It is hard ....
The level thing is quite tricky but in the end I like the fact you have to pass each quiz before you can move on. Definitely one for military history fans (or you will spend a lot of time learning about it to move on)...
Good app for history buffs
The free version is only 2 quizzes of 10 questions, but if you are a real history buff you won't mind paying the money for all the quizzes. At the end of each quiz, your correct and incorrect answers are displayed allowing you to learn. The game makes you pass each quiz before you can move on to next, which does correspond nicely to the theme of the game of "becoming a 4 star general". In general, no pun intended, I like the idea of the game being challenging forcing you to earn your way to the next quiz and next level. However, if you fail a quiz (answering less than 7 out of 10 questions correctly), you are allowed to immediately retake the quiz. So, if you have the short term memory skills of a 4th grader, you will pass the quiz upon retake and be able to move on. Consequently, it really isn't that difficult to advance from quiz to quiz. A solution would be if the game aggregated all incorrect questions and then made you answer a certain percentage of them correctly at the very end of a level as opposed to taking the exact same quiz again right after failing it. The difference may sound subtle, but it would go a long way in making the game more challenging.
Also, don't trust the answers on every single quiz. I'm sure the quiz answers are overall 99% correct. However, I have found errors. For example, question 5 on quiz 5 on the one star level asks you which barbarians wiped out 3 Roman legions in the Battle of Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD. The game indicates that the correct answer is "The Goths". However, Edward Gibbon in his famous book "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" notes that the Gothic people were located, in time of Caesar Augustus, in what today are called the Baltic states, which was hundreds of miles away from the farthest extent of the Roman Empire in 9 AD. Furthermore, it is a well known fact that the great Gothic-Roman wars didn't begin until the mid 3rd century AD after the Goths had migrated south and west having come in contact with the Roman Empire. It is also equally well known that it was the Germanic tribes that defeated the Romans at the Battle of Teutoburg Forest. Consult any history book if you don't believe me. Anyway, the point is that you might find errors from time to time.
Overall, the questions themselves are quite challenging while not being overly obscure, at least in what I've encountered so far. This game is really only meant for military history buffs; if you have only a casual interest in history, you will find the questions too difficult which will lead to frustration and then disinterest in the game. Given the volume, or relative lack thereof to be more precise, of games for military history buffs, this game is a welcomed addition.
Very good app. It is hard but military history buffs like myself won't mind
