Lonely Planet Releases Globe Tripper App

Lonely Planet has a new travel trivia app called the Globe Tripper app. The game app lets players test their knowledge of destinations around the globe and solve puzzles while they are at it.

Lonely Planet has a number of travel guide apps, but this is the publisher’s first foray into game apps. The publisher created the app in conjunction with the BBC Worldwide’s Digital Entertainment and Games division.

The game includes questions about world cultures, history, geography, current events and language. By answering questions correctly, users can earn miles that advance their trip around the world.

Through the app, users can share their scores on Facebook and Twitter.
