Cool idea. There seem to be a lot of errors, which is understandable given the difficulty.

Some I tried to no avail:

Repeat letters: Philippines

Has a capital ending in a vowel: Italy, Turkey, Samoa

Thank you; but all of the errors seem out of place:

Philippines is located in Asia, but the instructions say it cannot be

Turkey and Italy don't have repeated letters

The third one says "Is alphabetically before Samoa" and Samoa doesn't fit that clue

Thanks for the help, though! :)

I think you've made a mistake there. The letter "a" appears twice in Latvia, and it is an accepted answer for everything until "Is not landlocked". Love these quizzes btw :)

Nice quiz. Still not sure about the capitals ending in vowels. Why do Finland and Cuba not seem to work at the moment?

I typed ITALY and it was accepted, but there is no repeated letters in that name. I typed it AFTER the step that have that clause!

You should remove Italy from that list (after proper point)...

I feel like the Panama clue gives the last two away. Had Canada until that point but did not think of Costa Rica or Colombia. You do not have to think after you know it borders Panama.

Russia is generally considered as European on JetPunk, so we'd rather include it than not (and get complaints). There are 73 other options for that category, so no need to stress something like that.

I can see that there have been some fixes around the landlocked country question, but it is still bugged.

I tried Mozambique which works for the first six questions but fails the landlocked question (even though it isn't).

Agree with others that the Panama clue makes the rest way too easy. Good clues are valid for lots of countries, and you have to consider all the clues that came before to figure out which countries fit all of the clues so far. The Panama clue narrows it down to only two countries, and you can ignore everything else that came before.

Nicaragua was working down until "not landlocked" at which it stopped working... and to my knowledge Nicaragua isn't landlocked :) Also, Columbia didn't work for "bordering Panama" even though there should be 2 valid answers. And as far as I know the only two countries bordering Panama are Columbia and Costa Rica :)
