The Strangest Gaming News You'll Hear All Year

Take Lionel Messi into space on a scooter

For Lionel Messi, being a five time Ballon d’Or wiiner, four time Champions League winner and arguably the greatest player ever to kick a round ball (sorry Cristiano) is not enough, no, what the diminutive Argentine superstar really needs is his own video game, and now he has one.

This isn't your every day run-of-the-mill football simulator, absolutely not, no. In the wonderfully descriptive Messi Space Scooter Game, you control your own Lionel (this is a quote) "As he travels with aliens in UFO’s from the stadium to unknown worlds, where his scooter skills are tested during various missions.

"Messi jumps over rocks, bridges and other obstacles, makes somersaults, stoops to drive through tunnels and is dodging rockets and monsters. Of course he is allowed to shoot balls to get a free passage. Along the way he collects coins and other things that gain points, with which players can win *prices."

If that wasn't enough to have you racing straight to the app store before you call in sick for the rest of the week, then take a look at this video.

Step aside Clash Of Clans, there's a new big time mobile game in town. It's Messi on a scooter fighting aliens.
