4 Degrees: The Arc of Trivia - Volume 1 is an adaptation of the Game Wave title 4 Degrees: The Arc of Trivia for smartphones. It is a trivia quiz game that can be played solo against computer opponents or against online players powered by the social gaming technology of J2Play.

Players take on opponents in a series of questions from six categories: Arts & Words & Song, Lifestyle & People, News & Events, Sports & Games, Movies & Television, and Nature & Mankind. Just like the original game, one player get to throw a die before the questions start to double, triple, or halve the possible score. In solo the die is always for the human player. In multiplayer it is switched around between the human players. Each question comes with four possible answers. As soon as the question is read, the clock starts ticking down from 50. By answering quickly, more points can be earned. The title refers to the four clues that are provided as time counts down. Clues make it easier to choose the right answer, but less time on the clock leads to less points. After all players have answered, the correct answer and the scoreboard is shown. Players receive a negative score for selecting a wrong answer, so it is sometimes better to let the clock count down.

Unlike the original game with two questions per category, there is only one question for this version ? making it a six-round game instead of a twelve-round game. It also does not have the mid-game Arc of Time mini-game where players get to wager their points.

There is crossplatform multiplayer through Group Play, for the iPhone, Blackberry and browser version. [source:mobygames]
