Just a day after Narendra Modi-themed SmartNamo phones became available for pre-orders in India, a US-based company has released an Android game featuring the Gujarat chief minister.
Dexati, a developer of mobile apps, has released the game – titled Modi Run – as a free app on Google’s operating system.
The gameplay of Modi Run involves BJP’s prime ministerial candidate running across 12 states to gather votes and, after the last stage, become the PM of India.
Though not all states are shown in the game, the Gujarat strongman runs through Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttaranchal, Rajasthan, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Madhya Pradesh in his quest for the PM’s seat.
The app shows Modi beating obstacles and collecting diamonds at various stages. And he doesn’t just run, but also flaps his arms comically to hop across a long stretch. At the end of each stage, he counts the votes in the BJP ballot box.
This game has not been endorsed either by Modi or by BJP, says the game’s publisher. Dexati also says, “Help Modi win the election by running through the elections. If you are a fan of Modi or a supporter of BJP, this is the app for you.”
Modi Run has already been downloaded by Android users approximately 50,000 times and has a rating of 4.8 (out of 5), based on over 400 user reviews.
