[prMac.com] Derby, United Kingdom - Funky Circuit have announced the release of Inquisition Earth! (Geography Map Quiz) on the App Store. In this covertly educational game the user is put in charge of a good natured alien invasion - taking over the planet Earth one territory at a time, conquering the original brown urban blight to reveal a beautiful green luscious planet.
The game features an interactive map of the world with all territories, borders and capital city locations. Only territories that neighbour already captured ones can be "attacked". Each "attack" battle consists of three questions - name the country, its capital city and point out the national flag. User's army for the battle depends on the accuracy and speed of their answers. As the campaign progresses the user has to defend their captured territories by fighting "defend" battles - these feature three additional types of questions: population, currency & official language.
No typing is required. Multiple choice questions only. Answers are intelligently selected by carefully crafted algorithms based on geographical and linguistic proximity to the correct answer. No trick answers. No fake answers. The goal is for the user to learn while having fun.
