So-So Not a bad implementation but let down badly by the numbers section. I find myself repeatedly getting the right answer but just not having enough time to enter it. Typing will always be slower than scribbling the answer down as per the original format. Why not simply have an option to make the numbers disappear after the timer runs down? You can then give a set time in which to enter the answer. If you delay more than 3 seconds you fail.
Love the TV show, love the game Wow!!! Brilliant game! I love the show (it's my favourite TV show ever!!) Sometimes there can be duplicate letters but, nevertheless, it is a splendid game! The conundrums are sometimes tricky which is good because it makes you think. To summarize, it is a superb game. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ☺
Countdown To Nothing When I first bought this app, I could not help but be impressed by its overall layout. It has been designed so perfectly with the Channel 4 quiz show format. However, there is one major drawback to what would otherwise be a five-star rating. The words game and the conundrums are of top quality, but what lets this game down so badly is that when it comes to the numbers, there is a major glitch! When you add, subtract, multiply or divide certain numbers at the start of the game to reach a certain amount, that is fine. But when you need to add that on to another separate sum total underneath, it just refuses to work, no matter what you try. Why oh why, could they not have included an equals sign and allowed you to bring the sum total from the top of the page down onto the next line!!! PLEASE SORT THIS NUMBERS GAME OIT AND THEN I WILL START PLAYING IT AGAIN!
I do love this app, it is great for passing the time with my wife or on my own if I am waiting around anywhere or have a quiet moment ... so why 4 stars? It is let down a little by the numbers round, there needs to be brackets so that you can more naturally perform calculations as you often know the answers (or at least could get close) but waste valuable seconds trying to work out the best way to perform the calculations without brackets. I do love the game however, and even if the developer does not feel capable of including the brackets I will still play it. It has a beautiful interface and is pretty true to the TV game in design. So well done, I am sure it helps my grey cells ... but please improve the numbers round to warrant a 5 star rating.
The game works fine and is very fun. However I would love it if there was a multiplayer option (via Google play) and if you could choose how long the time limit is on practice mode. You can do this on the DS version (which i have) and its a nice little addition. Otherwise its a great game and if you're a countdown fan then its well worth the money.
More enjoyable than i expected I don't like the tv show, it's too slow. But when you strip all the talking away you're left with a pretty fun game. I only ever get 4's and 5's but earlier on i got the conundrum and nearly shot out of my seat! (Capacitors) it's worth the money, it's well constructed but just resist the urge to do dirty words!!
