No longer the preserve of daytime television shows, nowadays it's possible for anyone to prove how much of a smart Alec they are by playing quizzes on a PC or through the Net. Although not exactly polished in terms of presentation, the game interface looked colourful enough to warrant us taking a closer look.

The trouble is, we probably shouldn't have bothered. After eventually figuring out how to play the game, we were treated to a succession of bland, boring questions that were pretty easy even for this uneducated reviewer. You're already given the number of letters in the word of the answer and seem to be allowed to keep guessing letters if you make a mistake. Hence, winning a game by answering the question "what's the closest planet to the Sun" wasn't greatly satisfying, especially because it only takes three rounds of questions to win the game.

What's more, the game only seems to work in two-player mode and there's no option to play against the computer or against other people online. But perhaps the most frustrating thing of all is that if you get one question wrong then it's game over – the program just shuts down completely immediately.

Polespo is a quiz game where words are to be guessed right by letters. The game comprises three levels, on each of which answers to questions about history, mythology, science, geography, sport games, nature and other topics are to be found.

On each level one is to play against two rivals who through guessing letters right will take away your points or, having guessed the word right, will deprive you of the opportunity to continue the game. You will play for hours on end!

For each letter in the word that you guess right a definite number of points will be added to your score, and at the culmination of the game you will be able to send the result of your game to our site.
