Worldly: a quick-fire quiz game about our planet

Worldly Screenshot Worldly Screenshot Worldly Screenshot

Today Supergonk, an independent video game development studio, is pleased to announce the release of Worldly, a fun new mobile quiz game about our planet and its cultures. The game is available exclusively on Windows Phone platforms, and can be downloaded worldwide, for free, on the Windows Phone Store with immediate effect.

Worldly takes players on an adventure of discovery, as they join famous explorer Sir Maxwell Worldly in an unforgettable journey in his hot air balloon. How much do you know about our planet, its countries, and the people who live on it? Could you find Angola on a map? Do you know the flag of Indonesia? Which currency is used in Brazil? Where is the Laptev Sea? Join Sir Maxwell and find out, as you traverse the globe in a fun adventure!

According to National Geographic, young people today are falling behind in their geographic literacy rates. A recent survey by National Geographic Education found that “only 37% of young Americans can find Iraq on a map”, and less than half know where New York City is located. Worldly aims to tackle this issue head on, featuring 12 mini-games that are each designed to teach a different area of geographic knowledge. Worldly is available in six languages, and we hope the game will have a serious impact on improving awareness and enjoyment of learning about our planet.

QRCodeThe development team behind Worldly previously created the hugely successful quiz app Capitals Quizzer; the number 1 educational app in over 50 countries. Capitals Quizzer has been played over 18 million times by gamers all over the world, demonstrating a massive public interest in the geography quiz niche. Worldly continues this theme, moving forward with drastically improved gameplay, graphics and audio.

Meet the improved gMaps 3.0!

Hey!

No panic! gMaps is in the store and it was there all the time. The only issue we’ve faced with is the Search didn’t want to find our app. But now it is searchable again! So, please find and download if you have no gMaps app in your collection for now.

And this is not the only good news for you today.

We’ve made a really great work for such a little time and now you can find gMaps v3.0 in the Store! And, as you could already guess, this version is not without improvements.

Interesting? So, let me show you…

search-option search-screen

Not only Search in the Store is improved, but gMaps Search feature has also got its update. Now it even looks different. The new Search is performed on a separate screen, where you can see a list of proposed locations by first entering letters and you just have to tap on the suitable place in the list and it would be shown on the map immediately. By the way, the history of all your searches are saved too and shown to you with the next opening the Search screen.

routeOne more interesting and really useful feature for you is Building a Route.

This feature now is also in separate screen, where you can write manual places you wanted to start/finish with. When points will be entered the list of available variants of routes will appear. There you can also choose the travel mode. By the way, some routes by bicycle and on foot will be shown with warning and it will mean that some routes could be missing or changed because it is really difficult to track all changes of small routes. And you just have to tap on the suitable variant from the list and the route will be built on the map. And don’t worry, all of variants that you’ve seen in the list now is available for you in the top of the screen. You just need to swipe there and the route will be changed immediately. But if you don’t want any of routes appear on the map you can just tap the Back button and the screen will be closed without building anything on the map.

directions-optionNow you can not only build a route from A to B, you can put as much as 7 points. You can also set restrictions there and all available roads will be shown on the Directions screen, you just have to tap on the most suitable variant for you and the route will be displayed on the map.

There is also a quick way to access directions dialog from search dialog if you mistakenly pressed wrong button. Just follow blue/white “directions icon” and it will lead you to the directions dialog.

gmaps-drive

Another helpful feature is activation of third-partyapplications. This feature allows you to open some app you like for its drive mode, or which you’ve always used in the car. To activate drive mode feature you just have to build a route at first and then tap on the Car icon in the right upper corner or tap on the arrow which is show your current position. For this moment this feature is available only on the Pro version of gMaps 3.0, but soon it will be in the free version too.
