THE NEW STUFF

- SuperMemory can now be run on older Macs with System 6 and a B/W monitor.
- A few new sounds have been added to The Simpsons tile set
- My E-mail address and web site has changed.

THE GAME OF MEMORY

This game is a rehash of the "Concentration" tile game - but with a few lumps of challenge (and audio) added.

Pairs of tiles are scrambled and placed face down. The player selects a tile, then attempts to select the matching tile from the remaining lot.

If a match is made, the selected tiles are removed from the game and it's that player's turn again.

If the player fails to make a match, the tiles are placed face down again in their previous positions, and it's the next player's turn.

THE GAME OF SUPER-MEMORY

Instead of searching for pairs of tiles (Twins), you may select Triplets, Quads, Quints or Sextets from the "Level" menu.

In these "super" modes, after the first tile is selected, the player is allowed to select tiles until a tile does not match the first selection.
