Mobile Game of the Week #4- The Wiki Game

We didn’t do much in my senior physics class after the AP test, so my classmates and I had to find ways to entertain ourselves. One day we stumbled upon The Wiki Game, wherein you race against various other players to get from one wikipedia article to another through hyperlinks. The name “The Wiki Game” is permanently tied to the fond memory of three of us trying to play at once with one of us on the mouse, one of us on the keyboard, and one of us suggesting words to ctrl+f; so I was very glad to discover that The Wiki Game by Roey Vidan was on the play store.

The basic premise of the app is the same as the browser game: your start and end pages are randomly generated, and you have to get from one page to the other as fast as you can. Both your time and the number of pages visited factor into your score. Unfortunately, the app has no online capability (as of this writing), so you’re only competing with yourself. Combined with the fact that there’s no ctrl+f function (call me a cheater but if it’s in the game I’m using it), I would actually recommend the browser game over the mobile app. However, if you can’t get to your computer or just want to practice on your phone, then definitely check out The Wiki Game, for free on the play store and $.99 on the app store.

Not for you? Check back next week for another recommendation, or check out the previous games:
