BlinkMaster - iPad app that puts your instincts to the test

in Entertainment (E)

[] Phoenix, Arizona - Which famous personality will cross your mind if you saw the following images flash in front of you: a tiara, a crashed car and a road tunnel? There's a very high chance that your mind visualized Princess Diana by the time you were done reading the sentence.

That is the simple idea behind BlinkMaster, a fun and engaging game that puts the "power of thinking, without thinking" into your hands. This new game app for the iPad, with iPhone and iPod versions to be released soon, is loosely based on the principles of Malcolm Gladwell's best seller Blink - the Power of Thinking Without Thinking. It has great graphics and a multiple-player game option, where up to four teams can play simultaneously. This makes BlinkMaster perfect for parties, family gatherings, or just fun time on your own.

Think about it. What we see in a blink of an eye can provide us with enough information to make a connection between visual clues and famous people, movies, books, places, and more. BlinkMaster builds on the human ability to connect random visual clues to facts we know. The app takes the traditional concept of trivia games to a whole new level.

Debjani Sen, cofounder of AppChakra, the start-up behind the app, says, "BlinkMaster builds on the fun of Pictionary(TM), Charades(TM), and Trivial Pursuit(TM). It is something that everyone (and not just trivia buffs) can enjoy playing for hours." She goes on to say, "Most trivia apps are boring. They are standard text-based questions with multiple-choice answers designed to appeal to serious quizzers. BlinkMaster is refreshingly different. It is visually stimulating and appeals to everyone. The game is as fun as it is addictive. Try it alone or with friends, and you will be surprised at how you can't stop playing."

Download the BlinkMaster app and start to play, individually, with friends, or even with kids. Each game play starts with a two-second "blink" of nine visual clues (pictures) related to a famous personality, place, movie, or a book. The images are then covered with colored tiles with points on them depending on how closely the clue is connected to the correct answer.

As you reveal a clue by tapping on a tile, its point value is deducted from your starting score. Your goal is to keep your score as high as possible while guessing the correct answer.

Two versions of BlinkMaster are available, a completely "free" teaser pack with no irritating ads and a premium one featuring almost 300 questions with more than 2,500 visual clues for only $1.99, with free updates of future question packs as they are available. The premium BlinkMaster also allows multiple users to play and track their scores on the same device and has a team play option, where up to four teams can play with each other.
