Unfortunately this game has some bugs. For example, if the goal word is “Tango” and I click on just that word in the Wikipedia article, it has been since been renamed to Tango (Argentina) so it doesn’t work. So I click another “Tango” in the article and it redirects me to Tango (dance)...still not the correct Tango apparently. So I click another Tango and finally it recognized it. By then I am getting the lowest score because of all the extra clicks. This game needs to updated with Wikipedia semi regularly. Also could you let us know how many clicks are in the perfect path while we’re trying to figure it out! Fingers crossed that there will be some support for this game and it won’t just die off.
It’s seems fun, but since it’s a paid app, it would be nice to have some app updates. It looks like the last update was at least two years ago, which leads to some problems. For example, it isn’t sized properly for an iPhone 12. And security details are no longer available. With in-app purchases, it makes me wonder about the value behind the price (since Wikipedia is ostensibly supposed to be free).
The charts on the pages do not scroll. This is a huge problem because it cuts off content that can be used to solve the level. In addition, the skip to next area button doesn’t work. It would be wonderful to have multiplayer in this game. It would also be really nice to have a table of contents LIKE YOU HAVE IN NORMAL WIKIPEDIA ARTICLES. I shouldn’t have to scroll through the whole thing to get to one part.
I haven’t written a review in years but this was so infuriating that I just have to. There’s no multiplayer function, therefore it’s SO much less fun than the original but they have the gall to still charge $2 for it? Do not buy this under any circumstances. If I save even one person from forking over $2 they could have spent on a snickers bar, I’ll be happy. Just play on a desktop
This game gives you the Wiki Game, as promised. It's polished, it works great. Plenty of single-player fun. That's just it though, I know there's a multiplayer variant online. I think if multiplayer features were available this would get my five stars.
I have been looking for a Wiki game for so long and this app just takes the cake! The graphics and interface are gorgeous and it already has 100 levels just to start off with! I'm totally addicted and have a hard time putting it down, they are challenging enough to really make you think outside the box, but not too hard that you can't get through it. Love it can't wait for more updates to feed my addiction!
I love this concept. This is one of the most challenging games I've ever gotten. It forces you to think outside the box and to really use your problem-solving skills. Anyone who has given up on this game because of one level is missing out on the endless possibilities still left. Don't let one level discourage you from exercising your mind through this extraordinarily thought-provoking game.
I love the concept of this game. It has great potential for educational purposes. Teaching students how to skim and scan articles. However, I hesitate to install this on our school purchased laptops. I work for a public school and I would hesitate because of the "Five Clicks to Jesus" game mode. I have nothing against Jesus, but I because we are a public school I'm not sure this would be appropriate for public school students to have access to. Some parents may see a problem with their child having access to this game mode.
I love this game because I feel like I'm learning when I play it! However, one suggestion for improvement would be to find a way to store how far down a given page you were when the back button is clicked. It would make checking out different articles that you knew were dead ends just to learn so much easier.
Never heard of this game til I downloaded the app - I can't put it down! If you like Wikipedia you'll love it! Regarding the Jesus game, it doesn't say Jesus Saves, it just has you look for the connection. I don't like or condone sport rowing but that doesn't mean the concept doesn't exist and the term should be anathema. Wish people would get some common sense & lighten up on the persecution.
I've always enjoyed leaping from article to article on Wikipedia, and this game totally feeds that! I have really enjoyed the challenge of using a limited amount of clicks or racing against the clock to get from point A to point B. I totally recommend this game if you are a habitual wiki-walker!
I was skeptical about buying this app but I absolutely love it! A few things are on my mind about it though... Like what are the coins used for? Could they possibly be used to get hints in future updates? Please???? Because sometimes i get stuck on a puzzle. BUT I REALLY DO LOVE THIS!
This game is intuitive, original and fun. It's amazing how many facts I've absorbed just from playing this a couple of weeks. It's probably worth 99$, not .99$ it is truly great. The wiki game will is one of those games that you will always remember, like Mario Bros, minecraft or Call Of Duty.
The wiki articles in the game are formatted differently and in some cases have different content than the ones on the mobile site. For example, the article entitled "list of u.s. cities by population" is in fact not a list at all. It's an article about the list itself. On the normal mobile site there's a list.
...it desperately needs more levels. I finished the whole game within less than a week (granted, work's been pretty slow these days..). But seriously. I'm being very very patient, hoping there will soon be an update adding more.
