I like the idea of this, but: does it only have a multiple choice mode? I really don't like geography games that do that because it makes it much too easy. I wouldn't immediately have recognized Mexico from that screenshot, but if you gave me the choice between Mexico, Russia and Greece, Mexico would be the only option left, because I can see immediately that it's not Russia or Greece.

Hi Lena,
yes, we though a lot about the best possibility to let the player choose the result.

First idea: present a scroll view with all the nearly 200 countries. Problem: You have to scroll endless until you find the right solution. You could add the A-B-C-D... Shortcuts on the right, but also here you get overwhelmed about the amount of possible results and have to search for the result.

Second idea: present a textfield & keyboard to let the player type in the result (and present a list of countries after the first letter input). But Keyboards are imho not really "funny", not ideal for a game.

So we end up with a multiple choice solution... We think that's the best solution for most gamer.

Voice input a la siri would be ideal... I would like to implement it, if Apple makes a Siri-Interface available...

Oh, and if the game is too easy for you: Try the hard level. :-)

Border brain

I am enjoying Border Brain, but can't figure out how people score 400,000 plus in 10 attempts. Please advise.
