New (rewritten) Classic 68k game from the BOH author.

MEMO is a card memory game, so the aim is to find all the pairs of cards that
have been laid face down randomly on the game board.
By means of a frame-shaped pointer that moves in 8 directions (up, down, left,
right and the diagonals), the player selects the cards. When a card is
uncovered, the player must locate its twin: in case of failure, the card is
hidden again; otherwise the pair is removed from the board.
When all the pairs are found, the player goes to the next round.

@DDNI

Thanks a lot for posting the news here. I should have done it myself, indeed

May I ask a little favour? Could you replace the URL, please? The "correct" one is: http://saimobvq.interfree.it/MEMO/ - the reason is that the files are only temporarily hosted on BOH's web space (because the Interfree ISP forces horrible banners to appear on the websites it hosts), but that could/will change in future.


@ TheCyberDruid & Leffmann

Thanks for the appreciation, have fun!

Hi saimo - I love it when classic games are remade for classic systems. It really makes me feel the Amiga scene is alive and kicking. The game looks great (I'll definitely be downloading it when I get home) and I love the dot-matrix scoreboard. Very nice

I can see what you mean.

Erm... no, sorry, that has gone. It was present in the old versions of the game (check out the headings in the SCREENSHOTS page).

@all

I've been reported that occasionally the program might render garbage in the HUD and then stop working. I've discovered that the problem occurs when the tilt mode kicks in and that the cause is a missing '#', which leads to a wrong address (it's amazing that things worked the same anyway, here). Tomorrow a fixed version will appear on Aminet.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Interesting. I get http://aminet.net/game/think/MEMO.lha when I click on the LHA link. Strange redirect stuff going on with Aminet.

Hi guys,

I wasn't aware of the Aminet problem. Or, better, I knew that Aminet has been having this problem for a while now (regardless of the archive), but usually one could download an archive with just a couple of attempts. Now I've tried some 20 times and the download worked only twice. I'll ask the admins, but I'm sure they already know.
In the meanwhile, I can send the game via email to anybody - just ask
And if somebody wants to redistribute the archive in any other way, I have no problem with that (provided that it is done at no cost and that the archive is not modified).

I've put it on the EAB file server in the folder 'Game/Archive' and I think it meets your requirements Didn't know that it is that bad (only 10% of the downloads work) with Aminet downloads. Maybe someone can offer some space for a direct download?

It's not a matter of webspace - I have plenty. It's just that I don't want the archive to be in 1000 places, so that if I ever update it again, it's easy to replace the outdated versions.
