Penguin Young Readers has launched an app based around their Who Was/Is… series, and it is everything I wanted it to be and more! The app includes two options: Adventure and Arcade. In the Adventure, you go from famous person to famous person learning about their life then being challenged to choose the correct face when given a fact. The Arcade feature is the same idea just without the trail and achievements. I can see this app being a hit at home and at school!
- 4,500+ questions taken from the books to put your knowledge to the test—more than some of your favorite classic trivia games.
- 85 levels of Adventure mode; complete the tasks and collect rewards as you play. Endless play in Arcade mode; try to beat your family and friends’ high scores!
- Power-ups to improve your score and help you beat levels.
- Learn before you play: timelines and facts from the books at the start of each level.
- Beautiful, fun design, music, and sound effects.
- Premium game with no ads, in-app purchases, or external links.
