The premise is age old. Memory card games have been around for who knows how long. Sometimes you play alone, sometimes you play with a partner, but you always play for brainpower. These games are well known not only for testing the memory, but for exercising it and making it stronger as well.
The goal is simple. You want to match pairs. Cards are all face down, and you touch one to turn it over. You then touch another in in hopes of getting a match, and if you do those two cards disappear. The goal in Match Up, a free Android game, is to get as many pairs as possible in the shortest amount of time possible. In Match Up, the score starts at 100,000 and decreases each time you fail to get a pair.
The ability to submit scores to the global leaderboards supported by Swarm via the arrow button on the score screen, adds extra challenge and incentive. You can measure where you stand in comparison to the rest of the world, and even spark a little friendly competition.
Scientists say that the only way protect our brains from getting soft with old age is to exercise them to keep them sharp. Memory games are excellent for that purpose, and Match Up is top notch.
