While the world is watching Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his Republican counterpart John McCain snipe at each other in campaigns and televised discussions, teenagers across the world are making them slug it out virtually in an online game called "Big Fight".
The online game pits the two presidential hopefuls in a boxing ring, dressed formally in full-sleeved shirts and ties. If Obama is accusing McCain of launching "swift boat-style attacks" in their highly-publicised campaigns, the game gives them the choice to pummel each other by unleashing a flurry of karate chops, wrestling-style jump kicks, ground and flying kicks and punches.
Launched recently by 7Seas Technologies, a Hyderabad-based online gaming website, the US presidential knockout game has been rated four stars by users. At any given time, at least 30 players are on the Obama vs McCain game where the target score is 5,00,000 points.
The managing director of the portal, L M Shanker, says, "This funny and ferocious fighting game on US politics has Obama and McCain vying for the President's seat through a bout. To play this game, the player needs to select his favourite leader and attack the opponent using various fighting techniques."
Bonus styles of fighting will be awarded to players performing well. When one level is successfully completed, the player will get more powerful fighting tactics, and in the process more scores. When the opponent loses his fighting ability, the victor gets a 'Congrats'. And, all a player gets to win over his opponent is only three lives, failing which the game will be over.
Targeted at youths in the US, the game is currently available on onlinerealgames.com and,in a week's time, on over 50 other portals.
