The free game delivers more than 100 puzzles that span video games from recent history to those from the days when grayscale screens were all the rage. VideoGameQuiz isn't an overly complicated game to pick up and play, but it is challenging enough to be a head-scratcher at times.
If you think you know video games, VideoGameQuiz is a fun way to prove it.
The primary menu for VideoGameQuiz offers a simple design with options to jump into gameplay, view the game's options, rate the game in the Windows Store, make in-app purchases (via gaming coins) and view other Windows 10 apps from the developer.
VideoGameQuiz delivers more than 100 trivia challenges that are spread out across progressively unlocked chapters. In a nutshell, the game presents you with a screenshot from a video game, and you must enter the name of the game. You can jump around the various levels within a chapter or take them in order.
For each correctly identified game, you earn coins that can be used to buy "tracks" (hints) that can help point you in the right direction in solving the puzzle. There are three types of tracks available, and they reveal:
- The first letter of each word in the answer.
- The first and last letter of each word in the answer.
- The entire answer.
The more of the answer revealed, the more coins the track costs. If you run out of coins to buy tracks with, there is the option to replenish your account through in-app purchases of coins.
Overall impression of VideoGameQuiz
VideoGameQuiz is a surprisingly fun Windows 10 Mobile game. The video games highlighted in the trivia questions include classics and the modern titles. VideoGameQuiz is not only a good measure of your video gaming experience but also a decent walk down memory lane.
Some may find VideoGameQuiz lacking, and the game could definitely use a little more meat on its bones. Some animated GIFs from the games or a collection of letters to build your answers from would be nice.
As is, VideoGameQuiz is a fun Windows 10 Mobile game to spend a little down time with. It reminds you of how far video gaming has progressed, and you may be surprised how tough some of these games are to identify.
