Android Trivia Games


I decided to make some trivia games for fun.
I finished the first one named Who Am I History.
I got the idea for these from going to the movies, they used to show a trivia game before the movie would start, where the celebrity image was covered with blocks that would disappear as time goes by, revealing the celebrity image below them. They also gave clues while this was happening to help you guess who it was. I always found this a great time waster while waiting for the movie to start.
So I decided to make my own version for android.
I plan on making a few of these as time goes by with different topics.

Here is the first one

Who Am I History

















Description:
Who Am I History
A history trivia game.
You have to guess who is in the image.
You have a choice of four different people.
Object of the game is to guess who the image is before time runs out.
The quicker you guess the more points you earn.
If you earn more points you move up levels.
Each level assigns a status name to you.
Each level gets less time to guess and less points to earn making it more difficult to move to higher levels.
The boxes disappear as time ticks down revealing the image.
Clues appear to help you out.
Clues get less in higher levels.
Beat the high scores and improve your own.
There are 11 levels to reach.
A great trivia who am I game for history lovers.
100 different people to guess.
See how well you know your history and the people who made changes or are important in history.
A great brain teaser and puzzle for the whole family.



I made a couple more, here is Criminal Trivia, you have to guess who the famous criminal is.


here is some screenshots












The next one is a celebrity trivia game, same rule applies as above, this one has more images as there are a lot more celebrities to choose from.

Linux Mint now has html5 coming for the new mdm.
This got my curiosity  up since I like making things that move around a screen, so I decided to make some animated mdm themes for the Linux Mint new mdm.
You can check out all the themes I made here: http://samriggs.deviantart.com/gallery/

Now to get this working on your Linux Mint machine there is instructions and a download to install and how to get it up and running go here: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2327

There is also a thread on the Linux Mint Forum to keep you updated on more themes and updates and just general new mdm stuff here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=126979

This is a fascinating new twist on the mdm login screen allowing us to make pretty much anything that can be created in html5 for the login screen.
Another great move for linux mint.
