Could be better!
This game is sort of fun, but it could be better and a lot more educational. First of all, I wish you could choose a continent at a time to work on instead of every country at once. Maybe have different levels by having learned countries on several continents. You can't learn without seeing some repetition of info you don't know. Second, I think you should flash a picture of the country in its location on whatever continent so you can see the big picture and build on the information in your head. I am amazed at the number of countries that have renamed and brown into smaller countries since I studied geography in school and I am a teacher. Help us learn, please!
Pretty Satisfactory with Several Negative Issues
This app is pretty good educationally, but there is a lot of inaccurate information about different countries. If you actually even read the reviews anymore and take the time, I would like you to do that. Another thing is that the maps for the continents have extremely distorted sizes. For example, for North America, you make Canada look 5 times bigger than the United States when it is really about the same size. Same problems with Europe and Asia. This can mislead others about the sized of nations. I'm pretty sure you do not even bother reading reviews anymore, but if you review mine, please fix the many flaws in this app.
If u fix this I would be happy but... 1. Please make Russia bigger. It is the largest country in the world but on this it is smaller than Indonesia. 2. Please add more countries like Vatican City and Western Sahara. 3. Russia and Turkey are in two continents so I would appreciate it if you put them on both. 4. My game likes to glitch and not give me the next question. This gets on my nerves because when I am very close to winning, I have to start over and play again. Plz fix this and I will give the game 5 stars.
