This was, of course, inevitable. After children’s books, songs by would-be “political” rappers (and friends!) and face-lifts for outdated American currency, it was only a matter of time before President-Elect Obama dipped his toe in the 16-bit pool. Enter “Super Obama World,” a platforming adventure starring everyone’s favorite 44th President of the United States. As in its predecessors, “Super Mario World” and “SMW 2: Clinton’s Island”,” the controls are relatively simple: run right, run left, jump. (Like Mario, Obama’s got ups.) Easy to play but hard to put down, this just-released game will quickly become your favorite antidote to workday depression.
Here’s Nintendo’s description:
Use your keyboard to navigate our hero through a bleak Alaskan snowscape, dodging rogue wardrobe racks and lipstick-smeared pigs as you make your way to Wasilla and a showdown with Governor Sarah Palin. Bowser? He was a lamb compared to this fresh-faced mother of five. Can she be stopped? Armed with slick black duds and Zen-like calm, become Super Obama and save our country today*!
* Nintendo does not guarantee that America will be saved by Super Obama today. Or tomorrow.
(Editor’s Note: Now you know where I was these past two weeks!)
… Because nothing says “change” like a classic winter cap emblazoned with a miscolored Fruit Loop. Thanks, Joe Biden!
