¡MEMORY!by LuthienCeleste - Jam Entry
¡MEMORY! is a card matching game aimed mainly at kids.
It has a KID MODE (one screen mode) which avoids most ways in which a little kid could get himself trapped in a screen which is not the game proper out of which he is unable to get out.
Some time ago I made an icon matching game for my nephews.
They played it a bit but soon got tired of it. The main complain they had was when they got "trapped" in the options or credits screen unable to continue playing. I said I would make a mode for them with endless play and none of those screens so that they would have not difficulty.
But I never got to do it.
When I saw the theme for this Jam I was reminded about that. The one screen concept is the same as this KID MODE I was intending to implement.
The game contains several screens actually: tittle, options, game, etc.
I have interpreted the theme not as having a single screen but rather as having a single screen mode (kid mode). Here single screen is not a restriction but rather an improvement to increase the usability of the game for kids.
My nephews like it better than the 1st one, I hope other kids enjoy it also.
And they have not gotten trapped in credits either :)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
