This is a quick memory game (http://www.cairnsgames.co.za/index.asp?inc=ffriends)I wrote for my children and their friends. On Saturday we had siz children at home. I felt I needed a break from my everyday job of getting my next game ready so I decided to write personalized Memory game for the kids.

I started working on the game at about 12:30 by taking pictures of each of the children. I then sat down and coded the game which I finished at about 14:30. Then I wrote the CDs for the kids to take home. When I wanted to print the CD covers my printer didn;t want to work. An hour and a half later I worked out that my parralel port was the problem which I sorted out by disabling and then reenabling the port :(.

Anyway I sent each kid home with their game and a set of photos that I had taken of them during the day.

So total development time on the game was 2 hours which included the development of the sound score, the digital photos and their manipulation, as well as the coding of the game.

Version 2 is available.

I've completely rewritten the game using GLXTreem components. Also more friends, difficulty levels and working menus.

The update was for my daughters 8th birthday party.

Let me know what you think please.
