Description

Globetrotter 2 is the second game in the Globetrotter series and a spiritual sequel of Backpacker. Once again the players' goal is to become President of the Globetrotter Club. They progress through ranks by visiting the 70 possible destinations all over the world, for each of which they have to complete the assignments of the Club, usually taking some pictures of famous landmarks.

The player also needs to answer trivia questions related to the history, culture or geography of their current location in order to earn money or points that they'll need for traveling by train, plane or ferry and for paying for their accommodations. Another way to earn money is taking different jobs, concretely a set of questions and challenges on a specific theme.

In addition to this, the player will also experience a few action mini-games, for instance a race through the Grand Canyon with a 4x4 vehicle.
