Trivial Memory Christmas
We never realized how much we hate Christmas music.
Last month, developers capitalized on Halloween with a handful of spooky apps. With Christmas on the way, they hope to spread some cheer with holiday games, the first being Trivial Memory Christmas. Anyone that attended kindergarten will instantly know how to play; you simply match two of the same images by flipping tiles, all the while listening to annoying MIDI versions of popular Christmas music. Not exactly the best of games, but hey, it's free.
We don't hate Trivial Memory Christmas. We just have a college reading level. Aimlessly flipping tiles and using our noggins to remember where that snowman or Santa Claus was takes us back to when we were smelly kids, but cannot hold our interests today. Not even a two-player mode, where we take turns matching images, keeps us entertained long.
It also doesn't help that the music makes us want to hit someone with glass ornaments. Although shoving holiday tunes into the game was a novel idea, the MIDI versions of these classics have us reaching for the mute button.
Kids, of course, will probably love this game, and since it's free, you have nothing to lose downloading it. It keeps track of high scores and comes with three difficulty levels that add more or less cards, so there's an incentive to keep playing. However, Trivial Memory Christmas is much too bland for our tastes. Those candy canes do look yummy, though.
What's Hot: It's free, keeps track of your best scores, two-player mode, three difficulties.
What's Not: Matching images was fun when we were three, music grows repetitive.
