Love the popular television game show Family Feud? Then check out the iPhone version of the game.

Start by creating an avatar – you can select hairstyle, mood and wardrobe. There is single-player and party mode, so you can use the app solo or with others.

Then it’s time to begin. The iPhone game matches the television version exactly, down to the music. You will be prompted to answer a question like, “Name something that is fragile.”

You get several chances to throw out suggestions by typing on a keyboard that pops up along with a blank screen. You have about 20 seconds to type in a response.

The answers are then compared with answers listed on the board – china, glass, heart. If you match the answers on the board, you get points; if not, you’re left with nada. The object, of course, is to accumulate the most points in each round.

With each correct answer, your avatar and the other characters on the screen cheer and dance, just like they do on the show. And there is even a fast-money round, wherein, if you answer five questions for a total of 200 points, you win $20,000.

Now if only the money were real, too!
