Alpha Memory Game
Alpha Memory is a free open source memory game for one or two players by Marc Lepage, co-developer of NeverMaze. Children practice their alphabet by matching pairs of letters accompanied by fun animations and sounds.
Memory, also known as Concentration or simply Pairs, is a card game in which all of the cards are laid face down on a surface and two cards are flipped face up over each turn. The object of the game is to turn over pairs of matching cards. Memory can be played with any number of players or as solitaire and is an especially good game for young children, though adults may find it challenging and stimulating as well. The scheme is often used in quiz shows and can be employed as an educational game.
You can download Alpha Memory for FREE at BlackBerry World for BlackBerry 10 phones and PlayBook.
It uses GamePlay, BlackBerry's cross-platform open source native game engine.
