Amazing! In my humble opinion, it works a lot better than with celebrities. The cities chosen are perfect for a quiz like that, and the drawing are truly beautiful. Congratulations for this new masterpiece!

Thank you for your kind words, as always. I still think the effect works better with the celebrities, because there are several instances on this one when it looks like nothing is being painted.

Mindblowing. This quiz was so fun to watch, you almost don't want to guess instantly just so you can watch the colours form! The increasing difficulty was excellent as well, such a carefully chosen selection of cities. And I agree, this works much better than celebrities.

Thank you very much. I did take some time to consider the selection and order of the cities, so I'm glad you appreciate it.

yes, rushing through guessing as quick as possible, found i could have taken twice as long to watch the pictures.

Just brilliant! Agree with everything said above. Wonderfully made in both form and content. Difficulty was just right, managed it but the last couple were a challenge. Such a pleasure of a quiz to play. Thanks for all these 5 star quality quizzes you're making!

You are very welcome, though you partially have yourself to thank for at least a few of them.

Sorry about that. Unfortunately, some CSS animations always seem to lag on mobile devices.

Yeah, I’m not sure how smooth this is supposed to be. Nonetheless, it’s an amazing and really creative idea. Good job, once again.

Thank you. I've tried making it a little smoother for mobile devices. It still lags a bit, but hopefully it's a slight improvement.

Today I learned that Giza, is right next to Cairo.

after typing "Luxor", then getting the right answer for "Cairo"

Great quiz but the last one is really difficult. You can replace it with Athens (Parthenon is a hint)!!

I agree and would suggest Moscow as a replacement))

Feb 25, 2023
Agreed. There always has to be that 1 answer on a JP quiz that's impossible. If that's Cape Town's cityscape, it's pretty bland and nondescript.

Table mountain has a unique shape.

Maybe to some, but it doesn't compare to the other iconic cities being represented here. Sort of a "one of these things is not like the other" situation.

There's nothing wrong with one answer being tougher than the rest, I didn't get it but once I saw the answer it made sense.

That's fair, but I wanted to have two African cities, and I wanted them to get progressively more difficult. So far, I don't feel that the percentage of people that have got Cape Town correct is low enough to warrant changing it.

It is difficult, but as long as some are getting it right I don't think it's too difficult.

Is Cape Town bugged? Mine stopped on a half finished picture?
+1
Level 71
Feb 25, 2023
It shouldn't be. Though, the sky is quite a similar colour to the canvas, so that could be why it looked unfinished. Also, if Cape Town is the last painting you guess, it won't fill in like the rest, as the paintings don't display after the quiz is finished.

Level 81
Feb 26, 2023
I had the same experience, it didn't finish like the other pictures. There was nothing of any prominence to discern from the painting except for table mountain. The rest looks like camouflage. Maybe it was a random glitch.

Level 71
Feb 26, 2023
There aren't really any discernible landmarks other than Table Mountain and the stadium. I think the camouflage you're describing is probably just the mass of buildings mixed in with the landscape.

Level 84
Feb 27, 2023
For sure, there are no discernible buildings in the image. I thought it was a picture of a forest. I've got to give this one 1 star until something is done about Cape Town.

I've done what I can to improve the Cape Town image. Hopefully it is a little better now.

I got Cape Town on the second pass of the brush - perfect! (I actually found it easier than Rio, which I couldn't get until you-know-what appeared.)

Brilliant quiz, five stars!

Thank you.

The answer shown is Giza. Cairo is a type in because Giza is within the metropolitan area of Cairo.

Really nice quiz, especially the animations. I have a question is it like a SVG map or what? I'm very curious and the paintings look pretty good.

Thank you very much. It is an SVG that I created in Inkscape and animated in JetPunk using CSS. The paintings are all vectorised photos.
