Auralquiz – a simple music quiz game for GNU/Linux, using your own music files. It is based on Qt, Phonon and TagLib.

The game plays short pieces of music files from your folders (in Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, Opus or MP3 formats), and presents a question and several answers about the current song. The fastest the answer, the more points you receive.

Auralquiz analyzes the music files contained in selected folders, and creates a quiz about them, using the information stored in their tags (Title/Artist). It is important that the music files are correctly tagged.

In normal mode, the player is presented with a question and 4 buttons to answer. A small clip from one of the music files is played, and the player has a few seconds to answer by clicking the correct button, or pressing 1, 2, 3 or 4 in the keyboard.

In the highest difficulty level, instead of having the buttons, the player must type the answer. Symbols like “!”, “-“, “.” etc are filtered out, and it’s not case sensitive, so it’s a little easier to answer correctly.

Up to 8 people can play in a turn-based mode.

In the highest difficulty level there are no answer buttons, and instead, you have to type the answer yourself.

The last version of the application 1.0.0 was released in 2017.
