Capital Challenger presents a unique way to learn about Capital Cities. It is suitable for both children and adults.
Letters in a capital name are randomly shuffled. For example “ROME” could be presented as “MERO”. The player is asked to rearrange the letters correctly. Simply touch a letter and drag it to the proper spot. There is also a “HINT” button for a little help. For example, in the above case, the hint could be “Capital of Italy”. For additional help, one can ask for a second hint. In the above case, the second hint could be “The first letter starts with R”.
In order to achieve a unique experience at each play, random algorithms are applied to both the Capital City name selection and the ordering of the letters in the name.
The game is timed. The faster one answers, the more the points earned. Also if one uses hints, one gets less points.
So to maximize points earned, one needs to solve the puzzles as quickly as possible with as few hints as possible.
Instant feedback is given and the correct answer is always displayed before moving on to the next puzzle.
A graphical display bar continuously updates to show the time left.
The top scores are archived for future review and comparison.
Just shake the device, to reset all timers and scores.
It is also possible to practice the game at a relaxed pace by turning the timer off.
The App is embedded with sounds and animations in an attempt to keep the user a little more engaged and alert. If desired, the audio can be switched off.
