QuizUp App Review: It’s challenging, thought provoking and tests the absolute limits of your knowledge. QuizUp, a quiz app by Plain Vanilla Games, puts classic knowledge games such as Trivial Pursuit to shame with a modern twist. With over 400 topics to choose from, it would be hard to find a category of questions that didn’t suit your specific niche. However, it proves equally as difficult to choose a category to start with, given the amount of topic selection users have.
When you begin, there are six rounds in a single set of questions including the bonus round where players can earn double the points. QuizUp also matches you with other players based on the information you provide when you sign up.
Starting off in a topic such as general knowledge may seem like a walk in the park, but you’ll be surprised at how much you don’t know. At the same time, it’s quite rewarding when you’re able to answer an entire set of questions with no problem.
QuizUp App Review continued: The point ranking also gives this particular app a much more competitive edge. At the top of the screen, a small blue circle will count down ten seconds, which is the maximum amount of time allotted for a question. By answering the question faster than your opponent, you are awarded more points. Answer incorrectly and your phone will buzz, a subtle reminder that you’ve sadly lost this round. Luckily, the correct answer will appear before the next round begins. Even if you lose, you’re a little bit smarter.
There are countless quiz and trivia games on the market, so why should you choose this one? Well, the reasons are obvious. First, the design is absolutely flawless. You’re able to customize your profile to your hearts content. And clean, smooth text with engaging graphics makes for a pleasant experience with no advertisements. I’ll say that again, no advertisements!
Secondly, with so many topics to choose from: dogs, cats, general knowledge, science, arts, technology, business, weather, video games, and so many subsections among them there’s something for everyone.
QuizUp App Review continued: And finally, QuizUp does not demand personal information or links to annoy your fellow Facebook friends. It makes opting out of the ‘social media’ experience as easy as a click of a button, while other quiz apps do not have such leeway. That’s not to say connecting with friends over social media would not be a fun way to play this game (I would definitely recommend it), but QuizUp just makes the choice easy.
All in all, app gamers looking for a brain booster should play QuizUp until their eyes are sore and bloodshot. You’d be surprised by how much knowledge you end up holding on to – useless or not. For example, did you know Diana Price is the alter ego of Wonder Woman?
