Website of the day: Sesame Street Fighter

If you’re an office worker, a student, or anybody else who spends way too much of their time chained to a keyboard, we have something that will make this Monday morning a little easier to deal with.

At flavourmachine.com, you’ll find a brilliant little collection of 8-bit game emulators, but with a twist. And the one we think is worth playing with today is Sesame Street Fighter.

Yep, that’s right. It’s Sesame Street but with fighting. Awesome.

And the reason we reckon you could get away with playing it at work, or wherever, is that if you’ve got the chutzpah to pull it off, you could claim that it’s a typing training app. Because you don’t hit buttons to throw punches, you have to spell out the words on screen quicker than your opponent to land the all-important blows that will knock them out. Tenuous, but worth a try.

Like we said: awesome.
