Observatron is a pattern matching game, where you select 3 cards to form a match and win points. Twelve cards are dealt. Each card varies in 4 ways, such as background, shape, color, and number of items shown. You choose 3 cards in which either ALL cards match or NO cards match. There are ten matches to a game.
For each match that you find, you get points which decrease in one minute increments. If you find a match in under a minute, you get 5 points, under two minutes, you get 4 points. After 4 minutes, you get 1 point. Selecting 3 cards that are not a match costs a point.
If you don't see a set, you can choose to deal 3 more cards. Dealing cards when a match exists costs a point. However, if there really were no sets showing, you will get the same points you would have gotten for finding a set.
Hint will select a card that is in a match. The first hint costs one point, and the second hint costs two points. This is especially useful when you're first learning the game.
High scores are kept on the device separately for each theme, and for each number of players.
SINGLE or MULTIPLAYER
You can play solitaire, or you can 'pass and play' with up to four players, meaning you have to be in the same room to pass the phone or ipad around when it's your turn to play.
In the case of multiple players, each takes a turn, but anyone can steal by pressing their button after 30 seconds.
Keep you brain sharp by training your pattern recognition skills. Sudoku and crosswords are great, but your brain responds to new challenges even more.
There are 3 themes, one of which doesn't rely on color at all.
No accounts to create. No sign-in needed. This is a fairly simple game that exists on your iphone or ipad. We collect no data from you whatsoever.
For those who like dark mode, we've got you covered.
Stay Sharp and Have Fun with Observatron!
