National Geographic Challenge comes with the imprimatur of one of the world s oldest and most respected scientific publications in a bid to make planetary exploration both educational and fun. On the video game side, the game was developed by Gusto Games (which put together John Daly?s ProStroke Golf, among others) which has managed to create a gaming experience that also makes use of the massive video and knowledge libraries of National Geographic magazine.
National Geographic Challenge features both single player and multiplayer Quiz games to test and grow the players knowledge of their world. It also comes with a competitive two-player Puzzle Battle to pit wits.
For the younger player (and maybe the more mature) there are also richly detailed Jigsaws to complete. This features alongside a set of puzzle-form mini-games.
At the heart of the experience is Explorer mode in which up to four players compete to claim territories on the planet. Unlike Risk however, this global domination is achieved by correctly answering questions as well as competing in the puzzle based mini-games.
