Ahh… the lovely world of Flash games. There are thousands and thousands of those out there – most of which look like they’re made by a bored ten-year-old. Well, The Impossible Quiz is no exception, yet it has somehow managed to gain quite some popularity over the years. This article will serve you as a beginner’s guide to what might turn out to be a very addictive, fun game to play when you find yourself having nothing to do on a rainy day.
INSTRUCTIONS AND CONTROLS
This is a Flash game, which means that the controls are very easy. You’ll do fine even without a keyboard — all you need is a mouse and you’re good to go. Don’t get spooked off by the main menu which looks like it’s been designed on MS Paint. Once you press play, you’ll dive into a world full of absurd, yet funny questions. In Pacman everything is even more simple you just use arrow keys, pretty easy right? By the way this legendary game is now available on flash platform as well, interested?
The idea of the game is simple. You have three lives, and all you have to do is answer a number of questions correctly. If you do that, you’ll win the game! Don’t give up just yet, though, this is anything but your average, boring trivia game. Most of the questions don’t necessarily make much sense. It’s the absurdity of the questions that makes this game so funny and addictive. You most likely won’t pass the game on your first try, and of course you aren’t one to give up so easily! Before you notice it, you’ve spent hours trying to figure out if a match can box, or calculating the square root of onion.
For most questions, you’re given four alternatives. Click on the one you believe is correct, and ta da! You’re through to the next question. If your answer is wrong, you’ll lose a life. In some cases you might notice that the correct answer might not even be any of the four alternatives! The game requires you to do some out-of-the-box thinking (if you like simple sport games take a look at http://linebacker2.us/) — after a few terrifying (or not) “game over” screens, you will no longer wonder why the quiz is so impossible.
All in all, if you’re looking for a game to rescue you from having to study for that math test, or if you’re simply looking for cheap entertainment, this might be the game for you. Don’t get too frustrated, though — you WILL find yourself in a situation where you’ll have to guess whether or not an eyeball is food. (Hint: it’s not.)
Good luck, and more importantly, have fun!
