To begin playing Sparker, first you need to sign-up through Facebook. Once logged in you will see various games you can play if there are ones available. If not, you can create your own. One distinctive thing about the Sparker app is there are a variety of games to choose from. Anything from word games to trivia, puzzles to match or name that tune or image. To create your own query just tap the plus sign and then the pencil icon to edit the category of game you would like. One I really enjoyed was called Way No Way where you are given a crazy fact about a category and then you must decide if it is true or false, or Way or No Way in this case. The facts are really interesting and not as simple as you would think to answer. After you pick the game question you would like to ask you can choose the type of bomb your friend will get if they answer the question incorrectly. These are fun customized consequences with different images like food bombs which explode with tomato or popcorn on the screen. Hit next after setting your bomb and then pick the friends you would like to send it to. You can even choose yourself to challenge if you’d like.
Wins earn you points which will level you up and unlock new things like bonuses and bombs. Leveling up also earns you coins which are used to pay for the homemade quiz questions. Coins can be gained through in-app purchase as well. I really like the variety Sparker brings to the social game app. All of the different types of questions keep it fresh so it doesn’t get old too fast. The personalization of the challenges is something I’ve never seen in any other game app and marks Sparker a stand out from the rest. Some issues I did experience was some slow loading times and even a few crashes, though both happened when I started the game and not during game play. It was very seldom and didn’t affect my use of the app.
Sparker – The Game of Games is a one-of-a-kind app that is surely to challenge nearly everyone on your friend list. Sparker is available in the App Store for free and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
