TravelPod's Traveler IQ Challenge How Well Do You Know Your World - zlythern
TravelPod.com made a very nice game called Traveler IQ Challenge. It's about How Well Do You Know Your World.

This nice game is very easy to play, but hard to beat ;) You will be given a city name, and you have to click on the whereabout is the city's location.

Traveler IQ Challenge UI - zlythern
There are total of 12 Levels to complete. The interface is very simple to understand. Although there are some area you need to pay attention too ;)

  • The city name will appear on middle-top, with a background of red bar running across indicating the time left for you to click the city's location on the map. The red bar is synchronized with the Time left on the right (see the yellow arrow)
  • There are a minimum score requirement to advanced to the next level. You can see it on the upper right corner, titled Score to advance.
  • After you click on somewhere around the world, there'll be a Red Flag which indicate what you clicked. The correct area are shown with the Green Flag. And there's a detailed information of how far you clicked from the correct place, and how much time you need to dig all those Geography lessons back in elementary school :P And after several attempts, i got a You rock! Nice job :P
  • But then again, be aware, the time is still ticking ! You see the Next button there ? It has the same Red bar which is running. So, unless you hit the Pause button, after the time runs out, you'll be taken right to the next place. If you wanted to have some time remembering the place, feel free to hit the Pause button ;) Or, if you're a genius, hit the Next button immediately to bring you to another place :D
  • If you really really really care, then try to remember some description of the city in the very bottom of the map :P

And apparently i'm not even half way to beat the game :P Only 5 out of 12 :P

My score - zlythern
But this is considered "Pretty good! Someone paid attention during geography class. Your traveler IQ: 87". According to the game ;P

Another plus point for this game is that it allows you to embed it to any page ;) You can find the code here (on the bottom right below the game screen).

Also with the hype of Facebook thing, it's as easy as the game to add it to your profile page :) just click ;)
