GuessWhat Quiz: Written iPhone App Review
Here at the iPhone App Review, we’ve mentioned more than once that we’re quite into puzzle games. In fact, we might go so far as to say that it’s our favorite genre of game on iOS. With that in mind, we’re particularly pumped to bring you GuessWhatQuiz by developer Philipp Sidler in today’s full-length review. The app presents a unique and exciting concept that will keep you guessing for hours. Best of all, it costs hardly anything in the App Store, making it a tremendous value. For our full thoughts on this killer application, you need only to slide on down below the break.
Concept and Gameplay
The idea behind GuessWhatQuiz may not be wholly original, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting to see on the iPhone, nor does it make it any less fun. Essentially, the game uses the classic way-too-zoomed-in method of puzzling to grab the viewer’s attention. The app presents the player with a photo which has been blown up to mammoth proportions. The user must then think on it, take a gander or two, and start typing in guesses. If they guess what the picture is correctly, they’ll be handed a wad of points. They’ll also get bonus points for doing this without using many of the hints that are included with each level. To be honest, this can be rather difficult at times. Furthermore, the fact that the app makes you type in your guesses (rather than supplying you with a multiple choice list) makes it all the more challenging. Thankfully, though this is more fun than it is difficult, which means you’ll have a blast working your way through the multiple levels included.
Graphics and Design
We have to admit, GuessWhatQuiz doesn’t look too bad, either. The app supports a pleasant and easy-to-navigate interface, which we had no problems working into place. We did find some of the hints a little unhelpful, though: This could easily be ironed out in future updates, though. Aside from this, we loved the option to share our current photo to Facebook to ask for help. It’s an nifty option that enables us to get our friends in on the action: An always welcome approach to gaming on the iPhone.
We can hardly knock GuessWhatQuiz for its value, either. The app is only a dollar, which makes it a bargain no matter how you slice it. It also comes with a wealth of levels, which means you’ll have plenty of opportunity to spend some quality time with the app during the morning commute, or even just during a boring stand in the queue. All in all, GuessWhatQuiz is a brilliant addition to any iOS gamer’s repertoire, and we highly recommend it to puzzle fans who need a new fix.
GuessWhatQuiz requires iOS 4.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
