The goal is simple: Memorize as many icons as possible and gradually upgrade your palace. The number of icons to remember increases after every successful attempt, raising the difficulty. Level up to unlock new palaces for your start screen and show them off to your friends! Too busy? Then try playing Against The Clock and be the fastest to memorize 10 random icons in chronological order.


- Playable on your iPhone and iPad
- 150 uniquely animated icons
- 10 different palaces for your startscreen to unlock
- Two Game Modes
- Two Themes
- Minimal design
- Calming and beautiful soundscape

Needs a Collective Aspect

Sweet box

The animations are the centerpiece of this game, because they're so beautiful and interesting. There needs to be a library of some sort where you can go back and watch the animations again. Maybe once you've successfully remembered it in a sequence, then it appears in your library where you can go and see it there out of the game modes.

Build your memory


Great game for memory. Found even more challenge and fun playing with a 9 year old on my team. I taught her to create a story she taught me to use different story telling and to go faster and faster! What fun!

No story. No Narrative. No fun.

Skip Deluca

The animations are well done, but if you want to look at beautiful iconography go to dribbble or some other site. You don’t need to pay to simply look at icons and remember them. Not a game at all and thus not fun. No story, no narrative, no point.
