Webgame Wednesday: 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World

So the Mayan Apocalypse will wipe out all life on Earth in less than a week. Nothing to do except spend your remaining days fornicating and playing video games. We can't help you with the former. But in the latter category, we offer up Dikembe Mutombo's 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World. Normally we don't post many webgames that are product-related, but this eclectic 8-bit throwback, produced by the Old Spice folks, has the surreal edge of their weirdest deodorant commercials. Each week, the game has been uploading a new level. Towering NBA star Mutombo and his sidekick, a British bear in a Cosby sweater, are tasked with preventing the apocalypse in some manner. In one level, for example, they have to battle emo teens to stop Hollywood producers from making another vampire romance. In another, they've got to deliver a hoagie to pregnant Kate Middleton. The whole thing is hilariously bizarro and surprisingly fun to play.
