I was a huge fan of Quiz Climber when it came out this summer. Blending trivia gaming with the competitive element of challenging friends was an inspired touch. It was the kind of game that turned a 5 minute play into an hour or more of desperately trying to get ahead of a friend. Well, I'd better get used to those sleepless nights again as there's a new version: Quiz Climber Rivals!
An updated version of Quiz Climber, Rivals offers challenging new questions covering ten different categories. Weekly competitions are there for players out to compete against their friends, plus there's also a global leaderboard to compare amongst the world.
Most interestingly is the new average answer time score which measures how fast the player answers correctly. An ideal way to encourage players to answer accurately and fast.
Oh and while I'm the bearer of good news, there's a worldwide competition connected with Quiz Climber Rivals! Simply correctly answer 40 questions in a row, take a screenshot of the high score, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad2. Full details are available on the Relentless Software site.
