The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

The election has been uninspiring, but at least the creative among us have knocked out a few good games for the peasants to play when it all gets too much. We've covered most of the games before, but just to remind you all.

Tory Invaders - an interesting take on space invaders. Be Tony Blair and blast cascading hordes of Tories. Hit the Thatcher mothership for extra points.

The Prescott punch game - the undoubted highlight of the election. The deputy prime minister throws (and connects) a left jab at some mullet man. This game will see you punching your way through the street. But look out for the eggs and Labour voters.

Tomato throwing game Not as good as the others, but feel free to chuck tomatoes at scumbag politicians.

Splat the MP - a better egg-throwing game. Based in the House of Commons. Make sure you don't hit Robbie Williams or Britney Spears.

Rosette on the leader's penis game - a new one from satire site Spinon. Plant rosettes on the leader's John Thomas as he flashes. Apparently the more you plant the more in favour of that party you are. We beg to differ.

Whitehall rampage - another new one. You are Tony Blair. You must make your way down Whitehall to Downing Street, avoiding GM tomatoes, sheep with foot and mouth, angry farmers and buses. Use your flame thrower or Molotov cocktails.

Crouching Tony, Hidden Hague - beat-em-up game featuring our Tony in red pyjamas and Little Willy in blue boiler suit battling it out with karate moves. Kung-fu beauty.

And that's it. ®
