Trivia Search is essentially a combination of a word search puzzle and a trivia game. It has a very simple concept, and it’s easy to lose track of time while playing.
The game gives you a question, which is usually a very simple one like “fluid for a car…” and presents you with a jumble of letters on a grid. It changes in size based on the difficulty, from a 3×3 grid to an 8×8 in the later levels. Your objective is to spell out the letters in the form of the correct answer.
The answers are usually pretty obvious, but a few are not quite as easy, or have deceptive answers hidden in the puzzle grid. Hints are available in case you get stuck, and provide one letter per use to help guide you to the correct answer. Most puzzles won’t require more than one hint to get right, and the game is generally forgiving with wrong answers. That’s all there really is to it.
Trivia Search isn’t a terribly complex or deep game, but what it lacks in variety it more than makes up for in content. The game comes with tons and tons of stages, so you won’t be finished with it in one go. That alone adds hours to the playtime and makes the game worth a look.
I would have liked to see some kind of a competitive or multiplayer aspect with perhaps a leaderboard or challenge a friend option. That would give this game that small push into a really good puzzle game. But as it is, Trivia Search is great fun and definitely worth a look. I’d recommend it to anyone who likes puzzles, or a trivia buff.
