Prepare to get political, as Positech Games have brought their political strategy game, Democracy 3, onto the iPad. Democracy 3 allows players to become the ruler of a country, giving them the power to fully control political policies and take the country in any direction they want to. Whilst raising taxes to sort out climate control or legalising the death penalty may sound like good ideas at the time, players will also have to try and please as many of the 21 different voter groups the game's virtual voters fall into. Annoy them enough and you may get voted out at the next election - if you manage to survive that long, that is.

Democracy 3 is available for the iPad now for $9.99.
