So, are you a proud member of "Team Edward"? Or perhaps, you prefer guys who can catch a golden snitch for you. Whichever is the case, you'll be able to see if your celebrity crush is also your perfect match. To find out, you are given ten short questions to answer. No, there's no need to reveal your deepest, darkest secrets. You don't even have to elaborate anything. All you'll need to do is choose from a pool of five preset answers and press its corresponding button. Note that not all of these are in text format -- some options are represented by icons instead. The good news is that if any of the images aren't readily recognizable to you, you may simply hover over them to display a short description on top.
Although there are only ten of them, the questions do cover various topics. Do you dislike it when a guy constantly checks his phone when he's with your do you hate it more when he shows up late for your date? You'll need to be honest if you wish to get accurate results. From the film you find the most romantic to your ideal first date, the questions will give you a lot of things to think about. Don't worry. There is no right or wrong answer here. The Famous Date Quiz is just for fun and the phrasing is kept classy so even 13-year old Harry Potter fans would be able to enjoy it.
After answering all ten questions, you will be able to view your results. This basically consists of an image of your perfect celebrity match as well as a short write up to describe who they. You know, in case you don't watch movies much and you end up getting someone you're not familiar with. We do appreciate the fact that the developers added some flair into the descriptions. Instead of a straightforward bulleted list or a boring one-liner, the writer actually put in some effort into adding fun facts and changing the delivery.
We would have liked to see some extra interactive features like the ones that appear in many other date games. It would have been nice to have a few questions that require you to put together a red carpet outfit. An avatar creator with unlockables would extend the game's play time. Better yet, a dynamic results page which features an animated version of your celeb crush and allows you to take screen cap "pictures" with them would add more of an incentive to answer the quiz again. Considering that this quiz game was made in Flash, it's just too bad that it still seems to suffer from traditional HTML restrictions.
Easy On the Eyes
In terms of its visuals, Famous Date Quiz gets the job done. The layout is dominantly pink with heart icons to match and a line of cameras serving as a progress bar at the top of the screen. The illustrations are cartoony but considering the art style and the colors chosen, they can pass for icons used in teen magazines. In line with the theme, a red carpet scene serves as the backdrop too. It's not really our favorite game layout but it works and it's not too shabby. On the other hand, the background music does leave something to be desired. It's peppy and upbeat enough but it's too easy to tell when the clip ends and loops. With a little more polish, this really wouldn't be a big deal.
So how does the Famous Date Quiz match up to other titles in the casual dating genre? While there's always room for improvement, quiz game fans will undoubtedly enjoy its simplicity. In less than five minutes, you can find out whether you're a great match for Daniel Radcliffe or the Biebs. The overall design does fit the theme, plus the variety of questions give you a chance to get to know more about yourself. Of course, this is all just for fun. It has no scientific basis so if you're after a detailed personality analysis, you'd best look elsewhere.
Play the Famous Date Quiz once if you're feeling star struck and you've got a few minutes to spare. Or try to get every result by answering the quiz in many different ways. Who knows? You may just find out a fun little fact about your celebrity crush.
