[prMac.com] Rochester, New York - Play as the One Percent and appease the 'dependents!' As a One Percenter, users must respond to the angry mob of striking union workers, pregnant women, hungry citizens, and more! Class Warfare is a combination First Person Shooter (slingshotter, technically) plus Whack-A-Mole, and Augmented Reality (on camera equipped devices)!
It's a parody of the so-called "Class Warfare" that pits the One Percent against the working class. Whatever side you are on, you can enjoy the game that our so-called leaders play every day!
To appease each dependent, users must select the right tool to respond with. For example, when a striking worker appears, use the courts and throw the book (gavel) at them! For the poor guy in a barrel, throw money at the problem to spread the wealth around! Will work for food? Let them eat cake! Users can even offer an aspirin for a pregnant mom's healthcare needs! Users must choose wisely if the dependent is to be appeased. Choose incorrectly and the number of dependents will increase!
Left, right, center, it doesn't matter! Everyone can embrace the silly political arguments that each side makes and just enjoy the Class Warfare!
Finally, after six months of rejection, Apple finally approved Class Warfare, just one week before the election! Originally, funny quotes from famous politicians and pundits were spoken, such as these gems:
* "Spread the wealth around" (John McCain and Barack Obama)
* "I'm not concerned about the poor" (Mitt Romney)
* "Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees." (Foster Friess)
* "I will buy all of the women as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want." (Rush Limbaugh)
Those quotes had to be removed, and some of the language toned down, but the app is still fun and can be played by users on either side of the political spectrum. Whether users agree with the philosophy that aspirin is the answer to America's healthcare concerns, or that money can solve all problems, the one thing all Americans should agree upon is that Class Warfare is real and being waged every day. So vote early and vote often, and get Class Warfare, the app.
