Two Canadian engineering students have created built the ultimate Rob Ford web-based video game.

In “Crackathon,” created by Nick Mostowich and Chris Ngan, your job is to give a fat, mini Rob Ford maximum party points before he is impeached — it’s literally only a matter of time before public opinion runs out. Marijuana, crack and booze treasures are dispersed against a Toronto backdrop inhabited by dangerous cops and reporters, which must be squashed.

But the magic of the game is in the soundbites, taken by the creators from Rob Ford’s actual statements in press conferences.

Run into a cop? “I did absolutely nothing wrong,” he might say. Or “No, I’m not going to apologize.” A reporter? “Get off the property partner.” Another go-to is an awesome, maniacal laugh.

If you fail, mini-Ford says, “It’s a problem,” and a giant banner says “You’ve been impeached!”

Mostowich and Ngan, both engineering students at The University of Waterloo, created the game in just 16 hours at HackNY’s annual spring Hackathon, a coding competition for students, reports CBCNews.

Mostowich tweeted April 7:

He later defended himself from accusations of a hidden agenda:

 


Ford is currently the mayor of Toronto and has been embroiled in several controversies, including a substance abuse scandal and a conflict of interest trial. He has admitted to public drunkenness and illegal drug use. (RELATED: Ford: ‘I need f—ing 10 minutes to make sure he’s dead’ [VIDEO])
