Too glitchy

There are some good trivia topics but it’s very difficult to win in Royale since the update. It’s better to have random opponents than opponents who are at the same level but mostly at higher levels. Many adults and kids need to see some success or it won’t be fun. There is some danger if kids engage in the social features so it’s too bad that can’t be blocked. There is a devil component for those who want their kids to avoid. If you have a good game, the devil hand sign is generated. Some of the add ons for avatars can be grotesque and many can create evil appearances. There are glitches and strange and creepy spam can disrupt play. Those who pay for boosters and endless tickets have a clear advantage. Those with thousands of Royale wins are suspect. There are some who cheat and disconnect/reconnect to throw off opponent.

Is It Any Good?

Unlike many online trivia contests, this one isn't limited to set times or topics, and is all the better for it. In Trivia Royale, you go head-to-head against another online player in a battle of wits. If you get the most answers correct, and are quick about it, you progress to the next round, and your competition is eliminated. Do well, and you'll be the last person standing, with all the rewards and accolades that comes with it. In other words, it's kind of like Fortnite for your brain. Well, that is if Fortnite asked how old you are and then only let you play with other people your age. That's why adults get asked questions like "What's in a Moscow Mule," which is something they don't ask younger players.

But setting this up as a battle royale isn't the only thing that makes this better than most trivia contests we've played on our phones and tablets. For starters, you can play whenever you like, not just at scheduled times. It also has a wide variety of topics, but allows you to pick specific ones if you prefer, while the questions are often asked in clever ways (but always in a multiple-choice format). And while you can't win money playing like you can with other online trivia contests, if you wanted to earn money playing games, you'd turn pro playing, well, Fortnite. Instead, when you want to sit back and test your brains instead of thumbs, sit down and play some Trivia Royale.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
