Lucy's Globe is a multilingual globe and a geography puzzle. It gives you the possibility to improve your geographical knowledge and at the same time to learn the corresponding vocabulary not only in English but also in foreign languages. And you do this while you are playing, because when you select one of the puzzle modes, the globe transforms to a states puzzle: All the countries take the same color and all the labels are hidden. At the same time, a list with the states or the capitals of states appear in the chosen order: surface of the states, population, density of population, alphabetical o random. After this, the task consists in selecting the names of states o capitals in the list and in clicking the corresponding states on the globe.
Some states are so tiny that they cannot be clicked easily. For this reason you can use a magnification glass. But the real problem are not the tiny states from which you know the position but the ones for which you do not know where they are. For example, if you don't know where Singapore is, you have no other choice than to select the table with the states (or the list with the labels) which allows to find Singapore. Once you found it, you can use the magnification glass to magnify it and then you can click it.
The infobox gives you the basic data about a clicked country: surface, population, density of population. With the table of states you can put the countries in one of different orders: name, surface, population, density of population, continent... All the labels on the globe can be found and the globe turns so that the label comes in the middle. Groups of states as the EU, the Arab League... can be emphasized. With Lucy's Globe you can also enter you own labels, add groups of states, add cities...
With the shareware version only a part of the states is used in the puzzle modes.
