'Progress Wars' parody takes a well-placed jab at Facebook games
Even though millions of people spend time playing Facebook/social games daily, there's always going to be a handful of contrarians. So far we've seen anti-FarmVille posters, special anti-social gaming Facebook groups and, now, Progress Wars, a parody game takes a well-placed jab at our favorite pastime.
Progress Wars, created by Jakob Skjerning, has one goal -- to click the button at the center of the page and fill up the bar, leveling up each time the bar is filled. There are random 'jobs' assigned to the bar, our favorite has to be 'Tickle the Yakuza,' clearly a shot at Zynga's Mafia Wars. Once a job is complete, keep clicking to finish the next job and repeat, ad nauseum.
