United Airlines keeps getting trolled on the Internet, this time with a mobile game
It's not our job to say who was right, and who was wrong in the recent United Airlines incident. The Internet has done that already, anyway. And since the Internet could be somewhat cruel at times with its mockery, we're not surprised that one entrepreneurial developer decided to take it one step further.

Enter, Remove Airlines Passenger – a mobile game, based on the recent events at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The game will place you in the shoes of an airline security guard, tasked with removing passengers from an overbooked flight by force.

The gameplay is quite simple. Your character will automatically run on the isle of an endless airplane, while you tap the left or right side of the screen, in order to remove passengers. The more you advance, the faster your tiny, pixelated security guard will move. Hit an empty seat, and the game will end, presenting you with a score, which is basically the number of people you've booted off the overbooked flight.

The game is completely free, with no in-app purchases, but it does feature ads. Considering its extremely simple gameplay and relevance to a current event, the game is probably sentenced to a burst of fame, followed by a quick and sudden fall in the pit of oblivion, but it does show how far Internet users would go to make a point, and how some people are able to cash in on anything.

It should be called "Reaccommodate Airline Passengers".

Shame on them for treating their customers this way. Sue their asses to oblivion.

They should be glad it wasn't The GreenMan... I'd have smashed his big, bald head with my beer bottle...!!! I'm no fighter, but since I'm 6'2" @ 230lbs, I'm a fairly big man... And my big fist is enough to give someone a BIG headache, if not a little nap... But I'm mostly a humble and simple man and don't easily get enraged or offended and don't revert to aggression unless I really have to... But this arrogant behavior on the airline is enough to make anyone angry... But then again... Fighting is like a war... There're no winners and no loosers... Nah, there is indeed a looser... HUMANITY...! Oh well, G'Day!
