Uncle Slam is FREE this week, and now Universal!

Uncle Slam came out in December for iPad, and now it's available for iPhone too. To celebrate Presidents Day, the game is free all week! 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.

Uncle Slam also has downloadable Presidents - the first ones available are George W. Bush and Barack Obama. JFK and more are coming very soon!

Controls are a bit wonky... but it's a fun little game.

This is hilarious.
Controls work fine for me (iPod 4G iOS 5.0.1)
Thanks for the freebie.
Can't wait to see who will be added. I'm from the uk so how about the queen or prince charles as an extra character?
