When did you decide to develop this app?
We are big fans of travel and geography at home. It has been fun, taking cross country road trips. We have wanted to build a geography game for a very long time. That’s how we decided to create State Bingo and Road Trip US.
We spent a lot of time prototyping on paper, making cardboard games and flushing out the idea before coding the game. It took us almost 6 months to develop the app.
What is your favourite page in the app?
My favorite page in the app is the beautifully illustrated map of the US. I enjoy looking for answer clues on the map. The unique topography and artifacts of each state depicted really draw me towards the map.
Great fun app for teaching children American geography and interesting information about the States. You have a choice of 2 games. State Bingo and Road Trip U.S., then My Statehoods
State Bingo – based on the traditional game of bingo. You have a choice of Easy, Medium or Hard and the game begins. You are presented with range of questions from unscrambling letters, geography, etc. which you have to answer. Once you get 4 correct in a line that is either horizontal, vertical or diagonal you win.
Road Trip US – you have a choice of Easy, Medium or Hard questions again. Then you get to pick a road trip Eastbound, Westbound, Lewis and Clark Trail (Illionis to Oregon), Oregon Trail (Missouri to Oregon) or the Pony Express Trail (Missouri to California). This was so much fun, getting to pick which state to go to next. I can imagine many children wanting to go on a real adventure with this app.
A few things I loved about this app was the amount of content, great information which is taught in a really fun way. Also, if you make a mistake it was done gently, a sad look on the cars face and the sound of a deflating tyre for the Road Trip or a simple sound and a ‘x’ if you got the answer wrong for the State Bingo, you then select again for another question. The music is just great, so fun and uplifting.
If you are looking for an app about US geography and US state information, that is both educational & fun, this is a must have app in your collection
We have a giveaway for this app until December 23, 2012 –> a Rafflecopter giveaway
