“If you are not prepared to lose all your friends over a memory game, you aren’t playing hard enough”, once said an anonymous person.
Though there are a lot of memory games for the young-old and the old-old, matching card memory games are the best. One such is the MemoX game, developed by manboz and available for free on the play store.
MemoX is a small-sized app that gets downloaded instantly and does not demand annoying sign-up or account activation. You can click the installed app icon and start playing the game right away.
The gameplay is simple with an intuitive interface. On a virtual table lie a grid of cards, face down. Touch a card to flip it. Keep flipping them one by one until you find a pair. Once you match, the pair disappears from the table. You win a level by clearing all the cards from the table. Sounds too easy and guessable, right?
To make this simple game challenging, MemoX presents you with a ‘3 Equal’ game type, wherein you need to discover and match 3 similar cards instead of 2. Searching for three similar cards in a grid can be challenging and demands more concentration.
MemoX has more than 60 fun levels for you to play. You can unlock consecutive levels by completing the current one. Every unlocked level can be played as many times, and you can keep beating your previous record. While playing a level, at the top of the screen, you will find the details of your best score, i.e., the number of turns and time. And below that, your recent attempt details are displayed.
You can spice up the game by inviting a friend or a family member for a 1 vs 1 Multiplayer game. This way, you can dare and outperform each other. Under ‘Settings’ on the home page, you will find two options, ‘Mark Discovered Cards’ and ‘Auto Cover Cards’, that increase level difficulty.
While playing, you might have noticed that all face-down cards carry a question mark on the top to denote that they haven’t been opened yet. Auto Cover Cards option closes a revealed card faster than it generally would, making the gameplay hard. You can enable or disable them to experience an elevated gaming experience.
MemoX can also be an educational game as you can teach your kids about the flags of countries, in addition to improving their
- Memory skills
- Attention, focus, and concentration
- Visual recognition
- Thinking and decision making skills
When you play with your kids, you can make this a fun game by making them call out the name of the country the flag belongs to. If they guess it right, you can praise and reward them with their favorite treat. MemoX can give you the best family time.
Though the ads that appear on the bottom of the screen disturb the gameplay occasionally, the amount of enjoyment you have playing MemoX makes it a worthy download. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app and share it with your friends too.
