Strike of Rage! is a fun 2D side-scrolling pixel art action brawler in which you play a disgruntled company employee who has been denied a pay rise so decides to kick some ass and make his miserly boss boss pay by force.
Inspired by Double Dragonand Streets of Rage, it’s a short, fun game in which you fight your way past company employees and cat-headed secretaries earning a bonus for each one you defeat. Your workmates are fairly easy fist-fodder, but your boss is another matter – you’ll really need to work to earn your bonus from him!
But this year,
I will get it right, I will stare at a single branch
for all of May. I will know what it’s going through
at least on the fructifying surface.
In May I will listen to the bark whimper and split,
the blossoms blink from sleep.
A few pains remain,
become formalized, enacted in dance
but I’m careful not to catch myself.
Dean Young, from “One Story,” Strike Anywhere (Center for Literary Publishing, 1995)
Workers across India are staging a day-long strike to protest at the economic policies of the government.
They say the “pro-business” policies of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government will put their jobs at risk and hurt ordinary people.
The unions are demanding the government drop plans to sell off stakes in state-run companies and change labour laws.
Reports say some 150 million workers - mainly in banking, manufacturing, construction and coal mining industries - belonging to 10 major unions are expected to stay away from work on Wednesday.
The strike appears to have hit public transport, with long queues of commuters and school children seen at a bus stops in many cities, including the capital, Delhi. Many passengers were also stranded at railway stations and airports.
A large number of schools and businesses were shut in the states of West Bengal and Kerala, where unions enjoy significant clout, and public transport was disrupted, reports said.
