About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

Mobile Game Review of "Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader '09"

"Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader" is a game show on American TV, where players match wits with common trivia questions and see if they can do better than some 5th graders. It's basically similar to "Millionaire", except this tops out at 100,000...

Basically, you pick a kid, and then the question. Each kid specialize in two subjects. You decide which subject to pick. The trick here is you can "cheat" 3 ways... You can peek at the kid's answer (which can be wrong), you can copy the kid's answer without peeking, and finally, if you both answer wrong, you are automatically 'saved'. The cheat only works once each though...

Questions are typical trivia like "What's the current name of country which was known as British Honduras?" (Answer: Belize)

Graphics are rather primitive, as the kids are cartoony, and in fact the whole thing is cartoony. At least it uses the whole screen on the enV, and not just the middle part.

All in all, this trivia game lacks the flair of other trivia games. You can find better, really.

Overall rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Good gimmick with 5th graders, easy interface
Cons: You sure these are 5th grade questions? Lousy look overall.
