Help Attorney General Lisa Madigan bust through the political red tape and serve Illinois Governor Blagojevich with impeachment papers.

Same as Blago Run, we were sitting in the office one day joking about games to make fun of things in the headlines and Blago happened to get arrested that day.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

decent enough

it definately needs sound, but thats fairly obvious

also, the whole point of the game is to try to catch blago. you do not need to clear away all the red tape to do that. you get 50 points for each peice of red tape you eliminate but arent awarded any points for the peices left when you catch blago. this seems to contradict the point of the game, to get points you need to actually avoid catching blago until you have cleared all the red tape. i would suggest giving the player atleast 100 points for each peice of red tape that is left when you catch blago, so that way the player is motivated to catch blago ASAP isntead of avoiding him until the end.

Nice game but...

For some reason, your sound is not working in this game, you should always be sure to check that sort of thing before submitting, other than that , it's a nice political piece, and a nice arkanoid remake.

Sorry El-Syd,
We did not put any sound in the game as we were pressed for time (prior to Blago's impeachment) I will make a note of this though for an updated version

Nice game, but.....

I think it goes without saying that this needs audio (unless my comp. isn't working right, which I believe it is).

Very origional work, Breakout with a new twist. Excellent.
Love the use of recent events as the concept and rawing was very stylish.
A couple of things to consider:
- When you lose a life, it says 'Click for next ball', when youre bouncing around paper.
- When the paper hits the side of a piece of red tape, it should bounce horizontally, not verticaly, as at the moment it is possible to obliterate 2 or 3 rows by hitting it up the left/right side.
- Its quite hard to see which part of your character will actually reflect the paper (or ball). Try adding some sort of indication, like a bar with the 'Glow' filter and 'Knockout'.

Overall 7/10

neat little breakout/arkanoid clone

When you launch the ball, it goes perfectly strait up. This makes it possible to bounce the ball indefinately without any effort on the players part and just wait for Blago to walk into it. You may want to have the very first "ball" launched at a random angle to prevent this.
