React Games released Presidents Run, a side scrolling platform game allowing you to experience the life of a presidential candidate crisscrossing the country collecting votes. Power Ups include power-shoes which may make you the most powerful leader on earth. Gamers can download the Presidential Run to their IPhones, IPads, and IPod Touch. President’s Run seems like a pretty standard platform running style game without offering any super earth shattering.
Here’s React Games Description of President’s Run:
“From Utah-based independent developer, ‘React! Games’, comes a brilliantly designed distance runner in which you choose your favorite presidential candidate, and run across the country collecting as many votes as you can! To help you along the way, upgrades such as power-shoes are available that give you special abilities to help you become the most powerful man on earth!
“We wanted to give people a fun and engaging way to participate in the race to the White House,” said Chad Lee, Managing Director of React! Games. “Not only will they compete against friends to see who can make it farthest, but every mile they run and vote they collect will be reflected at www.presidentsrun.com. We think ‘Presidents Run’ can predict the results of this year’s election.”
Published by 6waves and just released on iOS for the Apple iPhone®, Apple iPod Touch®, and the Apple iPad®, as well as in the Android™ Play Store, ‘Presidents Run’ will be updated by the developer on a bi-monthly basis with new features, characters, backgrounds, items, shoes and accessories. Available as a FREE download, this awesome title will have live updates (online) featuring cumulative distance and vote totals for each candidate in the game. ‘Presidents Run’ is a unique twist on the American Idol™ type of call-in for your favorite contestant but instead of calling in, you simply play the game. Each play session records your distance and votes earned per candidate, and upload those numbers online – the more you play, the farther your favorite candidate gets. Players are encouraged to keep a close eye on the games Facebook & Twitter as weekly challenges and prizes will be posted and drawn. To kick things off, React! Games is sponsoring a sweepstakes on the game’s website www.presidentsrun.com where you can enter to win a free Apple iPad® and other prizes.
“We see ‘Presidents Run’ as a way for players to show support for their favorite candidate, and if that happens to be Zombie George Washington, then all the more fun!” continues Casey Spencer, Producer at React! Games.”
