You will probably like this game if you like memory games.

zTappy is simple action puzzle game. On a 5*5 matrix symbols appear every few seconds. Selecting all symbols of the same type will remove them from the game. But if you tap any symbol which corresponds with the symbol shown in the middle of the game board the input is blocked for a few seconds. As the game gets faster accompanied by rapid changes of the middle symbol this is very dangerous. If the matrix is filled the game is lost.

zTappy is a mixture between a memory type game and an action game. It is good fun but a bit simple to really keep you playing for long. But this simple concept makes it suitable for kids and due to the nice graphics with the easily recognizable images zTappy can be recommended for them. But also adults will have fun beating the highscores in a game or two.
