President Elect: 1988 Edition description

An "extended" version of the same game, in its initial form is not released on PC (new was added, campaign data, 1988). The genre is a step-by-step "political" strategy where the player assumes the role of "Manager" of the campaign one of the candidates for the presidency of the United States. The goal is to win the upcoming elections.

Each turn is one week, a total of nine moves. Within each turn need, focusing on the map of the country, to decide in what state and how it should intensify its efforts in the promotion of the population (based on the number of existing PAP s – "political action points"). The actions are very different: you can be somewhere in front of potential voters or to criticize their competitors, and to participate in debates with them or, conversely, to abandon it.

At the end of each turn includes demonstration of the results of the poll that allows you to learn whether some of the fruits of our efforts. An interesting detail is that during the "election night" counting of votes may continue (real time!) from two to six hours, but can be done so that the result will be given in fifteen seconds.

A choice of seven historical scenarios (elections from 1960 to 1988, the authorities can lead to one of the three candidates), and even anti-historical and hypothetical scenarios. To play the game and the three of us for one computer. Almost all of the game – text, of graphics – only map of the USA. However, to play this in some sense unique (even if similar and present) the game is still very interesting, even though she is (including political considerations) is not suitable for everyone.
