Challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look. :)

Developer

Thank you! I'll surely watch it as soon as possible!

Hot damn, I kept trying just knowing that eventually I would get it out of sheer gambling luck! This was definitely the game that reminded me that simple memory games are actually still very addictive. Also I was into those card charming sprite designs. 

Thanks for Jamming! Do enter the next one in July if you can! https://itch.io/jam/pizza-jam-3-pizza-prize

Oh oh oh thank you very much!,i'll look into it as soon as possible

Very nice game design work you've done.

This is a neat twist on the original memory game rules, the added mechanics are well thought-out and add extra fun to an originally not-so-fun game. (Or maybe i'm just here venting out my frustrations with having really bad memory as a child. Who knows?)

That life bar REALLY makes justice to that game name, thought. God, I hate the life bar. But it is certainly needed, because I wouldn't have tried to replay this until I won if that pesky thing wasn't there...

Ok...
I didn't win.

YET. But only because I've faced a bug in which I've found the heart cards but one of them stayed on the table after that. Besides that, I'm not complaining. It's in the title, after all.

For what could be improved, I think it would be nice to have more visual feedback to make the rules easier to understand. It took me a while to realize that the reason I couldn't pick cards from certain rows / columns was because i had turned a card which blocked those respective fields. I think that reducing the opacity or even changing the color of the cards which are unselectable would help with that? I don't know about the limitations of Scratch, but I think that should be doable, given that you've done something similar with the Lock cards.

Besides all, I love that you've made a memory game variation because, honestly, how could you incorporate the theme more than this? It's even kinda meta. And the way you've done it is a really clever one. Nice work!

thank you for the suggestions! The opacity thing is a very clever idea (maybe i'll add it in a next update)

I'll try to bugfix the cards(the project makes a lot of actions at the same time,so scratch (aka mr. SLOW AF) makes a mess with the code :(

I will make the game work for more people (The game exe only works on one of my pcs, the rest just say movie not loaded for 5 hours)

Developer

i made a big mess with the game's files (i wanted to upload 2 version of the same project. the first one for the game jam and the second one in order to update the game) and now i have only the almost finished one...

Submitted

I had to play on Scratch Editor because the Flash Player was glitching, probally my fault for downloading the stupid Windows 10 Creators Update which breaks some apps

I may remix this! I will credit you.

Developer

yes please!

I'll finish the whole thing as soon as possible (maybe fixing some weird glitches)

Submitted

Do you have a scratch account (Just asking, I do but do not share my projects on Scratch anymore)

Developer

no i haven't. I prefer uploading on itch.io 

Submitted

Same, this way you get a wider audience, I have 20x as many views as I got my entire 3 years on Scratch (I got about 2,600 views when I shared on Scratch)

Submitted

So sadly Flash is pretty dead these days which also makes this hard to play :(

If you want to try to make it more accessible, I do remember seeing a Scratch to JS converter here. Give it a shot maybe?

Developer

thank you!

I'll try it as soon as possible!

Submitted

I do not use (JS Scratch) phosphorus to exe because it brings some bugs, and Flash has no bugs running Scratch projects and will be fullscreen if you set it to while converting. I only use phosphorus to exe on big games that would lag on flash.
