Enjoy Learning World Map Puzzle
By Digital Gene
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is an educational game that allows you to learn the world map as if you play a jigsaw puzzle.
This game is designed to be simple yet fun to play. Not only people who like the world map, but also who are not good at geography can enjoy playing it.
The app is best suited for people who want to learn the world map or students who want to get ready for the exams. Or why don't you try this game to stay sharp during your spare time?
You can improve your knowledge as you play the game aiming for the best time or compete against players from all over the world.
You can also collect picture panels when you satisfy certain conditions. So do your best to get all of them.
For players who are not confident enough to test their knowledge about the whole countries of the world, the game also features the [Quick] mode that gives you questions from 20 random countries in the world, the [Area] mode that contains questions based on areas like Europe and Asia, and the [Selection] mode that allows you to choose the field you are interested in such as "the world's leading soccer countries" or "Major tourist destinations from Japan".
The [World] mode, which can test your knowledge about the whole countries of the world, also contains the Expert mode that doesn't show the border of the countries. Challenge yourself if you have a very good knowledge of geography.
When you're stuck on finding the location of a country, use the [Assist] function. It will help you to navigate the correct location without hassling yourself.
However you will be added a 30 seconds penalty when you use the [assist] function. If you want to achieve a higher ranking, it'd better not to use this function.
(*) Some countries are omitted from the game for the sake of expediency. Countries are also expressed in the simplified writing or alias.
The country names and borders used in this game are based on the information as at May 2012.
[New modes Master and Maniac]
In response to various requests to include all countries, we have added the new Master and Maniac modes which include countries that were omitted previously because the puzzle pieces were too small.
(*) Even for regions that claim autonomy as countries, only pieces with 10 or more approved countries will be registered as a country.
(*) The number of countries in the Master and Maniac modes may change in future.
(*) Due to the characteristics of the puzzle, countries whose areas are too small may not be included in modes other than the Master and Maniac modes.

Easy & Fun Way to Learn & Review
Amazing how quickly I was able to grasp and retain all of the countries and their locations. With all of the world news or even a trivia game I have a bit more insight of actually knowing, literally, where in the world they are talking about.
I love geography and have been looking for a game like this for years. When I mastered the game in English settings, I then switched the language so I had to place the countries without seeing their names. Made it even more fun! Please add more challenges.
Fun way to learn geography
I like jig saw puzzles. Now instead of just frittering off time, I am finally getting most countries at least in the correct general area. If I keep using this, I actually think I will have a good knowledge of geography.
