Reviews for "I AM PRESIDENT"

I played through it once, it was fun.
I can't get past the first term in all my other games because my guy keeps randomly dying of heart attacks. Is there a hidden stat that increases the chance of a heart attack? I can't play even play it anymore. Would probably be a 4.5/5, but it's unplayable thanks to random heart attacks. Am I just really unlucky?

Blobzone responds:

When you are too unpopular and people are unhappy you will die of an "heart attack" :)

I died of a heart attack. 72 years 3 quarters.
Total control, inhuman laws, inhuman punishment, no food.
0% Popularity, 0% Infrastructure, 100% Security, 0% Happiness. 100% Fear, 0% Crime.
2 Alien Attacks, 9 Assassination Attempts (2 attempted bombings, 7 Gunman)

(I started to wonder if I had broke the game. My security never dropped below 99%, even though I was putting all my points towards popularity. LOL)

I've never tried to be a dictator before in any game, but I wondered how far I could take it.

Blobzone responds:

Maybe you should quit whatever you are doing now and become a dictator instead? Seems like its in your blood :3

Pretty easy game. Start by setting hard punishments and hard laws, with normal food, no control, and free elections. Sort-of like how our founding fathers started things.
For stats, maintain everything but gradually push infrastructure up by the maintain points, plus 5 more each turn to get it to 100. Then continue maintaining, with focus on happiness. Then popularity, then security. Do it right, and you'll have 100 on all stats, and run an excess of budget every turn. I'm running on my 25th year now, and wondering if there's an end.

100% security
still gets blown up.

Great game! :D

Very interesting. it gets rather easy to find one of several "niches" with the system though. People with polar opposite governments in the comments are all getting no crime and 100% across the board by simply balancing the agenda so they can CORRECT the issues their gov creates via the points system. In short, too much leniency with points allows for almost any government with extremes that are equal (2 low extremes and 2 high extremes) to survive via damage control. RNG also messes with you a lot at the beginning depending on your intended gov, since on my first day in office I was shot (before I could make any adjustments) for my first method and got aliens the first two days of my third method.

Just in my playthrough alone, I went with four different methods that got me all the medals easily. My method starting off with a lot of control, a lot of food food, and normal-to-low laws & punishments (depending on if I needed more points to save other things while I poured a ton into security). This helped me survive the assassinations but not get reelected. I then tried to make a full dictatorship, which got me secret medal 12. The other two methods came from the comments-- Popope's got me positive awards, reelection in real elections, and secret medal 13, while Piexe Aereo's method got me through the fake election, medal 12 again, and (incidentally when I messed up at first) secret medal 14.
