    Battle your favorite (or least favorite) political personalities to gain electoral votes as you ascend to the presidency. Election Year Knockout is a comical boxing game for iOS and Android inspired by the PunchOut series.


    Our closed alpha test includes 7 different opponents including Jab Bush, Chief Warrin’, Birdie Sanders and of course a hilarious final boss! The game starts easy but quickly ramps up in difficulty. Don’t get discouraged and see if you have what it takes to rise to the presidency in 2020!


    The game is slated to launch worldwide in February 2020.
