Default [Game] Memory Owl HD (update 12th June - new levels)

Version 1.61. On the Market:

https://market.android.com/details?i...ry.memoryowlhd

It's a fun game not only for children:
- you have to find pairs of matching pictures like in memory game,
- there is raising water level (tiles can drown),
- there is physics at works,
- there are birds and fish that can interact with the tiles making it harder,
- on some levels tiles change places,
- some levels have layers, you can also catch stars to make more points,



Actual version is first market release - I hope I won't get a waterfall of bug reports.

It requires OpenGL ES 2.

Credits: most tile pictures are public domain art from openclipart.org, all the rest is by me. I used libgdx with box2d for the physics.

Known bugs: nothing right now, I hope it will stay that way.

It was tested on children and adults.

Hm, no responses? Has anyone tried it? Does it work for you? Is it good or bad? Do you like it?

Graphically it is very clean and fluid.
There's nice touches and twists like the small blue bird who sits waiting to drag a tile out of the water and the changing tiles make it more interesting.
If pitched against a normal tile matching game conceptually this one would win hands down.

My only issue is even I found it difficult later on. Speed and accuracy was killing it for me.
Considering I had downloaded this for my 4yr old Granddaughter, as brainy as she is I'm sure she would have soon become frustrated in not being able to complete the level.
She's coming over tomorrow and I had intended to let her try it out before commenting.
I'll try and get back later in the week.
.........I don't always get your questions right.... but you'll certainly know I've tried.

P.S. Many thanks for the Thanks votes. Thanks received are converted into a charitable donation.

Thanks. The levels are mostly test levels (to test all the options) - I will make first batch easier and make it harder in later levels.

From a 'younger' point of view, that would certainly make it better.

Young minds soon lose interest after the first five minutes and the trick is to keep them attentive and wanting more.
By making that first batch easier will certainly help.
I know she will love the graphics and the different game play will test her... Just slow it down a bit and I think it's a winner.

I like this game already...for little kid, I think making it easier is a good idea. if you are aiming for all ages group, can you possibly make an easy mode for children and a challenge mode for adult? Or something like that. Cause if it too easy I'll get bored and if it too hard my kid will get bored lol. Hope that help.

On the evo 4g... Framerate is smooth at title and options menu. From the level menu on it becomes slow and slightly choppy. Hope this helps.

Thanks. That is really helpful. I'm fighting the speed problems right now - something strange is going on in the select level screen (not much graphics is shown and even Tegra 2 can't generate 50fps - it drops to 44). I'll let you know when new version will be available for testing (the optimisations are a priority now, then I'll design levels). I will also add easy/normal/hard difficulty switcher.
