Whoowasit? iOS uses the capabilities of the iOS devices to augment gameplay and presentation, which makes for a smoother, more enjoyable and immersive gaming experience.

Four unique AI-characters are ready to complement a team of real players. Each character fits into the story of the game and comes complete with individual personality, playstyle and voiced dialogue. Players can ask them for advice, and they always try to support their human partners without stealing the show.

Actions like searching rooms or casting magic spells are implemented as brief and playful activities instead of a simple button press like in the original game.

Whoowasit? iOS features an animated 3D-realization of the game board that is both faithful to the original and breathes life into the board’s many characters and locations. Improved audio quality and additional voice acting by AI-players and the new narrator are available in English, German, French and Dutch.
