An educational game about famous landmarks found in the famous cities of the world, for students studying Geography from grade 5 onwards. This game uses 81 photos to show 27 landmarks from 3 different angles, with interesting facts about each one.
Students hear a landmark spoken and choose the matching photo. After six right in a row, Race Mode starts automatically. It asks questions at speed to test the students' memory and comprehension of the landmarks just covered, before continuing with new ones. At the end of the race, students can see how well they have done relative to their other races. The game gradually focuses on any landmarks that the students have difficulty recognizing, and speeds up as competence is gained.
By contrast to Race Mode, Story Mode slowly introduces new landmarks by saying them as the photos are shown, allowing students to quietly look, listen and learn.
The game is controlled by on-screen gestures which are simple to demonstrate and easy to use, and the game can be played without voice prompts.
