Munich, Germany, January 19, 2010 - Brilliantly simple - and simply brilliant: Ravensburger Digital, part of well-known games&toy maker Ravensburger Group, is to publish different variants of the world-famous classic memory training game - the original memory® - for iPhone and iPod Touch, starting now with the fascinating memory® Classic and memory® Kids on the iTunes App Store. In its own special way, memory® allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to exercise their memorization and concentration skills with memory® anytime and anywhere, either alone or with gaming partners.
Back to the roots: memory® Classic represents the original Ravensburger quality - even in the game's most modern reincarnation on iPhone and iPod Touch, players get to enjoy the familiar gameplay of the Ravensburger games that is so popular and successful world-wide. memory® Kids includes the picture selection from the great original for the youngest geniuses. Thus, an adventure begins for the whole family, be it at home or on long journeys, anywhere and anytime - with good retentiveness and strategy, even the smallest players can run rings around the grown-ups.
Off to a new start: Both variants of the unique memory training game include a selection of exciting game modes. In duel mode, two players compete according to the classic rules of memory® to determine who is the true mastermind. In single-player mode, on the other hand, speed is what counts; the better and the faster the player memorizes the cards and completes the game, the more points are awarded. The exciting adventure mode also requires enormous concentration, as fans of brainteasers play through several rounds with an ever-increasing number of cards. Moreover, three levels of difficulty are included to guarantee heaps of fun for both young and old. Local and world-wide high-score tables ensure that the game never grows boring, as iPhone and iPod Touch users can compete for the highest ranking worldwide in both memory® Classic and memory® Kids.
memory® Classic and memory® Kids are available now for iPhone and iPod Touch on the iTunes App Store at a price of $ 1.99 each.
