Trip Around The Globe
Like many others, I spent a lot of time in my formative years chasing a red fedora-and-trenchcoat clad woman around the world, answering geography questions to recover stolen monuments. Nowadays, while I still like doing the occasional globe-trotting, I'm not sure I could handle the pressure of possibly losing the Sydney Opera House to a vast criminal organization. Still, should you have a yen for social studies trivia, Trip Around The Globe, an arcade game by SymbioDigital, will more than satisfy that worldy desire. It's a simple game of collecting trivia questions, then driving a (somewhat difficult to maneuver) car to the proper location to score points. The graphics are pretty (if a little CPU-intensive will full effects on), the questions are goofy, but clever, and while the game take only a couple of minutes to play, they'll be good minutes. All that's missing is Rockapella on the soundtrack.
