Description

Geo Challenge is a Facebook game in which the player is tested on geographic knowledge in a playful manner.

There's four mini games the player has to play in order to earn a high score.

In the first mini game the player is shown the name of a country or dependency and six suitcases with a flag print on them. The player must select the correct flag print that corresponds with the given country. If the player waits incorrect suitcases will be removed. But there's a global time limit for the mini-game, so waiting too long might mean that the player keeps his "chain" of correct answers, but limits the number of questions.

The second mini game shows the player the outline of country. The player must choose from four country names which is the correct answer. Here too the player can wait, but instead of incorrect answers disappearing the surrounding countries become visible. Like the other mini game there's a time limit and the player gains bonus points for chains of correct answers.

The third and fourth mini games are very similar. They require the player to put pins into a world map. The third mini game gives names of major cities around the world that have to be located the fourth game gives pictures of famous landmarks from all around the world. The closer to the actual location the pin in placed the more points are gained.

In the end all points are added together and the player receives a title based on the amount of points. Points can be compared with Facebook friends that also play the game. The game makes lists for each week, month and all-time.

The free version of the game only has the world tour. Paying users can also do the European and US tours which focus on those particular regions.
