iQuiz for iPod Reviewed
6:07 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks has posted a new review of iQuiz for iPod, one of Apple's game titles released for the portable multimedia device. The game offers a variety of trivia puzzles to test a player's knowledge and the ability to create and add new quizzes. Applelinks gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

This ability to customize the game isn't its greatest asset, however. That accolade goes to Music Quiz 2. More than just a predetermined list of questions to answer, Music Quiz 2 looks at the music on your 5G iPod and actively generates questions based on your collection. So, it's not a matter of what you know about music, it's what you know about your music, which makes things much more interesting.

The majority of the visual punch is packed into Music Quiz 2, which attempts to take on the sights and sounds of a modern prime time quiz show. Visually, this is mostly done with static renderings of a sound stage, although some animations are thrown in. There's also a creepy woman who smiles at you a lot and makes you thankful you don't have to go any long trips with her. The music contains that in your face bombast of most TV game show themes, but considering Music Quiz 2 is about your music, you don't have to listen to it for long.

New iPods Require Second Game Purchase For Some
6:07 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

iLounge is reporting that consumers who have upgraded to one of Apple's recently released iPod Nanos (with video) or Classic iPods will have to purchase new copies of the games for the new devices even if they already own versions compatible with older iPods.

iLounge has confirmed with Apple that past purchasers of iPod games will have to re-purchase the titles to play them on the recently-released iPod classic and iPod nano (with video). According to an Apple representative, the games will need to be repurchased because they were “reformatted” for the new iPods.

Reformatted iPod games currently include EA’s Tetris and Sudoku, as well as Namco Networks’ Ms. Pac-Man. An additional 15 titles are yet to be converted for play on the iPod classic and new nano. Each game sells for $4.99, and no further guarantees of compatibility with other devices, such as a computer, iPhone, or iPod touch, are made by Apple.
