The Other Tiger Woods Videogame
Ever since Tiger Woods got into a car accident outside of his Florida home last Friday, the world has been glued to subsequent developments. One of the most popular YouTube videos circulating over the past few days was a clip by an Asian media company that reenacted the incident.
Now Nickelodeon’s online videogaming site AddictingGames is turning the incident into a game called “Tiger Parking Slam.” It’s a far different game from Tiger Woods’s offical Tiger Woods Golf game, which is published by Electronic Arts. The objective of the new game from AddictingGames is to figure out how to park in neighbors’ driveways without crashing the car. Players, who take on the role of Woods, have to navigate their way through obstacles that include tree branches, golf carts, paparazzi, police and Woods’s wife swinging golf clubs at the car.
AddictingGames is no stranger to news-based Flash games. The last such game it created was “Shut up Kanye,” which launched in September a week after the rap singer rudely interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. That game, requiring the player to throw things at Kanye until he got off the stage, was played slightly less than one million times.
