[prMac.com] Lausanne, Switzerland - Announcing that Hades Solutions, the developer of GeoPuzzles, has just released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. GeoPuzzles 1.1 offers users a fun and challenging puzzle while teaching them about world geography. The app is more than just a simple slider puzzle game. It includes fun animations and sounds, the ability to add additional players, and it can be played and viewed as a Google map or satellite image.
GeoPuzzles 1.1 Features Include:
* Based on Google Maps
* Fun and easy to play
* Shake to shuffle
* Choose from map or satellite view
* Fun animations
* Add multiple players
To play the game, users simply choose a map and shake their device. The app relies on the device's accelerometer to sense the motion and scramble the map into randomly placed puzzle pieces. Players must reassemble the map by sliding all pieces back into the correct positions.
Help is available via a "Hint" button and a "View Original Map" button. These are valuable features for beginners, as this game is timed, and hints can help new players finish more quickly. Users also have the option of reloading old games, so they can improve their scores before moving on to a new puzzle. Scores are saved, so users can challenge their friends to beat their best score. A separate screen is provided to add additional players, whose scores are tracked and saved as well.
This app is handy for anyone who likes to travel and wants to learn about the geography of a country before they visit. It's also a great educational tool for students who struggle with geography. It presents a fun, challenging exercise that can help children retain information more readily than they might by simply reading a text book.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.2 or later
* 23.9 MB
