This still uses the old world map before the update in 2020, so Maldives and Kiribati in particular are slightly different.

On mobile you might need to scroll left/right a little to see the whole map. Also you may have been zoomed in accidentally, meaning only a small portion of the map would be visible.

That sounds like you accidentally clicked it to zoom in, and when you clicked it again it un-zoomed and it was there all along.

I don't understand this at all. I got 0 because it showed a tiny country in what appeared to the the top center of a map, but it wasn't any northern European or Baltic nation. It never told me what it was. Are they just randomly shown without regard to where they lie on a map?

May 31, 2021
They are in the same position as the normal world map. When you finish the quiz, everything you missed is shown and you can hover on them to see what they were. Since the order is randomized, it means JetPunk doesn't show stats afterwards.

If you started with a small country, perhaps refreshing the page would make this make more sense. This harder version doesn't retain countries on the map after you guess them, so I would recommend doing the original quiz first so you understand the general concept.

sometimes if you click on the empty map the magnified page will stay and distort the world map, then what you think is far North could be just North of the little segment of the map that you clicked on.

Finished first try in 23 mins, had 7 left. Without any frame of reference, and not even their shapes, the caribbean and oceania islands were just a guess-game until I got them xP

Would it be possible to have an option to change the background color? staring at -mostly- white screen for so long became a little uncomfortable in the eyes. Maybe a more sepia tone.

Great quizz, thanks for making it! :D

Most oceanic countries do have distinguishable shape

About half of the carribean countries are also distinguishable (barely though, like trinidad and tobago is the closest one to mainland south america)

I did confuse the locations of mauritius, comoros, seychelles, and maldives, because they have the same shape in this, however i eventually got them all.

Senegal was my last country :D

I really should do these types of quizzes in front of an audience. For anyone to complete this at all is quite the feat. Doing so as quickly as I did (I'm a slow typist) makes it that much more impressive. Thanks for taking the time to create such a phenomenal quiz. Truly.

They no longer use custom styling, but also more importantly, the stats for them is now relevant. (It's the first step of trying to provide "useful" stats for randomized quizzes). So the stats you see after this quiz (and on the quiz stats page) are all correct and appropriate. Previously they all got jumbled up due to our normal randomizer system, so the results were pretty much even.

I was able to get it, but I had a heck of a time trying to get Maldives. The shape seems off on this map compared to the other ones I'm used to (it's usually more elongated, rather than just a circle).

Unfortunately this is still the "old" JetPunk world map, from before the SVG Update in 2020. So Maldives, Tuvalu, Palau and Kiribati are noticeably different.

Great quiz. One small suggestion...use a different color for the small island countries that have been made visible by an unofficial enclosure containing mostly ocean. This would make it clear that we're not trying to interpret these as shapes of countries. It's not a huge problem, since these enclosures are generally much more rounded in appearance than actual country boundaries, but still it's a relevant distinction.
