As much as we have tried to stay away… it’s happened, we finally got sucked into Trivia Crack. The game is the latest mobile title to take the App stores by storm, and we’re here to tell you if it lives up to the hype in our Trivia Crack Review.
Think you’re good at answering random questions? You are not alone as millions of folks think they know more than you do on any given day, and Trivia Crack is a way to prove it. There are subjects, but the questions in them are extremely random, so while you might know a lot about sports, you may not know squat about Polo.
Trivia Crack uses asynchronous multiplayer to set up your trivia duels, and you can go at it with contacts from Facebook or Twitter. Random opponents are an option as well if you don’t want to bug your friends, but as with most games of this nature, it pays to be social. Once you decide who you’ll play, you can choose from a classic match which requires you to collect characters or a challenge which pits you against several folks at once.
The actual gameplay behind Trivia Crack is as simple as it gets. You spin a big dial, and you get a question from whatever category the dial ends up on. You can use a “pass” of sorts if you are particularly poor at a subject, but you will have to fork over spin token to do so.
How long a game lasts depends on the mode (and your opponent), but they can be over in minutes or days due to the asynchronous nature of things. You’ll probably get stuck with a lot of no-shows with random opponents, but the game will end things on its own if they don’t show up.
In terms of the extras, has several power-ups that are available to extend your game. They cost coins, but you can earn plenty by playing or pick up some in the shop with real cash if you want to get a leg up in the game. There are also rankings, achievements, and the Question Factory. This feature is a bit overloaded at the moment, but it will allow you to suggest, rate or translate questions in the game.
Trivia Crack is a game that lives up to its namesake as it’s a hard game to put down once you get on a roll. The setup is a breeze to navigate, and the questions are varied enough to challenge anyone. There are millions of questions in the app as well, so it’s unlikely you’re going to run across the same ones often if at all. The only downside to Trivia Crack is the good old stamina timer that limits your gameplay somewhat, but it’s really not too much of a hindrance depending on how you play.
If you’re ready to give the big spinner a whirl, you can head on over to Google Play or the App store and pick up Trivia Crack for free. If you want it sans ads, you can pick up the paid version for $2.99.
