Users can purchase subsequent packs of 250 questions, under topics such as ‘TV & Film Buff’ and ‘Sports Fan’ for 69p.
The new game mode puts players in the driving seat of the game any time they choose, with new options, animations and audio score, to help ramp up the tension. The game features an all-new achievement system, and social sharing via Facebook and Twitter.
