Players of the app will learn about people like Harriet Tubman, Daniel Boone, Pablo Picaso, and many others as they answer questions and test their knowledge. Players accumulate points, and advance through the levels earning achievements along the way. The app also has a timeline of facts enabling players to learn key facts before challenging themselves with game play.
I really enjoyed the Who Was? Adventure App and have had an exceptional time refreshing my knowledge of historical facts and figures. I liked trying to beat the clock and have replayed levels in an attempt to improve my score. There's also an arcade that's a fast paced race against the clock and puts your knowledge and skills to the test. The awards for accomplishing certain feats will keep players coming back for more.
An all around great brain game that children, parents, and teachers alike will enjoy. I highly recommend picking up a copy.
