Trivia Millionaire

Editors' Review Staff Oct 15, 2009

Trivia Millionaire is a basic trivia game that's modeled after the popular television show, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Unfortunately, the things that made that show so entertaining--the timing and suspense--are wholly lacking from Trivia Millionaire.

The program's interface is basic and sleek; it's also fairly intuitive, which is good, given the program's lack of Help file. Users are asked a series of trivia questions and must select the correct answer from four choices. When users are stumped, they can have the program eliminate two wrong answers, select an answer for them, or spin a wheel to determine whether to continue. Everything works fine, and the questions start off quite easy and get appropriately more difficult as users progress through the game. We also liked that the game allows users to create new sets of questions on their own. Our main problem with the game was that, unfortunately, it's kind of boring. The TV show was suspenseful, with tense music and host Regis Philbin asking contestants, "Is that your final answer?" Trivia Millionaire creates suspense, but of an annoying kind; users have to wait 5 seconds after selecting an answer to find out whether it's correct. This makes gameplay drag; who wants to sit and wait for a computer game to respond? We love trivia, but the slow pace of this game made us lose interest quickly.

Trivia Millionaire has a one-day trial period. It installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users; we didn't find it that exciting, but it's not awful.
