Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: NAME THAT TUNE
SongPop has a good music trivia hook but it's too light on content for repeat listenings.

Facetrainer: Guess The Friend From The Distorted Facebook Photo

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 17th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

According to recent research, the average number of Facebook friends that a user has is 130. But how well do those users know their friends? Facetrainer is a game that sets out to test just how well people know their friends.

The app goes through the user's friends list, saving their profile pictures. Then, it randomly chooses a photo and distorts it, leaving players to guess who that friend is. The faster they guess, the more points they gain.

4 different game modes are available, offering different levels of difficulty. Alongside that are numerous distortion effects, as well as the ability to share scores worldwide.

Facetrainer is a distinctly casual affair but it's fun to test just how well players know their friends, especially if they have hundreds of friends on the network. Once guessed, they can even post the distorted images to their Facebook wall to share with friends.

Facetrainer is available now and costs $0.99.

Relentless Software Releases Quiz Climber Rivals

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 8th, 2011
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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 [email protected] and be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad2. Full details are available on the Relentless Software site.

Scene It? Pixel Flix Movies Finally Combines the Two Best Visual Medias

Posted by Rob Rich on August 18th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Film trivia buffs and retro video game lovers rejoice! Screenlife, makers of all things Scene It? on the App Store, have just releasedScene It? Pixel Flix. Okay so it's not a real combination of the two, but rather a trivia game dressed-up in vaguely 8-bit visuals. Still, it's a neat idea and certainly grabbed my attention.

Players take on the role of a pock-marked theater usher as they attempt to complete a gauntlet of movie related trivia questions and ultimately square-off against the theater's "boss." It follows the same basic structure as most other titles in the genre with multiple categories to choose from (Leading Ladies, Horror, etc...) and several different methods of answering questions on a timer. My personal favorite is the one that recreates famous movie scenes in pixel form and asks players to guess the film. Watching an 8-bit rendition of Sarah Connor blasting away at that liquid metal guy is hilarious.

Pixel Flix is free (ad supported) and sitting in the App Store right now.The base experience is bound to keep small-time trivia hounds busy, but the elite can also buy add-ons such as new genre questions and power-ups through in-app purchases. Just remember to clear some space before downloading as it's a somewhat hefty 160 MB.
