London, Apr.30 (ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's confrontation with pensioner Gillian Duffy has been turned into a video game.

The game is titled Downing Street Fighter and can be accessed on the web site

Web users can battle it out as either disgruntled voter Mrs. Duffy or angry Prime Minister Brown in the specially-adapted beat-'em-up.

Users can control Brown to let his fists, feet and forehead do the talking in the best-of-three bout with an equally equipped Duffy, Sky News reports.

She appears as a new bonus opponent in Downing Street Fighter, a tongue-in-cheek election tribute to the legendary game Street Fighter.

Users can fight as any of the three main party leaders - who are given appropriate fighter robes and belts - against their political rivals.

A devilish hybrid of former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher is also available as an opponent.

Each politician's fighting style is alluded to during a pre-game sequence, along with his or her party, age and place of birth.

Brown is described as a "heavy hitter", Clegg as "scrappy", while Cameron is billed as adopting "Queensbury Rules" - the traditionally accepted boxing code.

The trio can also fight in a range of appropriate and inappropriate political stages.

The game is the latest in a long line of topical online games to take advantage of public events. (ANI)
