Game Screen

 
  • Tap on the unmatched tile to flip it over
  • When a tile is flipped, it reveals the shape, letter, or number underneath it while the name of the tile is spoken
  • If no match is made after two consecutive flips, the tiles will flip back
  • Matched tiiles will "jingle" when a match is mate and remain flipped over and highlighted
  • Each successful match is tracked in the progress meter at the top of the screen
  • Your current sore and the current game play time is displayed at the bottom of the screen

Completing a Game

When a game is completed, the "Win" screen is presented, showing your current score, and time. If you beat either the high score, or best time, a "stamp" will appear indicating such. Should you not beat one or either of these, congratulatory stamps will appear instead.

Again, large buttons allow the selection of a new game easily.

Available Stamps

Below are the list of congratulatory stamps that will encourage your child to continue playing and learning.
