A cartoon version of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe jumps for victory in new smartphone game to boost support ahead of next month s election.

Jumping from platforms to platforms, PM Abe Shinzo is now a caped crusader in a video game … This is how the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Abe san, himself, have chosen to appeal to younger voters. Just in time for the Senate elections July 21st, by which, the LDP hopes to crush the opposition.

Since the law allows the use of social media in election campaigns, Abe san and his gang are multiplying different ways to take advantage to force feed their propaganda via Internet. Facebook pages and Twitter accounts etc … and “video games”. This game will be launched on smartphones and tablets.

In this game called “Abe Pyon” (“jumps Abe”), the little guy representing the Prime Minister – armed with laughing eyes and a big smile – must jump and bounce platforms without falling. The more he advances, the more the player accumulates points that give access to information about Abe and his party. Thanks to its credit, the player can also change the place of his character.

Abe san can also wear a Superman like suit in the game. If I had to choose a cape for Abe though, I would have totally used the artwork from “281 anti_nuke”.

Note;  I want to play the game simply so I can have fun dropping him at the first jump … EVERYTIME !!!
