Three months ago, the Seattle Seahawks routed the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XVLIII (the third worst drubbing in Super Bowl history). Well, 15 weeks later, Peyton Manning is still getting his ass kicked. Brandon King—a former teammate of Manning’s in Indy—has developed a smartphone game called “Smashman.” The game features a player with an uncanny resemblance to Manning, dodging defenders (oftentimes unsuccessfully).
According to a report from TMZ, King was inspired to develop the app while watching this year’s Super Bowl, explaining, “It was the most embarrassing game I ever saw him play. I was like let me make an app where it’s almost impossible to score on a defense."
“Smashman” is what the kids call a “tap” game, not unlike Balloon Party, Flappy Bird, or, like, a million other titles I’d know if I was 10-years-old. Basically, you tap your phone to make Smashman run; you dodge defenders; and you try to score 44 points—one more than the Seahawks hung The Sheriff in February. Sounds like fun, huh?
