As if Twitter itself wasn’t a big enough time waster, right? This is a Japanese flash game (so is this) that takes your Twitter icon and pits you against another Twitter icon. After you’ve chosen the opponents, Twitter icons are placed on the battlefield, and they break up into a bunch of tiny little pieces, which charge at each other and duke it out. What I learned from all this? The Tofugu Twitter icon is very, very weak.
Tofugu Vs. Gakuranman
You’d think with all that Yellow, @gakuranman would turn tail and flee. Nope, he went right for the throat, and took me down quickly.
Since he wins, he gets a link back to his Japan-blog (go check it out).
Tofugu vs. WhatJapanThinks
Since WhatJapanThinks is such an intellectually stimulating blog, I thought the Twitter account (@whatjapanthinks) wouldn’t be able to take more than a couple of Fugu-slaps to the face (which have glasses, of course).
It even had fewer pixels to fight with. Turns out, each pixel was way tougher than any of mine. I was in for a pretty quick defeat.
Tofugu Vs. Flutterscape
Since FlutterScape is full of pink, I thought “easy.” You may be able to buy cool Japanese stuff from Flutterscape, I can win victory…with luck, or something.
Wrong as usual, look at all that Pink! @Flutterscape was a monster.
Tofugu Vs. RainbowHill
Tofugu Vs. Lang-8
This is the only one that I won… and I kinda feel bad, since I love Lang-8 for Japanese study so much. Plus, their Twitter logo is the thing that tells me when there’s some scheduled maintenance going on.
Tofugu Vs. ChrisGaunt
Tofugu Vs. PinkTentacle
Well, it’s not really multiplayer, but I have no doubt that your Twitter account will utterly demolish my Twitter account. Pop us into this game, and send me a tweet to @tofugu telling me how badly you beat me. You should also follow the people above on Twitter, RSS, etc., they’re awesome (and some of the most first people who I saw on my Twitter Feed, so sorry if you didn’t get in this article to destroy me!) You can play the game here: http://dw.sipo.jp/
P.S. If you have Twitter, you should join in on this (simple) contest, found in this post on Amidakuji!
