Perfect Strangers Video Game

The hilarious late '80s/early '90s sitcom Perfect Strangers now has a video game! A new flash web game in 3D has hit the internet and gone viral! The game features Balki (Bronson Pinchot) running with his back facing the screen, collecting stars as the show's famous theme song plays in the background, USA Today reports. It is quite unique and Balki has to battle the elements of every word in the theme song, including rain, thunder, wind and haze! The game starts with players typing in the dream they want Balki to chase. Once the theme kicks in, Balki speeds through crazy environments from a field with sheep to a rainbow bridge with images of the Perfect Strangers cast (Larry, Balki, Jennifer, Mary Anne) flying by like billboards. Players hit the space bar to jump and the arrow keys to control Balki, collecting stars along your journey. Scores are then tabulated and slapped on a leaderboard. You can even see dreams posted by other players, such as "snorkle in a pool of chocolate" and "become a unicorn farmer."
The game is created by Jason Oda. Head on over to play the game, it's quick and actually addicting! Don't give up on your dreams because Balki will help you chase your dreams! Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now!
