Ben Stein: It's Trivial is a trivia game for the iPhone/iPod Touch featuring witty voice talent from Ben Stein and bobble-head caricatures that react to the angle and movement of the device.

The focus of the game is answering multiple-choice trivia questions in four categories of questions pulled from of pool of more than 1200. Players must answer the questions correctly to continue through all three difficulty rounds in the pursuit of earning points. There are also Bonus Lightning Questions in each category which increase bonus multipliers and keep the player's points safe.

If successful in keeping Cheex the Monkey from falling off the vine, players can bank their points or use them to have Cheex steal items of Ben Stein's personal "stuff" using a parody of the App Store. Once the player has stolen all of Ben's stuff (which can take upwards of 150 rounds of trivia), they have successfully beat Ben Stein! [source:mobygames]
