Description

"Let us suppose now that one day a helicopter flies over this community and drops $1000 in bills from the sky..." - Milton Friedman

Your Government is dropping debt from the sky! Can you save what is left of the free market? Throw gold coins from the avatar of freedom to disrupt the cycle of spending for as long as possible before congressional pork destroys the country. But you must also be wary of an even greater threat; the giant Stimulus package that means Game Over for solvency!

Stimulus is a game inspired by the current economic misadventures of the United States government. Stimulus is designed to provide the player with both fun game play and humorous commentary on the economic follies of government over-spending.

In The Optimum Quantity of Money, famed economist Milton Friedman demonstrated that simply adding currency to solve recessions would fail. What Friedman didn't realize is that Stimulus isn't about fixing the economy, it's about getting largesse from the public treasury. In Stimulus government helicopters are dropping bags of bills from the sky, and if you don't knock them down they get picked up by congressmen and spent. When too much spending occurs, the game is over.

o Throw gold coins from the avatar of freedom

o Destroy bags of dollar bills and the helicopters that drop them

o Time your shots so that wreckage stops the greedy congressmen

o Beware the giant Stimulus package, which can quickly end the game.

Save the Country. Have fun!

5/5 stars

This game has almost everything

:
Great acheivments, fun game play, a very timely topic. The graphics are good and you quickly lose track of time as you play. The only thing I was wishing for while playing was that the little porkers running around snatching up all of my money were real congressmen to drop helicopters on top of.

5/5 stars

Fun update to a classic!

:
This is a fun little update to the classic gameplay from the Apple // game Sabotage. Nice graphics, and it's really fun to drop a bag of money or a helicopter on top of a congressman's head :) Game has good integration with OpenFeint as well, and the achievements are quite funny.

Definitely a game worth getting.
