About the Book

5 General Game Licenses are included in this book - a savings of $300 if purchased separately!

Discover how to create online Memory Matching games using the methods in this single chapter from the Phaser Game Starter Kit Collection. When you finish these tutorials and bonus courses, you will have a production pipeline ready to create as many different "Memory Matching" games as your imagination can dream of!

This is a "mega-book" with 5 different types of Memory Matching and a MahJong game prototype. Two games were written in Phaser v3.16+ - an RPG Math Game for "pre-schoolers" and a New Age "Simple Shaman™". Two games were written in Phaser v2.x.x from the Mozart Music Match Suite - an audio "hidden pairs" memory game, and a "music motif" (sequence memory) game, and a "single-player" MahJong prototype game in both Phaser v2.x.x and v3.16+ APIs.

Included with your purchase, you'll also get EULAs, bonus content, download examples, and source code references on how to do every single thing in this game design workbook, so you can copy and paste any examples into your own productions and then modify those resources for your own purposes.

I would like to guide you in creating several styles of Memory Matching in Pairs - both hidden and open - and Sequence Memory game mechanics. We will use these game mechanics, mechanisms and the development methods discussed from the Phaser Game Prototypes. By the end of this workbook, you should have several fully functional Memory Matching game - not just a copy of my games, but your very own products using your own gaming assets. There is a supporting website where you can download the bonus content included with your workbook's purchase.  

This comprehensive guide will teach you how to: 

- Use the Phaser JS Gaming Framework as either v2.x.x or v3.16+.

- How to integrate "Memory Matching" game mechanics into other game genres such as educational, math, MahJong, and 2-Player or Artificial Intelligence bots!

- Deploy your game(s) as a "Progressive Web Application" or "Single Page Web Application" for any device.

- Analyze current business demand for this game's genre, how and where to deploy it and what others have done.

- Automatically generate various dynamic game boards.
