Rocky & Bullwinkle’s Know-It-All Quiz Game is hosted by Bullwinkle J. Moose and features "The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle and Friends" characters, Boris, Natasha, Dudley Do-Right, Mr. Peabody and more.
The user initially heads backstage to choose the difficulty level of the game questions (easy or hard), a team to represent (WassamataU, Frostbite Falls or Pottsylvania), an avatar or spokesperson, and two cartoon teammates. The program allows for multiple players, or a single player pitted against a team of the computer’s choosing. Then it’s on with the show!
The game itself consists of three rounds of play. Before Round 1 commences, players select the order of the three designated categories. Each team gets a turn to answer five multiple-choice type questions. If a team fails to answer their question another team can buzz in (using appropriate keyboard keys) and attempt to answer. If they are correct they are awarded half the available points.
Round 2 questions are also multiple choice, but in this round the first team to hit their buzzer earns the first crack at answering the question. Round 3 includes true or false questions. In this case, points go to the first team to recognize true statements and hit their buzzers. False statements require no action.
Categories are informative and fun, ranging from Science (or "Test Tube Trivia") to Literature ("Write Stuff") to Recent Happenings ("The Years T.V. A.D.") Rocky, Bullwinkle and friends keep the game moving along with jokes and pratfalls. Each three-round game can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
