Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good, but. . . .
More variety in locations is needed. When playing the "World" map, you end up in a Scandinavian country (often Sweden), Brazil, or Russia with disproportionate frequency. I have lost count of the number of times I have been in Brazil. The same is true for the "Major Cities" map, just add Tokyo and some city in Mexico to the mix. I have not played the other maps, so I do not know how they compare. Location issues aside, I really enjoy the game. It is fun to see different places around the world and decipher where you are from clues such as road signs, website addresses, languages on signs. Overall I recommend getting this game. It is even worth spending a few dollars to play additional maps.
Good idea, needs work
An interesting idea, this is a moderately addictive game. It’s only marred by user interface problems, and the fact that it will occasionally crash when running in the background and cause me to lose hours of work. It desperately needs either a rework of the user interface, or pop-up confirmation dialogs for the return to initial location button and the green button in the lower right. Also, It would be nice to have it save games so that you could at least to recover a little of what you’ve done after it crashes. It would also be nice if you could control movement with a single tap instead of a double tap.
Edit: deleted game after the third time I got to picking the location on the last round and it exited the game and I lost all my progress. It seriously needs an “Are you sure?” function.
A few glitches in iOS 11, but still fun and educational
This game feels like a game I will be playing the rest of my life. It’s super addictive, but only because you start to get good at recognizing different places. It has even caused me to start analyzing roadsides in movies and TV shows!
My only reason for 4 stars is that sometimes there is a block of blurred images or blackness which persists in the same part of the field of view and never resolves, even when I move to different places on the map or . I’m not talking about the google maps blurring, which stay with the objects. You can’t force quit the app and then resume a game, so I don’t know how to get rid of it.
