How to Play

A page of cards for each of the first 8 presidents will be shown in random positions on your screen. Each card is color-coded to represent the political party and only their portrait and full name are shown. Drag the POTUS whose sequence number in the order of presidents matches the badge number in the center of the screen. For example, if the badge shows 1, drag George Washington’s card to it because George Washington is the 1st president. Complete all the presidents on the page to advance to the next set.

Study Mode

Don’t worry if you don’t know them yet or can’t get through all the presidents before 3 wrong attempts. You can switch Study mode on. The presidents will be lined up in order with facts (including their political party, years in office, terms served, and sequence number) showing. Adjust the slider to start on any page.

Premium

Premium features include more information on every POTUS such as Vice President, First Lady, date of birth, age at inauguration, other political offices held, and much, much more! There is even space for you to add your own custom notes.

Context-sensitive buttons and links also allow you to view lists of POTUSes that share a common trait. For example, suppose you are viewing Theodore Roosevelt. When you tap the “42” link, you will list all the POTUSes that were inaugurated in their 40s. Or tap the “Governor” link to view all POTUSes who served as Governor. Press the “Republican” button to list all the Republican POTUSes. Access premium features in Study mode, by tapping a POTUS. If you have not yet purchased the premium features, view a sample by tapping George Washington, otherwise you will be asked if you want to purchase POTUS in Order Premium. You can also make the in-app purchase from the About screen.

Behind POTUS in Order

I used Unity (2018.4.13f1 Personal, 2020.2.4f1 from version 2.0, 2023.1.13f1 from version 2.2) to develop this 2D game and designed it to make learning U.S. history a little more fun and visual.
