Description

How well do you know the who, where, what, when and how of military history?

Pit your puny knowledge against the mysterious Osprey Publishing Quizmaster, who has been mesmerizing and mystifying military history enthusiasts with his immense knowledge of history, whilst challenging them to some of the hardest quizzes ever devised.

Not content with simply challenging the visitors to the Osprey Publishing website with his fabulously tough quizzes the Quizmaster decided to compile a book containing some of his favourite quiz questions.

Get your thinking caps on and see if you can defeat the Quizmaster and claim your place as Military History Quiz General.

The Military History Quiz app allows you to progress through a series of questions arranged into difficulty levels. To complete the quiz you need to unlock the levels by completing the previous level. When unlocked each level contains one free quiz, the remaining quizzes need to be purchased within the app, they will then be available to play.

Each of four main difficulty levels has up to 25 quizzes to complete.

On initial launch you need to take the 'Officer Training' quiz. On completion, this quiz will unlock the first 'One Star General' level. To take the second level and complete all the levels to become a One Star General you will need to purchase the rest of the levels in 'One Star General'.

To complete any quiz and unlock the next quiz or level of quizes you need to answer 7 out of 10 questions correctly, otherwise you'll need to re-take the quiz.

- Sharing your score

When you've finished a quiz you can share the score with your friends by tapping the 'Share' Button. This will allow you to send your score for that quiz by email, or to your Twitter and Facebook accounts.

- Profiles

The profiles area allows you to create a new profile, this means that multiple people can use the quiz app and their progress will be saved separately.

- View Scores

You can track your progress through the quiz in the View Scores area. All results wil be displayed here, and you can share any of these results at anytime.

- Purchase quiz levels

To take every quiz you'll need to purchase the levels from within the app. This allows you to only buy the levels that suit your knowledge.

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)...

4/5 stars

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.

5/5 stars
