So are you bored? You reach for your phone only to find the same old games that you already turned around a few times already. You reach for Google Play, only to be disappointed in their choice of games. If you need something new and challenging, something to entertain your brain, and not only to practice your tapping dynamics, then I give you – My Party Quiz, a brand new brain game to practice multiple skills!
As you search for a game online, you’ll mostly see different kinds of emoticons, smiling or frowning upon you. The graphics of the game really follow the idea of emoticons – backgrounds, buttons and all the rest is in the playful mode of emoticons.
Once you download it, it’s easy to recognize that it was made majorly for smartphone users – the game is really tap-friendly, and all the controls are at the reach of your fingertips, so to say.
The welcoming screen offers you four different types of games – words, math, memory or melody. Once you choose your preference you go on to choose the level (easy, medium or hard) and you’re good to play. When entering the game mode, you can see bubbles that are all the rage! You make words from letters in bubbles, or do your math with numbers in bubbles, or you memorize emoticons from the bubbles and repeat the written melody… Well you know, bubbles.
On your right is your score and your tokens, which you use for hints, and on your left is the hint option and timer that tick-tacks, but don’t pay too much attention to that, or you’ll match nothing! While you play music and sounds go on to support that playful feeling that emoticons brought and you’ll feel like you’re a part of some tv quiz!
Moreover, you’ve probably played some similar types of this game – be it memory or scrabble, or some that require math or melody. However, this is one of the first that has all four of them! It’s based on the “continue the sequence” strategy and that’s what you’ll do – go from bubble to bubble, making out words out of letters or melodies out of the notes.
The game has a time limit, and you can play for 90 seconds, trying to get the best score. After five attempts you won’t be able to play again for another 120 minutes, giving you enough time to cool off before trying again. However, you can try other disciplines, also for five times.
Pros and Cons
What is best with this game is that it is quite challenging. You need to think, and to think fast, all the while connecting only bubbles that are next to each other. Sounds simple enough, but trust me – once you see those letters they seem like awfully random bunch, unwilling to reveal meaningful word!
One of the cons is that the game is quite large, you can’t play it on the phone that has less than 2GB of RAM memory. They kind of resolved this by breaking it in four games (one for each discipline) that you can separately download and play.
And now we come to that famous limit in number of tries. Doesn’t seem very inviting, having to wait for two hours before playing again. But than again, it’s perfect if you don’t want to lose yourself in the game, forgetting about the lunch in the oven, or missing your stop in a bus (or missing a bus altogether)!
The game is played all over the world, apparently, and by people of all ages! It’s great for kids as they learn words and simple math, but also for older generations, especially if they aren’t native English speakers – they find it challenging and fun. Judging by the comments, some moms are playing too, and some grannies, just to stay in shape!
So there you have it – a game that’s both fun and challenging for your brain. Give it a shot – it free!
