While I might have to think about committing myself to gamers anonymous sometime soon, it’s clear that the iPhone is partially responsible for enabling my gaming habit. My iPhone allows me to delve into games anytime for any reason…free time, waiting in lines, boring family functions, in transit, teensy snippets of free time. Today, I rode the train and checked out Photo Quiz for Friends.
Photo Quiz for Friends gives you several options from playing alone, using a single iPhone with a handful of friends, as well as using up to 4 different iDevices online. So now you might be saying “Okay, but how do you play?”. Let me get straight to the gameplay. It all starts with an image that’s revealed over time and as soon as you know what the image is you tap on the screen and select the answer before your friends. Select it right and you’ll be rewarded with points. Answer it even faster and you’ll grab even more points.That’s Photo Quiz for Friends in a nutshell!
There’s also the friend factor. There’s a good assortment of images and more than likely you and you friend(s) will both be seeing the image for the first time so trying to frantically tap the screen first as well as trying to distract others is satisfyingly amusing. So while Photo Quiz for Friends may be simple in nature, having something fun to distract you while waiting is a tricky thing to do and Photo Quiz for Friends manages to entertain for a short snippet of time quit well.
The Bottom Line: 6.5/10 (Fair)
It’s free and it offers some entertainment when you want to fill time with friends.
