The cities the aeroplane is flying over. (There are two photos where you can see the city.)

Cool game, but I got nothing. Though I think I should know the second one.

I'm not getting them either.

I wonder whether they're even real cities. When I looked at the first one, at the bend in the road in the foreground, I thought for a little while, "that's Lake Shore Drive". But the rest of the picture isn't right.

The first one looks Spanish to me, but I can't think which city. No idea with the second one. I think they are real cities.

Perhaps you could post the images to Facebook and ask if anyone recognizes then?

Bigger pictures here. I still can't place either, but the others appear to be real places.

I can identify several of the others!

For the first picture in the site I found, I tried some Google Maps work on Barcelona and on Marseilles, but didn't find a good match. From your higher-res images, though, the second one from my site has many buildings with Chinese characters on them. (This does not necessarily preclude Japan.)

It definitely isn't Barcelona, but I can't find where it is.

Doesn't spike any recollection of mine either.

I notice the file names for the cities you can recognise contain the names of the city - London, NYC, Paris - Dubai, Sydney - whereas that two just have City1 and City2. Maybe they're not real places.

I just had a look at Google Maps, and it's a spot on match. Good work!
