I've added another 15 for the time being. Will keep it under review. Two minutes feels like a good challenge for me, but then I got a lot of practice while making it.

Seems like the right amount of time. It took me 3 tries to get all 10, but it seems like it's just a matter of how many random tiny countries you get vs larger ones. I had 1:04 left on the 3rd try that had many more easily scanned countries. Great quiz!

Maybe make a pro version in which you have to CLICK them? You can do this by changing the :hover's to :active. Or will that just be too hard?

I’ve tried it. Not sure that it adds anything, just makes it less fluid. Doubly so because clicking also zooms.

If you have Inkscape, you can set the scale to 0 and the zoom will be disabled. But now I realized that it IS too hard.

This was really fun

But for some reason, Bahrain seems to appear pink every time I hover over it. Is that supposed to happen?

+3
Level 82
May 5, 2021
Hmm, no. Bahrain isn't a possible answer so should not have been turning pink, but I can guess what was happening.

I've now removed it completely along with some other tiny countries that were not possible answers but still on the map. Now everything you can see is a possible answer, unless I've missed somewhere. Thanks for letting me know.

I'm out of words. Speechless. When I clicked on this quiz, I thought that it was a bit suspicious that a blue link had randomly gotten 80 nominations. Now I'm suspicious as to why it didn't get 300. A fun, but challenging quiz, I only managed to get 6/10. 5 stars, nominated, and just wow. To think of how you came up with this idea—and persevered to pull it off—just wow. Again, I'm speechless.

I'm sure this is a great game but it doesn't work at all on my monitor – I see no pink. In fact all I see is a world map and each country lights up black when you click on it. Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong here??
+1
Level 70
May 10, 2021
Great idea, sadly but all but impossible on an ipad. You have to click on every country to see if it is pink or not. There just isn’t enough time to click on all of them.

Level 82
May 10, 2021
Yep, sorry, it isn't suitable for touchscreens as per the caveat. I haven't yet found a way to make it work on them unfortunately so you do need a mouse or similar control method (hence mouse hunt!)

That was a lot of fun. Got 9/10 three times (and 7/10 once) before I was able to finish in time, so the timing is just right. Only quibble is the svg path for the Palestinian Territories appears to be missing, making a big lake between Israel and Jordan.

May 11, 2021
You should rename this "Standard Luck Test: how often does the country happen to be in the first continent you search?" There isn't time to find all 10 unless you're lucky enough to search the right continent early in your search most of the time. Keep trying until your luck improves. Apparently I'm not lucky enough to beat this quiz.
+2
Level 82
May 11, 2021
I just tested it again - no countries in either of the first two continents I tried and got all 10 with about 30 seconds to spare. I've had practice though!

Could add another 15 seconds. Don't want to add too much - it's supposed to be a challenge. Commenter above found it just right for instance.

+1
Level 73
May 12, 2021
I was quick and on my third or fourth try, I managed to scan all continents and got 10/10 with 8 seconds to spare. You can get lucky, but it's more important to be fast.

First time the hardest part was noticing the small pink countries like Lebanon and Malawi at normal scale. Second time I used zoom to variously look closer at each continent and this was waaay easier. Should read the fine print at the top more often but was too tempting to start whizzing the mouse all over the map the first time.

Genuinely one of the most fun "quizzes" on this site, thank you! Having 9/10 countries with 30 seconds to spare is one of the most stressful situations on Jetpunk!

It took me 8 tries to beat it, and I had East Timor in at least 5 of those and not a single a South American country in any of them. Is there any sort of preference algorithm, or is it totally random and I just happened to notice patterns that weren't there?

+3
Level 82
May 12, 2021
It uses the normal JetPunk randomiser so it's as random as any other quiz. You were unlucky to keep getting East Timor! South America is the continent you're least likely to have a country in, simply because it has the fewest. Glad you enjoyed it.

Due to the fine movements this requires to select some of the tiny countries (even with zoom), I find it impossible to complete in the allotted time. Maybe that's the idea.

Okay...sometimes it's hard enough just to find the countries, whether using zoom or not. And I'm not a total slowpoke. On the Fast Typing 100 WPM quiz, I usually get 7 right and am halfway to 80 WPM, which means I am definitely above the 90% mark.
