As we’re approaching Christmas, my thoughts are turning to many important things – food, booze and TRIVIA.
So I’ve ended up re-installing an app I used to have, called QuizUp (this link is to the desktop site, but I play the mobile version).
For those unfamiliar, you can play on your own and try and beat your high score, or play a random opponent (in real time or at different times), or find someone you know and play against them. The format is multiple choice and there are six questions plus a bonus one in a round against another player, or just ongoing questions until you flunk if you play alone. It’s pretty addictive.
There are loads of different categories (1200 apparently!) covering a broad range of topics – my favourites are The X Files, Dexter, Food, Movies and Backwards Words.
Unfortunately, since I last played it, it’s a bit laggy and glitchy. But I’m still pretty addicted. I currently rank number 2 in the UK for The X Files for the month of November. Which might mean I’m playing it a tad too much. Or that I’m just shit hot. Or that no one plays that category.
Anyway… does anyone else use QuizUp? Or can you recommend a good trivia app?
I played C64 quiz on iOS a few years back. You get 4 screenshots and you have to match it to a game title.
There was a high score and there were a couple of players who were constantly trying to better each others score. Of course after some time it just became a speed redlex game. In the end, I was at #1 and got a message from the runner up to congratulate me that I beat the creator at his own game.
P.S. : I searched it on the app store, expecting it to be not there anymore (being 8-bit instead of 64-bit). But it actually still is, not for free anymore though. (It’s the one by Fake Fish)
