This game may appeal to anyone four years and up. Mimic helps you practice memory skills. The computer plays a short series of tones and the player tries to duplicate the tones. A score is kept to show how well the player is performing. This game is freeware.
Mimic is a game of remembering a sequence of tones. The game starts when you press the "Start to Play" button. The "My Turn" window backdrop changes from white to light yellow, you hear three tones and the buttons light up as those tones are played. Then it is your turn. The "Your Turn" window changes from white to light yellow and you have three chances to enter the sequence you heard. If you are successful, the computer will play the previous sequence plus one more tone and then it is your turn again. Windows on the page provide information on your score this game, the number of errors this game, the highest score for this session and feedback on your performance for this game.
There is a menu pick (Let Mary Play) to have the computer play "Mary had a little lamb" and you can watch the tones being played.
There is also a menu pick (Set Mary as Sequence) to set the sequence to "Mary had a little lamb" so that you can play to the end of the sequence if you are careful. Your performance here does not count towards your highest score.
Mimic remembers the player's name and their highest score. When you start Mimic, you are asked to type your name if you have not played before or to select your name and click on OK. You can change players between games.
