Ecliptic's comments:
Hey guys! Apple finally approved Political Beatdown after going through atleast 5 or 6 revisions. It is only a shadow of the original but atleast its out there and is still a fun game. I will be adding a campeign mode which will be another gameplay mode that will keep the excitement.

What were the characters before? Were they caricatures of real-life politicians? That sucks if Apple made you remove them

Thanks for the comments!

Before the characters were real life politicians. I had hired a great artist to do tasteful caricatures of all the relevant politicians that were in the current news. I had Cheney with a shotgun and Hillary with a bat that had Bill's name on it. Those two were like a wild card that would smack you every once in awhile which gave the game play even more level of depth.

I will be adding more depth to the game play now that apple has finally approved the application. I wasn't thinking this would have even made it through since it was my 5th revision.

Thanks for the comments guys and please tell your friends!
