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...

Not that bad

Come on Mexico its not a cradle of disease. I've got some friends in Mexico City and It's really in better conditions that some places in the South of the USA. In all Aspects . And the game is kind of funnny at the begging then it turns boring

Pigrific game.... lol

I like the game. I also like how you can take something bad and make something positive from it. And to all the morons who say ewww you made a mean game about something I already don't understand. Mexico has had some people die because of the conditions they have to live in and around. It's not a very sanitary country. The tourist spots are ok but other than that it sucks they have to live like that. The U.S. has had like 3 people die. So in other words fuck off if you don't know what your talking about.
