LumEnrich Inc., an import/export trading and consulting company based in New York yesterday announced the release and immediate availability of Clash of Candidates 2016 (v1.0), their fun new game title developed for iOS and Android devices.
Clash of Candidates 2016 lets players support their favorite presidential candidate by piloting the candidate to victory in a “classic dots and boxes game.”
Players can choose to play as Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Ted Cruz and beat their opponents by drawing straight lines between dots. The player who draws the line that encloses a 4-dot square wins that space, and his/her candidate of choice controls that space. At the end of the game, the candidate with the most completed boxes wins.
“We’re a small mobile game studio, and aren’t affiliated with any political party or candidate,” LumEnrich Inc. CEO Audrey Chen said. “We wanted to make a light-hearted game that holds a player’s interest, and with the 2016 Presidential election in the news right now, a presidential-themed take on classic mobile board games seemed like a fun idea.”
The game seems simple, but like the best board games, requires deep strategic thinking. Players can choose to match up their favorite candidate, against another candidate.
One wrong move can send a player from winning to losing, Chen said. “We chose this style of game because, like in a presidential campaign it requires strategic thinking to be successful. It isn’t easy,” she said.
