Available for Android and iOS, Quiz Run is a fast paced race against the clock to reach the finish line by correctly answering as many general knowledge questions as you can in one minute. Not only are your competing against time, but you are also competing against other trivia know-it-alls to be the first one to the finish. Whether they are your friends or a random opponent from somewhere on the other side of the globe, you can see how far ahead (or behind) you are. You get to take it in turns to choose which theme to be quizzed on. These include topics such as Health & Well Being, Football, TV Show, and many more.
There are three modes of play. First is a one-on-one battle in real time; second is Challenge Mode, where you bet a certain amount of coins that you can beat your competitor. Third is Tournament Mode, where you are up against three players at once, and you have to come third or higher to reach the next round. There are three levels to this: bronze, silver, and gold.
When you first start, you only have a faceless avatar to represent you, but once you've played several rounds, you can then customise your character in lots of different styles.
There is a good balance of questions, ranging from the really easy to the very hard. Sometimes there are questions that appear obvious if given time to think about it, but the fact that you are on a timer means that you often don't have time to read the question or answers fully/properly, and can lead to rushing into answering and getting it wrong. This can be frustrating if you are a slow reader, but it is all part of the challenge.
As well as being fun, Quiz Run is also educational as you can learn a lot of facts you didn't know.
