Out Of Memory is a strategy oriented puzzle game for Windows Phone 8 devices that has you managing computer memory. You are tasked with allocating computer memory to a variety of computer programs. The goal, manage your computer memory for as long as possible.
Out Of Memory is a simply drawn up game for Windows Phone but does not lack challenge. There are several types of programs that will impact your memory grid in different ways. While we have plenty of puzzle games for our Windows Phone, Out Of Memory offers a unique style of gaming that has a certain amount of appeal.
When you first launch Out Of Memory, you will be taken through a series of tutorial screens on game play. Once you have completed the tutorial you will jump into game play. If you need a refresher, the tutorial can always be launched from up under the three-dot menu.
Out Of Memory Tutorial, Gaming and Scoring Pages
The game screen has a five by five grid that represents your computer memory. Every few seconds a program will appear at the bottom of the screen that you will need to place on the memory grid. The program will require a short period to run on the grid, after which it will close and free up the memory for another program to use. The goal is to place and run as many programs as possible without running out of memory.
To place a program, just tap on the adjacent memory grids or tap/drag your finger across the grid.
To help keep things interesting you will run into a variety of programs that will affect your memory differently. You have the standard program that stays in place while the timer runs out. You also have an unstable program that will shift around the memory grid and a corrupt program that will expand on the memory grid. You can box these programs in and contain their movement and growth with the stable, stand programs.
Out Of Memory has an online leaderboard for bragging rights and support for both dark/light Windows Phone themes. The game has a bit of a casual pace and is not a bad gaming option to pass the time with. I found that the more I played Out Of Memory, the more the game grew on me.
