UO: Quiz PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 03 March 2007

This is something I intended to do for a long time, but was inspired recently to actually get up and do it by a different quiz type flash a friend found. Personally I'm not a great fan of the online quiz genre yet they seem to be infectious and you can find one about every subject there is, so I decided there needs to be a decent UO one and came up with this.

The hardest part was simply thinking up 100 questions that wouldn't be painfully easy and obvious via a 3 point multiple choice layout. I highly doubt anyone will get 100% as the questions vary between various playstyles and subjects. Technically it's pretty simple, the questions are chosen at random from a pool of 100, checked to ensure they haven't already been asked and then presented.

I had a few ideas on how to expand it, but to be honest it's not really worth adding to as it's just a small time killer.  I originally intended for the character who evolves as questions are asked to face off against an evolving monster on the opposite side. The more correct answers the stronger the player, the more incorrect the stronger the monster.. But it would have tripled production time for what would have been essentially meaningless fluff. Perhaps I can re-evaluate that idea for a more puzzle orientated mini game.
