Quiz Up : Game play
Users start a game by choosing a topic of interest from various available categories . The topics have a wide range like movies and television shows, literary and musical topics, sports and games, history, science and geography, etc.
After the user picks a topic, they have the ability to challenge a friend or to compete against a random player from the world. Users can connect through a social media platform such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ which allows the user to see current friends using the app. The user can also sign into QuizUp with an email address and not connect with the social media site.
When the user has challenged someone, and the opposing user agrees to play, the match begins. Each match consist of six normal rounds and one bonus round. In each of the normal rounds, the same question is given to each player with a time lap of 10 seconds, to choose the correct answer from given four alternatives. Users are provided for the accuracy and speed of their answer with a maximum of 20 points per round. Points totals are doubled during the bonus rounds. The user will earn one point fewer per second they wait, with a minimum of 10 points if they answer correctly, incorrect answers earn zero. The maximum points possible to score in a single game is 160. The player with the most points wins the match.
Exp and Points
Players earn exp points in a category after completing a game in that category. The points depends on how well they performed during the game.
Total points scored are maximum 160.
A finishing bonus 40 points.
A victory bonus if you win you get additional 100 points, halved in case of draw.
There are possible ways to not to receive the finish bonus. This includes communications error.
The maximum points per game is 300. If one plays daily, as a “Daily Reward” QuizUp gives XP Multiplier, which increased from 1x to 2x, 0.2 at a time, i.e 1.2, 1.4 and soon.
