New Android game aimed at toppling Egypt's Morsi
Supporters of the Tamarod (Rebel) campaign have created a mobile application to promote its initiative to gather 15 million signatures for a petition to withdraw confidence from Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, the Youm 7 daily reported.
The game, which runs on the Android phone, shows a campaigner running down the street to collect signatures.
Along the way, the campaigner hears segments of the president’s speeches whenever he encounters sheep, which are used by Morsi's opponents as a symbol to refer to Muslim Brotherhood supporters, who are accused of acting like sheep in blindly following orders.

Tamarod wants its petition to exceed the 13.2 million votes for Morsi during the presidential elections in 2012, which followed a revolution the previous year that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
Tamarod has called for a demonstration outside the presidential palace on June 30, the first anniversary of Mursi’s tenure in office.
The petition calls for early elections, but the president has insisted on completing his four-year term.
