A nice educational app for increasing the kids world knowledge.
MapMaster – Geography Game is an educational app for pupils and grownups. The app will train and increase the kids world knowledge concerning geography, especially capitals, countries and famous places of interest. The game's principle is easy: one will be asked to place pins on a virtual map. The app will tell you one capital or place of interest to place the pin. One will get points, more or less depending on the closeness to the correct spot. In addition to that, you will get extra points if you have placed the pin in a target zone. The app offers two modes to play: 1. Challenge or 2. Custom game. Challenge is differed into three levels of difficulty: easy, medium and hard. One can choose a category to play, f.e. Asian or European capitals. Custom offers diverse options to set. One can play with up to 9 friends, select diverse time limits (5 seconds up to 35 seconds, or no time limit), change the number of rounds which will be played (3 - 20) or the target zone size ( 200 - 1000km). Further one can turn off the target help (country borders will be vanished) and the category to play (which places or countries should be included). When one has completed a game, there is the opportunity to visit the asked places - therefore one needs to pull on the device's internet connection because you will be conducted to a website. Unfortunately, the app can be linked to openfeint. It freezed for some seconds while scrolling to choose a category.
