Quizzes are a type of game used on Roblox, formerly dominating the front page alongside tycoons. Quizzes usually make the player go through many rooms with doors. The doors typically had text or decals on them. Users then had to chat who or what the image or text depicted. If correct, the door will open, allowing them to pass. This continues until the player reaches the end of the Quiz and is rewarded.
Each quiz had a different topic, such as "Guess the Color", "Guess the Robloxian", or "Guess the Character". This game genre allowed game developers to be more unique with their game idea whilst still following the trend of quiz games, as they could pick any topic they were interested in.
Issues and Criticism
Quizzes have shown problems for several users. For example, <13 chat players cannot answer the questions due to some words being filtered. Also, other users disliked quizzes with harder questions, causing these types of games to have a bad reputation. This was extremely hard for whitelisted people, where they had to use Safe Chat while it existed.
In 2013-2014, quizzes have received a massive popularity on the front page. The "Quiz" genre blew up so much that year, it's hard to estimate how many are there.
However, in 2015, quiz genre games started to decline. There are many reasons behind this, such as bait-and-switch scammers or the blow-up in well developed games. In 2016, the Quiz genre has been wiped off of the front page.
Some quiz games continue to be made today, however they are not as common and not nearly as visited as they were in 2013-2014.
