JigsawGeo South America
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. 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.
Sure, perhaps you know where Brazil and Chile are. But can you find French Guiana or Suriname? 15 countries and territories in all. This map has fewer countries than some of the other continents (and many with very distinctive shapes), so it may be a good game for young children and Toddlers to start with.
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.
What's New in Version 3.4
+ double-finger double-tap to zoom out to full map
+ fix bug that was causing crashes when starting new game
Wonderful learning tool
The interplay of colored flags and the satisfaction of seeing a correctly identified country suddenly turn from white to a bold solid shape combine to keep the player's attention. I also like that there are different levels to try--and that I can always go back to review. Good work! Good game!
