Lots of fun- lots of empty roads.
Seriously I never realized how much of the world is bare blank empty roads lined with various shades of green and brown. So yeah you can tap for a looong time before you find a clue. But once you get that little bit of information- a language, a highway number, a road sign- then it gets addicting. If you land in rural Russia and don’t read the language then yeah you’re done for. There a tendency to repeat certain places a lot... Russia, Canada, Brazil... it’s almost as if they’re enormous countries or something. But one time the game put me in a small Canadian town in front of a building with a Canadian flag and a map of the town! Ya just never know.
One thing I would like is some indication of how far you’ve traveled from your previous location. After tapping my way through Alaskan wilderness for awhile Ive likely lost track of distance and have no idea where I am in relation to the original drop point.
Pretty good, but. . . .
More variety in locations is needed. When playing the "World" map, you end up in a Scandinavian country (often Sweden), Brazil, or Russia with disproportionate frequency. I have lost count of the number of times I have been in Brazil. The same is true for the "Major Cities" map, just add Tokyo and some city in Mexico to the mix. I have not played the other maps, so I do not know how they compare. Location issues aside, I really enjoy the game. It is fun to see different places around the world and decipher where you are from clues such as road signs, website addresses, languages on signs. Overall I recommend getting this game. It is even worth spending a few dollars to play additional maps.
Geoguessr - lots of fun
Elegant concept: you are placed somewhere in the world in Google Streetview, and need to figure out where you are. You set the rules and the time limit, or can play competitively. If you’re just competing against yourself, you can set the rules: for example, do you just go by the general look of your surroundings, or limit yourself to evident languages and street signs, or ask for help from old Professor Google? Your call.
There are multiple games within the game, corresponding to countries or cities. However, you need to earn your way into these by racking up points. You start out with a general “The World” game, which is fairly hard. Lots of country roads in the middle of nowhere. It’s worth it to “unlock” additional games, using the points you’ve earned.
Warning: it’s addictive!
