Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

November 6, 2008 -

If the Obama honeymoon isn't over for you yet, check out Super Obama World.

For now you can play an Alaska level or head to the Republican National Convention. But more levels are promised, including Illinois, Arizona and Washington, D.C.

If you like the very 8-bit looking online platformer, they've got merch you can buy as well.

I couldn't get past the first stage....mainly cause I kept throwing Obama into the very first pit I came across.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

It's too bad the game is no fun.  Obamio moves WAY too slowly and the enemies move erratically, which is a frustrating combination in a one-hit-death game.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Thats hallirous and Ironic. I was going to send a link about this earleir becasue i found the game this morning. So many references to what happend in this election and this is a very fun game. Looking forward to the expansion of it.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Obama can't swim 0.o

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Not to be racist, but statistically could be true.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

But, everyone knows black people can swim, GTA told me!


Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Haha, after being on a swim team for many years, and African American family members, some are, most are not.  Of course I do have an bias view since I was on the swim team for many years.

I don't know how many people who were born and raised in NYC, LA, or bas-sack-nowhere and how good they typically swim.  It could just be that 1 out of 10 people can swim.

Wait, I taught swim lessons and life guarded them too...  Yeah, it just depends on what the parents raise them around in all honesty.  Not many people from the slums get to learn to swim.  Swim lessons cost an arm and a leg.  It doesn't matter what color your skin is, just around my area that stereotype is true most often.

Gone in 60 Seconds had a good quote that reinforced that stereotype too. "I can't swim, I know I can't. So you know what I do? I stay my black ass out the pool!"  Haha, that guy is so funny.  I know I can't dive, so I keep my skinny ass off the diving board.  I broke my nose last time I tried.  Of course I am straight, so that already hurts my odds.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

I'm sorry, but I simply have to get this off my chest. There are far too many so-called 'journalists' these days who seem to think that things like fact-checking and verification are optional. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to bring to light certain inaccuracies in this story.

 

It is not very '8-bit looking'...

 

It is supposed to be 16-bit looking.

 

Thank you.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, but you know what they mean.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

The art is pretty nice, they took thier time finding way to fit palin jokes. Level 3 is called "I can see Russia From my house!"

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Ok, Mario Sans power ups. Original mario.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Well yeah Leet, it's a Mario copy. Mario died in one hit.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

Actually, if you had al lthe right power ups he'd get as many as three.

Cape Mario FTW.

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

 Ya i think all the game needs are power ups and being able to swim... then it would be a nice match up to Mario

not sure what the power ups could be... perhaps something like

 

mushroom = Obama's symbol

Cape = American flag

fire flower = throw liberal newspapers at people

Star = Race card

XD

Re: Super Obama World: Play the Game, Buy the Shirt

I played one level and couldn't beat it. It's tough as friggin' nails. Although it's hilarious (USA flag lapel pins as coins, tiny pigs as Goombas and stompable women's clothing dressers giving out 150,000 points after their defeat), there's way too many ? blocks and you die in one hit.

Game on, brothers and sisters.

E. Zachary Knightquiknkold, I stand corrected on the buttcrack thing. Still, I know of no fabric that actually does that.09/17/2014 - 5:05pm
Andrew EisenSo... it's unethical to discuss the ethics surrounding public interest vs. personal privacy?09/17/2014 - 4:45pm
prh99The source for the game was just released not long ago, it's at https://github.com/keendreams/keen09/17/2014 - 4:43pm
prh99An Indiegogo champagin bought the rights to the early 90's game Keen Dreams to make it open source and release it on GOG etc. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/let-s-get-keen-dreams-re-released-legally09/17/2014 - 4:42pm

Andrew EisenI read the Kotaku story. Nowhere does it say anything close to "Gamers are white bigoted sexist losers." It's commenting specifically on the crap being slung at people discussing gender issues in games. So, what's the problem?09/17/2014 - 4:06pm
Andrew EisenYeah, I can imagine Spiderwoman posed like in your second link.09/17/2014 - 4:00pm
Andrew EisenThat's not the same pose. Spiderman (who is wearing an actual outfit rather than body paint) is crouched low to the ground. Kinda like a spider! Spiderwoman has her butt up in the air like she's waiting to be mounted.09/17/2014 - 3:59pm
quiknkoldAndrew Eisen : Kotaku did a whiole article on it, as did others http://kotaku.com/we-might-be-witnessing-the-death-of-an-identity-162820307909/17/2014 - 3:59pm
CMinerQuiknkold: Do you think that there are no cases where a piece of art (painting, movie, videogame, comic cover, etc) is unambiguously sexist?09/17/2014 - 3:58pm
quiknkoldand can you imagine if Spiderwoman was posed like this? http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/spider-man1.jpg09/17/2014 - 3:58pm
Andrew EisenWhat games outlet is writing articles saying "Gamers are white bigoted sexist losers"? What examples have you seen of journalists being paid off for favorable reviews? Who's shaming what now? What's the problem with critiquing the Spiderwoman cover?09/17/2014 - 3:57pm
james_fudgeWell there's def "politics" involved in this issue. The movement was hamstrung by bad behavior and illegal activites here. We would have covered it more if not for those unforutnate happenings.09/17/2014 - 3:56pm

quiknkoldJames_fudge : I feel like the people challenging Games are the same people who Challenge Art because Michaelangelo's David shows Wang. The problem is, alot of things with Games are left to the eye of the beholder. One Person see's Sexist Antiwomen views.09/17/2014 - 3:55pm
E. Zachary Knightquiknkold, I don't recall Spider-man's costume conforming to the contour of his buttcrack.09/17/2014 - 3:54pm
quiknkoldIts the same Agenda Fueled Journalism youd find on Fox News or MSNBC. I appreciate Gamepolitics for just stating the facts.09/17/2014 - 3:54pm
