Great game for problem-solvers…A great little game. If you like puzzles and memory games you’ll love it. Stable. Good intuitive controls. Good navigation. A fun way to pass a few minutes.
Hall of Fame reviewer jjceo adds:
This is a fun game to play and it can be challenging. I like that there are quite a few symbols and the pieces also can move around. The “Combo” voice is a nice touch! The game features 4 different games modes and I like the basic mode the best where I can try to beat my old best and fastest score. You can beat your time to finish or reduce the number of moves to win. The survival mode is also fun and will give you bonuses for fast combinations with no errors…The graphics are fairly good and overall it is a simple design game and well designed.
DoubleTake is a chilled-out yet frantic pair-matching game based on the classic card game Memory. DoubleTake features shiny graphics, soothing sounds and music, and four different game modes for every skill level. Train your brain or just relax and enjoy the pretty colors.Four Ways to Test Your Memory
The four game modes give you a wide variety of matching games. Sprint mode is a super-fast game; you get only one minute to match as many pairs as you can. Your score is based on speed. Timed mode is a little less frantic, but you still have a time limit. When you make matches, you restore your time to the time limit.
Survival mode is more relaxing as there is no time limit, but it’s still a challenge. Your health meter depends on accuracy; you lose health points for mismatches, and gain health for fresh matches. Basic mode is the most relaxed mode. Simply match the entire board without penalties for mismatches. Try for the best time and the fewest number of moves.
Build combos for higher scores, and take advantage of the cool power-ups in Survival and Timed modes. DoubleTake improves your memory skills while relaxing your brain.
Whether you’re trying to keep the gray matter limber, keep a child amused in a waiting room, or just keep yourself entertained, DoubleTake is for you.
