This simulation game pokes fun at Tinder users who can't seem to stop swiping.

It's impossible to win 'Millennial Swipe Sim 2015.' In the neon-colored, rapid-paced game, cartoon Tinder user profiles flash across the screen. Players must swipe right or left, as one would on the real Tinder. Just like on Tinder, once one profile is swiped away, another appears. Unlike in real Tinder, as players swipe profiles away, they continue to appear with increasing speed, until finally the fake Tinder users are forced to give up. At this point, a tombstone appears on the screen with the player's swipe count.

There's been a lot of debate lately about whether this generation of Tinder users is more or less successful in relationships than its predecessors, who practiced more conventional forms of dating. This Tinder simulation game seems to suggest that swiping is a slippery slope.
