Warm acoustic jazz floats through Memopoly—the sort of soundtrack you might hear in a coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon.
It makes sense, then, that the first round of this relaxing puzzler has an image of a coffee cup. There, as in subsequent stages, you have to guess a series of hidden patterns by tapping different colors in that adjacent image. You get a limited number of moves, so don’t guess frivolously.
Little hints along the way help you make sense of the patterns using the process of elimination rather than rote memorization. And each color plays a soft piano note when tapped—a nice accompaniment to the game’s mellow acoustic jazz soundtrack.
Memopoly has a gentle spirit. Correctly guess a pattern on your first try and you’ll be cheered on (“What a chance!”). It even encourages you to take a deep breath before each round.
Ultimately, Memopoly is a calming puzzler that’s just tricky enough to be challenging but never gets frustrating.
