The storyline behind this Windows Phone game has a blob of a character named Who losing his memory and needing help remembering his family members. In solving the various puzzle levels, not only will you be able to practice your memory skills but you will also help Who remember his family.
The primary menu for Amnesia of Who has options to start a new game, visit the gaming options and view the help screen.
Gameplay isn't very complicated. You are presented with a collection of circles that are face-down, concealing an icon. You will get a glimpse of the icons at the start of each gaming level and the object of the game is to find all the matching icons. Tap a circle to reveal the icon and then tap on another to reveal it. If they're a matched pair they'll stay face-up, if they aren't they'll flip back down. Once all the pairs are matched, you will advance to the next level and become one step closer to restoring Who's memory.
The game options are where you can set the game's difficulty and mute the game's sound/music. You have four gaming settings that you can combine to establish the game's overall difficulty. These four settings include:
- Peek: This setting allows you to reveal an icon and then close it.
- Tries: This setting will limit the number of match attempts you have in a game. If you fail eight matches, you fail the level.
- Time: This sets a game time of two minutes.
- Shuffle: After each wrong match, the coins or tokens will shuffle. You will get a brief glimpse at the coins once they are reshuffled before the flip face down again.
By default, only the Tries are on. When the Tries and Time are turned on, after completing a level you will see an "Extra" screen showing how many tries or how much time was remaining. Those balances will carry over to the next puzzle, which should become helpful in that number of coins to match increases as you advance through the game.
