From Alexander the Great to Benjamin Franklin; from Joan of Arc to Fred Astaire; from Louis Armstrong to Winston Churchill.
This is both a History and Art quiz. The game is divided into two Levels based on the difficulty of questions.
Level 1 – 123 well-known persons (Julius Caesar, Alfred Hitchcock, etc.)
Level 2 – 122 heroes that are harder to identify: Blaise Pascal, Igor Sikorsky and many other important philosophers, inventors, and rulers.
And four ‘professional’ levels:
1) Writers (William Shakespeare and Leo Tolstoy);
2) Composers (Johann Sebastian Bach and Leonard Bernstein);
3) Painters (Michelangelo and Georgia O’Keeffe) and Paintings: Guess who the artist is (if you see “Mona Lisa”, answer “Leonardo da Vinci”).
4) Scientists (Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin).
In each level, you can choose several game modes:
* Spelling quizzes (easy and hard).
* Multiple-choice questions (with 4 or 6 answer options). It’s important to remember that you have only 3 lives.
* Time game (give as many answers as you can in 1 minute) – you should give more than 25 correct answers to get a star.
Two learning tools where you can browse all celebrities in the application without guessing:
* Flashcards: here you can find brief biographical info about each person and a link to the full biography in the encyclopedia.
* Tables for each level.
The app is translated into 24 languages, including English, French, Spanish, German, and many others.
