Opposite Test review (iPod/iPhone)

August 6, 2011

“I take-2 steps forward
I take-2 steps back”

Of course, it's a fail from the start because the "BEGIN" button should say "QUIT". Come on, you're either all the way with this or you're not.

10 word description: Visual quiz where the wrong answer is the right answer.

It starts off very easy. After you have restarted several times you will begin to really dislike seeing this question pop up.

10 word review: Fixed sequence of questions adds an unwanted element of repetition.

You will like this if you enjoy: Cryptic quizzes. Games like Idiot Test.

The good news: The concept of giving the wrong answer may not be particularly original but it does tend to make your brain work slightly differently and can catch you out as soon as you become complacent.

The bad news: The fixed sequence of puzzles detracts from the potentially enjoyable concept. Often, you will fail a puzzle because your finger was in the wrong place when the puzzle appeared because that’s where you touched the screen on the previous puzzle. That tends to be annoying. A tiny delay between puzzles appearing could probably fix this.

I know what you're thinking. I'm thinking it too. This should say "CORRECT!!!"

Arcadelife verdict: It’s a very simple game and it could be quite entertaining but the questions need to be randomised in order to avoid the rather tedious repetition of playing through the same puzzles over and over.
