Hot on the heels of its first original mobile IP, Sony Pictures TV launched another mobile game last week, Sports Jeopardy. The sports trivia game uses Jeopardy's branding and quiz show style to challenge players with thousands of sports-related questions. It is available now on iOS and Android via Google Play and the Amazon App Store.

Sports Jeopardy includes a leaderboard-enabled leveling system with challenges and achievements as well as turn-based online and local multiplayer modes. To spice up the traditional Jeopardy formula, the game also features power-ups like Time Out to add more time to the clock for answers and Double Down, which provides another Daily Double bonus on a tile on the board. The game is 99 cents with the option of additional in-game purchases, and also uses in-game coins for unlockable jerseys, podiums and avatar accessories.
