    Overview:

    The moron test, is a port of the popular online game, "The Idiot Test". It's been sitting at or near the top of the paid app list on the App Store for quite some time now. The game is essentially just a series of intelligence questions.



    UI:
    The moron test has very basic user interface it consists of a series of tapable images, that's about it. The UI neither adds nor takes away from the gameplay, however it is the least of our worries, read on.

    Here are some scrnshts for a visual reference:

    Gameplay:
    To even define the moron test as a game is a long shot. The app is simply a couple questions and some images and makes no use of any of the iPod/iPhone's features etc. As you start to play you'll notice that the moron test is probably one of the most boring, repetitive things you've ever done in your life and after completing it, which takes about five minutes, it will leave you wondering why you just spent a dollar on it. All-in-all the moron test have an extremely weak and lame gameplay.

    Graphics and Audio:
    The moron test's audio is an annoying soundtrack along with a couple of tacky sounds. For example when you tap a duck it makes a quaking sound, very original. As for the graphics, absolutely nothing ties together, you got a plain background that never changes, a 3D button in a bunch of different colors and some 2D ducks. However even considering, the graphics are probably the most bearable part of this game.



    Frequently Asked Questions:
    Is it worth the price?

    Even at a whole $0.99, there is not a chance the moron test is worth paying any money for whatsoever.

    Does it have strong re-play value?

    Well, you can try to beat your time, but really who would want to beat their time answering a bunch of questions they already answered? To say the least, this game has no re-play value whatsoever.



    Ratings: (out of five)
    UI: - buttons, wow
    Gameplay: ½ - to look on the bright side, it never crashes
    Graphics and Audio: ★½ - annoying
    Overall: - I guess there are worse things you can spend five minutes of your life doing, like chewing on tin foil​

    Nice review. I heard that this app was a waste a time too.

    I'd rather not waste my buck on that.

    You have no idea how bad you should feel for the thousands that have. Honestly, this is a straight up garbage port of a flash game, save yourself a buck and google search the idiot test.

    I'd suggest not reading my review if this is how you feel.
