QuizAlarm

QuizAlarm is a fun game to play when your alarm goes off in the morning.

QuizAlarm is a game that runs on your computer. Before you go to bed, you set the time it should go off at and a subject that you want to test your knowledge in.

When the alarm goes off the next morning, it asks you a question. Instead of hitting a button (or worse, hitting snooze) like a normal alarm, to shut QuizAlarm off, you need to answer the question correctly. If you know the answer, you can turn it off quickly and feel good about yourself. But if you don’t, you need to take a little extra time to figure out the answer, and you learn something new in the process.

The QuizAlarm game stimulates your mind, encouraging you to stay up once you’re out of bed, and it also helps you learn new things. It’s perfect for students who want to study for a class, people who feel they want to know more about current events, or anybody who wants to learn about anything. Since QuizAlarm can pull its questions from the internet, the possibilities for subjects it can quiz you on are almost endless.
