Hushang is a multi-player game in which one user competes against another during two rounds of timed multiple-choice questions of various topics.
Hushang[ or Hōshang (in Persian: هوشنگ), older Persian Hōšang, was the second Shāh to rule the world according to Ferdowsi's Shāhnāma. Hushang is based upon the legendary figure Haošyaŋha in the ancient Zoroastrian scripture of the Avesta.
In the epic poem of the Shāhnāma, Hushang was the son of Siyāmak and grandson of Keyumars. He led the army against the son of Ahriman that avenged the death of Siyāmak. After the death of Keyumars, Hushang became king of the human race. During Hushang's reign, many new discoveries were made for the comfort of humanity.
