Contact quiz is a great iPhone game that draws on memory skills while incorporating the utility of getting to know your contacts’ numbers by heart, therefore completely worth the $2.99 it costs. It is a one person puzzler with three levels. I sometimes stress about the need to memorize my numbers just in case my phone ends up in a pool of water, but I can’t even imagine doing all that work as a precaution for something that has a four percent chance of happening, which is why I think this game is a great idea.
During the first level the player is given a picture with a name and number and the person is to determine whether this information is true or false. If you answer correctly you get some words of encouragement-‘WOW! Good Job!’-is just one of the many phrases on loop, but if you answer incorrectly you get just the opposite-a jolting, almost shameful vibration followed by something like, ‘Dude, what are you smoking?’ The rounds are also timed. At the end of the rounds you’ll be presented with a review showing your points from correct answers, bonus points from time, and total score. If you rack up enough points in the first round you get to move onto the second. The second round is multiple choice. You are given a picture and a number and you are to match up who that number belongs to from the list of four under it.
When you first open the game there are four options: Play the game, game rules, tell a friend, and game settings. In game settings you have the power to control how many questions/round, and whether sound, funny response, and vibrate are on or off.
One major gripe I had with this game is that no matter what my was in round 2, I always got to the Game Over ending with an overview that states ‘you need to score a minimum of 128 points to go to the next level.’ And then it gives me my total score of 200. There is definitely a misconnect there and it happens every time. I have not been able to get to the elusive final level three.
As I started to play it over and over I began memorizing area codes, which works well when your phone is full of LA numbers-there must be 20 area codes in my phone. The game does get addicting, but after playing so many times and seeing the same contacts over and over all the while not being able to get to round three, I’m ready to move on.
