'A realistic simulator where Mark Kelly destroys the things you love': Blake Masters' campaign releases space-themed game criticizing Dem opponent's 'failures'

With only one week until Election Day, Arizona Republican senatorial candidate Blake Masters released a "realist simulator" game spotlighting the alleged failures of Democrat opponent Mark Kelly's political career, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.

The space-themed game pokes fun at Kelly's former NASA career by placing the player inside a spaceship with an animated depiction of the senator.

The game is called "Mr. Spaceman: A realistic simulator where Mark Kelly destroys the things you love." The game's objective is to demolish oncoming objects by clicking on them, but each object represents something Arizonans value that Kelly's policies have allegedly destroyed.

The approaching objects that players must destroy are the "nuclear family," "your savings," "public order," "your 401K," "God-given rights," "border security," "small business," "parental rights," and "rule of law."

Each time an object is successfully annihilated, the game's depiction of Kelly comments on the player's progress.

For example, after the player destroys the oncoming "public order" graphic, Kelly's character mentions an anti-police comment made by one of his campaign staffers.

The comment refers to a post by Kelly's campaign deputy press secretary, T.J. L'Heureux. The staffer replied to a Twitter post by the Chicago Police Department by calling them "worthless f***ing pigs."

In Masters' game, when a player destroys the "God-given rights" object, Kelly's character replies, "I lied on my ATF form (look it up)."

That remark refers to when Kelly attempted to purchase a rifle in 2013 following the assassination attempt on his wife, former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. Kelly intended to demonstrate to the public that it is too easy to legally obtain a firearm.

However, the owner of the gun store where Kelly attempted to make the purchase refused to proceed with the sale and provided a refund. Some have alleged that, since Kelly was denied, he must have lied on Federal Form 4473, legally required to purchase a firearm.

The gun store owner released a statement on Facebook noting that Kelly was denied before filling out the form because his "intent" for purchasing the rifle was "for reasons other than for his personal use."

Masters' game criticizing Kelly's political policies always ends with the player losing. A message on the screen reads, "Game Over: You ran out of gas and have no money to refuel your tank" – a reference to high gas prices and inflation.

Players are then directed to a website titled "Mission Failure," where Masters' campaign lists criticism of Kelly's political career.

Arizona's Libertarian candidate, Marc Victor, dropped out of the race on Tuesday and endorsed Masters.

RealClearPolitics reported that the race between Blake Masters and Mark Kelly is currently a "toss up."

Kelly's campaign did not respond to a request for comment, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.
