I’m not a big fan of pop quizzes, however, I am a huge fan of quiz games, especially when a Quizzel (or flying squirrel) is involved and the game is published by Chillingo (yup, Angry Birds and Cut the Rope). Their latest addition, in cahoots with Relentless Software, is Quiz Climber.
While there is a free ad-supported version, you’ll have no reason not to purchase the $1.99 game as it is not only challenging and fun, but also is a great way to challenge your friends in a game of the brain. Continue reading Quiz Climber is Trivia App Entertainment for iPhone
