EDIT-- LOOKING BACK, I think this game was a pretty easy target, and what I should've done was make a game that made fun of all the ridiculous philanthropy of people on Twitter like SIGN THIS PETITION IF YOU LIKE FREEDOM and THE GOVERNMENT CAN BURN IN HELL!!!!!!
Cos that's more what I think about when I see people talking about this. I should've highlighted the fact that everyone's screaming n shouting against SOPA, even though you never see one comment that's like "i dunno guys, it sounds like a pretty good idea to me!"
Every goof on twitter turned into a white knight in shining armour fighting against THE TRYANNY OF GOVERNMENT overnight, and it would've bin a lot smarter, more observant and unique of me to make a game about that.

I mean yknow... pretty good for like an hour of work, but I think it would've bin more genuine of me to make a game that pulled everyone's pants down while they were standing on their stupid soapbox. The truth is that I think this twitter-mob mentality is a lot more interesting, relevant, and funny than this SOPA game.
"STOP SOPA" was the new "Arrow to the knee" for a second there.

it a good concept

I would done some research on some more things that SOPA and IPA could banned and then made a series of levels that would have content blocked
I think it would have made a better point

Probably doesn't belong on the front page

I appreciate this, and it actually did make me laugh. However, I don't think this really deserves a spot on the front page.

One of the previous reviewers (the one that you completely tore apart) mentioned that a flash movie/game can become much more popular than it normally would have, considering the effort it took to make it, if it pertains to a topic in current events. This game, is an example.

PS: I am pretty positive that I removed all the blocks, but nothing happened, as you implied in a previous review.

Oh, yeah Tom puts topically relevant stuff on the front page. He does it for April Fools Day and Christmas n all sorts of stuff, it's no big secret.
I'm not here to cheese my way to Daily 5th or anything, I just literally made this in like half an hour on the day and thought it was funny.
Yeah nothing happens if you win, the joke is the censor bar. That's the joke.

The funny thing is that I barely care about all this SOPA stuff, and this game's clearly preaching to a choir that's already chose their side. If anything, I accidentally made a game that's in SUPPORT of SOPA, because it's censoring a free emulated version of Arkanoid, which is a copyright-protected game.

I think the way everyone's jumping on this FREEDOM bandwagon is pretty hilarious, as if every average joe is a white knight in shining armour cos he said YO MAN PIRATE BAY IS FUCKIN SICK, THE GOVERNMENT CAN EAT A DICK!!
I changed my company's twitter avatar to "SOPA RULES!!!" and tweeted about how we support sopa and everyone else can fuckin sit on it, and that got some funny reactions. I was genuinely surprised that nobody else was doing that joke.

Looking back, I wish I would've made a game that made fun of how the internet was reacting to this whole thing. I think that would've been smarter, more true to what I was actually thinking about, and more unique. Making a game about internet censorship was juts a pretty easy target.
BUT I made it in like 30 minutes, so WHATA YA GONNA DO lol!
