Sidetrack time: Super Tory Boy
Is austerity a bit too much to handle at the moment? Have you ever wondered what it is like to be on the other side of austerity?
Well now you can with a free flash game over on usvsth3m.com. Super Tory Boy is a curious adaptation of Super Mario Bros with Mario and Luigi replaced by Tory bigwigs David Cameron, George Gideon Osborne and Boris Johnson.
In the game you jump around collecting money, stomping on the heads of 'plebs', closing public libraries and privatising hospitals. At the end of the game you are rated by how much money you've scored and earn a position in the current UK government.
For my score of 9,923,760 GBP with Boris I earned the position of Junior Minister within the coalition government.
