Memory Lane on PlayStation 4 from Playstige Interactive is a new take on the classic card game. Learn more in our Memory Lane review!
Memory Lane from Playstige Interactive is a nee video game take on the classic card game of memory. For those of you who, for some reason, don’t have a clue about what I’m talking about, in memory, players take turns flipping over sets of cards placed face down as they try to find cards with the same images in order to form pairs. The game can also be a single-player experience, and it’s a game that is suited for players of all ages and skill levels. It’s the type of game that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, helping all players develop their memory skills.
The controls are easy to understand since all you’ll have to worry about is moving a cursor around the screen as you press the X button to flip over cards. Once you flip a card and get a look at the image it was hiding, you’ll have to select another card to flip so that you can hopefully find a pair. Repeat until there are no cards left on the screen so that you can complete the stage and move on to a slightly harder set of pairs.
You can customize your experience by selecting between the seven available background images – white, pink, purple, brown, blue, red, and orange. The color you choose will be the predominant one, and the background could be of geometrical shapes, flowers, leaves, or a calming landscape with a big blue sky. There are also four themes for the card sets you will get, and you can pick one of them before starting your run.
Pausing the action for a bit will allow you to learn some facts about the human brain and memory. For example, did you know that your brain generates around 12-25 watts of electricity, which is enough to power a low wattage LED light bulb? Or that the human brain can store up to 2.5 petabytes of data? That’s 2,500,000 gigabytes, which means that, depending on the capacity of your smartphone, that could be around the storage capacity of, say, 40,000 smartphones!
As for the trophies, as has been the case for other games from Playstige Interactive, Memory Lane has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy. The Platinum is an easy one to get, as well as a fast one to unlock since it shouldn’t take you more than 20-30 minutes tops to complete all of the objectives. The trophy names – and descriptions – won’t give you any hints as to how you can unlock the trophies, but as long as you play and progress through each difficulty level, you’ll eventually see that Platinum trophy pop.
If you’re a fan of memory card matching games, then Memory Lane is a good option on PlayStation 4. The game is out right now for a budget $3.99 asking price, offering endless hours of gameplay, as well as a new shiny Platinum trophy to add to your collection.
