My biggest problem with Akinator is that he never asks the correct questions, and the only way to help change the questions is by making it guess the character which you can’t do if the character has simulator traits to another. I tried many times to get him to guess Leon from the new released game Brawl Stars yet it keeps guessing characters from sub way surfers or other games like that. And the game makes it so ONLY if Akinator is correct on his first guess you get the coins so I always click yes unless it’s a character I guessed before and sometimes something pops up that says “cheat” and I will lose points or something if I keep saying yes to people which makes me think sometimes it knows what my character is but it gives me another random character to see if I’ll say yes to it. It still is a good game but they need to fix some things. Maybe make it so if Akinator isn’t correct and he needs another chance you still can get coins for him not guessing your character the first time.
I was working on a very difficult character and clicked “yes” at the end, in order to eliminate the character the stupid genie gave me, otherwise it would have come back over and over again and my character wouldn’t have ever been in play. So, I clicked “yes” only to find out it was some fictitious character and I was told I was being watched for cheating. SCREW THAT! This game is for fun. I wasn’t cheating! I was trying to eliminate a character so that I could try again and maybe the dumb bot could guess the person I was actually thinking of. The fact is, this genie is a process of elimination bot and it has become so vague that it’s not hard to fool the genie over and over again. Try playing for Clive Bundy. Good luck. (They’ll fix this quickly I’m sure, but it was impossible to get the genie to guess him). This game used to be a fun way to pass mindless time, but they have gotten a little to big for their britches. If I have to worry about being called out as a cheater for something for which I neither pay nor use, you can keep your stupid app. I deleted mine and will not be downloading it on my children’s phone. Screw you Akinator. You can’t guess half my characters anyway and you treat your customers like crap. Good luck with your ridiculous app. I’m out! What a bunch of bot bull crap!
I love this app, and have played it since I was very young! It always was a fun game to play with family and friends to see if the Genie could guess characters we thought of. I got a new phone over Christmas and forgot about this app until I saw it on the App Store again! I immediately downloaded, thinking it would be fun to play again. I remembered about the Prank your Friends option, where you could make something pop up as a friend to freak them out a little. I wanted to do this to one of my friends, but I soon realized the option had been removed! I was very upset to see that this game mode was no longer available, which was a huge part of the fun! Overall, this is a great app, but I would appreciate it more if this game mode was put back in the game. Maybe I missed it somewhere, but this is the only reason for my 3 star review, and if it is added back to the game, it will be a 5 star game for sure!! Thank you, game-reviewer17
The interface reminds me of how apps looked on the iPhone 3G. There needs to be more information, like showing how many questions he asked to find the answer, like the website does. Also making more fanfare if you stump him, or at least showing a screen confirming he was stumped, and showing you results. The index works really well, and is surprisingly fun. For movies, there really needs to be clear distinction between asking about a character, versus asking about an actor. Saying, “has your character appeared in comedies,” is different than saying, “is the movie your character is in a comedy.” Asking, “was your character in Grown Ups?” And then asking if the character is married can be obnoxiously confusing because I don’t know if your asking about the actual fictional character or the actor.
I really enjoy the gameplay of this app, and I’m often surprised by what it is able to guess. However, the app could use some serious work. One major issue is that the user is punished for the AI’s inability to guess a character the first time around. You lose the reward you would get for guessing an obscure character because it has similarities to a more well known character. The app is also weirdly militant about “cheating”. Basically if it thinks you are just selecting random answers, it will give you a fake answer, then berate you if you choose yes on it. What led to me writing this review (something I basically have never done before) was having the character I was legitimately thinking of come up as this fake answer. Berating people for answering truthfully and playing the game is not a good way to retain users.
Akinator can read your mind and tell you what character you are thinking of, just by asking a few questions. Think of a real or fictional character and Akinator will try to guess who it is.
