iQuiz iPod Game Surfaces
Apple is bringing at least one new game to the iPod in the near future, say visitors to France's iTunes Store. Titled iQuiz, the internally developed Apple game briefly appeared but then disappeared from the French site and will expand on the basic Music Quiz program included with the fifth-generation iPod and the iPod nano. Its interface will be enhanced and the game itself will be the first to let players actively share information between each other through custom question lists, according to the description.
"Test your entertainment knowledge with iQuiz, a timed question-and-answer game for your iPod," it reads. "Test your knowledge of the songs, artists and albums present on your iPod and take on the challenges of questions about movies, music and television. Create your own personalized Trivia Packs and play those created by others."
Apple hasn't officially announced iQuiz but says it will require iTunes 7.1 or later, quashing the possibility that the game will be attached to a software update. Expectations are that the game will be made available worldwide.
