Brazilian videogame portraits Rousseff as hero that fights evil zombie Serra
The aggressive electoral campaign that is currently taking place in Brazil on the verge of the October 31 presidential runoff vote has now moved to the virtual world as an already controversial videogame called "Dilma Adventure" has been released in the neighbouring country.
The game shows the Workers' Party (PT) and polls' favourite as a super hero that must fight the evil Democratic Party's candidate and former Sao Paulo governor José Serra, who curiously appears as a zombie dressed all blue, and a flock of toucans which are the symbol of Serra´s party.
Following the same patterns of the 1983 classic Nintendo videogame Mario Bros, a tiny dressed in red Rousseff must advance through numerous dangers present at the electoral campaign.
Rousseff's character collects red stars (PT's symbol) which can be thrown at enemies as it moves through.
Furthermore, the tiny Rousseff must collect ballot boxes in order to gain points, energy, and most important the so needed votes for runoff vote.
The game was created and developed by Brazilia software company "Give Me Five", which have informed on its Twitter account that since the games' release (two day ago) more than 600,000 people have played online.
