Im a professional always thinking outside the box and a self-confessed gadget addict. As a son of a professor of cartography I was surrounded by maps all my life and as a result spatial way of thinking and seeing reality is naturally embedded in who I am.

Google Maps Cubeis a game about Google Maps rather than based on Maps. It has been released as a promotion of G Maps after the launch of Google+ back in 2012. None the less its really worth mentioning. The game is about navigating a ball on a 3D Google Maps cube, avoiding the 3D buildings and other obstructions, by rotating the cube. You will play it only once, but youll have a lot of fun!

Pursuedis a surprisingly fun Street View game from Hungarian game developers Nemesys Games. The main theme of the game is as follows: Youve been taken without warning. A friend is trying to help you, but you must figure out where you are!. The aim of the game is to guess the name of the city you look at and type the name in the dedicated box as soon as possible. If you cant tell by the visual clues in the Street View you can move around by clicking in the Street View image and by using your + and – keys to zoom in and out. Its really cool and well made.

Locate Streetis a StreetView-based game. It gives you a series of random Street View panoramas. Your task is to figure out the location of every image and choose a correct quiz answer. The game is a little bit slow but its a lot of fun.

Geo Gunsis a tank shooting game.  The game takes full advantage of Google Maps 45 (Birds Eye) satellite view. It overlays a couple of tanks on the satellite image. Tanks of enemy are starting to attack you from the top. Your task is to destroy them. You can choose from a number of pre-set battlefield locations for your tank fight but you can also select any location by entering location on the top of the screen. The game is short and its a typical time killer but its cool.

GueGuessris definitely on the top of our list. It started as a small web app that gives you the challenge of guessing the locations of a series of random Street View images. After youve made your guess, it reveals the real location, and awards points based on how close you get. Its so addictive that it gained a lot of attention. Onthe websitewe can read that it partnered with brands like BBC, Skoda or The North Face.

Smarty Pinsis a game developed by Google Engineers. The aim is to find out the answer to a question and pin point this location on the map. For example you would get the question: Where is the oldest British university? and you would have to put a pin on the Oxford. The first questions are typically based in a players local country, or are related to very popular places or people but as you progress the playing board expands to the rest of the world and gets more difficult. The game is really well made and its a lot of fun.

MapsTDis a tower defence game that uses Google Maps to generate levels from any location across the world. Your task is to defend your castle from attackers by strategically placing and managing your defense towers. Its a pretty standard tower defence setup, but the pleasure comes from doing it across real-world streets and locations.

This2D Driving Simulatoris an experiment rather than an actual game. You can driver around the city with a car or a bus, the only problem is that it does not encounters any obstacles so in practice you can glide over everything on the map. Nonetheless I found it quite entertaining.

Map Raceis a cool quiz game. The idea behind it is to show you a satellite picture of a location and 4 answers. The task is to select a correct answer as soon as possible. If you guess the wrong city, youll get more time to solve it, which is bad. The game needs some polishing but its quite playable.
