From the main screen of MAPMASTER - GEOGRAPHY GAME, users encounter six buttons: Pinpoint Game, Time Attack, Study Mode, Multiplayer, Achievements, and Leaderboards. Three of those buttons lead to game options: Pinpoint Game (where users drop a pin on a map site) and Time Attack (which is the Pinpoint game, but timed) are the two main games, and users can play against other people online via the Multiplayer menu. Each game lets users sort which geographic features or sites they'd like to be tested on: Choices include national capitals, U.S. cities, famous places (such as the Eiffel Tower or Angkor Wat), and landmarks (such as lakes, rivers, mountain ranges, and islands). Each game requires users to drop a pin on the required site. Users earn points for dropping the pin as close to the correct site as possible (and, in the Time Attack game, as fast as possible). In Study Mode, users can explore the same information on their own, tapping each possible location and then viewing the landmark's Wikipedia page through the in-app browser.
The Achievements and Leaderboard menus are only available to users who sign into their Google accounts to play; these display the user's overall results while playing solo and against others. Users can sign into Google to play against their friends and record their scores in a more public leaderboard. Users must sign in to join external leaderboards and play multiplayer games, but users can play solo in the app without signing in.
