Ratings and Reviews
Fun but questions need refreshing.
Good fun but can be irritatingly specific in accepting answers. A question on religious places required “Westminster Abbey” (“Westminster” got 100) and “St Marks” (“St Marks basilica” got 100). The single player game is multiple choice, like the earlier series, while the two-player game allows free text. Questions haven’t been updated since about 2015, and it’s irritating having to remember the old cost of Prom tickets, previous tv presenters and countries’ former names etc. The free questions ran out quickly but extra questions (which are also old) don’t cost much. I play whenever I can!
Good but sometimes frustrating
I play this most days depending on how long it takes my opponent to answer! Sometimes questions are repeated but you must expect that with any game.
I do get frustrated when I give an answer that would be correct on the show but is deemed wrong on the app i.e. "Graham LeSaux" and "Graham Le Saux". Also lost a game to an opponent that wrote "Smith" when clearly they had no idea.
Also, would like a direct messaging option. I have had over 400 games against one opponent and I don't even know their real name!
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 play...as 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.
