It's basically just a reskin of Advance Wars.

SilverwareGames responds:

We put in a lot of new stuff too like Talking Head Mode with actual quotes and the little retaliation '!' but yes, the heart of the game is Advance Wars. We even used some of the original game's attack and defend statistics from some of the fan forums.

I love advance wars so it was a lot of fun to make a version of it with American politicians in there.

I would have to agree with other people, Mitt Romney's special charges way too fast and can be devastating.

SilverwareGames responds:

If someone could post how many turns they can beat the game as Romney vs Obama I'd appreciate it. I was actually worried that Obama was a bit too strong b/c I'm a vote win guy.

(Edit: Thanks to everyone's feedback I've changed the game balance. Let me know if its wrong.)

Fun FUN game. A great game for advance war fans, or any real turn base Strategy fans. The political bonus is especially great, even though there is clearly a minor push for republicanism. At any rate, the game is fun, and surprisingly informative. Most of it is the basic credibility arguments, but I learned a few extra things while playing.

One big issue though. In the final mission romney gets a new power. and it is WAAAY too unfair. In some turns it can be used on you (if you choose obama) a good 4-5 times. Considering that it's an area wide -1 nuke, it can stack up and quickly turn the tide for any player going as romney. If you guys could nerf that it'd be great. Otherwise, great game!

SilverwareGames responds:

Thanks, I'll think about nerfing Romney in the debates. You should know that I lean a bit left and thought the game did too. Interesting to hear your take on it!

i like the concept. a good tactics game is hard to find. and the theme is good but...

romney's co ability cant seem to work on a target building if there is a enemy on it unlike what was basically said in the tutorial.so its pointless.

and the lack of diversity in the units and how they work is dissapointing. no one to capture stretches of the ground by posting signs up along the streets or ranged capturing multiple buildings over time with negative adds .im guessing its morale that you deplete from the enemies so why isnt capturing and damaging the enemies done at the same time?

i like the first advance wars and days of ruin (mech tanks and mad dashes for silos is dumb). this is a simplified advance wars with a political twist without getting to see pery blown up in a bus by romney .

4 stars because its better than most of the other games i tested recently and it probably took alot of time to make

SilverwareGames responds:

If you use Suppression carefully you can make a vote win much easier. Keep in mind that that the other candidate does not know which houses are suppressed so you can send them on a wild goose chase if you are clever about it. Also, if you wait a turn the other side usually leaves the city. I'll try to make the tutorial more clear on that.

Perfect for Advance Wars Fans :)
