When we saw Pocket Politics for the first time we thought we had just seen something entirely new on Google Play – an app where you can become a politician and maybe even the President of the United States.
Well, only the second part is possible – it turns out that Pocket Politics is one of these games where the goal is to make a gazillion dollars – albeit only virtual. The app makes you “invest” into certain people that will later bring you tons of cash. You will invest in other things as well and they will bring you even more money. The goal is to reach certain amounts of money that will get you elected and with time you should be able to even reach the White House. The gameplay as you can imagine is simple – just tap on an object that can generate money such as a gas station and the money will start coming. Then when you have more money you can buy other similar money-generating objects and then watch how the money comes to you. With time you will be able to create a money-generating empire that will bring you to the White House – this is when the game ends. Needless to say just the gameplay hints that Pocket Politics comes with 2D visuals only but there can’t be any other way – the way the game should be played eliminates 3D visuals altogether. In addition the game comes with simple sound effects.
Pocket Politics is a fun game, especially if you like to watch how money comes to you (ah, why isn’t this money real). The problem of the game is that it tries to mix politics with money-making and this is where it does not really succeed. Moreover there are other strictly money-making games on Google Play but if you want to try something new from the same genre then Pocket Politics should be okay.
Pocket Politics is here on Google Play. Enjoy it!
