Visually appealing, Movie Challenge provides entertainment when you have a few minutes to kill or even an hour. Featuring a very slick feel, responsive control, and fun sound effects Movie Challenge is the must-have movie trivia application for the iPhone. First off MT is broken down by different genres and directors. For each you are presented with options such as: Trivia, True or False, Quotes, Order, Jumble, What Year?, and ‘Preview’ which are timed. As you progress you unlock further genres and are scored based on your responses.
I found all of the modes fun and they did a good job of keeping things varied. I especially liked the Trivia, True and False, and Order. They really make you think. The only mode I came to dread was the hangman like ‘Preview’ which I felt had less to do with trivia and was fairly random. I’m sure it would require a lot of space, but a ‘Guess the Screenshot’ mode would be neat where you had to name a film based on a random screen capture. Movie Challenge also offers what are known as “power-ups” these are meant to help you along the way. Each power-up is different according to the type of mode you are playing.
At $1.99 you can’t go wrong with Movie Challenge. It is a fun way to test your film knowledge. I consider myself a pretty big film buff and I was pleasantly surprised by being stumped by some questions while feeling proud that I knew others. With three difficulties to master Movie Challenge has plenty of content to bring you back time and time again. Movie Challenge is the must-have movie trivia application for the iPhone.
