Neato! Took me a while because you've gotta be within one pixel for it to lock in or something. Thought I was doing something wrong for a minute :D

It's pretty easy though. I suck at geography, and I finished it pretty quickly.

It would be a good tool to help teach geography. I wish there were more versions.

Yeah! I was hoping the "reset" button would give you a different set of countries to puzzle out.

I liked how the images changed size as you went up and down in latitude. That stumped me a little at first, until I figured it out.
