World Cup 2014 interactive multiple choice quiz. Can be played offline

How to play

Choose a team (first round questions are geared towards that team) and then beat the computer - and the clock - to score goals, win bonus points and progress to the next round of the tournament.

The game is devised in five rounds -- Group stage, 2nd Round, Quarter-finals, Semi-finals, and the Final.

The questions are selected randomly but get progressively harder through the rounds.

To progress to the next round you have to get 50% of the questions correct.

Every time you make a mistake or do not reply in the time allocated, the opposition gets a point.

If you win a point you get a bonus. Bonuses can be used to pass on questions you don't know the answer to.
