Some background. And sorry, but that Superman photo of Obama to the left of the game is fuckin' FREAKY.

Why do the gimpy gagged pigs?

There are some cool game aspects to this as well. In true Mario-style, if you stomp enemies consecutively without touching the ground, you get more and more points.

In the third level, there are enemies that give 150,000 points per stomp. It might be a good idea to try to work those into such a chain.

I expect a boss level where Ted Stevens throws fire at me. Don't disappoint me, internet.

Seems like a whole lot of work for some pretty thin satire.

Have you played Super Mario Galaxy? It was after finishing every level in the game and then encountering the fucking purple comment coin collecting levels that I realized that Mario is only meant for obsessive compulsives, or kids.

This is AWESOME.

It's cute that you can

dead-end on the Bridge to Nowhere. I totally should have seen that coming.

I found the level design uninspired. What's up with that bridge to nowhere in the first level?

...Oh, I get it now.

It also took a minute to realize I was collecting American Flag pins.

Why do they start with an ice level? That's not how it's done.

Well, what do you expect given the map?
posted by mendel at 4:46 PM on November 17, 2008


Um, is anyone else finding this a little hard? Some of the levels are way too vertical, and the ice makes it relatively unforgiving.

The level design is uninspired, it's wonky and hard on a keyboard, and the lack of power-ups is really damning.

That being said, it's a cute idea that needed just a little more work.

Rahm will make a bad ass pixl when they bring out the wii version...

I love how it says "Game completion we can believe in!" when you win a level.

Thanks for posting this.

Jokes aside, ever since I found this a couple of weeks ago, I've been increasingly wishing they'd put it on the wii. That and make a tennis game that is more extensive but still as fun as the one on Wii sports. If I see Elisa and Sarah one more time, I'll flip. Of course, playing with a friend as Hillary and me as Barack, it was fun going through the rounds and pretending the old dude with the red glasses was mccain, Jessie and Jackie were Jessie Jackson, and so on. Playing left handed kicked my ass though.

When should we expect Kaizo Obama World?

Super Obama World? More like Obama Sisters, AMIRITE?
posted by Effigy2000 at 5:42 PM on November 17, 2008


Seriously though, that was kinda fun for a couple of minutes but pointless. I do appreciate the post. I'm dissapointed there was no button to make him run however, which is what Obama did after all. ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

I keep missing my piece of the pie.

I love the fact he chases pie, actually.

The scenery is beautiful. Though there are mountains on the horizon, we will conquer them.

The lapel pins should give points; coins did in Mario.

Wooooooops. Sick day tomorrow!

The pie is a lie.
