"Towns, cities, rivers and peaks are pinpointed on the map of Great Britain. The budding geographer is requested to choose the correct answer from a selection of four possibles. Score is based on correctness and time taken. Excellent use of colour, graphics and sound."
When the program starts, enter your name and press <RETURN>.
Each question is multiple-choice, i.e. you are given four alternatives and asked to select the correct one, which you do by pressing the corresponding number (RETURN is not necessary). If your answer is wrong you will be told the correct one. You then move on to the next question until you have completed ten.
After ten questions you are given a score which depends on both the speed and accuracy of your replies, and the next player is invited to enter his/her name.

Review (Electron User)
This is an excellent little program for testing general knowledge of places, rivers, cities, hills etc in Britain. The format is simple. A place is indicated on the map and a choice of four answers is given. The user presses the number key corresponding to the answer chosen.
If the answer is wrong the correct answer is given. After ten questions, the score is displayed. It is based on the number of correct answers plus the speed of response. It is not stimulating enough to teach on its own, but it is a good
program for revision.
