Dude, RUN! is a game made by Jarod Brennfleck in the class, 'Computer Systems Development Sem2'. The source code is freely available for anyone and everyone to look at - depending on whether someone deletes it or not. I consider it to be a good implementation of Game Design depending on whether the reader can follow the spaghetti code or not.
Using Adobe Flash Professional CS6 one can follow code execution by setting a breakpoint at the very first piece of runnable code; this line can be found on the top most layer in the game. One can also press the tilde/backtick (~/`) key on their keyboard to 'break' code execution to follow the execution flow. Do note, that to follow the execution flow, one must press
[Ctrl] + [Shift] + [Enter] to run the game in Debug Mode.
The music you hear while not running is the amazing work from Kevin MacLeod, Constance, and the music you hear while running is Movement Proposition, again, by Kevin Macleod. He has produced these songs under the Royalty Free License which allows anyone to use his music without the need to pay royalties or license fees (RF Wikipedia). I was tossing up between Macleod, and Approaching Nirvana, but I liked Macleod's sounds because they suit the theme of the game much more well.
There are three themes currently, a little less than planned but that was because I had run out of time. Adobe doesn't like Linux, and that is my main OS of use. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is used, but I could not develop the game any further while on transport or if I was away from school or home. However, I am proud of the themes I had come up with:
