Choo Choo Like a Hobo is a daring escape / endless runner game created for GameJolt's Minimal Competition. The player controls a homeless person who has to escape by pumping a handcar while an angry train is in pursuit. It is set on a single track in a side-scrolling fashion. For Android pumping is done by tapping repeatedly. In the browser version the player needs to alternate between the arrow keys or press the right mouse button repeatedly. Homeless soup cans can be picked up for a boost. In the Android version these appear near the top of the screen, in the browser version they appear behind the angry train as it comes closer and need to be clicked. The game is in black-and-white and uses the visual style of the early Walt Disney movies. After being caught or getting cramped fingers, the distance traveled is shown. The browser version has three difficulty levels. The Android version includes a donation section to tip the developer.
