Author's Description: How well do you know Europe? is an educational game that tests your geographical knowledge of Europe.
You see a map of Europe with border lines, rivers, lakes, seas and topology (the altitude is shown by color, brown means mountain, green means plains) marked, but without cities and their names and get asked to find a city. Then you have to click on a point of the map where you think that that city is. Then a line is drawn where the city really is and how many kilometres the spot you clicked on would be away from it. After 10 asked cities the sum of kilometres is taken as a (locally saved)high-score entry -- the less kilometres away the better!
42 cities (mostly major cities, but not only)
locally saved Highscore system
possible future features:
online-saved global highscore

I am a programmer who started his "programming curriculum vitae" in C. One day our teacher found Allegro and showed it to us. I was fascinated because i only knew console programming and started experimenting in Allegro. And so i started "hobby game-programming"... (View Profile)
