Love it👍

The game is very very fun. I hope things will continue to get added, such as a primary, debates, and maybe even some post
election/ second term election options, because it does get repetitive, but I definitely recommend it- I even bought all the add

Good but could be better

I love this game. However, I think it could be better, I think you should implement more feature from the pc version. Other
reviews have suggested this too. I would love to control where my person goes, as sometimes it frustrates me on where they go. I
would want my Democrat to go to Michigan but t

Great but there is a issue

I love this game it is a very good game but there is a little bit of an issue I was trying to get Ronald Reagan and it was
connecting to the App Store but it did not purchase it and I did not just try Reagan I tried Obama versus McCain and that did not
work too so if you can fix this problem thank y

I like how you can make a character and give them traits. But there is one thing I want you guys to do, can you make an AI vs AI
mode for mobile? That would be super fun, thanks!

I know that on computer it has more stuff such as ai va ai,online,and better custom characters you should definitely add these to
make the mobile version funner

It’s a great game!

I actually love this game and it’s really fun but it does definitely has some issues. First It has some glitches, I faced many
glitches like having the map being blurred or the presidential candidates disappearing. Second, the game can get repetitive
considering you can’t play against a friend or ha

Add a presidential debate

This game is already great but I think it would be amazing if it had a presidential debate similar to the the interviews or you
could just put it in political machine 2024 but that’s a long way away

This game is so addicting. The only downside to it is that there aren’t a lot of updates and other candidates aren’t added.
It’s kind of boring every once in a while. Hoping developers deliver updates. Other than that, this game is the BEST.

Great game but make update it to 1.3!

I love the game but the computer version has more options such as being able to customize your characters ideology, scale, and
etc. In the mobile version, you can’t even do AI vs AI which is a little annoying. Please make the mobile version as good as
the computer version and I will give you that

Love The Game

I’ve been playing the game for a while now and the only change I would really ask for is the ability to pick an ideology for
custom candidates as that’s a feature in the pc version I kinda miss on mobile. Other than that, great game and I hope this gets
added as well as the developers continue their

Amazing Game

I think that this game was on point. I do however, think that some more candidates are to be added. Possibly Mike Bloomberg,
Kanye West, Abe Lincoln, FDR, JFK, Teddy Rosevelt, and George Washington. These are just some that I think should be added.

Also another thing you could add is the running f

Great Game, one small issue

I love the game, it’s a lot better than some other similar games out there. I’d like to see some things like debates be added
in the future and whatnot. One thing I’ve noticed is a bug particularly in California. It seems if your issue stance in
California is too high, your score will go into the ne

Good game

It is a really fun game and all, but I think that you should be able to actually use stamina cause right now there is no use for
it. Another thing is that for me it seems like the game is really easy right now cause whenever I play on the hardest difficulty I
can still easily win, but all in all it

It works now!

This app didn’t work at first but now that it does it’s amazing!! I love the different parties, customization, candidates and
difficulties. The best parts are the talk shows. Hopefully they add more candidates and AI vs AI soon!

Great game, but one more feature would be awesome

This game is awesome. It has 6 difficulties for a player to choose from, and has realistic gameplay. The only thing I would ask
for is AI vs AI, but other than that, this game is incredible.

The game is pretty good but one suggestion is to have Florida be a battle ground state because right now it is a democratic state
