We're pleased to announce the release of GeoSeeker USA HD, a brand-new iOS and Android puzzle game that teaches locations, capitals, flags, landmarks, fascinating facts and more for all 50 U.S. states. Already a top 100 iPad board game, GeoSeeker USA HD combines seek-and-find gameplay with deep educational content to provide a fun way for learners of all ages to quickly improve their geographic knowledge of the United States.

The app is divided into four sections, starting with the Map Room, which features colorful maps of the U.S. that challenge the user to find the states using different identifiers, such as shape or nickname. In the Tour Guide section, users are introduced to famous landmarks across the U.S.A., each accompanied by interesting facts. The landmarks include natural destinations such as the Grand Canyon in Arizona; historic sites such as the Great Serpent Mound in Ohio; and also cultural landmarks such as the Pineapple Fountain in South Carolina. More interesting trivia and history is included in the Fun Facts section, which features additional tidbits covering U.S. history, culture and state symbols. Finally, the Geography Whiz section provides an opportunity to practice general map-reading skills such as reading legends and grids.

As a publisher and developer, Selectsoft has long been interested in providing games and apps that combine educational and entertainment value, and GeoSeeker is part of that effort to make learning both accessible and fun. According to the results of an online nationwide survey recently released by the American Geographic Society, Americans value geographic knowledge and skills for all ages and education levels, but American geography aptitude remains poor. The federal test known as the Nation’s Report Card showed in 2011 that less than one-third of elementary and high school students are proficient in geography. As classroom time for geography and history declines, and GPS use displaces basic map-reading skills, the need for geography practice and learning outside school becomes even more important. GeoSeeker provides a means to use mobile technology to teach both general map skills and specific geographic knowledge in an entertaining way.
