Etermax, the maker of Trivia Crack, has launched its Topic Twister mobile word game on iOS and Android. The title is part of the company’s bid to accelerate game launches during the pandemic to keep people playing games.
The title is the Buenos Aires, Argentina-based company’s fifth mobile game launch of the year as it tries to be the king of the word game sector. That will be tough to do as long as there are games like Zynga’s Words With Friends and Scopely’s Scrabble, but Etermax is no slouch with its long-running hit Trivia Crack, which is the main reason the company’s portfolio has more than 700 million downloads.
“Word, logic, and trivia games, those that help exercise the mind, have always existed,” said Mariano Fragulia, chief product officer at Etermax, in an email to GamesBeat. “At Etermax, we have been inspired by these games to reinvent them and adapt them to today’s technology, whether on mobile, social networks or even on voice devices such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa.”
She said each Etermax game has four main characteristics that stand out. They have simple mechanics that entertain even in short sessions.
