Now I'm going to tell you right off the bat that this is a review for a children's game, so if you are looking for Blood Gore Crazy Death-fest, this isn't the review you are looking for.
Kids Card Matching is by Eggroll Games, and is a game that my son now affectionately calls "Colors". In this game you will be given a couple of choices, you can either play a matching game based on colors or on shapes. Now within each of these choices is a couple of game modes. The overarching game modes are memory or just matching, but there's a little bit more death to each style as well.
When you select colors you are given three choices:
- Colors with Colors
- Colors with Words (the text is also the color)
- Colors with Pictures (the pictures will be color coded)
When you select shapes you are going to be given three very similar choices:
- Shapes with Shapes
- Shapes with Pictures (the picture will be an object in that specific shape)
- Pictures with Pictures (they will be different objects but they will share the same shape)
As you can see there's a lot of room to learn and to have fun. Actually there is one more piece to any of the games that you choose to play and that is a celebratory pop the balloons piece that is sprinkled into the gameplay. Now it does count the balloons as you pop them, but there's no extra special stuff added into the game because you popped so many balloons.
You'll also notice that as you play the game it ramps up, early on, from just a few cards to a good number. Now I'm not saying you're going to be matching 50 cards on the screen, this is a child's game, after all, but you can start off with 4 or 6 and then see 12 after a while.
As I've done in the past I'm not going to grade this game, but I will tell you this, if you are a parent of a pre-k child, you are going to want to give this game a spin, it is fun, and it very rewarding to look at success and concentration on your child's face as they get more proficient with the game.
