I wanted to get on and refute some of the reviews I've read. This was a fun geography-puzzle game, and I highly recommend it.
The puzzle pieces and maps are topographical - you can see mountain ranges, deserts, oceans, etc, so it's a good geography game in more ways than one. The map graphics are pretty to look at.
The game starts with you picking your map (USA or Europe) and goal (state/country or capital).
The game's movement is a bit tricky at first, which may be the reason for the bad reviews left by others. For this example, let's say I picked USA states as my geography puzzle. I'm shown a topographical map of North America, with the USA whited out. I can see part of Canada, Mexico, and the oceans. On the right of the screen two states and state names are shown, maybe North Carolina and Colorado. I know where to put North Carolina because of it's unique shape in relation to the coastline. When I move to drag it to to it's spot on the map, the interface changes slightly so that my finger is below and to the left of the state: I can see where to put it without my finger getting in the way. I move North Carolina to it's correct spot, and it pops into place; a positive chime sounds. Another state pops into the window to the right, let's say Nebraska. I know *about* where both NE and CO are, but I don't have enough geological references to get them placed perfectly. I pick Colorado, and drag it to where I think it should go. Negative chime: I got confused and tried to put it in Kansas' place. But Colorado slides into it's proper place by itself, so I can track where it goes and learn where to put it next time. On the final score, I'd get a point for NC but not for CO.
The puzzle worked perfectly and seamlessly. The map was not fuzzy. When I put the states where they belonged, I got a positive chime. It's easy to place small states, like Rhode Island, Delaware, etc. (Not so easy to place "Vatican City" on the European map -- it's a bit too small, unless you're spot-on on your geography!)
When you're playing with state capitols, you don't have to be spot on: you get the point as long as you put Sacramento *somewhere* in California.
This is a fabulous geography game. Better than average because of it's easy-to-use interface and the topographical features (most puzzle-games use flat colors to differentiate the state shapes, not their geographical features).
