If you are a video game savant, then Game Box Challenge, from MarketingRobot UK, is going to test your expertise through and through. This guessing game will challenge even the most seasoned gamers, and dabbles across multiple gaming genres with an array of mysterious descriptions.
It allows gamers to fill in the blanks and match vague descriptions with actual game titles, testing your memory in the process.
From shoot ‘em up titles to role-playing games, thrillers, spillers and more; you’ll have had to of spent your fair share of time in front of a controller to outwit this comprehensive trivia app!
First, you ‘ll let the screen load up and present you with the first description. Then, you’ll be given a video game tagline, and a few accompanying paragraphs as well. The only problem is, every few words will be blanked out, in order to not give too much of the description away. This leaves it up to you to take a stab at the right title, to see if you’ve got your gaming staples memorized!
For example, one description includes the following; “A dark presence stalks the small town of ____, pushing _____ to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save the woman he loves.”
If you have an idea of what this title may be describing, click the bottom of the screen where an open tab reads. “What game is this?” Then, scroll across a few dozen titles to select the right choice!
Some of these descriptions are vivid enough to totally give the correct answer away, however sometimes you’ll draw a total blank and need to refresh the screen to try again.
Concept and Functionality:
If you’ve got your gaming titles memorized, then you’ll breeze through this one in no time at all. If you are a bit foggy on some of these classics, you’re likely to strike out a couple of times at least before hitting the nail on the head.
The app itself looks pretty spiffy, and boasts a vivid yellow and orange hue throughout. When perusing through the game images, the photos themselves look to be lacking full resolution, and could probably be improved by being uploaded in High-Def to make the app as a whole look a bit glossier.
The app itself runs smoothly and was played multiple times without a single crash or lag.
The app is free and will be a smash with those who love both video game classics and trivia. There’s some slight room for aesthetic improvement, as well as maybe a bit more in-app variation of gaming modes, but in general, this app is fresh and fun.
Game Box Challenge won’t cost you a penny, and will let you take a trip down a digital memory lane.
Game Box Challenge requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
