Battle Trivia Knockout released on the PSN store for PS4 and soon PS3 this week and its quite a different kind of trivia game.
I ran across this unknown little game and thought I would let everyone know about it. I stole the descriptions from the developer's site: happydancegames.com
Full Game Mode
There are two ways to play Battle Trivia Knockout - Full Game Mode or Single Matches.
Full Game Mode is the entire game, with all rounds and features that last about 30-40 minutes. In this mode, players will travel from arena to arena battling opponents and/or computer players for the title of Trivia Master.
If you are looking for a quick battle or you prefer a particular game mode, then selectone of the four available Single Matches on the right hand side of the main menu. You can play as many times as you like!
Matches, Rounds and Brackets
I really liked how the trivia game is played in a bracket system, head to head.
Battle Trivia Knockout games are broken down into Matches. Each match contains three (3) rounds where two players go head to head. The winner of the first round will battle the winner of the second round. The players who lose are eliminated until the next match or when players travel to the next arena in Full Game Mode.

THIS IS UNIQUE TO TRIVIA and I LOVE IT!!
The goal of Battle Trivia Knockout is to 'knockout' your opponent with your trivia knowledge. By answering each question correctly the fastest, you will be awared the 'Attack Wheel'. The 'Attack Wheel' (Red Wheel) has many different damage amounts around the outside ring. When a player stops the wheel, the damage amount inside the gold slot/box is the amount of damage the player will deal to their opponent.
The opponent has a chance to defend against the attacker with the 'Defend Wheel' (Green Wheel). When the opponent stops their wheel, the defend amount inside the gold slot/box is the amount of damage points they can withsand before they begin to lose health points.
If the defend amount is less than the damage dealt, then they will lose health points.
If the defend amount is eqaul or higher than the attack amount, they receive no damage.
I found myself struggling at first until I realized what I had to do, There are instructions but I didn't read them. When you play this round with friends it gets insane really quickly!
Get ready for a whole new and exciting way to play trivia! In this mode, players can fight each other for the answer they feel is the one for them! Once the question is presented, players must quickly tap the corresponding answer button. Every time they tap the button, the answer box on screen moves to their side. Once players get the answer they want to their side, a padlock will appear. Players can lock in the answer by tapping until the padlock fills up and becomes bigger.
If the player decides they want a different answer, they must stop pressing the first answer button before the answer box locks and then start pressing the new answer button they prefer.
Players can select more than one answer at a time but they must be careful, any wrong answers the player has pulled to their side will cost them points and damage!
Correct Answer on your side - Win 1000 points (green box)
Any Incorrect answer on your side - you lose 500 points and take 200 damage!
This mode was just wager points on the next question but if you suck at trivia like I do, then this might save your butt!
Continued from 'That Trivia Game', the game mode 'Wise Wager' is all about your confidence in being able to answer the upcomming question correctly. Players
select the amount of their points they wish to wager. If the player answers correctly, the wager amount will be added to their score. Be careful, get the answer wrong and your scores will go negative!
Overall a great little game for 6 bucks
