The Moron Test
Finally an app that can prove what I’ve suspected all along… I am a genius, of course.
Even though it might be a large application, it took just a few seconds to download,
and i got straight into the game. The game is compiled of 5 sections, which are divided
by check points. The first check point lulling you into a false sense of confidence,
leaving space for the subsequent checkpoints to teach you new strategies and bring you back to reality,
bursting your hopes for a high IQ score.
A seemingly endless series of instructions/questions are posed. Questions like:
“Where are you right now?” – giving you the multiple choice options
between the planet Saturn, a duck, the earth, and the sun.
“Touch the night in order to continue” – posing a choice between
the night sky, and a knight in armour.
The Moron Test has been repeatedly classed as one of the top
sellers in the Android and Apple market, with a 4.5 star rating, and it is very easy to understand why.
It is addictive, in an exasperating sort of way. Most of the questions are
deliberately meant to trick the mind of the game player, and if not thought
through carefully, will result in the player having to repeatedly start over.
This is the frustrating part, but it is fun once you have mastered the sections
and have figured out the reasons for your ‘moronic’ failure.
DistinctiveDev, the developer, must have a very interesting wit about him,
which you will notice as you proceed to answer all his silly, tricky questions.
His graphics are cute – animals, planets, eggs, shapes and buttons are amongst
his random ideas of events. Once you have completed a level within a specific
section and reached a checkpoint, he ranks your brainpower accordingly, calling
you ‘somewhat intelligent’ or ‘slightly smart’, and even crowns you as an
I found the background music to be slightly annoying and unfortunately it is one of those tunes
that plays repeatedly in your head, even long after you have killed the actual application.
The game is suited to a mature crowd. Even though the appearance of the app seems
as though this would be great for kids, it’s actually a lot more challenging.
Kids may give it a try though. Cleverly fashioned and very entertaining, The Moron Test is
everything it’s promised to be – a fun and tricky brain-teaser.
