a little distracted from my book while making a computer game, 2020 Wheelchair Gladiator. It has many players from my family, including the dogs. Everyone rides a wheelchair and has two weapons, one that hits and one that shoots.

There are about 30 weapons, 10 characters and 12 wheelchairs. It's a two player battler.

In the heat of battle at the purple stage.

It can actually be played online at

The game only works with an actual computer, so no mobile devices, needs a keyboard and will only work on Safari or Google Chrome. Chrome, is the fastest browser out there, especially when using the JavaScript language, which I used to make this game.

It will not work on Firefox or Internet Explorer. If you do play the game however, you can play as a dog riding in a wheelchair with triangular wheels while hitting people with shark-chucks and shooting stars and stripes out of a patriotic dinosaur hand puppet... amongst other things.

The game is controlled using the keyboard
