Free mind-reading game

Akinator the Genie is a mobile game developed by Elokence. This free-to-play app is the official app for the famous genie of the same name. As with the original PC version, Akinator will attempt to guess the character—real or fiction—that you have in mind.

Akinator the Genie uses an algorithm in guessing. Like the 20 questions game, he will ask you 25 questions to narrow down the answer to a single likely option. The game is done if Akinator guesses correctly or provides three wrong guesses in a row. Note that the game requires a stable internet connection.

How to play Akinator?

Playing Akinator the Genie is easy. Once launched, you only need to press the play button and think of a character that frequents your mind. As mentioned, you can think of any character, real or fictional. Then, Akinator, the cartoon genie, will ask a series of questions to narrow down the answer. The options to answer include yes, no, don't know, probably, and probably not.

In the beginning, the questions will be general. As you respond more, the Genie will ask more specific questions, such as the color of your hair or what animated series he is from. Akinator guesses after 25 questions. However, he may automatically ask if the guessed answer is correct. When the guess is wrong three times in a row, the game will prompt you to provide the answer.

In the recent version of Akinator the Genie, the game is no longer limited to characters. You can now challenge him to guess the movies or animals you have in mind. Moreover, the mobile version also lets you win an Aki Award if you manage to defeat Akinator. There are also customization options, allowing you to customize Akinator to your liking and put him in a new background. 

Is Akinator the Genie fun?

To conclude, Akinator the Genie is a casual game that is fun and easy to play. It challenges you to outsmart a computer algorithm by thinking of the most random characters, movies, and animals in the world. More than the unique game premise, there are also nifty features that you can have fun exploring. The ads and repeated questions can be a bummer, though. Nevertheless, it is an entertaining game to play.
