Hit the gas and head out on the highway in the fact-packed game that turns textbook geography into an exciting cross-country adventure for the entire family. Answer challenging questions to unlock the airports and fuel stations you need to win. Or take a chance on a bonus delivery and earn the cash to upgrade your ride. But whatever you do, keep one eye on your fuel, because the bottom of the tank means the end of the road in the awesome cross-country adventure from the makers of Operation Math.
HAVE FUN LEARNING:
• The shapes, capitals, nicknames, postal abbreviations, flags, key symbols and more for all 50 U.S. states.
• National rivers, mountains, parks and time zones, important trails and railroads, and major U.S. cities and attractions
* Important landmarks, movements and key moments in US history.
* Trophies and upgradable cars that motivate game play.
• Engaging game play that makes social studies fun and helps kids prepare for a pop quiz or test.
• The ability to track and score three different players.
• A fun, game-based newspaper with headlines that change to recognize player achievements.
• A visitor center packed with 50 state brochures and maps that encourage learning.
• 600 state and national geography questions.
BONUS GAMES: Visit the state fair to take the State Capital and State Shape challenges. Or fly to Hawaii and try your hand at the Honolulu State Spelling Bee. Geography Drive comes with four bonus games included.
VISITOR CENTER: Drop by the Visitor Center in between games to brush up on your state facts or check out a large collection of national and regional maps. Here, you'll find everything you need to know to improve your performance on the road, including the following facts for every state:
• State capital

TROPHIES AND HEADLINES: There are over 16 different trophies waiting to be claimed and displayed in your personal trophy case. And the biggest achievements are recognized in the Geography Drive Newspaper for all other players to see.

Geography Drive can keep track of three different players, and each one can customize their garage sign for free, with color, type and fun logos.
BEYOND THE STATES: In addition to 500 state trivia questions, there are 100 national geography questions designed to test your knowledge of rivers, oceans, time zones, major cities, landmarks, major geographic regions and more.

Great for kids and parents
I was looking for a geography app for my 7 year old and came across Geography Drive. The graphics were great and the game-style learning looked right up my son's alley and I was right.
He loves playing this "game" and is learning a lot along the way. The big surprise is how much I enjoy playing and how much I have learned.
This is what an educational app should be like. We are so glad that we discovered Spinlight Studios and all their apps.
Love this game
This game is great and one the entire family can enjoy and learn from all at the same time. We are racing to see who will clear all 50 states first. :)
I would give 5 stars if the game would stop kicking us off after playing for extended periods and now anytime we've cleared more than 40 states. It's very frustrating and after paying for this app I expect it to let us complete our games. If this gets fixed I'll give it 5 stars.
We are running on an iPad. Can somebody please help with this matter?
Loaded with Trivia
I love the way this game is executed. It is loaded with lots of fun facts about the states. My 8 year old son was determined to beat the game and it took him a week or two. The game has mini games that you play to get gas and it also has an information center so you can learn about the states.
