Awful TV Show; worse app
on 11 May 2014
The Chase is the app based on the TV show - the premise is that you stake an amount of money on the number of trivia questions you can answer correctly , a miss means you stand still, whilst the 'chaser' (one of the personalities from the show) answers questions and moves towards your rung on the ladder. A correct answer from you moves you back one rung. The higher the stake, the higher the amount of money you can win.
The trivia is great; challenging questions and interesting subjects. However the animation of this app is appalling. It's simply 4-frame-gifs taken from show footage of the 'chasers' feigning surprise or celebrating when they get the question right. They rarely make mistakes and given that you are not actually playing for money, it doesn't make it that rewarding to gamble on the highest stake. There are better trivia apps out there.
