Trivia games are entertaining and educational ways to pass the time. Music Quiz Game is available from both the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Stores and tests your knowledge of song lyrics. The trivia game also comes in as today's AdDuplex HERO App.
What is the HERO Apps program you ask? It is a promotional campaign for Windows Phone and Windows developers on the AdDuplex Network and partners AdDuplex with myAppFree, AppDeals, PluralSight and Windows Central to deliver a host of benefits to the top apps and games each month. Our role in the HERO App campaign is to offer a little exposure to these titles by sharing them with you, our readers.
Today, Music Quiz Game takes center stage.
The layout of Music Quiz Game is rather simple. The opening menu presents you with options to play the game or view the About section that covers developer's credits, additional apps from the developer, rating the game, etc.
Game play is spread out across four levels that are progressively unlocked. The trivia questions offer you a snippet of the songs' lyrics and you have to guess the song's title. Songs span various genres including pop, rock and alternative songs that were released between 2000 and 2015.
Just below the lyrics you will find a collection of letters that will be used to build the song's title. Tap on a letter to add it in sequence and if you need to remove a letter from the answer, just tap on it as well.
Music Quiz Game starts you out with a few hundred coins and as you correctly answer the trivia questions you will earn more coins. The coins can be used to buy hints that are accessible by tapping on the orange lightbulb icon in the upper right corner. Hints include exposing a correct letter, removing a letter and completely solving the puzzle.
I was expecting to hear a snippet of the song itself but having to identify a song solely by the written lyrics adds to the game's challenge. Those more familiar with today's music may be able to zip through these trivia questions, but I can see some who are more accustomed to older song titles (Pink Floyd, Journey, Queen, etc.) struggle a little with these puzzles.
Music Quiz Game is a free title, available from both the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Stores. If you give the game a try, let us know what you think of Music Quiz Game in the comments below.

Zune had a neat trivia game that pulled songs from your music collection and quizzed you on them. I wonder if Microsoft could set us up with an updated version of that app?
I'd love that!
