Wiki Racing Support Page

Wiki Racing has been released into the App Store!

Wiki Racing is a game which incorporates Wikipedia links to travel from one page to another. The objective of the game is to get from the beginning random page to the end Wikipedia page the fastest. Some key features in Wiki Racing include:

• Being able to choose between a Wikipedia page you decide on as the target, or one randomly chosen.
• Timer and menu screen to show what page you are currently on, what your target is, and how many clicks you have gained.
• End game statistics — how many total clicks, how much time it took to get to the end as well as images of each web page visited in an easy scrolling page history.
• Bluetooth functionality — players can play against one another in both Custom and Random games.

Update: Just updated the application to 1.0.1, to fix Wikipedia’s random page link change, just waiting on approval.

Update 2: New 1.0.1 is now on the App Store! I will be slowly working on some new improvements, and may even write a tutorial redoing this application in iOS 5, if anyone wants it!

  1. Can you give a little description of the app? 😛

    Wiki Racing is an awesome idea, I’ve had a similar one as yours. Some times, for fun, i go to a random article and then try to reach a target page with as few clicks as possible 🙂 Never thought of making it into an iOS app though… good luck!
