Mobile Game Replaces Pokemon Creatures With Clinton, Trump

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — While some voters may wish the presidential candidates would just go away, Dartmouth College has created an app for those who want to find them around every corner.

Two college professors worked with developers to produce “HillaryDonald Go,” their take on the popular “Pokemon Go” mobile phone app.

Instead of searching for Pokemon creatures, those playing the new augmented-reality game must find the nearest Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump “booth” and send their preferred candidate “good vibes” that allow them to grow in support.

Players viewing the candidates will see them react with humorous expressions and hear them recite soundbites from the campaign trail.

The college says the game can be played in nearly 1 million locations in parks, libraries, monuments, cafes and other public places across the United States.
