Where in the World - Map Games

Map games can be a lot of fun to play. They can also be a lot of fun to make. The following three interactive map games are all fun to play. They are also all on GitHub. This means that each of these games is easy to clone and adapt if you want to create your own map based geography game.

In this Mapbox based game you are shown different cities around the world. All you have to do is select the correct name for the city from a choice of four. If you guess correctly then you progress to the next round. Each city shown is more difficult than the last. The object of the game is to name as many cities as you can. The game finishes as soon as you guess a city wrongly.
