Dodge the Shoe – George W gets a flash game

Shame it’s not very good.

T-Enterprise have been incredibly quick of the mark making a Flash game based on the Iraqi reporter who threw a shoe at George W. Bush. (if you haven’t seen the clip, it’s embedded below.)

Unfortunately, I don’t think the implementation is very good: the control method is difficult and the gameplay (shooting shoes flying away from you, with dodgy physics) is really rather difficult.

Absolutely full marks to the team for speed and topicality, though – for games to be making a satirical/political point is excellent news for our ongoing campaign for universal acceptance.
