[Android] Free memory game : YaMeMo

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'd like to present you my first Android game : it's a free memory game called [url="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.picoludi.yamemo"]YaMeMo[/url]

Its basically a remake of the classic memory game (you find pairs of matching cards), but also features new game modes:
- in trio you have to find 3 matching cards instead of 2 (much more challenging than it seems)
- in versus you play in turns against one of the bots
There is a combo based scoring system that will hopefully have you play again to beat your highscore.
Five themes are featured in the game and more will be added in next releases.

I'd really like to get some feedback about it, and if you like it, rate it and tell your friends !

A new update has been published with the new CHRONO game mode. It's really different from the time based modes of other memory games, you should try the challenge !

This new mode might need a little balancing. Feedback will be most welcome !

Nice job for a first game, congratulations. Graphics look nice and smooth, though since I'm reviewing I'll bring up two minor points:
[list]
[*]Some of the text is super small on my device, you might want to use more density independent measurements. Especially the ticker and some of the words in the score bar, they were about a millimeter high on my screen (HDPI), much smaller than in your screenshots.
[*]Chrono mode was somewhat confusing, I didn't really understand why the board kept resetting (time based? score based? number of matches?). Maybe could give some contextual feedback there to explain what's going on.
[/list]

Otherwise nice job! Had the sound off on my phone so can't comment on any music/sfx that might exist.

Thanks a lot for the feedback !

I'll make more tests on different resolutions, and screen sizes. It's not as easy as using xml layout since most of the game view 's layout is done programmatically (maybe I should change that as well).
Chrono mode gives new cards every time you have uncovered half the board + 1 pair. You get a (decreasing) time bonus each time until the countdown is over.

There's no sound/music yet. It's probably the next step.

Thanks again for taking the time to give me feedback !

Hey thanks for your feedback Simon. Sorry for not replying sooner, I've been on a kid-free computer-free and unexpectedly 3G-free vacation.

Do you mean you'd like to see your own highscore table or a global score table to compete with other players ?

Having a personal highscore table would be nice enough i guess, (i can see my best score allready though, but the scrolling is a bit annoying since you have to wait for the game mode you're interested in to show up)

It should be fine now ! Cleaned my code, improved layout and probably increased performance. Thanks for motivating me !
