Gameplay

GeoGuessr Review
Guess the location via Google!

Unfortunately, GeoGuessr doesn’t have a tutorial so it’s easy to become a little lost about what to do when you first enter the game. The aim of the game is to guess certain locations from Google Earth at random. This is a great concept if you know a lot about Geography, as for me, I did pretty terribly.

Graphics

GeoGuessr Review
The graphics are pretty simplistic!

As this game uses real-life images, it’s difficult to comment on the graphics. But it looks great visually and follows a simplistic design.

Music & Sounds

GeoGuessr is mostly mute apart from when you’re tapping on a button. Usually, this would annoy me, but I think it works well with this game as it requires a lot of information. I think adding music would add a distraction.

Controls

GeoGuessr Review
Swipe to control!

To control, swipe across the screen, this way you can explore the area and zoom in on any signs that might help you. To pin the location, press the location marker and then where on the map you think the area is.

The Verdict

GeoGuessr Review
What did you think?!

This is definitely a game I’ve never seen before in terms of its gameplay, however, it’s definitely not a game every casual gamer will like. To play this game successfully, you either need to have good Geographical skills or a good memory. As I possess neither, I found it difficult to play but I enjoyed the concept.
