iPhone App Review: iQuarters

iPhone App Review: iQuarters

June 5th, 2010 by

Quarters is a popular drinking game that has (finally?) made its way onto the iPad. I know there are those of you out there waiting with baited breath to find out if your favorite frat-house game has been done justice in an electronic format. Well wait no more, if you like the game of quarters then this iPad game is for you.

Flip off the cell phone, into a lighter, past the plane, into the glass.


iQuarters features passable 3-D graphics and physics to simulate the tossing of a quarter into an increasingly difficult series of glasses and bottles. You have a limited number of quarters to complete all 12 levels, and completing a level takes three successful throws. On each level there is generally an easy shot that you can make three times easily, but as the difficulty increases you are offered greater challenges for more points. You can also play a multi-player game with up to four people by passing the iPad around.  or You can also play a multi-player game with up to four people by passing the iPad around.


iQuarters has decent 3-D graphics and seems to have good physics, or at least good enough to accurately tell whether you landed the quarter in the glass or not. It’s a simple game but one that does well at helping you pass the time without much thought. The levels are well-designed and as challenging as they ought to be in a game like this, which is really not very. You don’t play this game to be frustrated, you play to pass the time and try to beat your own prior score.

Off the catapult, hit the soda bottle, into the glass.

It’s single best feature though is that it’s a universal app for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. You get a much better tavern-gaming experience on the iPad simply by virtue of the size of the screen. The quarter is basically drawn at real-life scale.


The only niggling problem I had with the game was that the toss of the quarter doesn’t seem 100% accurate. When you flick your finger to throw the coin it seems to only be able to launch in a few pre-determined angles. It’s not a huge deal given that the level design rarely offers more than a few targets but it seems to be a missed opportunity for more creative levels.

While on the subject of levels it would also be nice to include more levels (there are only 12 in this game) and a level designer in a future update.


iQuarters is a nice little game to pass the time with a group of friends. It’s simplicity offers little challenge to the average player but is a good time-waster for adults, or even a decent game for children.
