Downhill Trivia and Math Mountain Review

A review of Incuvation Lab's Downhill Trivia and Math Mountain.

Downhill Trivia is an educational mobile game for both iOS and Android. It is an interesting little arcade game that uses trivia as it’s standout mechanic. Downhill Trivia is one of those little fun games you’d play in elementary school because they weren’t blocked, except it’s actually shockingly enjoyable; think of a much more interactive version of Trivia Crack and you’ve got the general idea.

The way the game works mechanically is simple but no less fun for it: You must attempt to find the safest path down a hillside textured in a way that reminds me of the glory days of minecraft, avoiding obstacles as you progress. If you lose a life in the game, you will be given an opportunity to keep your accumulated score by answering a question about a specific subject. If you answer correctly, you keep your score and continue on the same game. Answer incorrectly, and you’ll be forced to start over again with zero score. You can unlock more subjects as you accumulate a higher score; however all the subjects have to be unlocked in just one session, which makes Downhill Trivia noticeably more difficult: think Flappy Bird but trivia. 

Downhill Trivia has questions on everything! If you want to have fun and just play the game, pick Food and Drink, Technology, World Records, Games, People, Baby Names, Art and Literature, Faith and Mythology, Sports, Music, Geography, or my personal favorite, TV and Film. If you need to study, pick from Human Body and Health, Travel and Transport, Science and Nature, or History.


Math Mountain is an educational mobile game for both iOS and Android. It is an interesting little arcade game that uses math problems as it’s standout mechanic. Math Mountain is one of those little fun games you’d play in elementary school because they weren’t blocked, except it’s actually shockingly enjoyable; think of a much more interactive version of Trivia Crack focused on math and you’ve got the general idea.

If you lose a life in the game, you will be given an opportunity to keep your accumulated score by answering a question about a specific subject of math.

The game really helps learn math and is actually quite fun. I highly recommend it for anyone under the age of 12, especially if they’re having trouble mastering specific math problems. 



SCORE: 9/10
