Kick the Politician

Developer: Apptastic Studio

Release Date: 2011


Genre: arcade
Setting: cartoon

Kick the Politician is one of the most unique games that I have come across in a while to help kill time. The whole point behind the game is to destress by allowing the player to take out his or her frustration at the following world leaders: Barack Obama; Mitt Romney; George Bush; Osama Bin Laden; Saddam Hussein; Sarah Palin; Adolph Hitler; George Osborne; Margaret Thatcher; or Tony Blair.

You use various weapons, including guns, nunchucks, machine guns, tomatoes, land mines, grenades, boxing gloves, pepper spray, flame throwers, paint ball guns and more. Each politician has a different reaction when attacked. Beating up on these politicians really is a great stress reliever, especially for the politically minded. Mzl

I really enjoyed punishing all the historical evil-doers (such as Hitler) and watching them react in their own ways. Some scream, others cry like babies — but generally, it all will satisfy your inner sadist in a fun and nonlethal way.

Kick the Politician’s cartoonish graphic style adds to the overall fun factor, and the game rewards the best player with a number of interesting achievements. Kick the Politician is also a free game, so that is another reason to download it and have a good time.

About the Author, Sasa Pocek (A.K.A Asterix)

I have been addicted to gaming since I played Pong for the first time when I was six years old. In the meantime, I have played thousands of games (all possible genres) on various systems from Atari 7800 and ZX Spectrum to Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga 500, PCs (Intel 8086 to the latest Intel and AMD chipsets), all Nintendo systems, all Sony Playstation systems, all Sega systems and finally Microsoft's XBox. Aside from gaming, I love to read (sci-fi, military history, politics, mysteries, puzzles...) and love to play chess which I do on a daily basis...
