Recently, I have been more interested in digging through IQ and trivia based games in the Apple App Store and when I was asked to review the “Movie Awards Trivia HD” app, I pounced on the offer. Another reason, I am a “as crazy as you get” movie fan & this app was right up in my alley. I have been using this app for the last couple of days and the has been impressive with a some great set of questions to put your movie skills to test.
Movie Awards Trivia HD is an iPad only app but there is a iPhone version available too. Both the iPhone and iPad are priced the same. The iPhone even has lite free version available for download. In this review, I tested the HD iPad version of the Movie Awards Trivia app developed by Everett Collection Inc.
Coming to the features of the app, the app seems to be made for Hollywood fans and especially contains questions on the Academy Awards or the Oscars as we like to call it. It resembles a movie database of Oscar winners and nominees but its not and that’s were the Trivia comes in to play. You are presented a multiple choice question and you must guess the right answer, its that simple. There are no negative points or a leader board, so feel free to just select a random answer if you are stuck. But almost all questions are related to the Oscars and this in-time gets tiring. The app supports a huge collection of questions, 1000 in all, which you can filter by time periods. You can change your option from the home screen and set your interest to questions from movies on the age of 1920s-1950s, 1960s-1970s or to the present. There are also provisions available to sort out the questions based on Actors and Actresses.
Once you start the game, you are given a question based on your category chosen. The interface is very good and the images are well displayed. You are given approximately 20 seconds for each question and you got to pick your answers within that time. For each correct answer, your points are increased and displayed on top. There is an option to easily share the questions to your Facebook account or by Email. On the negative side, this game sadly misses multiplayer features, which would be a nice addition. I am not sure, why Movie Awards Trivia didn’t work on landscape mode, which is a must feature for apps that runs on an iPad. Missing GameCenter is another drawback indeed!
Movie Awards Trivia is not a game for everyone, but I am sure the app won’t let you down if you have are interested in movies, actors, actresses and Hollywood in general. You can download the HD version of Movie Awards Trivia for just $0.99 that runs on an offer up to February 26th for Academy awards celebration!
