Presidents Run is a humorous, endless running type game from developer React Games. Like most running games of this sort, you are tasked with trying to see how far your character can run while collecting vote tokens along the way. You’ll have to dodge enemies and obstacles by jumping over them, but you’ll have help from special power ups in the form of shows that you can use to gain an advantage. Before you start the game however, you’ll have to choose your favorite candidate to run as and each step you take goes towards the overall PresidentsRun.com poll to see who is the most popular candidate.
Presidents Run is a very simple game to pick up and play. Just choose which candidate you want to use, buy him/her and you’re ready to run. The game is pretty straight forward. Your candidate runs, tap the screen to jump. That’s it. Jump over obstacles, enemies, and jump to collect votes and power ups. Nothing too fancy but you’ll find Presidents Run to be quite addictive. For those who want to get more involved in the game, there are challenges that you can try to beat which will help unlock even more votes. You’ll probably want to do them however as votes help you buy things in the store.
Even if you’re not very political, Presidents Run is a fun casual game that will help pass the time. The character designs are humorous and the animations in the game are pretty smooth. It’s a solid game and is another great game in the endless running genre.
