It's time to play Who Wants To Be A Millionaire! Capcom has released the 2011 version which has been updated with the new syndicated version’s rules, and has retina quality graphics, and Game Center support. The new system has the same number of questions for each amount, but they're each given a category, and shuffled around so you can go from a $15,000 question back to $500, instead of going up in monetary order. The lifelines have changed as well with just ask the audience the same, and two chances to skip the current question, but phone a friend, 50:50, and ask the expert are gone. The 2011 version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is the fastest yet, and you can get through a whole game in mere minutes. You can play at your own pace from reading and answering the question to moving on to the next one. There are a few different cut scenes of the money you won, and the progress board that can all be skipped with a tap, and you transition instantaneously. There is no slow down in the game so you can really take the questions like rapid fire which makes it so much more enjoyable. There are 1000 questions loaded in the game so you will need to play a long time to see a repeat. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire has never looked so good with the retina quality graphics which makes reading every question so nice. The authentic sound effects are included, and every time you tap an answer it asks if it's your final answer. The game keeps track of your lifetime earnings, and achievements to compare on Game Center. The questions have a great balance of challenge and ease as the show is known for, and with the speed you can take the questions it makes it one of the best trivia experiences on iOS. The game has a great way to make you feel tense on later questions even though you're not playing for the real money. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2011 (Universal $0.99) is a should buy for $0.99 that improves the game show experience for iOS, and yes that is my final answer.
