For two reasons...
1) First the questions are american only, wich makes the game impossible.
2) Medals are not working.
Most of the questions are from Pluto and beyond, It would be better if there was a difficulty button T.T
Potentially good idea, but seriously flawed
It's very US-centric. Every time I think I'm getting somewhere, some weird question requiring you to know a lot about the US comes up and I'm stuffed.
Try and get some more generalised questions about several countries, and cut the deeper knowledge ones.
I think learning about the world around you (the entire world) is interesting enough. Sure, there's plenty of NBA questions, but I've seen NBA scholars in the Philippines. Deep in the jungle, natch. So, I think that the questions are fine.
THIS made the front page?!?
This is absolutely terrible. I'm awed this has made the front page, much less achieved a 3.2 which is already a pretty horrendous score. Eek =|
this would a kinda good game if (some of) the questions woudn't be that us-centered;
this makes the newgrounders outside of the states to have a really hard time getting the medals;
plus, this game requires much luck; once i managed to score 2.4k out of 3 questions, then i got just 1.4k from answering 6 stupid questions...
luck, and being american shoudn't be required in such a great measure to get any medal; this game really dosen't deserve it's medals >_<
you should also add basic options, like 'mute'... or 'i am not from the US'
overall, i give you 2 stars from the effort you did to animate that door, and manage to lurk enough on wikipedia to get all those questions
