Fox has partnered up with Capcom to bring all the excitement and fun of the television show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader to your mobile phone. The game has hundreds of questions and simulated students to create the charm, humor and deceptively difficult questions that feeds the popularity of the television game show.
Like the television show, the mobile game asks a series of questions about history, math and social studies. If players answer enough questions they can work their way to the $1 million question (in simulated money), but if they falter they’re forced to utter the phrase, “I am not smarter than a 5Th grader.” Of course, if real kids aren’t around colorful expletives may inadvertently come out. To aid players, simulated students provide peek, copy and save assistance just like in the television show.
“ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?(TM) for mobile is the perfect opportunity to entertain the whole family while on the go,” said Fox Mobile Entertainment Senior Vice President, Mitch Feinman.
“ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?(TM) has become a national phenomenon, and we’re thrilled to work with Fox Mobile Entertainment to adapt
this irreverent entertainment experience to the mobile platform,” said Capcom Interactive President, Midori Yuasa. “Using the TV show as a blueprint we will deliver a title that remains true to the brand, while incorporating a uniquely Capcom flair into the design.”
