What's New in Version 1.3
As a "map freak" I was very excited about this game. And the initial gameplay of locating the sites is fun and challenging. The frustration and reason for only 2 stars is the *exact* precision needed to get points for finding the place. It's not like other pinpoint games where you find the location on a static map--for this game you must zoom in/out to the EXACT level the initial picture is taken at that you are trying to find. Despite easily locating The Palms in Dubai I spent 20 minutes minutely zooming in and out trying to measure this edge of beach with this part of the screen--to no avail!! I have only got an exact match on ONE out of at least 7 locations! There has got to be a better way--drop a pin, circle it, something. By the time you've wasted minutes upon minutes repeatedly moving and zooming incrementally to exactly reproduce the initial image, you've got zilch for points!!! I hope an update comes soon cause the frustration at the end ruins the rest of what could be a very fun game!!!!
Geography buffs only!
I think it's a great game for those who are into geography. I'm simply not smart enough...
