Thud! Presidents is a fun trivia game with a balancing puzzle aspect and includes over 1,000 questions within 40 levels that will keep older children and their families busy for quite some time.
Children and adults alike will enjoy answering these multiple choice questions where they will need to choose the president (from a provided list) who best answers questions such as Who was the earliest president?; Who was the heaviest president?; and Who said certain famous quotes?
Although there is no study section within this app, players can learn from their mistakes and gain knowledge from a process of elimination, whittling wrong answers down until the correct president is the last man standing.
Correct answers then are needed to be stacked on a platform, dropped from a magnet after having been suspended, which can be moved to align these shapes to where players would like them placed for best stacking.
I enjoy that the shapes vary, such as shield, eagle, or star, all having their own unique responses to gravity and physics as they become balanced on platforms which may be flat or on a incline for an added challenge.
Two levels are included: Brainy – which is said to test knowledge and Insanity – said to be more challenging for those who know even more about U.S. history, making this app a family game that adults as well as children grade school and up can participate in.
Thud! Presidents is a fun way to flex one’s knowledge of presidents. I can see this app become a favorite both in educational as well as in family settings past this upcoming election.

As Franklin D. Roosevelt said: "We have nothing to fear but THUD itself!"*
*Actually, there is no evidence that FDR said this, but if he had an iPhone or iPad running iOS 4 or greater, he most certainly would have mentioned this in a fireside chat with America.
