NBC’s The Office Challenge is a game that brings you the hand on experience of the award winning American mockumentary ‘The Office’ on NBC, starring 4 central characters; the titular Assistant (to the) Regional Manager Dwight Schrute, the paper salesman Jim Halpert, the receptionist Pam Beesly and the accountant Kevin Malone.

36 micro games to get you most of the experience and keep you addicted to the phone. Each character has a set of mini-games revolving around its traits in the series.
Unlock characters as the game progresses. Play the survival mode to unleash real logical analyzing and quick responsiveness.
Get nostalgic with the complete Office experience using your iPhone in multiple ways to play the games.
Given instructions at the start of each game to minimize your learning curve.
Simple ‘Pick n Play’ controls and Intuitive gameplay to enhance your game experience.

Standout Features:
• Vivid art style with charming music and sound effects to catalyze your gaming experience.

• Featuring the funniest scenarios from the series like, Flonkerton – A race wherein your legs are tied to paper boxes and you have to reach the finish line before your opponent does. Table Top Golf – Wherein you need to aim and pot a golf ball inside a hole on the table. Paintball – Take your opponents out before they knock you down with your ink-pen at office, and many more.

• A fun filling experience for all fans of the series, and a whole new experience for those who are new to this award winning super comedy.

I have not taken the leap on the iphone version of this game however I have played the exact same game on other mobile devices. I was not impressed, most of the games are far too easy, there are only about 5 hard ones, there is replayability with an endless mode, however most likely when you are done with the mini games you will not go back and replay.

here is a review from a site about the non-iphone version which has the same levels and features:

i'm not going to tell anyone to stay away from it like the plague, but unless you are a true fan and can't get enough office, it's probably not for you. the office mini golf game was a very good game, this is just a so so game. nothing special. if you need an office fix the mini golf game is a good pickup, plus it lets you watch episodes which is very cool!

A bit off topic, but if you want mini-games go with Cooking Star. They just updated with a new mini-game (which is awesome), bringing it to a grand total of 9 plus TONS of recipes to make.

Thanks for the tip

On topic, this doesn't look to appealing, though I do love The Office.

Thanks for the tip! Love Wario type mini-games, but I'm going to take your advise and not pick this one up.
