Over 2,500 unique questions without requiring an In-App Purchase that are NOT random. You'll never see the same question twice.
Millionaire Pursuit offers the best choice for a true trivia challenge. While other trivia games are simply a random barrage of questions that could include questions of similar topics, Millionaire Pursuit guarantees questions of a unique topic with each gameplay....
For the first time, strategy is an element of the game. There are 14 categories and a random category. To reach the $1 Million you must answer a question from each category. It is up to you in deciding the order of answering these questions... kind of.
Order of Questions:
Before each question, 4 categories will be offered to you to choose the question from. These 4 will be randomly selected from the list of unanswered categories. If you do not have a strong knowledge of Art and it is offered to you as one of the 4 offered for the $100 question, choose it then and get it out of the way. Art will never be offered to you again, in your pursuit of the $1 Million. If you know sports inside and out, save it for much later in the game. With each question level, comes greater difficulty.
You have three lifelines at your disposal: 50/50, Audience Polling and Friend Phoning. What separates this game from most is the additional element of strategy in choosing which friend(s) to bring in with you as your Phone-A-Friend. There are 4 characters to choose from. Each character has a unique profile and will offer answers in accordance to that profile. Would Liz, a 17 year old girl know the answer to a question in Pop Culture from the year 2012... of course she would. Would Mr. Jones, a 40 year old father of two know the answer to the name of a children's book that contains a certain character... probably. Would Dr. Bernstein, a 69 year old doctor know anything about the latest tech gadget... not likely, but he'll know a lot about science and what other 69 year olds might know. There are over 10,000 unique character profile driven responses to the over 2500 questions.
There is no need for In-App purchases for additional questions. Over 2500 questions come as default with the purchase of the game, equally distributed among the 14 default categories. There are 5 additional "specialized" categories available for purchase. Your choice of 1 of these categories can be unlocked for FREE when you reach a career winnings of $400,000... so if you don't know the $250,000 or $125,000 question, walking away might be worth it in pursuit of unlocking that specialized category.

What's New in Version 1.2.1
2 question corrections.
The timer is kind of nice because it gives me the opportunity to not overthink and to trust my gut. I enjoy some of the repeats because it tests my short term memory and makes me feel good that I remembered the answer.
Great graphics and I am learning a lot in a fun way. If there is an answer I'm unsure is correct, I'll google it to confirm its accuracy and learn more about it.
A question's answer I found to be incorrect is "Which character was not on Saved by the Bell"... The game says its A.C. Slater, but thats not correct. He was the jock in the tv show.
Another question with incorrect answers is: What is the first Harry Potter book? It says Philosophers Stone is correct when it should say Sorcerers Stone.
I love being able to play this game by myself and not rely on any online people to take part or have to wait any amount of time to keep playing. Thanks!
Great for bridging waiting times anywhere! Ocasional repeats and some
Occasionally repeats questions and had a wrong answer once (you can always google it afterwards!) but all in all it is a great option to play a game that is not too addictive and still hooks you during "dead moments" like waiting at your doctor's.
Overall this is a very good and interesting app. As few issues though-- once you reach the $400K level you are supposed to get a free category, so I chose one but there are no instructions on how to swap that one for an existing one. The music before each question is a bit annoying.
