Great Educational App!
The game overall is very fun, exciting, and rather informative. However, there are some places that could’ve been more optimized and updated. In some cases on specific ProMotion devices (especially on the iPhone 13 Pro), the user interface refresh rate seems to be locked at 60 Hz while the display is optimized for 120 Hz. As for the audio, it seems, (I could be wrong) doesn’t work on my iPhone. I tried turning sound on and off again in the app settings, but it seems to be not working. To conclude, I just wish this issue could be fixed soon with an update to the app. Thanks again for this great app!

Icivics can y’all make a new political game
Hi icivics I love the political competition on win the White House but there’s 2 other areas that American politics focuses on can y’all create a map where the game chooses a random state and we are assigned a portion of that state like how senate races work and depending on how good or bad we challenged that our game chosen political opposition the senate map shapes territory in all 50 states based on our political battle and all 50 states chose their governors in the state wide election I propose that can be a second game and the same rules apply we compete in a chosen state and we campaign as governor of that state depending on how good or bad we challenged our game chosen political opposition the governor map shapes territory in all 50 states based on our political battle I think both my senate and governor political competition games will be a great addition for people around the world to expirence the full American political arena thanks for reading this long proposition and I believe icivics can make it happen and make it great

Great Game Few Suggestions
Found this game from a few people on discord and decided to get it and it’s really fun, but I have a few suggestions. -Maybe make it that the president candidate you go up against isn’t the opposite gender every single time. -Also maybe add more ways to persuade the states. Maybe that costs 4 dollars and gives 3 momentum for that state, but can only be used once a game, so people have to use it wisely. -Maybe make other parties as well, like independent parties, Libertarian Parties, and Green Parties. -I also would like a presidential debate. -Also maybe make customizable vans for when you proceed to the next week. -Another suggestion : Gamemodes! Maybe a Multiplayer Version and Hand & Play version (where you make your turn and give it to your friend who is the other candidate) -Also difficulties: Easy Normal Medium and Hard Mode. -Another suggestion is a game mode where you can run for senate and run for the state of your choice! Even if this can’t be added to the game please make it another game (if it already exists please tell me which.) -Final Suggestion: I know the game is based off the White House, but maybe you could make it for more countries like France and Germany and England and more (Since some English people like other countries there could be English dubs still). That’s all for my suggestions! Thanks!

As A Kid This Game Is Amazing! I Like Politics More Than You Think But Anyways This Game Is Kinda Accurate Of How The US System Works. Any Inaccuracies? Well They Only Give You 1 Caucus But I Understand That The Game Would Take A Million Years To Finish Then. Other Ones? Well Sometimes Very Blue States In Real Life Like California, & New York Are Red States. Those Are The Inaccuracies. A Suggestion Is To Actually Take A Poll Of Each State And Use That Info. There Could Be 2 Modes. Random Mode & Real Mode. It’s Amazing! Btw It’s Not Hard It’s Medium Sometimes You Win Other Times You Lose. What Would Be Cool Is If You Added Other Countries So People From Other Countries Can Use This I Mean They Might Know About The Democrats And Republicans But It’s Gonna Be More Inclusive With More Countries! This Is Good For All Ages! Love This Game In General. Just Play This Game And You’ll Love It Maybe You’ll Lose At Your 1st But You’ll Win Soon Enough! 5 Stars!

Great Game, Add Multiplayer, Crashes upon opening after update
This game is arguably one of the best iOS Precedence Simulators as of its release date to now. After the new recent update the game crashes after selecting new game, making the game unplayable. Once this is resolved a really great feature that everyone has been waiting for is multiplayer. Multiplayer will keep the player base of this game growing because there is a community to play against and to compete with. Finding the game relatively easy, I find myself finding the game more and more boring as I keep playing and growing as a player. Multiplayer will add a fresh splash back to the game keeping it competitive and fun resulting in the outcome of a faster growing player base and community keeping the players stay around longer. Overall this game has great potential to become a 5-star top 100 free chart game.

One of the best political games
I absolutely love this game, it allows players to create their own candidates and run for President, this game is also highly simplified which allows those who don’t know much about politics the ability to understand what goes into running for office. There is a few suggestions I think would benefit the gameplay, I think a great addition would be the ability to campaign as an independent candidate or save your political characters. Multiplayer and and the ability to see the popular vote would also be interesting. Overall, a great game that I would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a political game.

I’ll give 4 ✨⭐️ —
— downloaded it seemingly as a decent educational App. It coasts to only be educated of the two publicizing parties in The USA. —— I do not believe this to be educational, as it is not educating people on the fact we are independent thinkers. This meaning; the Independent option should be open. If not the game/App. is not teaching but segregating based on “political views” —— voting is an 🔴Option🔴 as well - in the States we can hold voids in accordance to our set design. I would assume this realism was also left out of the educational simulation.

I LOVE this game but....
Don’t get me wrong, I love this game so much, but I do have one problem with it that I wish could be fixed. Game difficulties. I have never lost in this game, and I’m sure other people have not either, so that’s why I would like a difficulty where I can make it harder, and don’t win by a landslide each time. Just so I can make the game close and keep it interesting, I make dumb moves to let them make a little bit of a comeback, but I still end up winning by a landslide. This in my opinion, is a big problem. I love this game like I said before but I wish that you could make the game harder with game difficulties.

Great game
I love this game, it’s simple and fun. Winning the presidency is satisfying and watching the big states turn to your color, making the opponent lose many electoral votes, brightens my day. I only wish that at the end of the election that states would be solid red or solid blue as to distinguish them better, maybe along with your certificate you get a red and blue map of the us, but this is just my opinion. I’ve also read other people’s reviews and I think they’re absolutely amazing ideas, like other more countries, real and random mode, multiplayer (maybe even pass & play), etc. All great ideas I think the dev Team should add.

Fun, educational, good for kids who are in to learning about what it takes to become president.
I would like to start off this review of saying that this game is definitely one of the best becoming president games of the century. It allows you to create your own campaign and run against the computer or if you sign in, your friends! I feel it is very educational for children who want to grow up and want to become politicians. You start in the primaries, and after that if you succeed you move on to the national election where you can go visit states to get momentum to help your campaign.

I like this game, but there are some problems
To start with, this game is not rigged, I have played as both democrats and republicans and have won with both, however the game gets boring over time and is really easy after you have played a couple times, also it is really basic, pick the right choices and you will win, and it’s not like choosing the right choice is hard, it’s easy. There is some strategy, but it’s super basic if you focus on New York, California, Florida, and Texas you will win. If you think this game is fun, download it. However it would be nice for the game to be more in-depth.

Very fun
The game is a very fun game that I have spent a couple hours on. Other reviews were saying how hard this game is and how it’s biased towards democrats, but it definitely isn’t biased. Out of all of my games I’ve played I haven’t lost 1, and I chose Republican. I also have an idea for the game, maybe the devs could add random events that could boost momentum for a certain side in certain states, like maybe you or the other candidate said something bad about a state, and caused the state to lean more towards the opposing candidate’s side.

Fun Game - Taught Me A Lot About Politics!
This won’t be a long review. Fantastic game! I never knew what went into running for President. The key, as you may have seen, is to win, you need more electoral votes to win the presidency! So, campaign hard in battleground/swing states and please the American people and you just might win! Edit: You guys are gonna be updating this app for next year’s election, right? I loved playing this during the 2020 election. Can’t wait to see what you do!

Great! Few suggestions.
Great game! So much fun! Would love to be able to play with other Presidential elections. For instance, when Alaska and Hawaii first got to vote in 1960. It would be fun to play with other electoral votes. Also, one little thing. Sometimes, when I poll a State and it lands on my side, I will have no issues the state opposes and my opponent will have no issues the State supports. How, then, is it possible for my opponent to still win the State? That doesn’t seem fair.

This game is sooooo fun! It is pretty easy once you play a few times. Also, the people who say that this game always makes Republicans lose are wrong! I have played so many times with each party and I always win. Some ideas: I think that you should be able to completely customize your running mate and your own character more. Also, you should be able to choose from other, less popular, parties, or even create your own!

Excellent Game!
I don’t know why people think this is a hard game. You just need some basic knowledge of politics and to play the tutorial. I find the game very fun and entertaining. It’s all about strategy which I love a lot. It’s also realistic and full of customization. Overall a pretty good game. I’m only giving it four stars because there haven’t been any updates that make the game more fun. I definitely recommend this game to people who like strategy and politics. Solid game!

Great Game
It’s a really fun game , but it’s hard to win. If you get everything right you will most likely win. It’s a really great game for i civics and for those who might want to be president someday. If you ever want to be president you should definitely download this app. You can choose Republican or Democrat and you to against your opponent to try to Win the White House. I mean honestly if you ever want to run for president the real campaign would be hard since it isn’t just a game but it’s a great way to figure out what you kind of need to do.

exactly what you expect
I downloaded this game and played a couple rounds and won most of them. The strategy is to capitalize on the high electoral states and keep pushing support there. I ran all my games as republican just to see if the game was "what they say it is" and I can assure you with my first game of 369 to 169 that the republican candidates don't have a disadvantage. This is a very skill intensive game and you really have to know when to do things at the right time.

Add this one thing to get 5 stars
I like this game because it is easy to play and is educational with helping people learn more about issues and what each issue means. If y’all could add a multiplayer mode where u could play against your friends this would honestly be a much more replay-able game. Sometimes the cpu is kinda dumb it would be fun to play against a real person

Don’t listen to the people saying it’s biased they just probably don’t know how to play the game
I’ve played as both a democratic candidate and a republican candidate and I can tell you that it’s not biased. No matter the different beliefs that you pick, you can easily win if you know how. Stop assuming that everyone is out to get you because of your political party. That aside, this is a great game, 10/10 I enjoy playing it with my young sister

Overall Very Functional App
This is app is very educational and even has a choice of grade levels, which sets how hard the responses are in the debate and campaign. This game can be challenging but it is overall not that hard. I would recommend it for your child if he or she is 18 or under. My 8-year-old enjoys this app and plays it every day. I’ve watched him and the game style is very unique too. This is the fun, educational app for children!

Time for an Update
Probably one of the better election simulation games out there, but it’s definitely time for a major update. 1. The game presents little challenge after the third or fourth time played. 2. Fundraising in a state should give you a bonus in that state the same way running a tv ad or making an appearance. Perhaps changing the scale to fundraising - 1pt, media -2pts and appearances -3pts. 3. Each turn you should be allowed to do whatever you want with your money. I should be able to run as many ads as I have money for. I really like that if I’ve fundraised $3 I have to do all three options. I should be able to run 2 ads and make 1 appearance. 4. It’s kind of silly that the home state of the candidate and their running mate turn into battleground states or start with a lead for the opponent. Again, great game, time for an update and a bit more of a challenge

Very good! But can you add more?
I love this game so much I would go as far as putting it up there with some of the best political games out there. But is there any way you could add more like while your on the road you also have to stop and go to a couple of debates along the way. Maybe even after you will then you could serve your terms out as president.

One complaint
This game is really fun, but also way too easy. I played too many games of this to count and only lost once, and that was a game where I lost on purpose. There are other things I can picture that would make the game better but none that are as important as an increase in difficulty. All that needs to be done to fix this is to have the ai go to the bigger states more often.

Great game for kids
I remember playing this when I was younger, and I absolutely loved it. People are saying “Oh, it’s faced towards democrats.” That’s not true, I became a republican, named myself “I am republican,” and then I won. Plus, Quick strategy: If you’re a republican don’t poll California. California is always blue, and I like that, because that reflects real life. This is a great game, keep up the good work.

This game is super fun and time consuming. I would recommend it to anyone in fifth grade or higher because it's kind of hard. It's easy to play and it's educational, so if your parents are strict you can play it on school nights. I understand the elections way better now! Super fun, I totally recommend. BTW, don't get discouraged if you lose the first few times. You'll get the hang of it!

Good game but
The game is nice; however, after playing the games a few times I notice the AI always doing the exact same things and going for the exact same states, (Alabama and Arizona), and I’m sure it’s a bug, but hopefully when ICivics makes the next version of this game; they’ll make it less same throughout.

Can never seem to win!
I’ve played this game since I was in 4th grade and now I’m a freshman in high school (about to be a sophomore in a couple months). Anyways… I’ve had this game for over 5 years and I’VE NEVER WON!! A lot of people say this game is biased and always lets the democrats win, that is surely not true because I’ve played as a democrat over half of the time, and never win as a democrat. Now that I’m older and I know a lot more about government and politics than 5 years ago, I would think that this game would be a piece of cake; once again NOT TRUE!!!

Needs more parties.
I still love this game even though I’m kinda to old for it. Although this game is great and teacher kids about what sides believe in, I think that this game needs more choices for political parties because you can only go with either democrat and republican. Why can’t we have other parties join?

Game is a landslide
I Don’t Know Why But This Is SUPER HARD Even Though It Looks Like A Simple Easy Game IT IS NOT. I open The App The First Part Of Setting For President Is Pretty Easy. But Then It Just Gets Way To Hard I Just Think That The Devs Forgot To Make Like Difficulty Choose Like Easy,Normal, Hard, And Super Hard That Would Make It Fair For The Player But Right Now Nothing Is Changing. And Also Pepole Say That If Your The Republican You Don’t Win But… THAT IS NOT TRUE, I was A Democrat AND I STILL LOST. Please Fix The Game So It Could Be A Bit More Easy. Conclusion: I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP

Hey like the game
Hi, What I like about the game is how it lets you manage your campaign and it is also easier to dig up political dirt on your political opponent. One topic I think you guys should add to the issues in the Democratic\Republican debate is BLM protest because due to the ongoing protest it would make no sense on why you can’t talk about the issue since it is currently a hot issue in the U.S right now.
