Are you a natural capitalist? Well, then, you owe it to yourself to master Johnny Upgrade, the most bootstrappin' hero the world has ever known. Here he is the moment you begin the game:
With only a dollar to his name, Johnny doesn't even have the strength to walk to the nearest coin. He's nothing more than an intern in the game of life. And what happens? Well, he bites it almost instantly.
But by investing his single dollar in the future, Johnny gains the power to take a baby step toward those other coins. And once he has those coins, the sky is the limit.
That's right, little Johnny Upgrade has the power to better himself through cash. What better American hero could there possibly be? The longer you play, the richer Johnny gets, and the richer Johnny gets, the higher he can jump, the longer he can live, the more time he can have, and eventually Johnny will be taking lasers in the face and shrugging it off. Which is good, because after a while you'll have some enemies to defeat.
If you seriously believe in the self-made man, Johnny Upgrade is the game you've been waiting for all your life. Start making Johnny earn his keep, and don't forget to post your score in the forums below. Highest one by Monday will be our weekly Quality Post winner!
