Pixel Politics: Prime Minister's Questions - The Game

David Cameron gets zapping powers.

Editor's Pick

Prime Minister's Questions - the weekly public battle of wits between the British Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition - has become a retro-styled computer game, thanks to Mark Richards, who makes video-game style political cartoons on his blog, Pixel Politics.

Richards - who told the New Statesman that PMQ was inspired by the adversarial 'old Pokemon games' and 'Street Fighter'- created the game as a download for PC users. As David Cameron, you have to choose from formulaic replies and real-life replies in response to questions on areas such as education and health. Choose the wrong response and you lose points, but get it right, and Opposition Leader Ed Miliband gets zapped. With a real background soundtrack from Parliament, with MPs booing and cheering, you can feel like you're really in Westminster.

US developers take note - could an Obama and Boehner version be on its way?
