New iOS game turns presidential election into a smackdown


A new game available for iOS turns the 2012 presidential election into a political smackdown.

The new game called "Vote!!!" lets players choose between taking on the role of President Barack Obama or assumed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Players are then taken into a scene that appears to be the stage of a debate, but the candidates quickly get into a fighting stance and begin swinging at each other with their microphones.

According to Mashable.com, creators teamed up with several pro-voting organizations to create the seemingly silly game. Their intention was to encourage gamers to vote and raise awareness on campaign issues.
