You Don’t Know Jack first appeared as a TV show and its popularity had it spread to PC, Mac and other gaming consoles. Now it’s 2012, where nothing works without an iOS app and so here they are, with the ‘i’ version.
This game packs all the exciting goodies you would expect from the reputed crew. Each game has six segments, with unique funny themes and 5 opponents on the other end. Get through all of’em with the highest score and be crowned.
The levels include DisorDat, Giberish, Jack Attack, Funky Trash, Fortune Cookie and much much more. Each is filled with unlimited fun & comedy, but needs your general knowledge to be sharp. With new episodes added every week, I wonder how they manage to come up with those rocking conversations and unheard facts.
After scoring close to 10 on their gameplay, I pity how YDKJ fails miserably on the execution part. The need to add a Facebook account for ‘better play’ is the first wrong step. And what would you say about only one free game per day? After all this humiliation, when we get into a game, what do we see here? Artificial enhancement of scores. Comm’on people, seriously? How will the final scores (it’s a 6 man competition) be valid, if someone can use steroids on their’s?
So, I guess, thinks are clear to you. The gameplay is one of the best and unique out there. The intermittend fake commercials and sponsors are hilarious and so are the final comments after each question. But, the app is too greedy for a fair play and the motto is ‘pay more to score more‘. So, don’t even think of being an addict, unless you are fond of the term bankruptcy.
Would I Buy Again:Not until they make changes in the in-app store
Learning Curve:Low - if you know the levels, else - Medium
Who Is It For:Those with some common sense and high general knowledge
What I Like:The levels and presentation are jaw-dropping
What I Don't Like:They want my money for almost everything
Final Statement:Get this, play free, delete!
