Now that most people have smartphones, GPS and mapping apps make it unlikely to find oneself in an unfamiliar city without any bearings, but 'Wayward Wanderer' is a game that makes use of that selfsame mapping technology to bring back some of that lost thrill. The app uses Google Maps Street View to virtually place users in a random city, and it tasks them with finding their way to a destination using nothing but intuition.

Wayward Wanderer has varying levels of difficulty. First, users can pick whether their destination point is a famous landmark or a completely random address. Then, they can select easy, medium, or hard, with each level representing an increased radius from that final point.
