CNET Australia - App of the day! 05/11/2012 "The questions are actually pretty good, and we like the way the gameplay is put together"
Most trivia games about Australia are boring, but "How Aussie are you?" takes a fun twist to it!
Australia has amazing cities and a great culture, but how much do you know about it?
How about learning about it in a fun, addictive trivia game?
"How Aussie are you?" is an awesome quiz game testing your knowledge of the country. Targeted for tourists, international students, newcomers, coming to Australia and all Aussies!
The purpose of the game of is earn ★$1,000,000★ by answering trivia questions about Australia!
100 questions about the major cities (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide)
240 questions to dig deeper in the Australia Way of Life (Slang, Sports, Culture, Politics, Geography, History)
Don't know the answer? Post the question on Twitter and if somebody replies to your tweet, the answers will be displayed real time on the twitter screen!
Nobody replied to your tweet? Use the Hide One button and one wrong answer will be hidden!!
Looks amazing on the new iPad retina!
Here is the concept in detail:
Go through the 5 biggest cities in Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide and after every 4 questions about the city, you will have to select a category among 6 (Slang, Sports, Culture, Politics, Geography and History). Then you will have 30 seconds to answers as many questions as you can and you will earn money for every correct answer. (the amount depends on the level of difficulty, easy for tourists, hard for Aussies).
Once you completed all the cities, if you manage to earn $1,000,000 you will have to go through the Blitz Trivia (1 minute - 30 questions) to unlock the vault and get your money!
If after completing all the cities you don't have enough money, the game will assign you a city randomely so
you can earn more money.

Disclaimer: To answer the question asked by one of our beta tester Juliet, if you win the game, we won't send you $1,000,000 (as it is only a virtual currency) but we promise you that you will learn something about this amazing country!! :)

Ratings and Reviews
To the game designers...thank you...I liked the free sample ( yes you other reviewers there is a free sample!!!) enough to buy the full to buy the full version. Wow....to all the moaning cheapskates...just the cost of a cup of coffee...really...why all the complaints!!!?? The game designers don't make these games just so you can have fun for free. So ...grow up.
Review on Aussie App
This is a must to buy. It's amazing how much culture, politics, geography and even Aussie slang you know. It's very educational for both adults and children, very addictive you are determined to finish all levels!
A good idea for a game. However, not allowing someone to even play the game without paying is a setback. Some of the information is incorrect as I am an Aussie and know myself. This game has a lot of potential, but obviously won't get as popular as others as you need to pay to play.
