More Search Engine Games: Memory with Yahoo! Images

Apr 26, 2005 • 1:47 pm | comments (3) by twitter | Filed Under Other Yahoo Topics

Yesterday Ben (Phoenix) blogged about a cool game called "GUESS-the-GOOGLE". So, I started a thread at SEW forums to get some discussion and Gary Price replied with another *very cool* memory game that uses Yahoo! Images. I've played it and is a lot of fun as well. The game's instructions aren't in English, but Gary was kind enough to provide ones for us:

1) Enter a search term, let's say fruit
2) Select how many images you want to have to remember (1-28)
3) Click "Go"

Boxes appear. Click one, remember the image, and now click to find the same image elsewhere on the grid.

Have fun!

Hi! I'm the guy that developed the memory game. Glad you guys liked it! The game is an ongoing experiment where I try to create a new user experience from existing information. At its current state, the game is very primitive. No score, no "end", no image preload etc. But it is a first step. I plan to enhance it and I will also try to create other user experience via the Yahoo! API in the future.
