So I found this game the other day which I found absolutely hilarious!! I couldn’t stop playing, not because of how good the game is but because the content is amazing. The game is about Leonardo Di Caprio and his everlasting fight to win an Oscar.
It was created by The Line Animation and their official description of their games is:
“GET LEO THE ULTIMATE AWARD OR DIE TRYING IN LEO’S RED CARPET RAMPAGE, AN ARCADE STYLE PLATFORM GAME WHERE YOU RACE DOWN THE RED CARPET ON A QUEST FOR THE ULTIMATE AWARD. COLLECT AS MANY EMMY’S AND GOLDEN GLOBES AS YOU CAN ALONG THE WAY. BUT BEWARE OF PUSHY PHOTOGRAPHERS AND WATCH OUT FOR LADY GAGA… AND ICEBERGS”
And comes with the two #s: #REDCARPETRAMPAGE #OSCARFORLEO – I think they’re trying to tell someone something…
A nice little motivational speech came first, I was ready and raring to go to help Leo get his first Oscar…
Starting point came, I needed to alternate between G and H to make Leo run, the fasted I alternated the quicker he moved, space bar also allows him to jump.
Side rounds after you complete the levels appear (completing a level has absolutely nothing to do with getting the Oscar), this is what happened after my first level – trying to help Leo crawl back to his car, potentially so nobody can see him after the disappointment of not getting the Oscar.
Round 2 came about and I was racing against Matt Damon (from The Martian) to get an Oscar, but again to no avail, but I beat Matt Damon *crowd goes wild*
Another side game and this was my attempt to help Leo to act harder, I thought this was brilliant and quite poignant with The Revenant looking like it was purely made to get Leo his long awaited Oscar.
At this point the levels started becoming quite similar, albeit slightly more difficult, so I started only taking screenshots of the side games (there was a surprise appearance from Lady Gaga – I’m sure this was due to her awful appearance in my favourite TV programme American Horror Story).
This one I laughed so hard!!! There was always going to be and had to be a reference to the lack of black nominees for the Oscars – no matter how much you search among the faces in this crowd, a black person is nowhere to be found.
At this point you will have to write Leos acceptance speech but you just do a bit of keyboard bashing as fast as you can and it brings up the speech for you. I expect the speech would be quite funny the second time of playing when I see what the rest of the speech says.
And finally, you can see how much , no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get Leo his Oscar!!
I got Leo a lot of various other awards but the ever-evasive Oscar evaded him once more.
You must try this for yourself to fully understand the humor behind it! It is fantastic!!
