Wonderful trivia game!

But I'm not going to post my pity score :v2_dizzy_frown:
Most of the questions I lost before getting the chance to pick something.
Maybe a slow thinker option would be nice to give you more time to think.

[EDIT] The dizzy walking timer is cool too!

Anyway, the idea is great.
I hope you plan a next version.
Until then I'll give another try to this one... or maybe a few more tries.

Oh, and some suggestions:
It would be cool to make it more interactive, like on questions of what was used to solve something, to show the items, too (or only the items and not their names). And after the question, if the answer was correct, to show a small animated scene. Like a few frames from the game with what was said when solved, etc. Or in the case of image bits, to show the entire image.

Again congratulations for the game!

Thanks for the suggestions, I might do that for next Dizzy Trivia game :) I'll see what sort of stuff appears throughout 2008.

I'll think hard on what questions to type up which may involve me travelling through all the Dizzy games :laugh:

I reakon a revision mode (without the timer) and an original mode (with the timer) would be a good idea.

The timer is a good thing, but you can provide easy medium and hard options that have the timer (dizzy walking) moving slower or faster. Take care to allow plenty of time to read the text, even on the hard option, that probably will be at the current speed. Also you can variate the questions on these difficulty levels. Easy ones on easy, hard ones on hard, etc.

Another thing would be to change the order of the questions and the answers in a random way, to make it more anti-cheat. I'm saying that, now that I beat it using an unorthodox method (if you keep selecting the first answer for all questions, you get a score of 6; variate the selection for questions you're not sure of and if you get 7, you got it right, if you still have 6 you are still wrong and if you get 5, you were right with the first answer).

Another idea is to have more questions and ask only a random set of them.
Variate the number depending on the difficulty level. Maybe some other members of the forum can come up with new ideas. Not to mention an interactive online trivia...

15/20, my knowledge on the fan games is lacking, so I had to wing it on those questions.

v1.1 is now online :)

There's a werid bug when you score 20 and the game just closes stright away, that is now fixed, and I've slightly altered a few things.

If you're still having trouble getting to 20, then let me know your score here :)
