QuizUp, an extremely popular quiz game on iOS, is finally, almost ready to make its Android debut. The game is fairly simple; you select a topic from over 300 choices, and QuizUp matches you with someone that’s judged to be about as smart as you are about that topic. It then quizzes both players with multiple choice questions, and the faster you select the correct answer, the more points you win. It’s a game of balancing intelligence, speed, and good guesswork, and it’s a ton of fun.
You can also challenge specific friends to quizzes, and even if they aren’t available to play immediately, QuizUp will record your answers and timing and your friend can catch up later. It’s a fantastic example of asynchronous multiplayer done right. » Read the rest
The folks over at Fireproof Games are back with another edition of the “The Room” game.
Like it’s prequel, The Room 2 is a “physical puzzler, wrapped in a mystery game, inside a beautifully tactile 3D world.”
I’ve never played the prequel, but I have definitely thought about buying it before, especially because it has great reviews. The new game shouldn’t fall short of expectations either.
Hit the break for a series of screenshots and the link to the game in the Play Store.

Initially four battles are included, although all but the first are locked. If you want to check out 300: Seize Your Glory, you can grab it from the Google Play store using one of the download links below the screenshot gallery after the break.
