Play it Again: Holy Stomping

holyWhen’s the last time you found a really good, amazingly simple, outlandishly dumb, and endlessly entertaining Internet game? If it’s been a while then today is the day for a new one. Holy Stomping is the new game in which you play as the Foot of Cupid from Monty Python and you stomp things.

Holy Stomping is a quick, reference-laden realization of the power fantasy to end all power fantasies. You hold down a mouse button, the foot slowly descends from on-high, and everybody goes splat. But not actually everybody, because after a few waves your painterly prey start fighting back. Uncrushable statues waddle through, as do arrow-slinging archers and the like. The goal is to survive for as long as possible, as it is in many games and also life.

It reminds me of when I would play Super Smash Brothers and my brother would laugh as Master Hand ground my poor little Luigi into paste. If you’re up for some cheap entertainment and the boss isn’t watching go play this game.
