I have both FishDog Match and Jigsaw, and thoroughly enjoy both applications. As a retired teacher, I can see the value of these "games" for kids, as they work on their memory and concentration. As an adult, this is enjoyable for the "kid" in me, and helps me to keep my brain sharp as well. I really appreciate the developer's efforts here, and the personal response I received from him when asking for assistance in my download. He cares, and I appreciate this even more. Nice job!

This is a very simple game of memory, like you might play with a deck of cards. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but is easy for a small child to use, and would develop their mousing skills.

The cards, when turned over, display either a number, a picture, or a letter, accompanied by the sound of the card turning over. I found the graphics a bit smaller than I would like to see for children.

It would be nice if future versions would let you choose if you want only pictures, or letters, or numbers. Or perhaps have the player match capital and small letters, or numbers with a corresponding card representing the number pictorially (e.g. five stars on one card to correspond with the number five on the matching card.) This could be a good little piece of educational software if it had those features. I'm not complaining though; the application is nice just as it is.

At any rate, the application weighs in at just under a megabyte, which these days is quite economical. It's nicely done, and offered free. It quits when you tell it to and starts right up when you double click its icon, and doesn't freeze. Well done.

"have the player match capital and small letters"
Great idea, I second this!

I also thank you for coming up with the idea of matching numbers with cards representing the number pictorially. Seriously, I am impressed about the thoughtfulness of this review.
