Shake Back to Life is a 2D arcade racing game for everyone who loves to laugh. Race against another player to the finish line by wiggling your hips to outrun the opponent and shake fins to turn and explore new routes. 

Originally the game is controlled by alternative physical inputs - a tail and fins. By wiggling your hips side to side you accelerate your fish and by shaking either the left or right fin you turn in that chosen direction. In the game you are swimming through a cave avoiding obstacles to try to find the best route.  

To play on your laptop controls are:

Purple fish
A & D to turn, spam W to accelerate
Orange fish
Right & Left arrow to turn, spam Up arrow to accelerate
