Is there something particularly iconic about the Johannesburg skyline that makes it recognizable? In all the other ones there were specific landmarks/buildings that helped with identification, but I don't know anything about the Johannesburg skyline.

Maybe it's in for the challenge and inclusion (of Africa). I just left it down to two I wasn't quite sure of and 50% chance was enough for obtaining the perfect score.

Other cities stop at one tall tower with a bulbous knob somewhere near the top. Cape Town decided they needed three. Similar approach as South Africa took to its national capitals.

Map Quiz? I don't see a map? A picture quiz, I'd say.

"Map Quiz" is a quiz format, originally intended for maps. It is the one where you click the answers highlighted in blue, rather than typing them. Being level 82, I would've thought you'd know that already?

Can't you remove "Map quiz" from the title?

And it was a serious question. I'm not sure wether the tag is added automatically when you use that format or not (and if it can be removed or not).

The tag in the title is not, but the actual "tag" is added automatically due to the format used. But QM normally includes "Map Quiz" in all features quizzes of this format (for example see my Monopoly "Map Quiz" features). I think I'll leave the choice up to QM due to this.

There's a magic castle, a rocket ship, some Arabian palaces, and an enormous duck crossbred with Alfred Hitchcock, among other oddities.

In Seattle the Space Needle is far from the tallest building. Based on the other skylines it seemed like you were trying to keep things roughly in scale rather than focusing on a specific angle (but I could be wrong, not an expert on these skylines).

If that is the case, I'd suggest reducing space needle size relative to others

It is the most distinctive though, read the caveat.
