Klemens's comments:
Hey guys,

my name is Klemens Strasser and I'm the developer of a little game called Elementary Minute.

Elementary Minute is a fast paced trivia game for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, which won the Student Apple Design Award at the WWDC 2015. You will be confronted with statements regarding different topics. It is up to you to distinguish whether these statements are correct or incorrect by swiping up or down. Here are some example statements:
  • Graz is the capital of Austria
  • George R. R. Martin is the author of A Game of Thrones
  • 4 * 8 = 34

Currently, there are three topics available in the game: First up is Math, which is all about elementary math (+,-, *, /). Geography asks you about Countries, Flags, Rivers, Mountains, Cities and Sights. The newest topic, Famous People, is about the most influential people of the human history. You will get statements about Actors, Sportsman, Musicians, Directors, Politicians and Authors, Scientists and more will be added soon.

The game has to modes: Classic and Rush. The first one gives you one minute to get as many answers correct as possible. If you get one wrong, you loose a live. Rush puts you to a stress test. Here, you get only 5 seconds per question and four lives. While a correct answer gives you a point, a wrong one takes away one live.

I hope you like it and would love to here feedback from you, to make the game even better! (:




Also, here is a Trailer for the game:

Hey!

In the last few days, three updates where released! They brought an easier geography mode, a new icon, a German localization and a few bug fixes.

Also, it seems like nobody took the code. Sooo you could be the lucky one! Why wait, it's a free game (:

Can't believe I just saw this post only now. From the trailer, I like the variety of questions for math and geography categories. Also, like the swipe up and down mechanic and the data to see how we did. I subscribe to the PEAK brain training app, so this appears to be up my alley.

Questions:
1. How many questions are there and will new content be added free of charge? My guess is that given the timed nature of the game, players can get through the questions fairly quickly and will need more content added on a regular basis


2. Is there a way to review the questions and answers? I'd like to know the correct answers for questions I got wrong. It's good to keep learning...


3. Do questions adjust by getting easier or harder based on how we answered previous rounds?

So, that's a hard one. I have certain rules to create all questions Randomly. For example, in Math classic easy there are two numbers from 0-9, which are randomly chosen. Than the game choses an elementary sign randomly, calculates the result and randomly choses if the result should be modified (to be incorrect) or not. In harder modes, the range of numbers is bigger.

In the other topics (Geographie and Famous People), I have Databases, choose randomly a question, a country or a person, an fact about it and sometimes modify one of the three things to make the statement wrong. The size of the geography databases is limited to the number of countries. Depending on the mode the three biggest cities + capital of each country, the flag and country code of each country, about 60 of the world largest rivers, about 70 mountains, over 100 sights and more to come.

For the topic about famous people, I think there are about 400 actors, 200 Directors, 150 world leaders, 70 Authors, 150 Sportsman, 150 musicians...

But, the databases are expanded frequently, in the version 1.1 I've added a whole new topic and two new questions for geography mode. the next update will feature more than 80 new musicians, 50 new movies, outlines of countries and more. And a new topic is in planning.

Oh and since the game costs money, the updates are free of charge (:

Currently, no. But I'm working on this feature, because it is really important for the next new topic, which will arrive later this year.

No, not directly, because like I said earlier, all questions are chosen randomly. But in rush mode, things are getting harder if you survive a certain amount of questions.


Thank you for the questions, they where all really good (:
