One word of warning. The game sends us push messages. They didn’t ask for our permission to do this upfront like most games do and we cannot find a way to turn them off. Not cool.

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.”
Synaptic Wave, a Ukrainian game development company decided to offer Tower Siege for free for a limited amount of time. Synaptic Wave pointed us to the game play video trailer above for their extremely similar game called Tesla Wars because they don’t have one for Tower Siege. We have played both Tower Siege and Tesla Wars each to the 10th level and they are both identical so far, except Tower Siege is free for the time being.
Both games are a twist on the tower defense genre without the strategy but require much more eye hand coordination. You must direct Tesla type electrical energy strikes towards black stick figures attacking both your power tower and the fence. You earn points for how many you kill and taking no mercy on the injured stick figures crawling away from your attacks.
We like to highlight apps that may inject some humor into our lives. With a name like “Harry Balls” would you expect otherwise? We came across Hollyweird Zombies, a free ios game consumers can download to their IPhone, IPod Touch, and IPad using iOS 4.1 or later. What does Hollyweird Zombies do? As you might guess its a Zombie themed side scrolling game that let’s you turn photos of your favorite and less than favorites folks into Zombies so you can destroy them with weapons like machine guns and chainsaws. Admittedly the game mechanic won’t win any awards for innovation but Hollyweird Zombies may help you blow off steam.
