Mr Whippy: Whiplash And Burn

By Kieron Gillen on May 4th, 2010.

Okay, this bumps into the same conflict of interest as last time – i.e. I’m currently working for Littleloud and Marvel Comics – but I’m going to power right on through because this is incredibly stupid and amused me terribly. It’s another Unity-powered Webgame based on the new Iron Man film. It’s somewhat simpler than the last rail-shooter, being based around that scene-from-the-trailer where Whiplash stands in the middle of a racetrack and whips cars in two with big electric-lash-things. It involved tapping right or left in tip to smash up the speeding car and, until you get the knack, does create the somewhat hilarious image of this teched-up dude standing in the road desperately waving his arms around while cars speed past. Being called Whiplash And Burn, it’s also got the sort of title which I give posts to create groans. Next up: Rum, Sodomy And the Whiplash, yes?

Not The Ted Hughes One

He Is Iron Man And So Is My Wife

RPS had a splendid meeting today. Amongst our many conversation topics was the matter of conflicts of interest, and what should we do about them. Well, declare them, obv. And so I’m leaping at this chance to double down by posting this Unity-powered Iron Man webgame. Not only do I scribble comic stories for Marvel, but I’ve worked for Littleloud on another game. Oh noes! Anyway, this rail-shooter ties in with the forthcoming movie, and continues the adventures of Iron Man. He’s an American industrialist who was bitten by a radioactive household tool, and thus gained the proportionate powers of of an iron. This includes, removing creases, burning holes in expensive suits and suffering sexist accusations that using him is women’s work. It’s an efficient enough rail shooter with multiple weapons and a very light upgrade system, and the biggest problem is that the play area is surrounded by buttons leading to other parts of the site, so a misplaced click takes you there and lose your game. While approved by sponsor Dr Pepper, you suspect the delectable Miss Pepper Potts is going to be disappointed on Tony’s annihilation of everything with a barrel or tyres which looks at him funny. Iron Man Go!.
