Features & Use
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Android version: 4.1.2
Quizoid - Trivia Quiz's main menu is set up in a pretty spartan way with only three buttons: New Game, High scores and Get Quizoi Pro.
Start up the game and dive right into a world of questions and multiple answers, complete with nice, sleek looking animations. Every correct answer garners you 100 points. The level of difficulty rises in accordance with how often you answer questions correctly. Should you ever get really stuck, you can make use of three jokers: the 50:50 (divides the number of possible answers in half), the 2x (you can guess twice) and the veto (which lets you change the question). You can also switch category.
Speaking of categories, they are:
- General knowledge
- Food & Drink
- Art & Literature
- Space & Astronomy
- Knowledge & Technology
Seeing as there are quite a few categories, it isn't all that likely that questions will start repeating.
Quizoid is a well made and fun quiz game that is sure to help you while away a few minutes (or even hours) here and there. The design is a rather pleasant surprise and overall the app performed smoothly.
Screen & Controls
Quizoid - Trivia Quiz comes in Holo design which – surprisingly – suits this game rather well. The animations, as mentioned, strike us as elegant and sleek.
Controls are intuitive save for the joker for which there is no real explanation at the beginning of the game, meaning you just have to try it out to see what it does.
Speed & Stability
Quizoid - Trivia Quiz performed well throughout our test runs.
Quizoid - Trivia Quiz is free and available from the App Center. The Pro version costs €1.99 and comes with two more game modes (only hard questions or select a category) and no ads.
