Collexions Review – Main Takeaways
Collexions is a pattern recognition game. There are three different modes and you need to try and create matches of 3 cards out of the 12 displayed cards. As you create matches, those cards are removed and new ones displayed in their place. The game had a useful info screen to provide you with a heads up on what might be considered a match – ie 3 cards with 3 circles on them (one set in gray, one set in black, one set in white) or 3 cards with squares on them (one with three black squares, one with two black squares, one with one black square).
I found the ‘Shuffle a Card’ option in the menu to be a lifesaver if I could not find any matches. Wish they had included a shortcut key for that option.
Three modes are available: Classic Mode is a 4 minute timed game where you see how many matches you can make. There is a one point penalty each time you enter an incorrect collexion. Speed Contest is a 1 minute timed game. No penalties for incorrect collexions. Memory Quest is a 4 minutes timed game. The full game grid is only show for a few seconds. One point penalty for incorrect collexions.
Collexions Review – Conclusion and Overall Rating
I would give my Collexions review 4.25 stars. I really enjoyed the classic game mode and found it to be quite addictive. I also though speed contest mode was fun. Memory quest mode was very frustrating to me because they only show the full card set one time and you play for four minutes. If they showed the full set every 30 seconds or even every minute I would have enjoyed it more. As it is, it made me feel stupid, so I quit halfway through the first memory quest game.
