WHY YOU WILL LOVE MAPTASTIC:
You will be amazed at how quickly you can master US geography with MapTastic, even if you start out as a complete US geography dunce. By touching a real map and racing to compete for a high score, you will use muscle memory to learn your geography more quickly and thoroughly than through a book or a quiz.
MapTastic was made by a gamer to give you a polished experience that strikes just the right combination of fun and educational value.
MapTastic has excellent feel and feedback. Watch a different intensity of firework and hear a different sound based on how quickly you tapped each state. Learn as you go by seeing the names of the correct state and state you tapped when you miss an answer. And don't worry about tapping the small eastern states - MapTastic's detailed and intelligent hit detection will make sure you don't miss any answers unfairly.
MapTastic always gives you something to work up to. Complete a challenge by answering all questions before time runs out, then master it by earning a five star rating, then conquer it by getting a world class high score.
MapTastic teaches major cities, not just states and capitals. By learning only states and capitals, you will miss out on major cities like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, Miami, and many more.
The Cities and Mixed game modes are especially challenging and educational. You will need to remember not just which state a city belongs to, but where in the state the city is located.

Ratings and Reviews
Great fun to improve your learning speed!
Now I have changed from being a US geography dunce to becoming a US geography expert – thanks to this highly effective, interactive learning experience. My incorrect answers are less frequent with the help of straightforward corrections. It is so much fun switching between learning and gaming and getting faster and faster. There is no fussy design or action to distract me from reaching my goals. I love the simple menu system, choices of modes, and the realistic physical US map. There is no limit to improve and I am still improving my speed and find the mixed game mode most challenging. This is one of the best educational US geography games, solid and clear, also very good for brain training.
Snappy, challenging, and addictive
Great gameplay. The simple and smart menu system allows effortless switching between learning and gaming, selecting a game mode, pausing, continuing, restarting, or aborting a game, and viewing local and Game Center scores. It helped me to quickly get the hang of it and enter the challenging leaderboards competition. Best of all, repeated play hones my alertness, concentration, and responsiveness.
Challenging but fun
This game is difficult, but in a fair and effective way. When I started I was barely getting anything right, but I quickly got faster and better. Now I know my US geography inside out, can beat the game any time, and am working on moving up the leaderboards.
