Fireback Movies is a new kind of movie trivia game in which opponents battle with their movie knowledge. All plays are movie names, and movies are connected by actors. You play a movie connected to mine, then I play one connected to yours. Opponents fire movies back and forth getting points for each play. It may take seven or more connected movies to reach 100 points and win the game.
Fireback Movies is simple to understand but challenging and entertaining. Traditional trivia games ask random lists of trivia questions. In Fireback Movies, each player dynamically creates the challenge posed to the opponent on each turn. For example, if your opponent plays Boogie Nights, you could fire back Almost Famous (connected by Philip Seymour Hoffman.) There are limitless possibilities of finding one degree connections between movies using any actor.
Fireback Movies is a casual game where players can take their turns when they want. Fireback Movies checks your connections by referencing its proprietary database of 250,000 movies. It knows when there is more than one connection even when you do not. When players take their turns, the app gives immediate feedback to support the option for rapid-fire play. The actors who connect movies are shown after each play.
Unlike most trivia games, Fireback Movies lets you show your personality. In Fireback Movies, players play movies they are familiar with. As opponents reveal their movie knowledge, you learn about them. A game against one friend is a different experience from one against another.
Plays in Fireback Movies are strategic. Some connected movies score more points than others. If you can play a movie with different actor connections from the last play, it is called a Change Connection and gets the most bonus points. Bonus points are also awarded for multiple actor connections and fast play.
When players are stumped in Fireback Movies, they can use lifelines or pass. Lifelines are popular movies connected by popular actors that keep the game fun for both players. Fireback Movies is a freemium full-featured game with no limitations requiring purchases or advantages for people to "pay to win."
One Degree Games created Fireback Movies to give movie fans a new way to connect with each other by connecting movies!

I’m still uncertain about some of the scoring, but the basic concept of forming a chain of films based upon actors in common is deceptively simple. I quickly found that I didn’t remember these as well as I thought.
As with any online play, there are people out there who really know their stuff )or have an IMDB window open to cheat) so I’ve found playing with friends more enjoyable than the random match-ups.
I find the computer opponent challenging, although I’m finally giving it a run for its money as I work out scoring.
Great game for movie buffs by KSA1001
My family has been playing a version of this and for years. It great to see someone put it in app form for all to enjoy. Couldn’t recommend more.

Movie Knowledge??? by deadly9
Best. Game. Ever.
Seriously addictive and endlessly challenging
Fun by Kdc1971
Great time killer and a great way to show off your movie knowledge (or lack there of)
Need better quality control by RichL6014
Brando was not in Superman Returns and Bill Hader was not in Rush Hour 2. Also Rush Hour 1 and 2 did not share nearly the entire cast. Great idea but needs serious tweaking to be great!
Fast n' fun. by Sacredfist
Definitely a must for any cinephile. You can keep a list of faves, but more importantly you can keep a list of "to see" movies. I haven't played that much and I forget a lot of info at times so I'm hoping this app will keep my synapses firing. It's doing a good job so far.
Addicting by Debbiekeating
Love it, a lot of fun
Fun to Play by goldleader44
Easy to use app. Game is fun to play and matchup helps keep the action going when friends are offline. I'd like to see a way to communicate with opponents.
Great game, lots of fun for movie buffs. by Gary Serpico
I really enjoy this game. The only problem I have is that it's hard to get all my friends to play and keep playing. I think expert movie buff Gregg Turkington would love it.
Lots of fun! by dvander64
IMDB the game.
An addictive blast by Cl82600
Heard about this on the movie crypt podcast and it is a ton of fun. I upgraded already and it was well worth it.
Lots of fun by The Dark Winter
Really enjoyable game. Please build in some safeguards against cheaters: e.g. those who stop playing when it is evident that they will lose a game (the game should time out on them after x-days of no response), and those who are using IMDB to cheat.
Movie Addicts Unite! by Lyonsfam
The perfect app for the movie addict like myself.
Best Game Ever!! by Murray's mum
Fireback movies is so much fun! The game can be made more or less challenging because you can choose to be timed or not. You can have as many games going as you want so you're never bored. I heard about this game on my favorite podcast The Movie Crypt, and I've been playing everyday since. If you love movies, you will LOVE this game!
Great game by craigers24
Great game! Very enjoyable and well crafted. The ads are annoying but that is easily resolved with $1.99.

Fireback Movies is great by timb0slice
The perfect movie trivia game. It is super fun and well made.
Fire back by Ratat_kay
Fun and addictive
Fireback Movies is phenomenal by TheSAPCs
I heard of this game from Adam Green & Joe Lynch on the Moviecrypt podcast & they described a streamlined digital version of the six degrees of Kevin Bacon game so I immediately downloaded the app thought it was brilliant and before I even finished my first game I purchased the ad free version one because the game is amazing and two if you can afford a smartphone then Hell why can't you afford to spare $2 for a game you'll play a hundred fold over and easily make it worth it 5/5 stars in my book
a super solid movie game by prkchopexpress

Fun game, some frustrations by christinebarger
This game is fun!
It is frustrating to have to wait for other players to play. I have had several games going but only a couple of people play regularly and even then you usually have to wait at least 10 minutes or more per turn. Also I've gotten updates that I've been poked to play, but when I log in it says it's not my turn. But most frustrating is that some of movies aren't listed so you can't choose them, and some actor connections are wrong.
Nope by 61839291838
UI is confusing. There is no way to leave a game once it has started. Database does not contain all connections.
What a rush! by MovieMomma!
This game is a blast and fun way to connect with friends.
Fireback Movies! by Darens7inchdick
Probably one of the most challenging games I've played in a while.
Addictive, but has real issues by shoegirl!
This game is a lot of fun but the way it's set up makes it difficult to play. For one thing, I'm always playing the same people. It gets old really fast. Secondly, unless you win the game with an answer you never are alerted that you've won. I often just forget about the game especially because it's the same people all the time. Thirdly, one of the lifelines never works and I have no clue how to use all of my points. What do people use them on? This game could be more interesting if there was more at stake and the layout was more professional.
Love it by Martydet
Fun! by This Guy 05
Great game.. It would be neat if there was an option to raise the 'play to' score.
Great game!! by Mannus78
Wowww love this game!
Great Game! by Kevin-in-Austin
What a great game for even people who don't like to play games! Like myself! Thanks for developing this ap for free!
Too many ads by Fisurman75
Love playing the game but way too many ads. Makes the game play too clunky and frustrating.
Fun interplay, but glitchy data by BMT-hiker
Having fun playing against my movie buff friends, but the scoring is eratic and the "connections" often don't register correctly. Common movies don't show up in the search while the countdown clock keeps on ticking. Frustrating at times, especially since this game likely attracts movie trivia fans. Could be a great game but it's only OK.
Love it by Clickinoc
Connections by SnowPixie
It is ok. Connections should include directors as well. The database needs an update!!! Who hasn't heard of Transylvania 65000??? And players should be able to send messages like on Words with Friends and Scrabble. Not sucked in yet.
I'm a fan by Vic McWherter
This game is fun and addictive for movie buffs! Its also fun to learn about actors and all the different movies in which they've had roles.
Tons of fun by Bayouradio
Good for the brain too. Though it's not allowed a few genuine connections.
Love it! by Mel2367
Perfect for movie and actor obsessed peeps like me:)
Fun game by Emilyjane33
Great app, it's addicting and I'm not a gamer app person at all but this has a large movie database that is constantly updating and there's always people to play against, hardly any waiting time at all unlike with other apps!
