The $0.99 application, which is compatible with both the iPhone and iPod touch, doesn’t hold many surprises in store. Floating Memory instead holds true to the original game but ramps up the look and feel of the popular pastime for the contemporary mobile gaming community. The great “extra challenge” alluded to in the app’s marketing material refers to how Floating Memory challenges gamers to match up pairs in the least amount of steps as they float through an ocean.
The game play is straightforward and instantly addictive with higher levels offering heightened challenges, particularly as the “ocean” gets more cluttered with obstacles. With an assortment of characters to spruce up the gaming environment, not to mention a fast pace to really make the game a challenge, Floating Memory serves up an assortment of cool attributes that make the app worth downloading.
- An extra memory challenge.
- Experience improved short term memory skills and attention span.
- Three difficulty modes of 7 levels each
- Beautiful sea creatures and animation.
- Plays with iPod (you can listen to your own music while playing)
Floating Memory is definitely one of the few games capable of holding the attention of both young and old alike. In this regard, the winning formula of style and substance certainly helps add a little more longevity to a game that seems to have been around forever and will likely persist in some fashion for many more generations to come.
A lot of colorful words have been used to describe and hype the game, but flashy components aside, it’s the fun game play and the classic context of the game itself that truly makes Floating Memory a must-have application and one you’re bound to remember.
