Most Effective Propaganda
SpeedHack isn't all work and no play. One of the challenges was to implement some form of propaganda or brainwashing into the game. Here are the ones that left you all thinking the same thing.
Tic Tac Toe
By Matthew LevertonGame Background
Tic Tac Toe is quite possibly the most frustrating and useless pencil game of all time. Every game ends in a draw, unless you are five years old. It makes for an even worse computer game, despite an oddly designed 3x5 board. But if that computer lets you win, then maybe it's not all bad... especially if it takes time out to talk to you now and then.Our Take
"SDL is a buggy piece of garbage, my friend." And with that one tinny, robotic line, all of the SpeedHackers instantly forgot how terrible of a game this is. But really, my friend, what's more effective than a computer telling you not to do drugs?

Armed with just a grappling hook, you face the daunting task of ridding each level of its evil nuclear power. Dr. Green gives you a bit of advice, and from there you have to clear each of the levels in any order you like. The hook serves as both a weapon and a mode of transportation, and you couldn't save the world without it.Our Take
The whole point of the game is to get rid of nuclear energy, which is described as evil by the ever so helpful Dr. Green.

Meet Hungry Hungarian Hare Harry, the hungry Hungarian hare. As with any rabbit-like creature, his entire life revolves around running and eating. You must help him balance his diet such that he can maximize his life. But just like real life, there's no way to win... so you might as well enjoy that greasy hamburger.Our Take
As Harry is running, there are billboards shamelessly promoting junk food everywhere you look. Again, just like real life.
