An app developer has cooked up a new video game that pits Russia’s modern-day strongman against one of the nation’s most notorious characters. The bad news for iPhone and iPad users: it will only be available for Android iOS for the time being:

“You Don’t Mess With Putin” will see the Russian leader battle the undead led by the mystic Rasputin.

Belgian app developer Michele Rocco Smeets said that:

“Putin has this tough guy image and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. He hunts, he rides, he shoots. A leader should be strong, and in my opinion Putin is the only world leader who really fulfils this image.”

The game will appear real-life Putin quotes like “Give me back my pen” which he said to a Russian oligarch after cowing him into signing an agreement.

Smeets’ last video game called ‘Run Snowden Run’ was based on the escape of former NSA contractor, Edward Snowden from the US.
