I had only ever heard "Mombasa" mentioned in old contexts like "Bombay", so I assumed it had changed names. I didn't know that it was still a city!

Just to clarify for you, this is not a quiz of every single city on Earth beginning with 'M'! it's just a selection of some of them for the purpose of this quiz.

One of those lovely occasions when I hit the 'Give Up?' button, and the only ones I missed were the ones I legitimately didn't know. I wasn't left kicking myself over any of them!

You know this wasn't a quiz to identify every major world city that starts with M, right? Shockingly, Mbuji-Mayi wasn't there either.

If someone did want to be exhaustive here is the top 312 over 100k population. Probably best to limit it to top 20 or 25 though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_towns_and_cities_with_100,000_or_more_inhabitants/cityname:_M

Interestingly Mbuji-mayi has 50% more people than Munich so maybe people should learn where it is.

Until I realized could zoom in, I kept wondering how I was misspelling "Melilla."

Minneapolis looks like it could be Madison, Marseille looks like Monaco, Malaga looks like Melilla, and Maputo looks like Mbabane. Maybe allow some nearby M cities as type-ins?

It's fair as it is - in all cases the correct answer is the larger, better known city which first comes to mind (except in the case of Marseille/Monaco where the latter is also well-known)
