A downloadable game for Windows

Get those fingers and brain meats ready, It's time to SYNCHRONIZ!

It's a mad dash against the clock and your own coordination to collect all the Smiley Boys™ before time runs out!

Control both players by yourself or team up with a friend to test your synchronization!


SynchroniZ has been updated to the new and spiffy Version 2.0, which addresses a number of issues both I and players had with the original release. This new version is much cleaner and more approachable, so I hope you give it a shot! 

For more info on Version 2.0 changes, see the dev log below.

Technical Notes

1. Windows thinks it's a virus:
I promise you! It's not! It's just a GameMaker executable, but for some reason Windows sometimes flags them as viruses.  To be able to play the game, you need to create an exception in Windows Defender for the folder the game is located

2. The game plays too fast:
This one's on GameMaker, but if you run into issues with the game running too fast, you'll need to manually set your monitor's refresh rate to 60hz and/or force VSync in your videocard's settings.

This game is cool. I like the mechanics. I played the original version and it was really interesting, but challenging in kind of a grueling way. The updated version is pretty breezy in comparison, so I had fun playing through multiple times to try to get better at the game. Can you beat my record of 3 deaths?

Thank you so much for giving my game so much of your time. I'm happy you enjoyed it!


1CC get 😎 The Version 2.0 changes are really classy, I like this take a whole lot. I think the changes bring out the best in the story and make the game into something way more folks can enjoy.


Took a lot of lives but I bested all the boys 😎 Very fun and extremely stylish action, it was a joy to watch this one come together. 


awesome game!  Sadly I am not yet a bad enough dude to rescue all the Smiley Boys™

I believe you will be one day!
