Just a little bit of fun at the hysteria caused by 'Swine Flu' ... coded this up yesterday just to take a break from Swords & Sandals IV. Here's our someone contrived premise:

"Join the first line of defence against the deadly Swine Flu plague that is about to decimate the world. We've got to get these pigs as far away from Mexico as we can - grab a pig and start throwing!"

Click/drag to throw mouse, click again to fire bullets into poor piggy.

** Been reading a lot of the reviews here, a lot of accusations of racism are being banded around - my answer is this : When you want to convey a scene in a cartoon style game, you often use stereotypes and cliched characers. Had this game been set in France, the main character would have a beret and a croissant / Germany would have a guy in a lederhausen. No worse than you're going to get in an average episode of "South Park". This is not meant to reflect reality.

As I pointed out in a reply to a review earlier - I think Mexico sounds like a vibrant, brilliant place steeped in culture and with fantastic music , a laid back attitude and great cuisine. Fact is, if you're going to do a game set in Mexico, of course you're going to have stereotypes of cactuses and sombreros - otherwise it's a generic desert, it might as well be in the Gobi Desert.

The ultimate aim of the game was to point out the media frenzy surrounding the virus and how people get caught up in the hystera without really knowing the facts.. Anyway, if you're offended, apologies but lighten up and relax - the world is full of light and shade. - Oliver **

Cheers to the Newgrounds Crew for making Frontpage, as always , much obliged...

Err.. In defence of the creator.

It's funny the first time. And, It's the same as the regular flu, except for the fact that animals can get it too. Animals can get it because of all of the human-like things we feed them. It's no more dangerous than the regular influenza. So just cool your panties, everyone. Give the author a break, okay? But, to be honest, the game isn't that funny or fun at all.. Maybe the first time around it's okay. And that's just my opinion. Shopping Kart Hero was more fun than this because you can buy shit Oh and, lancedason It isn't a disease. If you think it's a disease, you're a dumbass. And it isn't just Americans that are stupid, although we are because of our corrupt education system and the way that our government thinks that the way they run things is better, but not EVERYONE in America is a dumbass. Like me, for example. I'm aware of how corrupt my country is. Does that make me a dumbass? And what makes you so sure that the person typing that review was an American?
