Memory Train is an engaging, fast-moving memory game. Players watch objects move by on the screen as if they're riding on a train with "Spacey" the elephant. Once the objects are out of sight, they need to help Spacey recall the colours, shapes, and patterns of those objects.
This game is "language neutral," meaning no spoken words at all, which makes it a bit confusing at the start. But it's easy for kids to catch on with the on-screen prompts. Once they do, hang on! The game gets progressively faster.
Memory Train can help kids recognise shapes, colours, and patterns, as well as exercise their working memory as they attempt to recall certain details about objects that pass across their mobile device's screen. Memory Train is language-neutral (meaning, in this case, there are no words spoken), so it makes gameplay accessible to kids of all languages or with language processing delays.
The speed of the higher levels may be challenging for some kids, so this app could present an opportunity to practice handling stress, too. Memory Train is a terrific-looking app that presents some formidable memory challenges.
