"Kill The Prez" (Anco)

Amiga Power listed this in their "Big 100 Best Games Ever" list, but I've never seen it anywhere else. It even had a screenshot. Was this just put in to see if anyone was paying attention or what (with their JFK conspiracy stuff, it sounds like them).

Anyone know more about this?

Ta!

Along with 'Sinister Theme Park' it is an utterly fictious game.

Why is Sinister Theme Park utterly ficticious?

EDIT: *sob!*

They sure fooled my naieve childhood brain at the time, although I after looking at their fake vector graphics for Kill the Prez it was hardly believable

I remember the 'cheat' to enable Sinister Theme Park involved doing loads of impossible stuff beforehand

I guess they were pushed to find stuff to print. In the section where the whole team give their short opinions on the games reviewed, it gradually turned into them reviewing things like Sainsbury's Instant Coffee and Alanis Morrisette (who was relatively unknown at the time)

Anyone know which issue they printed the Sinister Theme Park cheat in? I only ever saw the game mentioned in one of their PD roundup thingies, which got my youthful self fascinated by the concept.

Not that I believe it would work, I just want to know what the cheeky little scamps at AP wanted people to go through.

Also, someone should use the walkthrough for Kill The Prez that they printed to actually make that game. Anyone out there like making stupid flash/java games? Dares ya to have a crack at it!
