If you’re a fan of the Scene It? franchise of DVD board and mobile movie trivia games, then break out your knowledge of sappy, happily ever after romance movies. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Scene It? Romance tests your romantic film savvy and lets you relive moments from favorite boy meets girl flicks. Scene It? Romance spans decades of heartwarming romantic comedies from Grease, The Breakfast Club and Footloose to Leap Year and It’s Complicated.
Players can enjoy single player mode, as well as two multiplayer modes – one using a single device and another using Bluetooth or WiFi and multiple devices. Trivia questions include filling in the blank, completing love triangles, matching movie factoids with movie posters, and more. Anyone with a bit of general movie knowledge can play, but those whose heart is hardened and have never been introduced to the likes of Definitely, Maybe or Sleepless in Seattle should brush up on famous romantic story lines.
Scene It? Romance has a host of categories to choose from and tracks the ones you’ve played by highest score. There are 30 different sets, each featuring a combination of the same types of questions, quizzes and games. The “rub to reveal” game is not a favorite of mine, but matching movie posters, answering questions after viewing (high quality) movie clips, and going head to head with other romantic movie buffs is entertaining. After completing a round, users have the option of visiting iTunes and purchasing movies.
Scene It? Romance is laden with cupid-esque animation and fun “kissy” sound effects and makes for a great single or multiplayer movie trivia game. While just another installment in the Scene It? mobile game franchise, this romantic version is especially made for lovers, not fighters. The introductory price is higher than previous releases that have been around for awhile. The price may come down with time, but it has a fairly large set of unique questions and makes a good party game.
