[prMac.com] Roedovre, Denmark - KA Innovation is both proud and excited to announce the release of the 'Brain or Monkey' iPhone game, which is the perfect app for everyone, who likes to have fun with their best friends and family. The game is unique in the way it uses the iPhone as a physical play object, which needs to be quickly passed between 2 or more players in close company. When the game is played at parties, family gatherings or at any other social gathering it will most likely create a phenomenal energy and high intensity levels. While the game play may be simple, most people will find it quite challenging to actually win the game. Winning the game is not only about general knowledge, it also requires the ability put this knowledge into play fast enough - and often quicker than you think.
The key objective of the 'Brain or Monkey' app is to find out who is the Brain and who is the Monkey. The Brain will be the person with the most IQ Points left, when the game is over, and the Monkey will be the person, who has lost all of his/her IQ Points.
A player draws a card with a simple question, activates the monkey, answers the question and quickly passes on the monkey (the mobile phone) to the next player, who then has to answer the same question, but with a different answer. Questions must be answered before the monkey has time to eat enough bananas. Questions are like: "Female names starting with 'A'?", "Car brands", or "Things you can buy at the bakery?"
Every time the monkey is passed to the next player the timer is reset by holding his or her thumb on the screen until a new answer has been provided. This goes on until a player gives a wrong answer to the same question or the monkey gets angry. An answer already mentioned by another player is also a wrong answer.
Every time a player loses a round, he/she loses IQ Points. The loser of the game is the first to reach the 'monkey' level (when all IQ Points have been lost). Game results can easily be published on Facebook and/or Twitter, if players want to raise the stakes (this should be agreed prior to starting the game).
The free game comes with a limited number of free questions, but players may upgrade to get additional buckets of unique trivia questions for only US$ 0.99 each. The questions used in the game are generally universal and have worldwide applicability, but the game also includes a special package with US specific questions. KA Innovation plans to include many more packages of new questions for the game and invites all players to contribute with suggestions for new questions or categories through the 'Brain or Monkey' website (see link below).
"This game will provide hours of fun with your best friends and family. At the same time, players will also train their ability to think fast," stated Soren Peter Kvist of KA Innovation. "While players are having fun, the trivia questions also provide a great learning opportunity for everyone".

'Brain or Monkey' definitely fulfills this purpose!", stated Soren Peter Kvist.
