App description: Donald Trump's sentient hair is Trumpifying the animals! Combine chains of hands to punch them back into their natural state.

Animals under the control of Trump's hair walk to the right as you combine chains of hands to send punches at them. Stop them before they reach the center line! As you progress, new Trumpified beasts with different tactics appear.

FEATURES
Use the help of Beaver Sanders, Hillary Landshark, and even Paul "Cool as Ice" Ryan to slow them down.
Tiny hands? Not a problem, the game's interface adjusts to both phones and tablets.
Three different endless areas including the Trail, the infamous Wall, and finally the Convention. Each area has a twist on the main mechanic.
Longer chains power up your fists for yuuuuge results!

This game is meant as a piece of oddball humor and not meant to knock you over the head with my own politics. Enjoy!

Why hello!

Look, I know there are a lot of anti Trump games being rushed to the market, but that guy is an easy target for comedy. And I've actually been working on this game for a couple years. You see a couple months ago I was finishing up production on it and I said to myself, "Self? You know what would make this game even better? Replace all the enemies with Donald-Trump-Infected animals that you can punch until they explode." And so my game became:




And here's my wonderful trailer. You're gonna love it.




The gameplay mashes up familiar mechanics. You're gonna love it.


You can tear down the wall. Hispanics will love it.


Vote with your fists. Hit him so hard.

Dear Icon, we miss you

Anyone know how to get the icon to show up in the thread? I have the url wrapped in the tags, but no deal. Should I not include the Http? Should I squint my eyes and ponder it while scratching my beard?

I've been getting some positive feedback elsewhere. But let me know what your criticisms, I can take it! And it helps me grow as a dev.


And growth is good.

Those GIFs are too funny!

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Im not a trump supporter, but I don't get it. I never understood the motivation to develop politicaly themed games. It's a shame too, an obviously talented dev spending time and effort on something that, statistically, may only appeal to about half the (US) market, and even less in the globally.

I get ya gmatter. The truth is I had been making this game for a while and realized that breaking through the crowd was going to be near impossible. So it felt like a bit of a waste to just drop it on the store as it was. At the same time I was thinking of all this funny imagery of trump (partially out of anger admittedly) and thought, well if the game is not gonna get any attention anyway, I might as well use it as a vehicle for these jokes.

So yea, it's limiting, but when I have a joke in mind I just can't let it go. It gets me in trouble some times.
