One picture is worth one thousand words

2.0 26 May 2005

Diaporama picture matching game.


Developer website: Denis Dionne

Once upon a time there was a guy who downloaded tons of pictures from the internet. He saved them on his hard disk first, then wrote them on CD-ROMs. Occasionally, he inserts one of his CD-ROMs into his computer and watches his pictures. Then, one day, he thought of a better way to look at those pictures than just sitting passively in front of his computer screen, as they were displayed one at a time. He added elements of strategy to the old diaporama concept, and the 'One Picture Is Worth One Thousand Words' game was born.

The goal of the game is to match a pattern built with 4 rectangles, by manipulating 4 pictures located in the center of the screen. The catch is that they are not static pictures, but diaporamas. You actually see the current picture of each diaporama. To complete your task, two moves are available: you can advance to the next picture of a disporama, or you can swap two diaporamas' positions. Complete instructions are available in the game's menus.

The complete version allows you to use your own pictures. Customizing your pictures consists of resizing and renaming them to the game's format. That can be easily done with shareware products found on Internet. Complete instructions about pictures files creation are unlocked with registration.
