Trivia Crack claims to be the most downloaded gaming app in the world

number one app

Amidst an allegation by a player surfacing over the past days that the gaming app was probably rigged now comes the news that Trivia Crack, the smartphone game that allows you to pit your wits against anyone from around the world, was the most downloaded gaming app in the world. (And if you are in the minority who’s still not heard of it, stop reading any further.)

Here’s what a report today in VentureBeat had to say: Trivia Crack is the top downloaded game on mobile in the world, according to developer Etermax and industry-tracking firm App Annie. Since its debut, this app has racked up more than 125 million downloads worldwide. It has also managed to reach the No. 1 spot on the overall app download chart in important countries like the United States and Canada.

UK’s The Guardian has just reported that over 500,000 Brits had already downloaded the popular mobile game in the 1st 2 weeks since its release in the UK.

The social trivia quiz had already picked up 100 million players in the US & Latin America, where it launched in late 2013.

Released for iOS, Android & Windows Phone devices, Trivia Crack is all about, well, trivia – its vast database of GK questions split between history, geography, science, sports, entertainment & arts. At the basic level, there’s a spinning wheel that players need to spin to select 7 of the categories named above including one called “Special”.

The game’s objective is to 1st obtain all 6 characters on the wheel. The 1st player to obtain all 6 is the winner of the match. Each match will have a maximum of 25 rounds. To obtain a character a player must correctly answer 3 questions in a row, or land on the special section on the wheel. In this case, the player will choose between challenging the opponent for 1 of their characters, or simply answer a new question for a character of choice.

The high numbers, & we mean the number of downloads, has some crying foul. A few reports are surfacing on the Net alleging that the game is rigged, though we have no independent methods of verifying these charges, and no rejoinder to these charges was yet forthcoming from the Argentinian developer, etermax.

A report in the Latin Post, for example, quotes a player alleging so.
