[prMac.com] Haledon, New Jersey - Ghost Mobile today introduces Fourganize 1.2 for iOS. Available for free, Fourganize 1.2 offers a fast-paced and social trivia experience unlike any other available for iOS users. Based on ranking (or fourganizing) 4 answers in a list, instead of the traditional multiple-choice format, Fourganize will never ask you the same question twice.
Incorporating unorthodox, modern questions into many of the 13 categories available at launch, Fourganize is a more fun alternative to the many boring, slow trivia games in the App Store. Categories include Video Games, Internet, and even a Food category, in addition to more traditional categories like Geography, History, Baseball and Basketball.
Fourganize is also set apart from other trivia apps with it's unique social format. Instead of the usual format of simply challenging a friend, Fourganize's online play is based on "jackpots". Users can create a jackpot, and specify a category, entry fee (in-game coin currency), and end time. Anyone in the world can pay the fee and try their best to get the top score. When the jackpot expires, the winner gets the entire pot of coins. This allows players to ascend the world coin rankings and get themselves listed in the top 100 very quickly.
The game's monetization strategy is simple: bet your coins on a jackpot and lose, and you'll need to buy more coins. But if you're good, the game doesn't require you to spend a penny. Fourganize also offers additional power-ups (such as hints, a lifeline from Google, or combo multipliers) and premium categories that can be unlocked with coins won from jackpots.
Aside from public jackpots, players can opt to just play against their Facebook friends, or simply create a 2-player heads-up challenge. And the end of every game played in Fourganize, players are notified of the score's ranking locally, among their own friends, and worldwide.
