Flash Game Based on Filipino Bus Tragedy Getting Ripped

August 25, 2010 -

While the turnaround time of Flash games based on popular news events is generally rather amazing, one such game based on the recent hostage tragedy that occurred on a bus in the Philippines earlier this week is drawing criticism.

A disgruntled ex-policeman named Rolando Mendoza boarded a bus of tourists in Manila in a misguided attempt to win his job back. After a long standoff, which the consensus says was mismanaged, police finally stormed the bus and killed Mendoza, but not before he murdered eight of the tourists, all of whom were from Hong Kong.

The game based on this event is named Bus Hostage by Policeman and appears on the Newgrounds site, where it has received scathing reviews (0.95 out of 5.00) and comments, for both its subject matter and buggy, awful gameplay. The game itself has players attempting to shoot Mendoza through the windows of the bus, asking participants “Can you stop him and blow his brain?”

Among the comments:

I am new here, but I agree with you. I am a Hong Kong guy, and it is outraging to see some cold-blooded people making this sort of crap for a game…

please revise your game, this one's insulting. for every Filipino's sake.. kindly do.

I'm a Filipino but I don't appreciate what you have made because you're not just insulting us you're including the others too

Turd of the month maybe!!!!!!!!!!

This aint fun, it is clear you have no respect for the people who died in the tragedy. And the game is bad too...

I am saddened by the death of the people, etc. but its just a crappy flash game. People need to get over it.

Re: Flash Game Based on Filipino Bus Tragedy Getting Ripped

The only thing that bothers me is the fact that the game is poorly made and not fun to play.

It will probably be blammed off of Newgrounds, so no worries.

Re: Flash Game Based on Filipino Bus Tragedy Getting Ripped

It's got 2333 votes, so it's well past the blam stage.  Per Newground's FAQ, it needs a ranking of 1.0 at 100 votes, 1.25 at 150 votes, and 1.60 at 200 votes.  Even though it's currently under even the lowest blam threshold, it presumably had a high enough rating at the key points necessary for survival.

Playing Devil's Advocate here: excluding the apparently dire gameplay quality, what's the difference between this and players acting as Taliban members in Medal of Honor?

It´s a stupid and tasteless game, but it doesn´t affect to anybody. In any case it is an insult toward the murderer.

InfophileSomething weird was going on with that comment. As soon as I posted it, it looked like it had replies from the past. And now I can't even find it. Ah well, it was getting off-topic for that thread anyway.10/01/2014 - 4:29am
Sleaker@CraigR been using Win8.1 for a while, I don't really see any usability difference between it and 7 (Work uses 7)10/01/2014 - 2:16am
Craig R.Ok, my internal debate was short-lived. If Win10 is still a year out, I'm not waiting that long for an SSD, so on Win7 I will remain.09/30/2014 - 7:52pm
