Obama battles pigs in lipstick and Sarah Palin on a skidoo in novel new computer game

Since Senator Barack Obama was elected President of the U.S he has kept a low profile, appearing briefly on his way to the gym or on an official visit to the White House.

But it appears all this time he has been battling pigs in lipstick and collecting American flags in Alaska.

The 47-year-old is the hero of a new computer game called Super Obama World - a side-scrolling platform game in the style of classic 1990’s games such as Nintendo's Super Mario Bros.



In the first installment you guide President-elect Barack Obama through Sarah Palin's home state of Alaska, taking on pigs and pitbulls in lipstick, hockey moms, Russian soldiers, greedy oil-company executives, and evenutally Sarah Palin herself on a skidoo.


Like in the classic Super Mario series, you jump on enemies to knock them out of the game and earn points, and collect flag lapel pins to earn extra lives. The difficulty increases as you advance from level to level in the game.

It was created by three-man American company Zen Soft who are based in Wisconsin. Their motto is 'We Make It Fun' and players said they found the simple concept surprisingly addictive.



The game makes a number of digs at the Republican Party and Sarah Palin. It features luxury stores Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, in reference to the controversy that the Republican campaign reportedly spent £75,000 on the vice presidential candidates clothes.

Also early on Obama can take a wrong turn ending up at a dead end signposted 'Bridge to nowhere.'

It was revealed during the Presidential campaign that Ms Palin's transportation department completed a £12million gravel road even though the new bridge it was supposed to lead to had been scrapped by Congress.

Three more Alaska levels are planned, plus a series of levels in Illinois (Obama's home state), Arizona (McCain's home state), and Washington D.C.

The game can be played online www.superobamaworld.com from any computer with Adobe Flash Player version 9.0 or greater installed.
