Really well designed!
I have a couple of these geography game apps - and this is the best one. I like the options and different game modes. As well as the cheat ability to superimpose country names. Very good way to familiarize yourself with the map to get started. And most importantly, it allows you to zoom in and look at the answers after you get a question wrong. Important for learning from your mistakes. If I were going to request any additional features, it would be for more cities and game modes. There's tons already - but the more the better! :)
Disapointed and Bored
Geography is one of my strong suits, and I had a hard time playing this game. The maps lack detail. Placing the pin where you want it is tough. Never could put my pin in the exact right spot. No matter how hard I tried. Then asks to locate a place like Cordoba. Piece of cake right? I put my pin in the location for the famous one in Spain. It wanted a Cordoba somewere in South America. It just asked for Cordoba. Nothing else. How do you know which one, until you get it wrong?What really burned me on this game, is no matter what, I could not get the pin in any exact location. I said the heck with it and deleated it off my iPod less than 48 hours after buying it.
Great game, I like it
Of all those little games I purchased, it is on of the few one I still have on my iPhone, and from time to time I still enjoy playing it. In the mean time my kids found it and even they are playing it, especially during car travel, may be because then these see all those road signs with city names on them (Chicago 243 miles) ...
