Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. No matter where in the world you live you’re bound to know a few footie fans! It may not be the number one sport in North America but its popularity has grown exponentially in the last few years spurred on by the popularity of MLS and the English Premiere League. If you consider yourself one of soccer’s greatest fans you’ll enjoy the Sky Sports Soccer Quiz app. This app includes a huge database of trivia questions on all your favorite teams and leagues. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Trivia games are always popular and there are all kinds of them in the App Store. Some of the more popular ones include multiple category choices but it’s nice when you come across an app that specializes in trivia in one specific category. This allows the developer to include tons of questions on your favorite topic to really testing and expanding your knowledge. The Sky Sports Soccer Quiz app falls firmly in this latter category. This is probably one of the most complete soccer-themed quiz games you’re likely to find.
For the most part this is a great app but it does have a couple of issues. First off the text and pictures on the navigation screens are far too small. If you don’t have the best eyesight you’ll find this app a little frustrating. The other issue I had with this one is the loading time: each screen takes a few seconds to load and there are a lot of prompts you have to answer before you can start playing the actual game. This app will require 58.2 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How to Play
What’s great about this app is that it actually turns the trivia game into a simulated soccer match. When you answer enough questions correctly in a row your team scores a goal. Your game is timed so when the clock runs out if you’ve scored more goals than your opponent, you win the game. It’s a cool twist on trivia that makes the game a lot of fun. If you want to play against a real human opponent you’ll have to log on with your Facebook account.
If you ever watched the popular quiz show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire this game will be very familiar to you. It includes lifelines if you’re stuck on a question and each question provides you with four potential answers to choose from. It’s a great format that’s guaranteed to keep you entertained.
