Ok all you Twi-Hards, Twilighters, and Twilightmoms that just happen to be iPhone geeks, in this article I will highlight two Twilight games. The first game will be The Twilight Saga – Memory Quest, a classic memory game with huge Twilight additions. The second, The Twilight Saga – Eclipse Movie Game is an in depth quiz game that will hopefully challenge your knowledge about Eclipse.
To be fair to you, I will let you know right now that I have not read any of the Twilight books. However, these games are based on the movies so personally I’m ok not having read the books. I did, just to make it fair to all of you, have my sister, who has read all of the books, play both of these games and give me feedback.
The Twilight Saga – Memory Quest is very similar to the classic memory game. You flip one tile at a time trying to match them with like tiles. The way this game stands out from the standard old game is of course the Twilight theme. Each movie character is a level with eight puzzles. To unlock the next character/level you must first complete the puzzles for the ones that are already unlocked. The puzzles progressively get harder as the game moves on.
Once you beat all of the puzzles under a character a significant movie quote will pop up and the game will also let you know that you’ve unlocked a new character. There are over 90 different puzzles with 4 types of game variations. These variations are not extreme changes; they are all still memory based games with little twists. Mostly they just add coins or gems that can be used and collected.
The gameplay is very simple and straightforward. The graphics are very good especially for the iPhone. The music is a dark without much variation, but it does fit well with the game type and the theme. For $2.99, it’s up to you Twilight fans. I hope you enjoy it.
The second game, The Twilight Saga – Eclipse Movie Game, involves testing your Twilight knowledge. You can play as 1 of 21 characters from the movie, not to mention that there are over 480 questions. A few sample questions are: What color wolf does Leah turn into? And also, where were Bella and Edward when he told her that he loved her? The game has a few different types of questions ranging from standard text questions to picture questions.
GameHouse developed both games so each game has a similar feel. The graphics are of the same caliber and the music is really close if not the same. However, the Eclipse game is, in my opinion, a little better. If you are a true Twilight fan then you will want to test your movie knowledge, not match tiles that really don’t have much to do with the actually series. Additionally, the Eclipse game has a multiplayer mode where you and three friends can battle it out to prove who knows the most about Twilight. Oh yeah and the Eclipse game is only $0.99. Have fun you Twi-Hards!
