QuizUp is a mobile application developed by Plain Vanilla Games.[1]

Overview[edit]

QuizUp is an app that allows players to test their knowledge against other players from around the world in more than 290 categories, ranging from Cats to Countries and from Batman to the Bible. Each individual game focuses on one specific topic and consists of only two players and 7 rounds: 6 normal and 1 bonus. Each round consists of one multiple choice question with four answers, one of which is the correct answer. QuizUp is a points- and speed-based game; faster answers receive more points. Regular rounds last 10 seconds, and a maximum of 20 points can be scored - 10 points for getting it correct plus the time shown on the clock after the player answers. The bonus round doubles the amount of points scored, so a perfect round would result in a score of 40. The maximum points possible to be scored in a single game is 160 [(6 rounds x 20 points)+(1 bonus round x 40 points)]. Winning a game solely depends on a player's score being higher than their opponent's.

Each completed game will earn you experience points within the category you played. The points one earns depends on how well they performed during the game. Experience points earned is the sum of:

This gives a maximum of 300 experience points per game (without any power-up bonuses).

After a certain amount of experience points is earned, a player will level up in the category. For example, level 2 requires 200 experience points, so it is very likely for a player to hit Level 2 if you win your first game.

The experience points required to increase a level are the previous level's points plus 70. i.e. °Level 2 200 Points °Level 3 270 Points °Level 4 340 Points °Level 5 410 Points and so on.

Once a player reaches the tenth level within a category, and then every tenth level after that, they will earn a title which will be displayed under their screen name/user name. The default title when one starts is "Beginner."
