"ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?™ 2010" Graduates Onto the iPhone and iPod Touch

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - Capcom® Mobile in conjunction with Fox Mobile Entertainment today announced the release of the latest edition of the hit mobile game "ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?™ 2010" for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The trivia sensation features all-new questions and graphics, the ability to play your own music in-game, Facebook integration and additional question packs available via in app purchase.

Based on the hit game show, "ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?™ 2010" features all the charm, humor and deceptively difficult questions that make the television show a household name. In the game, players are asked a series of up to 11 questions ranging from subjects like U.S. history, math or social studies. Perform well, and players can work their way up to the $1 million question. Choke, and you'll be forced to utter the unenviable phrase: "I am not smarter than a 5th grader."

All-new, half-hour episodes of "ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?" air 5-days-a-week in national syndication as well as on CMT. In addition, MyNetworkTV premiered the syndicated version of the game show in primetime on September 29 with back-to-back episodes now airing every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy hosts this atypical game show that measures adults' lack of knowledge as revealed by how much they've forgotten since grammar school. Grownups find themselves in a classroom setting, revisiting their youth, as they tackle subjects they were taught years ago ranging from art to geography and math to social studies. In "ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?," however, the players are not alone and there is a way for contestants to "cheat" in this classroom. The adults have the opportunity to get some help in the form of elementary advice from real 5th graders who always seem to know more than the contestants.

"ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?™ 2010" for the iPhone and iPod touch is available for $4.99 on Apple's App Store. Visit to download or for additional information visit
