Hi all!

Mapster is a geographic quiz game. You are given a map, and asked to find locations of various places. The more accurate you will be - the more points you will earn. If you break 10 000 points with first 10 places - you go to next level, and the game becomes a bit more challenging You can submit your score to leaderboards (ScoreLoop) and compete with friends and others.

With this app you can learn amazingly fast, while enjoying it

There are 13 maps available, each with its own levels, places and leaderboards. Together, it's over 1800 places to guess and learn.

The app is free, no in-game payments, no premium versions. Enjoy

I'll be very happy if you check it out, play it (and fill leaderboards with your results! ), and give me some feedback

Google Play Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...studio.mapster

Why does this app need access to phone calls?

No needs to worry

You probably noticed that many apps needs this permission. In fact, it has nothing to do with your phone calls. You can read more here, for example: http://www.womenwithdroids.com/2011/...-and-identity/

This permission is used mainly because all ad networks need it to show more proper ads. Mapster displays ads (but really few, and not annoying I hope)

Feel safe and enjoy the game Today there will be an update, with some fixes, and new languages introduced (thanks to XDA community by the way)

thx for the excellent game..

for the "local names" setting, it seems to be not much different from English..
(at least for my native language Chinese, the setting only changes the display to Chinese Pinyin, which is just a romanised way of expressing..)

if u plan for doing translations, i can help with Chinese..

I'm glad that you like it!

Sure, if you'd like to, would be great Here's the translation project: http://www.getlocalization.com/Mapster

If there's a Chinese translation of game sentences, I'll take care of Chinese spelling of cities also

Really need the option to turn the sounds off. Also, being able to zoom in on the map would be helpful. Off to a great start though

EDIT: Why does the leaderboard need my email address?

Thanks

Yes, it would be nice also. For now, I focus on the city quiz only, but as the game gains some more popularity, I'd like to include other geo quizzes in it also, to make something like ultimate geographic quiz app

If you connect your ScoreLoop account with your email address, you can use this account later on other device (mainly while moving to new phone) and not lose your old results

Yes, the mute button is needed, and it will appear soon

I would like to suggest to change Washington to Washington DC for the North America Map. I had picked the State of Washington and got it incorrect.
Also, I think one of the cities was San Jose. San Jose is a city in both California and Costa Rica.
