About six months ago City Guesser 2.0 was released. The big news then was a switch from being based on street-level imagery to street-level video clips. Now City Guesser 3.0 is out and it still uses street-level video clips but now offers more games and more game modes than before.
City Guesser 3.0 is played just like the previous version of the game. Select a category (country, city, region, or landmarks) for your game then click “start guessing” when you’re ready to play. As soon as the game starts you will see street-level video footage of a place. You then have to guess where in the world that place is. You make your guesses by clicking on the map that pops up when click the “guess” button. How accurate or inaccurate your guess was is revealed to you as soon as you submit your guess. The accuracy of your guess is shown on the map with a marker for the actual location of the video clip compared to your guess.
City Guesser 3.0 offers twenty-one games based on countries. There are also more than two dozen games based on major cities around the world. And there is a game based on monuments of the world. In addition to the new games, City Guesser 3.0 has two new game play modes. There is a “streaks” mode in which you try to make as many consecutive accurate guesses as possible. There are also two new “challenge” modes. There is a challenge mode in which you cannot move the imagery and have to guess from just one view. The other challenge mode is a timed mode in which you have to guess before time runs out.
