Description

Put on your thinking app.™

"A great little time killer ... quite creative ... a nice break from the typical word association and trivia games." Examiner.com

Do you have an insatiable appetite for word puzzles and trivia games? Well, feast your brain on Categuru — the head-scratchingly awesome app that’s on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Just be careful when and where you pick Categuru up, because chances are you won’t be able to put it down.

The rules are simple: Each round, Categuru throws five related words at you. It’s up to you and that big beautiful brain of yours to figure out which category these words fall into.

The five words are simultaneously revealed, every few seconds, one letter at a time. Feeling impatient? No problem — you can manually slide the box-top to reveal another letter. But remember, the fewer letters exposed, and the faster you tap out the answer, the more points you score.

Having a brain freeze? Not to worry. Just tap the Hint button and Categuru will clue you in on the general topic — anything from business & technology to sports & leisure. If it’s general knowledge, Categuru’s got it covered. With 500 fully honed and verified categories designed by Categuru's word game experts and trivia wizards.

And don’t forget, there’s no penalty for wrong answers. Only shame…terrible, terrible shame. But seriously, take a guess and type it in. If it’s wrong, keep guessing. If it’s right, you’re on to the next round!

Even if your answer is only close to the correct answer, Categuru will either recognize your entry or prompt you for more information. For instance, if the answer is “brands of soda” simply type “soda” or “pop.”

But if the clue words are “Manet, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, and Degas” and you answer “painters, ” Categuru will ask you “painters that are…” until you answer “Impressionists” or “French.”

Categuru also recognizes some abbreviations. And they say close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

So kick-start your cerebellum and get ready for some serious mind games. It’s Categuru time.

Completely addicted

:
I'm addicted to this game. I've been playing while waiting for a flight-- stood up to discover I had stayed in the same position my leg had fallen asleep.

It is a game of multiple dimensions. Can't recommend it enough.

5/5 stars

Persuasive!

:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in possession of a good smartphone, must be in want of an application that is handsome, clever, and richly furnished with excellent amenities. I neither know nor care to hear of any application that exceeds the charms found here. He who cannot appreciate this entertainment must in the modern phrase, be clueless.

5/5 stars

Bloody fantastic!

:
Finally a game you can sink your teeth into! Love the medieval look! I’d stake my life on this being the best word game on the iStore!
