Reviews for "I AM PRESIDENT"

President for 23 years, everything maxed at 100%, suddenly someone blows up the parliament oh well.

Not much of a game tbh, I suppose you can go very far just by clicking randomly on whatever option

It's meh. If you add on to it then it could be great!

Well... if it isn't another Trump parody. Well actually not really... this is a very simplified game about ruling the state, similar to Democracy 3 for example, but really really dumbed down. The pixel art was relatively nice the random events were good(although the alien attack one seemed a bit out of place)... and well the game really doesn't have much to offer in terms of what you can do. It also seems that playing as a dictatorship is much easier... now I'm not saying it wouldn't be in real life, and that other games also have that... but I think this game makes it much harder to play otherwise... very few options, limited interactions and a few random events that's about it. At least it has an achievements system and a scoreboard so that's nice. I made a let's play of it right here: https://youtu.be/R3ba25fkPuQ . My overall feeling is kind of... "eeeh" but still it was some fun so keep making better game.

Nice video, i had fun watching it :)

Yeah, the game is kind of basic. Was more an experiment. Had some issues balancing all the stats and yes there really could have been more events.

Thanks for playing.

The game is beaten in the following way:
1) mild punishments, a lot of food, normal control, normal laws
2) invest almost exclusively in security and infrastructure
3) when every stat maxed to 100%, no crime, no fear, budget cannot be assigned, keep the settings in 2)
4) every UFO attack reduce temporarily to normal food and spend most in infrastructure
3) after the second assassination attempt increase control.

Popularity and happiness will slowly grow by themselves with the above strategy.
Fear appears with hard laws or punishments, but those 1-5% are tolerable in the first couple of years for reducing crime.

My review to the author: the game is overly simple but still quite interesting. Would be more captivating if there were more events, more stats to control (e.g. foreign relations, education, research) and if the quarters could be skipped by assigning a default budget strategy (automatically applying the budget as previously applied). Have a look at the game "Rebuild 2" (zombie game), I spent countless hours in this kind of game due to how detailed the stats are and how well it continued to a new game after the game itself ended.

First Try
-No food
-Fake Elections
- Unhuman Laws
- Unhuman Punishments
-Total Control
- Puts entire budget into Security
Dies of a heart attack a few cycles later

10/10 Would Reign of Terror Again
