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.

Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm

NeenekoAh yes, because by building something nice they were just asking for people to come push them out. Consequences are protested all the time when other people are implementing them.04/17/2014 - 2:06pm
Matthew Wilsonok than they should not protest when the consequences of that choice occur.04/17/2014 - 1:06pm
NeenekoIf people want tall buildings, plenty of other cities with them. Part of freedom and markets is communities deciding what they do and do not want built in their collective space.04/17/2014 - 12:55pm
Sora-ChanI realize that they have ways getting around it, but one reason might be due to earthquakes.04/17/2014 - 4:42am
Matthew WilsonSF is a tech/ economic/ trade center it should be mostly tail building. this whole problem is because of the lack of tail buildings. How would having tail apartment buildings destroy SF? having tail buildings has not runed other cities around the US/world04/16/2014 - 10:51pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the issue is you can not build upwards anywhere in SF at the moment, and no you would not. You would bring prices to where they should have been before the market distortion. those prices are not economic or socially healthy.04/16/2014 - 10:46pm
ZippyDSMleeYou still wind up pushing people out of the non high rise aeras but tis least damage you can do all things considered.04/16/2014 - 10:26pm
ZippyDSMleeANd by mindlessly building upward you make it like every place else hurting property prices,ect,ect. You'll have to slowly segment the region into aeras where you will never build upward then alow some aeras to build upward.04/16/2014 - 10:25pm
Matthew WilsonSF have to build upwards they have natural growth limits. they can not grow outwards. ps growing outwards is terable just look at Orlando or Austin for that.04/16/2014 - 4:15pm
ZippyDSMleeIf they built upward then it would becoem like every other place making it worthless, if they don't build upward they will price people out making it worthless, what they need to do is a mix of things not just one exstreme or another.04/16/2014 - 4:00pm
Matthew Wilsonyou know the problem in SF was not the free market going wrong right? it was government distortion. by not allowing tall buildings to be build they limited supply. that is not free market.04/16/2014 - 3:48pm
ZippyDSMleeOh gaaa the free market is a lie as its currently leading them to no one living there becuse they can not afford it makign it worthless.04/16/2014 - 3:24pm
Matthew WilsonIf you have not read http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/introducing-steam-gauge-ars-reveals-steams-most-popular-games/ you should. It is a bit stats heavy, but worth the read.04/16/2014 - 2:04pm
Matthew Wilsonthe issue is when is doesn't work it can screw over millions in new york city's case. more often than not it is better to let the free market run its course without market distortion.04/16/2014 - 9:36am
NeenekoTrue, and overdone stagnation is a problem. It is a tricky balance. It does not help that when it does work, no one notices. Most people here have benifited from rent controls and not even realized it.04/16/2014 - 9:23am
