The Woz gets his own (badass) game character

Think about Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak for a moment. He’s big, kind of cuddly and a lot more genial-looking than Steve Jobs was. Not the kind of guy you’d expect to see rampaging around a city with a gun then.

But that’s exactly what he’s been cast as in a new iOS game called Danny Trejo’s Vengeance: Woz with a Coz. The retro style action-platformer sees the Woz teaming up with Hollywood badass Danny Trejo to rescue the tech pioneer’s kidnapped wife.

The game, which will set you back US$0.99 is meant as a tie-in to Trejo’s upcoming movie Vengeance, set for release in 2013.

According to the game’s description on the Apple app store, the game’s story line was written by Wozniak himself.

There are also a couple of other celebrity appearances from the likes of rapper Baby Bash and MMA fighter Rashad Evans.
