Here's an interesting quiz game that will test your app store knowledge.

Called App Icon Quiz, that's exactly what it does.

Taking the App Store icons from real apps and games, you have to guess the category, a word from the title, and then the correct title.

This sequence of three questions is presented in a multiple answer form, with added interest provided as you can bet the game's virtual currency on your success before the start of each attempt.

More than a game

Building on this, the free-to-play game lets you spend money to get more gold and unlock more icons.

There are also bombs you can use to remove incorrect answers and a social layer for brags.

Developer Zing Games says it's using App Icon Quiz as a testbed so developers can test different icon designs and see how intuitive they are.

Interested parties can sign up here for more details.

We met up with the Chicago-based studio during the Big Indie Pitch at GDC 2013, and as you can see in the following video, its next game will be Mr Runner 2.

But it was secretive about providing more details just yet.
