Become a 2012 presidential candidate yourself in Eversim’s latest political simulation game The Race for the White House starting in a few weeks. Dive into the battle of the presidential election with a super realistic political simulation.
The Race for the White House is intriguing for political neophytes and political junkies. You control all the components of the campaign: travel around the country, announce policy statements and political promises, manage the campaign budget, establish campaign headquarters, put on TV ads, organize rallies, gather donations, participate in televised debates or the election night results... and even use dirty tricks (fun stuff like spreading scandalous rumors, stealing campaign cash, and sabotage!).
Choose your candidate from a wide list of real political figures, with 3D animated faces and hours of dialogue with impersonation, and then take on an opposing candidate controlled by the computer or another human player on internet. Two game modes are Realistic running with actual campaign budgets and voting polls, or Equal Start giving same budget and polls to candidates.
After listening to the community, important changes have been added to Conquest! Medieval Realms: the inclusion of the save feature is for sure the most important one: the game will now auto-save every turn, allowing players to resume their game the next time they start again. For players looking for an additional challenge in their campaigns, difficulty settings have been adjusted to give a greater challenge to advanced players. Conquest mode has also been tinkered with, with the mode’s difficulty scaling to the player as they progress through the maps.
To download the update, simply go to the Apple App Store update section or from the Android page.
Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) have announced that Battle Academy on the iPad has been ‘blitzing across the charts. Since the game’s release yesterday, Battle Academy has made its way onto the top 10 charts across Europe, including France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and the UK, and the top 20 in the U.S. And that’s just after its first day! In fact if you dismiss the myriad of free to play games it’s actually charting in the top three!!!
The game has generated a wealth of discussions on many specialist sites and blogs for its premium price, but this hasn’t stopped it climbing the charts of Top Grossing iPad Games.
