Spinlight Studio has released their newest App, Geography Drive USA, and we love it!! No more boring maps and memorizing facts. Students will be delighted to learn about geography in a whole new, fun, exciting way. First go on a road trip in a sedan… with increasing money, earn a pickup. Ultimately, earn a racer in your choice of colors, courtesy of the Lincoln Garage or one of the other two garages available for a total of three players. These garages can be customized with your name, colors and logos.
You can keep track of accomplishments with your very own trophy case of over sixteen different trophies and the game based newspaper will keep track of player achievements. This would be great to take a picture and post in the classroom. We also loved the music, its great and reminiscent of earlier times.
The visitor’s center has each of the individual states and facts galore. Each state has three different questions to answer. To gain more fuel and money, visit the all-state pass for more questions that are read to the player. While this is appropriate for about fourth grade and above, I was surprised how much I enjoyed playing this game, trying to clear each of the states. There is more than one chance to try a state, with a wonderful variety of harder and easier questions. Questions cover current as well as historical events. Try the bonus games and traveling state fairs. Resetting the game is also an option for repeated game play. Spinlight developers are known for their wonderful apps and this one tops the list. Available for $4.99 in the App Store.
