'Slap Sarkozy'

A Turkish gaming website unveiled today an Internet-based game that lets you slap French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
 
The video game was uploaded to the website www.sunoyun.com hours after a piece of legislation criminalizing the denial of Armenian genocide claims was approved by the French Senate. 
 
The game, titled "Slap Sarkozy," lets you control an on-screen hand with your mouse and slap an unsuspecting Sarkozy standing in front of a backdrop of Paris scenery as hard as possible. 
 
In the definition section of the game, the developers ask players, "Don't you think Sarkozy deserves a good slap in the face?" and gives a brief account of the recent political developments that led to the approval of the "genocide denial" law.  
 
The game comes in seven different languages; unsurprisingly, French is not one of them. 
 
The game calculates how fast you hit Sarkozy and gives the result in kilometers per hour. Any slap that falls below 200 km/h is deemed "unsuccessful" by the game. 
 
You can click here to play the game.
