AppToyz and I have been collaborating for a while now. Fish It! features some of my favorite tranquil Beatscribe tunes. Their awesome peripherals give their games a unique appeal and are a lot of fun. I recently got a mysterious package from the UK that turned out to be the connectable for their latest game, AppToyz App Quiz. An excellent quiz game that uses this cool octopus-like buzzer connection with your iPad, iPhone or Android phone.

 

Cool Buzzers!

 

I expected a bunch of bluetooth headaches or special configurations to get the device working. I was also wondering why I didn’t seem to see a battery cover or charging socket. Then I realized the ingeniousness of their design! This thing just mechanically taps your screen when you hit the buzzer. No drives, no connections, no batteries, just slip the iPad in and it hits the onscreen buttons appropriately. You can get App Quiz and enjoy it without the peripheral device as well but I recommend the satisfaction of slamming on those buzzers.

And The Category Is…

There’s a good level of variety to the different categories and subject matter covered by App Quiz. I played with a group of varying ages and everyone had a fighting chance. I also like that you can take a picture of yourself and load it into the game. It adds to the personal feel of the game.

The cool attachment makes it easy for 4 players to enjoy this awesome trivia game.

Even if you can’t get AppToyz’ awesome toys where you live, I suggest you check out some of their cool apps, most of which are playable with or without the attachments. We’ve already got some other exciting AppToyz projects coming down the pipeline soon!
