The 80's Game with Martha Quinn Review
Review by Dylan
The 80's Game with Martha Quinn will bring out your inner 80's persona as you answer tough pop-culture questions vying for the top score. The game starts with a dialogue from former MTV video jockey Martha Quinn, in which she explains the game and asks you to pick a character from the 80s (John Mcenroe, Molly Ringwald, Run DMC, etc) that you identify with. Quinn explains the four different trivia modes and the game begins.
80s Music, Movies, TV and Other Pop Culture Trivia
The 80's Trivia game tests your knowledge of music, movies, and television shows among other things. There are four game modes in this game: Free-play, Challenges, Episodes, and Versus. In Free-play you will face a random sprinkling of 80s pop-culture questions. These questions may consist of answering questions from the show “Different Strokes” or song titles from Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. With each question you are presented with two options. You can select that you know the question right away or you can admit to guessing and guess at the answer. If you don't guess you are rewarded with bonus points, however, if you answer wrong you lose the point without a second guess. Admitting to guessing gives you unlimited chances at answering the tricky questions, however, you are subject to earning less points.
Guess the Answer and the Year
Challenge mode gives you a limited number of turns to earn a high score. You have the option of facing a hard, medium, and easy question each turn, which give you different points depending on the difficulty. After each question is answered successfully you are asked what year the answer you've given took place in. If you answer this right you are awarded bonus points, increasing your overall score.
Episodes is a category based mode. You answer 10 questions from varying categories like 80s Gals, Tom Cruise, 1 Hit Wonders, and Politics. The layout of the game is the similar to both Challenge and Free-play in that you are given the option to guess and if you get the question right you have to answer the year. Versus mode is the last option of play. In this mode you can challenge a friend to see who is the true 80s expert. There is no online option in the versus mode, which would strengthen the game immensely, but it is fun none-the-less to compete against your friends.
Obviously Limited to People Who Know the 1980s
The only real drawback of this game is how specific of an audience it addresses. If you weren't born in or before the 80s you'll have a really hard time with this game. You might even have to look up who Martha Quinn is because her significance, like the significance of most of the questions, is only relative to the 80s. If the easy questions were easier or were more significant throughout time, this game would be better for the masses and less niche specific.
Conclusion - A Nice Trip Down Memory Lane
Overall, The 80's Game is a well-done take on trivia. The questions are challenging, but the option to guess keeps the game exciting even if you don't know the answer. If you love trivia and lived through the 80s this game is perfect for you. Despite not having online capabilities this game is worth playing.
