Tiny Countries
Players learn about the world while trying to save it in this information-packed adventure game
Publisher: June Infrastructure Pvt Ltd

Why we love this app

It appeals to older elementary students who are looking for a little adventure while learning world geography. The introduction is beautifully animated, with simple instructions and a creative backdrop (which can be skipped). The gameplay is rather tongue-in-cheek, although the questions can be challenging.

What it teaches and how it works

Tiny Countries teaches world geography, offering lessons and quizzes around capitols, major landmarks, and geographic borders. Players can successfully hop from one country to another across oceans and other terrain. Answer correctly and move on to the next question en route to saving the world. Enough wrong answers and they’ll be swimming with sharks.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

As Tiny, players are tasked with protecting the world from Dr. Evil (different from the Austin Powers character). There is a lot of time spent learning enough about the 75 countries surveyed to save the world.
