[prMac.com] Belgrade, Serbia - Small minds discuss "people", average minds discuss "events", great minds play Quizarium. Do you think those guys from TV quiz shows are full of themselves? You could show them all, but can't be bothered to get there? Well, now you can take a quiz alone or fight other quizzees even while taking a bath. And win substantial prizes! Meet the new free app for iPhone - Quizarium, created by On5 Games studio, the developers of the enthralling Charadium app.
Enjoying yourself, sharing fun and information with friends - that's what multiple iPhone apps are about. iPhone is full of features that bring gaming to a whole new level. No wonder multiple game apps available for this device enjoy a booming popularity. If you fancy something more intellectually challenging than online shooting, then Quizarium for iPhone is bound to stimulate your brain.
The name speaks for itself. Quizarium is a familiar answer-the-question thing, but far more advanced in terms of game features and payoff. You can play on your own or compete against a whole bunch of smarty pants. When the question is asked, you and your rivals have one minute to get it right. Until the correct answer is given you have as many guesses as you can possibly generate. If you hesitate for about 15 seconds, you get a hint: 1st letter, 2nd letter and so on. The play-area is designed so that nothing can distract you from thinking. All you need is at your hand: a window where questions and answers are displayed, a keyboard to type in your answers, and naturally, your own intellect to do it right and fast.
You can pick subjects you really like - there's 10 to choose from. And don't worry, there's plenty of fun as well as serious categories. To get the most out of your iPhone, personalize your game by choosing a visual design theme, distinguish yourself in chat with the color you like. Share your achievements via Twitter and Facebook and rate questions. As the app is included into Plus social play network you have a fair chance of getting on leaderboards. If you are not in a competitive mood there is a single-player offline mode, with the local questions database updated with new questions regularly.
To spice up your quizzing, look out for tournaments with valuable prizes. Not only do you defeat your competitors but learn interesting facts as well. Really, what's the point of getting on TV when you can get all the gaming fun and substantial rewards at the tap of your fingers with Quizarium? Invite your friends to join your game and play till you believe you know everything. Get Quizarium for free, exercise your brain, and win!
Quizarium will have weekly top player lists, the winners will be determined every week on Monday night. The first short week's (Mar 12 to Mar 15) 5 top players will get iTunes Store gift cards (a $50 card for the winner, $20 for the second place and $10 cards for the next three players). On the second week 10 top players will be awarded with more gift cards. The third week's contest will be special: the trophy for the first place will be an Apple iPad. And of course there will be even more interesting prizes in the future. Don't miss your chance to become a winner!
