If You Thought deodorant products and PC gaming were mutually exclusive phenomena, think again. In a move that could revolutionise hygiene standards across the Internet, men's grooming brand Axe (aka Lynx) has teamed up with casual game specialist WildTangent to give us 3D mating game' Mojo Master.
Aimed at frustrated males and would-be sex pests, Mojo Master is an online-only affair in which the aim is to pick up a series of ridiculously hot girls" in bars, pool halls and other dens of vice. The gameplay, such as it is. takes a lead from collectible card games such as Magic: The Gathering, and sees you trading idiotic flirting moves with your prey in order to reduce the other's mojo to zero. Make the wrong move and you'll get the cold shoulder; make the right moves and you might just get her phone number... the wanton strumpet.
True to its 'brand-building' objectives, the game is riddled with advertisements for Axe products - they even operate as a power-up to boost your mojo when things are going a bit Bobby and Whitney.
If you can stomach this sort of blatant commercialism, not to mention the sickening appropriation of youth culture by one of the world's biggest corporations (Unilever), then Mojo Master may be worth a glance. It is, after all, free.
