GeoGuesser now unplayable outside the Pro version.

Really quite gutted about this one. I could very easily lose a couple of hours wandering around London and getting the location down to a few metres. The change happened quite recently with no announcement, so naturally, the silent fanbase has started to get very vocal about this on Reddit in particular.

It would dump you on a random point on the Google earth map in streetview mode, and you'd have to move around, picking up clues from your surroundings to try to figure out where you were, then making a guess on a pop-up map, scoring points up to 5000 on how close you were. 

A few months ago the ads started to get intrusive, stopping play for a few seconds while trying to hock you the pro version. While not expensive, it just seemed to be a cheeky ask for something that was free for the longest time.

There is a free version available, but instead of google, it uses mapillary, which is quite literally stills from a dashcam.

Best way to describe is to show. This is the guy who's just tried to walk across wales in a straight line..

And as if by magic, the website's been altered to allow one play per day of a certain map. Give it a week and It'll probably be back to normal with the brains behind this atrocity looking for a new job :)

Speaking from experience, they might be struggling for money to keep it going and throwing any idea they can in the hope that they save it. You may find it's gone completely after a while. :/
