[prMac.com] Tampa, Florida - Renowned learning apps developer Happi Papi has today released a new tabletop quiz app concept where everybody can compete on equal terms. Breaking away from today's traditional trivia app format of playing a faceless opponent over the Internet, QuizFlick Jr instead pits kids against parents, subordinates against bosses and boyfriends against girlfriends in a social gaming experience on a shared device.
In addition to besting your opponents face to face in a game of trivia, QuizFlick Jr adds an extra dimension with built-in flick games. Simply put, players compete for balls by answering quiz questions. Once a player has won 10 balls the game moves on to part two where all players try to score points by flicking their earned balls against different goals.
"We love trivia but with QuizFlick Jr we didn't want to create just another quiz app," says Patrick Larson of Happi Papi. "Instead, we wanted to create an app where people of all ages could show off on equal terms," Patrick continues.
Happi Papi's way of leveling the playing field was to create two sets of trivia questions, one for younger players and one for older players. They also designed flicking games to add a dimension that caters to the non-trivia buffs in your party.
"We are in the app business," says Patrick Larson, "but we still want people to interact with each other in the real world. For that to happen you have to create a game that is both quick and fun and also gives people of different abilities an equal opportunity to gloat," he continues.
If Happi Papi will be able to draw trivia players online back to the kitchen or break room table remains to be seen but the concept looks interesting. The fact that kids now have a way of showing their parents how much they actually know should be enough for QuizFlick to be considered for family game night.
