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.

Andrew EisenConster - Don't know. Got a link to whatever you're referring to?08/30/2014 - 7:04pm
ConsterWait, what's this about Leland Yee eliminating witnesses?08/30/2014 - 5:50pm
IanCBroke my EA boycott to pick up Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. Loving it. Still hate EA though. But i like Popcap. Gah.08/30/2014 - 6:01am
MaskedPixelantehttp://m.tickld.com/x/something-you-never-realized-about-guardians-of-the-galaxy Right in the feels.08/29/2014 - 6:56pm
AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
ZippyDSMleeI do not hate them jsut think its mostly hyperlobe.08/29/2014 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - I'd say that's likely. From my experience, most who have a problem with Sarkeesian's videos either want to hate them in the first place (for whatever reason) or honestly misunderstand what they're about and what they're saying.08/29/2014 - 3:16pm
james_fudgeWe appreciate your support :)08/29/2014 - 2:55pm
TechnogeekIt gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, the gaming community is not statistically indistinguishable from consisting entirely of people that your average Xbox Live caricature would look at and go "maybe you should tone it down a little bit".08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
TechnogeekI just want to say that while I've disagreed with the staff of this site on several occasions, it's still good to see that they're not automatically dismissing Anita's videos as a "misandrist scam" or whatever the preferred dismissive term is these days.08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, So you can't find even one?08/29/2014 - 1:04pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Right because shes prefect and never exaggerates... *rolls eyes*08/29/2014 - 12:53pm
SleakerAnd honestly, nearly all of the games she references, or images she depicts I've always cringed at and wondered why they were included in games to begin with, from pinups through explicit sexual depictions or direct abuse. I think it's cheap storytelling.08/29/2014 - 12:35pm
Sleaker@AE - aren't most people fundamentally misunderstanding her at this point? haha.. On a related note I think a lot of the backlash is coming from males that think she is telling them their 'Generic Male Fantasy' is bad and wrong.08/29/2014 - 12:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd no, I don't think the female community would be upset over the performance of a case study in and of itself. Possibly the mostivations behind such a study, the methodology or conclusions but not the mere idea of a case study.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
