Alternate name: Location identification

The first video game about Location information was released in 1985.

Apogee Software, Bethesda Softworks and id Software has published most of these games

This is for identifying small parts of whole levels, maps, etc. rather than the levels themselves being those small parts. Especially when this occurs for locations that are not separated by transitions.

May not give any useful info when the protagonist (or their GPS-like equipment) does not know where they are (e.g. the location ident gives them only "unknown" or similar at such places).
