Quiz shows always seem easy when you’re watching them on TV, don’t they? “No, you fool,” you yell at the hapless contestant who’s only banked a measly £2,000 so far. “The answer is clearly the Serbian dinar!”
The Chase: Ultimate Edition gives players the chance to try out the popular ITV game show of the same name… and then discover that actually it’s very hard indeed.
There are three difficulty levels to choose from, but even ‘normal’ will get all but the cleverest of brain-boxes scratching their bonce.
First you run through a quick-fire round to earn as much (fictional) money as you can, then answer a set number of questions to make it home safe with your cash. But the expert chaser is on your tail the whole time.
In the final round, players must answer as many questions as possible, in the hope that the chaser won’t have time to get the same number right. If they can do that, they’ve won the game.
The Chase features the likenesses of all the chasers from the TV show plus host Bradley Walsh’s voice to encourage you, so it’s an authentic experience. To spice things up, though, you can play against friends – or add them to your team, so you can yell in frustration at your mates instead of yourself.
