Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Please try our new JigsawGeo instead of this app. The new app, called "JigsawGeo" (without any extensions) includes all previous maps as in-app purchases. We are maintaining the old apps for a short while to allow current customers to transition to the new app. The new JigsawGeo will recognize your existing JigsawGeo purchases and transfer them to the new game.
Puzzle game that is also a great way to learn geography. Finish fast enough to earn a high score. You can double-tap the target or drag & drop it into position. This is the only geography app that uses a full map database so that the map can be panned by dragging or zoomed in or out by pinching. Try a double-finger double-tap to zoom out to full map (handy to quickly back out after you zoomed in close to get one of the tiny regions). Both portrait and landscape can be used. Web-based high scores let you compete against your friends and other players from around the globe.
This is the complete atlas of the world, with over 200 countries and territories in total, from tiny Malta to Russia, China, and the United States of America. Our largest JigsawGeo game ever, and perhaps the most gorgeous map you have ever seen on a mobile device.
You can zoom in quite far -- we have provided an amazing amount of detail so that you can see tiny islands and peninsulas that many other map games do not provide.
Four levels of play:
+ Traveler: New easier level that slowly zooms in on the right spot
+ Surveyor: Place countries by name
+ Navigator: Place countries by name of their capital
+ Discoverer: Challenging! Place countries by their flag instead of the outline shape
Check all the Options - you can set your default name for the web high scores, choose your difficulty level, enable sounds, enable drag & drop, and set the finger offset (during drag&drop, you can have the country “jump” to the side so you can see it better).
Choose from two voices that say the name of each country or region as you play.
“High Scores” shows the top four times for each difficulty level. You can clear the local high scores here too. Local is just on your device. Global is the web-based high scores list from around the world!
Look for other JigsawGeo games for other regions. Just search for JigsawGeo in the app store.
Helps you get familiar fast
There are lots of levels, tons of room for improving, the sound helps with pronunciation and within hours I had come so far in my understanding of country groupings. The hardest to learn is the tiny islands, but even those start to become familiar in size and shape. Incredibly helpful.
Fun to play. In just a few games, I've improved my knowledge of where countries are. Easiest level is not necessarily the fastest, since the tracking is a little slow.
I tried to like this ap but too often when I tapped very clearly on the right spot I was told I was wrong. Also, it wrongly showed Brazzaville to be the capital of DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), which it is not.
