Quiz Climber is a general knowledge quiz game released by Chillingo Ltd.
Do you know more about films and music than your friends? Does your mum know more about the planets than you? Is sport your specialist subject? Are you the brainiac who always wins quizzes? Quiz Climber lets you compete against your friends and family in a social challenge to prove who really is the biggest know-it-all.
The basics of the game, has you trying to climb as high as you can on a tree, the more questions answered the higher you get. The idea is to really get your social network involved and then you will be able to see who is the best out of general knowledge between you. However, this falls down a little, as you are given lifelines if you purchase them for real cash, so if you are dumb with lots of money you can still climb higher than your broke friends.
At the end of each game you gain a percentage towards getting a new life-line for free.
The game is controlled by simply tapping on the screen to get your next question and then selecting one of the four multiple choice answers.
The graphics and sounds are both nice, and better than your usual quiz game.
On the upside:
- Great quiz with lots of general knowledge questions (a little US based)
- Cute quiz interface
On the downside:
- A little expensive (when really it is just removing ads.)
- Questions start to repeat to quickly.
- For me, a little too much social intergration built in.
- Pushs a little too much towards in app purchases.
Overall, this is a great use of the iPad 2 and the smart cover, however, also means the game will have a limited amout of users in the iOS community. The quiz making is good, and works well if you are using the quiz on someone else. There is application is great for parents who want to give little quizzes to there children. There is an ad supported version that you can download for free.
