Stack the States® 2

Age Level: Ages 8-12
By Developer: Freecloud Design, Inc.

If you like Stack the States, you are in for a real treat with Stack the States 2! I absolutely loved it!
The main game, in which a player correctly answers geographical questions, is awarded states to then stack up to a line (hopefully without loosing them due to unbalance), where upon the game is won and your own personal map of the US receives a bright and shiny new state - is still the same. BUT, new questions! And a new 3-D look with superb audio, with new swanky animated backgrounds. It's spectacular! I especially like the birds flying around and the sound of my earned state sliding off my stack with a “kerplunk” into the water, as I yell out, “Oh no!”. It's a blast to play.

As you earn points, new games are unlocked. They are:

MAP IT! - This game gives you a blank map of the US and presents you with a state. Tap on the correct part of the US and you keep playing, or as long as you can. Three strikes and you are out! But, you can play as many times as you want and improve along the way.

CONNECT 2 – The player receives 2 states which connect. Move them around and correctly connect them. You have 60 seconds to connect as many states as you can!

CAPITOL TAP – In this game the player is to choose the correct capitol, from a choice of four. Following this, you are asked to tap the correct location where the capitol sits. It's a “two-fer one”. The game will show you the correct location, as well as a pin of where you tapped, should you get the location wrong. I definitely found myself getting better at this. Get 2 points for choosing the correct capitol on the first try and 1 point on the second. Plus, earn 2 more points for tapping the exact location of each capitol and 1 point for being close. Three strikes and you are out! Again, play as much as you want and improve while having fun.

PLUS, there is an interactive map. Tap on a state and see it's major cities, landmarks and 3-D elevation. Over 90 3-D landmarks in all!

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
