I am warning you now. This is sick. A little flash where you are the Suicide Bomber.

Ever played some of those racing games where you have to run people over, blow up school buses and ambulances, etc? This flash is tame in comparison. Odd though.

There's no strategy to it. I couldn't figure out a way to get all the people on the screen at the same time. I understand the political point the designer of the game is perhaps trying to convey ("blowing up people is unfun!"), but as an actual functioning game it pales in comparison to most everything. Insaniquarium is infinitely better and doesn't try to hit one over the head with shallow political tripe.

There is a strategy. Find a group of people (say 3) walking in a group. Women seem to do this more than men. Follow them.

Note that men move faster than women. So what you're going to do is walk with the women, wait for a group to come from the direction your walking AND for a man to overtake your group. If you time it right you can take out about 7 people. That's the most I could do.

Well that has given everyone here a goal for the rest of the day. Max body count.

I had someone ask me; "who thinks of this stuff?"
Hmmm. Easy answer on the tip of my tongue

Best I could do so far is 8 dead and one injured.

I'm not sure how the scoring works, but I think my high score is as follows: dead: 2 men, 3 women, 0 child - injured: 2 men, 1 woman, 1 child.

It's harder, and therefore more rewarding, to try and hurt no-one. 0 dead, 1 injured man.

Good point Liam. I will try it your way now.

This is almost as much fun as that game where the tanks roll in and slaughter families in their homes.

WOPR was the computer in "WarGames". The judges also would have accepted "Joshua".

You need to be slapped across the lips with some hot, chewy bacon.
