An entertaining quiz, an addictive game, and a new way to test and improve your vocabulary!

Quizzitive offers 10 difficulty levels, with quiz types from “Speed Drill” to “Name That Thing.” Master the words, beat your personal best, and see how your scores compare to the crowd.
The first two levels of the game are free. An in-app purchase unlocks the full game and turns off ads.

Not a lot for the money!
While the game itself is intriguing and somewhat challenging, there are only 10 levels that can easily be completed in a matter of hours. The games are fun but could stand some tweaking when it comes to more specific definitions.
Additionally, there is a major glitch in level 9 that won't allow you to advance at all. Quite frustrating when you have paid the piper and the piper chooses to abdicate to an unknown source for game plan and leaves the player hanging. Bottom line, fix the game and add more levels. Why offer a game with huge issues before they are all resolved? Come on people, get it right and it will be a smashing success!
Hope to see an update VERY SOON which obliterates all my concerns!
Straightforward and effective. I've played a few times a day for a week or so and have already implemented some new words into my every day vocabulary. I could go for maybe two more different games and the ability to play back through a level without resetting all scores and starting at the ground, but I suppose it really hammers the lower level words in like your basic pronouns. Single word definitions aren't always the best... so they could use some tightening up on those. Best two bucks I've spent on a "game", but it isn't perfect. Tighten up the terse definitions and add another game or two for that fifth star.

Thank you. Talk about a brain.
Very often the maxim "less is more" is proven to be correct. So don't expect shiny lights and blinking, flashing graphics or even a single button with which to kill, kill, kill. Nor a match 3 game. All of which have you mindlessly match 3 like items seemingly to make them disappear from your life.
However, if you have a special tendency towards things like Scrabble or Boggle, Word Welder etc. or you just miss the English language; welcome to Nirvana.
And you're learning at the same time. What a concept!
