A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

This game is simple to play, especially if you're familiar with the TV show by the same name. If not, there are written directions to help you along. From there, the game relies on simple taps to navigate. This game requires the ability to read since questions are not read aloud.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

There are no ads during the game itself, but there are links in the main menu to buy other games from the publisher and to buy additional "question packs" to extend game play.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is a trivia game that behaves just like the television show on which it is based. Players answer questions that increase in difficulty and dollar value until they cash out, choose a wrong answer, or win the million (virtual) dollars. Along the way, players can use lifelines just like on the show. Although this is a one-player game, families might enjoy coming up with answers together.

Great game offers kids a chance to test their knowledge

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is an age appropriate game and the only thing kids will need to have to play this is the ability to read.

Is it any good?

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is a fun and challenging game show app that will be especially popular among fans of the show. The game includes 75 to 115 questions in each of the different subject categories, with additional question packs available for purchase for $.99 each. Questions pull from topics that will be familiar to kids -- like cartoons -- to those that will probably require someone with a few more years under their belt -- like "Great Thinkers." On average, the questions seemed slightly easier than what you'd find on the TV show, so you may have a shot at nabbing the elusive million dollar prize.
