I suppose that in today’s world of instant technology it would only make sense that developers would come to market with a number of apps designed to capitalize on the sad plight of Toronto partial mayor Rob Ford. So toady we check out the apps.
The first one we found is called “Stay Mayor!”.
The object is to help Rob Ford raise funds to buy the alleged crack video by running across a football field, dodging reporters with microphones outstretched and narrowly missing cameras, as Toronto’s city hall silhouettes in the background.
Users are forced to dodge crack pipes and collect buckets of deep-fried foods in order to get their hands on footballs to heave at the mobs of media personnel trying to get in the mayor’s way.
The goal: To “stay mayor.”
If you should lose the game by stepping on too many crack pipes or bumping into too many cameras, then a message appears that reads, “Bunch of maggots” – a term the mayor used to describe the media on his weekly radio show, which he later apologized for.
User comments at Google Play seem to back Ford saying things like this is just another attack on a wonderful mayor.
A second new game is called “Rob Ford Mash” Players have an opportunity to vent their anger on him by in this Toronto rendition of Whack-A-Mole, complete with custom sounds!
On oldie moldy from last year is called “Is Ford Still Mayor”. This handy app will allow you to quickly check Rob’s mayoral status, along with the date of the next mayoral election.
This app requires a network connection to check for Rob’s mayoral status. It does not collect or transfer any user information.
In all fairness, there is a forth app focusing on Rob Ford. It’s one that he spearheaded last year so that individuals could report unsightly graffiti directly to city hall, part of Ford’s Clean up Toronto campaign. User comments for this app tend to be more personal attacks against Ford, highlighting the verbosity of Ford’s opponents in the GTA.
After looking at these games, collectively, you would have to ask yourself why anybody would want to go into Canadian politics.
