Trivia games are fun to play and they’re a great way to learn new facts and keep your mind sharp. It’s even better when a trivia game offers a wide variety of subjects to test your knowledge.
Brains – A Trivia Adventure! challenges trivia game fans in a completely new way. Created by The Sneaky Bruno Games Inc., this free adventure quiz game for iPhone and iPad offers plenty for players, but there are a few quirks that keep the game from being truly great.
Concept and Gameplay:
Brains – A Trivia Adventure! aims to be more than just a game that tests your wits. Instead, the game is designed to lead players through an adventure, complete with a background story. In order to progress to the next level, you need to answer the majority of questions correctly.
Brains – A Trivia Adventure! lets you choose from a variety of quiz topics when you start a level. Answering questions is as simple as choosing from one of four options, but you have to be timely.
One thing that did irritate me about the game is the fact that the font is awfully small and difficult to read. Also, the questions can be very complex and wordy, making it difficult for young kids to understand them.
Like most trivia games, Brains – A Trivia Adventure! includes a few extra features to help players edge ahead if they don’t have the answer to a question on the tip of their tongue.
There are the usual hints and boosters to help players, but naturally you have a limited amount until you have to purchase more.
When it comes to numbers, players can play as one of four different characters, encounter (and hopefully defeat) 32 villains, and play through 640 stages across 16 different worlds.
Essentially this means you’ll likely never complete the game. If you do, however, it’ll be quite the accomplishment.
Brains – A Trivia Adventure! is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. Regarding in-app purchases, there’s a market in-game where you can purchase coins and additional power ups.
Overall, I think Brains – A Trivia Adventure! is off to a good start when it comes to concept, but the game could use a little more in the way of features.
This includes a more kid friendly option where questions are a bit simpler. Also, the interface could be tweaked so that menus are easier to navigate and text is easier to read.
An Android version of Brains – A Trivia Adventure! is also available from the Google Play store.
Brains – A Trivia Adventure! requires iOS 7.0 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.
