gWhiz Updates Mobile App, PrepZilla, With Zombies! Self-Study Game
Annapolis, Maryland – Prepping for an exam, typically, is a dull undertaking and solitary process. Students may take notes, review textbook material, and quiz themselves, all on their own. Imagine this same process with a healthy dose of friendly competition thrown in. With PrepZilla, a mobile test prep app from leading educational developer, gWhiz, prepping for exams has, quite literally, become a game.
PrepZilla allows users to study on their own or invite friends to a virtual study duel. With two modes – self-study and study with friends – users have a chance to review the material at their own pace or challenge their friends to a battle of wits. And, now, users who choose the self-study mode have a brand new gaming option entitled Zombies!. Zombies! is designed to allow users to test their mastery of the material by pitting them against a ticking clock as they attempt to score enough points to avoid joining the ranks of the undead.
“By combining asynchronous game play with high-value content from major publishers, PrepZilla takes a unique approach to mobile test prep,” remarks Kevin Reville, gWhiz founder. “We believe PrepZilla users will appreciate the new Zombies! game feature as a fun, new way to challenge themselves as they master the material.”
With a growing library of 50 titles from respected publishers such as McGraw-Hill, Barron’s, CCI, and Florida Virtual School, users have a wide range of test prep topics from which to choose. Each topic comes with a complimentary set of questions and answers and is expandable through in-app purchase. New titles are added often.
PrepZilla’s game model adds a new twist to traditional mobile test prep, proving addictively engaging to students of all ages and from all walks of life. Whether users want to prepare for an exam or just pass the time with a friendly match-up, this iOS app fits the bill. No other test prep app on the market today can compare. PrepZilla makes studying fun, seriously.
