Changing Whack a Mayor

As most people have probably heard in the news, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has withdrawn from the mayoral election and was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. Although I had originally considered leaving Mayor Ford in the Whack a Mayor game, as he is still officially running for a council seat, I have now decided to remove his image from the gameplay. Given the seriousness of the illness, I no longer find it funny to have people whack Mr. Ford, in spite of a suggestion to add a “kill-him-off” feature in the game.  Doug Ford has been added to the game, just as he has replaced Mayor Ford in the election.

I have recently submitted a new version of the game to the iTunes App Store without Mayor Ford, and it will be released as soon as it is approved by Apple. An Android version will be released this weekend. This will also Whack a Mayor our first app optimized for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6/6 Plus.
