'Smarty Pants' (Wii) - 7 Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 5, 2007 @ 2:50 p.m. PST

Electronic Arts' first Wii trivia game Smarty Pants will combine age-targeted trivia with action-based gestures, making it a truly trans-generational game for the Wii.

How smart are you? Do you know more than your Grandma about world history? Does your little sister know more than your Dad about sports?

Exciting Wii gestures make everything a game, from spinning the category wheel and tug-of-wars over correct answers, to "dance-offs" for additional points. The game also features a family mode, where everyone tries to beat the clock and a rapid-fire competitive mode for groups of friends. With both competitive and collaborative game modes and 20,000 questions in multiple categories, the replay-ability and fun will be virtually endless.

Tailoring questions to the contestant's age, gamers from eight to eighty can join in on the fun all at the same time. Every player's answer is tracked, and the game automatically adjusts the difficulty level to provide continous stimultion and interactive challenges that are age appropriate.
