Description

"Who knew Wikipedia could be so fun?" - Touch Arcade

"One of the most innovative games on the iPhone ... A great little app to pass the time and challenge your thinking." - App Storm

Wiki Hunt is a new and intriguing game of linking two unrelated Wikipedia articles in the least amount of clicks possible.

Navigate your way from one article to another via the links in the connecting articles. Challenge friends to see if they can link them in fewer clicks or if they can discover your path at all!

If you get stuck, Wiki Hunt can even calculate the quickest solution for the two articles!

Game Modes

- Get from a random article to Jesus' article in under 7 clicks

- Choose 2 articles to link - use anything that comes to mind!

- If you're looking for a challenge, have them picked at random

Features

- See the shortest path for any two articles

- Share your completed games directly via email or Twitter

- Search for phrases within long articles to make linking easier

- Quit and resume your game at any time

For only $1.99, Wiki Hunt is the perfect solution to pass the time, challenge your creativity, and learn new information along the way!

What's New in Version 1.3

- Added Six Clicks to Jesus game mode (where you start at a random article and have to get to Jesus in a maximum of 6 clicks)

- Added support for randomizing one of the articles in the custom game mode for iPhone version

My favorite app right now!!

:
If you love learning random things while being motivated to solve the puzzle of the game this is perfect for you. I get to read random wiki articles and then try to link them. A really brilliant idea.

5/5 stars

Great fun!

:
Such a great idea for a game, and a really fun way to explore Wikipedia too. Definitely recommended.

2/5 stars

Interesting but nearly impossible

:
If you like just browsing around wikipedia like I do then this gives a bit of a structure, but frankly when you calculate the sheer number of options it's pretty much impossible. If there were only three or so choices narrowed down on each article by highlighting then you might stand a fighting chance. Until then it doesn't really have the qualities of a real game. But high marks for creativity!
