Backpacker is a game about travelling around the world. The objective is to travel around the world as fast as possible, to visit as many cities as possible or to get a certification for as many jobs as possible.

For every city you come to, you will need more money for the next flight ticket. There are two ways to get money. One is to call home and ask for help from your family, but the usual way is to get a job. Before you can start searching for a job you must find a hotel to live in. When checking in at the hotel you will get questions about the city that you are in. The result of these will be used when searching for work. Answers for these questions can be found by visiting sights. When you have got a job you will get questions about that job. You will get more money if you answer the questions right.
