Simple, Lovely.

The animations & designs are really good, the simplicity makes this game as useful as a memory trainer that there really can be. It needs some refinement and some additional work to be great and maybe even trending towards essential, but it works for what it is.


UI could use some tweaks, it needs to be more intuitive, it edges on perfect but still has some overlooked elements.

Design/animations could be bettered, which would make this app better.

Keep it up devs, you got something with solid potential here.

A memory game

This is a memory game, it is a lot of fun if you like challenging your memory to build it stronger. I’ve read a lot of comments that people say it’s no fun and has no point, but the point is to use your memory to recall the pictures after you see them. If you don’t know what to do, just make up a little story that links them together in order, every time you do it, you get a little better at it. It’s a game, it’s that simple.

To the developers:
I would love to see the icons animate during the recall phase. I don’t always recognize them when they’re not animated.

Needs a Collective Aspect

The animations are the centerpiece of this game, because they're so beautiful and interesting. There needs to be a library of some sort where you can go back and watch the animations again. Maybe once you've successfully remembered it in a sequence, then it appears in your library where you can go and see it there out of the game modes.
