MigrantP's comments:
Hi, I'm the lead developer on Uncle Slam! It's a new game that just came out in December for iPad, by Handelabra Studio. Uncle Slam pits President versus President in physics-based boxing action! Washington vs. Nixon, Clinton vs. Lincoln.. or Taft vs. Fillmore?

We've looked at all of the fighting games on iPad and iPhone and they all do the same thing - virtual buttons on the screen. We wanted none of that and built in direct touch controls that make the game really fun and dynamic to play.

The game has all original art and music, and plenty of unlockable content to discover. For those technically inclined - we built the game engine on cocos2d and Box2D which gives us great performance.

Let me know what you think! We're right now working on Universal, an iPhone/iPod touch version, as well as DLC support to bring the full presidential roster to the game in time.

Normally the price is $4.99 but we're celebrating the New Year (a Presidential Election year at that) with a one week 99 sale. Check it out!

Not me, though i agree the name is good. The screenshots aren't too inspiring... So how's the actual gameplay?

Well it is free for this week, and now Universal - so maybe you'll change your mind? =)

There's an iPhone gameplay video here:
