The game could be played by one or two players and there were three different game modes:
- Viewer (for casual fans)
- Geek (for hardcore Dwarfers)
- General Knowledge (which was aimed at those unfamiliar with Red Dwarf but able to observe clips and photos)
- Drive Room
- Original sleeping quarters
- Science lab
- The Tank
- Officer's quarters
- Observation Dome
- Captain's office
The questions were of many different types, selected at random.
- Clips - A short excerpt from either an episode or Smeg Up followed by a question about it
- Music - A music cue for which the player had to identify the episode
- Picture - Identify the distorted character or episode from which the picture had come
- Scene order - The player is shown 4 screenshots from an episode and asked to place them in the correct order
- Multiple choice - Standard questions with 4 possible answers
After each question Holly tells the player if they were right or wrong. He or she has as many different responses as costumes.
If the player scored a perfect 6 for rounds 1, 3, 5, or 7 they would be given a 4-digit code that could be used to unlock 4 different mini-games in the main menu. If a Geek player got all 48 questions right they were asked an additional 2 questions for a potential score of 50. If this was acheived then another mini-game was unlocked.
Behind the scenesEdit
The game was made by 2 Entertain and Grant Naylor Productions and released as a BBC DVD. The questions were written by Thequizbiz interactive Ltd. It was released in 2006 and featured questions and material from the first 8 series.
Also included in the DVD case was a leaflet that led the buyer to an online competition called Geek Chase. This was a series of websites that left clues for players to follow to win a prize.
