This is Secret Agent Trivia, losely based on the format of the television trivia program, "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire".

In this game, you are tested on your ability to answer questions about a Spy's potential theater of operation: Afghanistan. A Secret Agent must be able to blend into a culture, there for it is essential to know everything about the language, history, and peoples. The national security of your homeland depends on your ability 'know your enemy'. The more you can answer, the more lives you save back home.

I am releasing this game in a version that has only one question per level. There are 15 levels, with the questions increasing in difficulty as you progress. When I originally created this game, I had as many as 10 randomly selected questions per level, so that you would only get asked one question for level 1, but if you replayed the game, you would probably get asked a different question on level 1 the second time. Apparently, flash will allow only so many random functions in one game, and the game froze on level 7. I'm assuming it has to do with the random action script function, because when I removed them from the game and used only 1 question scene per level, the game runs fine. I posted here on NG forums and on flashkit, but no one knew of such a bug. I'm releasing the game after days and days of attempting to make it work with the random function (more than 200 scenes with 63 total questions in 15 levels), but to no avail. If I can find a way to make the random functions work and put all the questions back into the game, I will update it here.

Enjoy!

Right

Having been to Afghanistan I can honestly say that this is a very poor example of what someone would have to know if they wanted to work as a Special Agent in Afghanistan.

First off, the most widely spoken language in Afghanistan is Pashto. Special Agents will likely learn Dari as that's the language spoken by the upper class individuals living in Kabul and Kandahar. Everyone speaks Pashto, poor and rich.

If you've ever been there you'll realize that while most people are Muslim, they're not very devout. For the sake of accumulating booksmarts one might want to know what the Hajj is. Afghans don't usually go so far as to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, the prayers they do (sometimes).

Why would a Special Agent need to know that the closest latitude to Afghanistan is the Tropic of Cancer? It's a land-locked country.

This game seemed more like an attempt to show off some small amount of understanding in regard to Islam.

A Special Agent might need to know from what nation the Taliban are funded, or what is used as their major source of financial income, or even what method is used to produce electrical power for Afghanistan. I wouldn't include any questions relating to military protocol as most of it would probably relate to OPSEC.
