Guess the Year (available in both a free and paid version) is an interesting new game by Joe Banks Apps. The concept behind the game couldn't be simpler - you simply get given a historical event, with your challenge being to choose the year the event occurred from four possible options.
Although the concept is simple, the execution is great, providing a unique gaming experience that will test your intellect. To mix things up, a general category of events can be chosen, or it can be specified down to categories such as "movie", "music" or "sport". I particularly liked seeing a "Video games" category!
In addition to categories of game play, there are also a variety of modes, which best of all, include from 2 to 4 person multi-player. It is good to see a developer providing competitive multi-player expediences on devices for more than two players. There is also a survival mode, which involves attempting to answer as many questions as possible in a limited period of time, with a limited amount of lives.
All in all, Guess the Year is a great app that should keep not only you entertained, but will also give you something to entertaining to do on bus trips with mates! Check it out.
In the words of the developer:
Test you knowledge on events that changed the world.
With 3 game modes, 6 categories and 100's of questions!
