Program hangs up right on the starting screen on my G5. Only exit was to turn off the mac.

Not good.

Smooth as a gravy sandwich.

Slick commentary that will turn any casual gamer looking to kill an hour into an expert on Labour Party leadership, if nothing else. Lead John (or is it Moe??) Howard to another Liberal victory!! Needs a tweak on level 3, even in the low res version.

Cool background picture and funny sprites do not make a game. Many of the jokes are about NZ politics and just go over my head.

Squander your way through a campaign or blunder your way through the five unique subplots individually.

Can you, armed only with a keen inability to perceive events around you:
  • Keep your foreign policy intact by avoiding jelly wrestling Dali Lamas?
  • Backflip around conflict of interest questions, and nail Bradman to your white picket fence?
  • Bounce the barrels of pork into your marginal electorates?
  • Avoid conceding that refugees are not in fact Insect-like-Battledoids?
  • Plausibly deny being briefed on any of this?
The levels are heavily influenced by arcade and puzzle classics, but with degrees of bitterness previously thought to exist only in theory.
