Office Politics: Backstab is now available in the Apple App Store.
Work in an office? You know that a-hole who is just waiting to stab you in the back to get ahead? What about that selfish jerk that is never around when something needs to be done -- but never there to blame when something goes wrong? And then there is the office bimbo...
Well now, with Office Politics: Backstab, you can finally act out your darkest, deepest feelings towards these and several other office stereotypes, without the lawsuit. The app is a twist on the classic whack-a-mole game, but with a relatable and intriguing storyline. When it was originally released in Singapore, it reached the top 10 paid apps within the first 48 hours. Today, Iddiction brings it to the US.
You begin by choosing from 7 characters, each with their own skill set (don't worry - your aforementioned friends Two-Face, Shadow Ninja, and Office Bimbo are all options), and immediately start backstabbing your colleagues to climb the corporate ladder. Through the 18 distinct levels, you will come up against 13 different types of enemies and face 6 special bosses - each with their own unique game-play. There are 4 difficulty modes, 26 available achievements, and of course high score tables for the best of the best to revel in their political glory.
Andrej Nabergoj, CEO and founder ofIddiction, warns us: "As a longtime sufferer of backhanded office politics, this game hits so close to home that it's almost frightening. I just hope nobody comes into the office one day and starts aggressively tapping their least favorite co-workers... it won't work in real life!" (Maniacal laughs optional.)
