Stack the States

Stack the States IconI’ve just submitted my latest iPhone app, Stack the States, to the iTunes App Store. This time around I decided to try something different and create an educational app. The goal was to create a learning app that was actually fun to play.

The object of the game is fairly simple. You are asked various questions about the 50 states including capitals, state shapes, abbreviations, bordering states, location on the map and even nicknames. If you choose the correct state, you get to actually pick it up, move it, rotate it and place it wherever you want. Your goal is to carefully create a stack of states that reaches the checkered line.

Every time you complete a level you earn a random state. As you try to collect all 50 states, you can always check your progress on your personalized map of the US. All of the states you have earned appear on your map in their correct locations. As you earn more and more states, you start unlocking the three included bonus games: Pile Up, Puzzler and Capital Drop.

Bonus Game: Pile Up
Pile Up becomes unlocked and playable after earning 10 states. The object of Pile Up is to remove all of the states before they pile up to the top of the screen. To remove a state, simply tap the state shape whose name is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Bonus Game: Puzzler
Puzzler is the second bonus game in Stack the States and is unlocked after earning 25 states. The object is simple, move the displayed state shapes around and put them together like a jigsaw puzzle. Puzzler is great for teaching and reinforcing the relative locations of the states.

Bonus Game: Capital Drop
Capital Drop is the third and last bonus game in Stack the States. The object of the game is to match the states with their capitals. When you see a match, simply tap the capital box and the state shape in any order and they fly away. The game ends when a state falls off the bottom of the screen. Match as many states with their capitals as you can.
