What a waste of money


I can't actually believe I spent £1.99 on this.

Firstly, why in single player mode do you repeat the questions? It's hardly difficult to remember what you selected last time. The mechanics of the game are nothing like the TV show and you just pick an answer from a list.

Aesthetically, the app is pretty badly designed, there are numerous bugs and errors which just come down to laziness. Secondly, there is no push for me to add friends to the app - meaning that I have limited people to play against. Don't get me even started on the palavah to even connect to FB. I decided to play against a random but it seems very few people I am still waiting and it's been over 24 hours. Notifications are switched on but im updated about nothing. Surely you could learn a thing or two from quiz games such as Quizup?

This is just a complete poor show. If I could get my money back I would but sadly, it's developers like this that just bring down the trade and make people hold on to their money.

Good, could be better


Enjoy the game, but surely if someone hasn't answered in a length of time, they should be removed? I've got about 10 people sitting in my waiting for opponent queue for about 4 months! *Edit- found out how to remove them!

Would also like there more questions like there are on the show. You know, ones where the answer "Central African Republic" can be used!

Wrong answers


I've had a few correct answers been given as wrong, checks google to confirm, oh look, I was right.

Michael Cera movies - oh I'll try this is the end. Where he plays himself. Oh look, I'm wrong again.

Update your answers! I mean if your question is too ambiguous then take it out. Getting pretty frustrating giving correct answers and getting shafted!

Developer Response

Hi there,

In this particular instance, the question's extra info states that we will not accept movies where he plays himself. The questions come directly from the TV show but due to the large database, there are going to be some errors. We will do our best to resolve them and thanks for your patience!
