When you play the game it brings up three different sets of pictures and tunes. It changes sets each time you play the game. On the Cassette version, after the third set, it does not change.

This is a scan of a commercial disk complete with box images and serial number. I found what must be a beta version with most if not all of the same melodies, but no title screen and most animated tiles are different. The PacMan image was likely removed for commercial release. Beta is nicer in other ways such as when "railroad" tune plays, the tile is a train puffing smoke but on this release you get green bunnies hopping and one of the bunny animation frames has its nose chopped off. More melodies I didn't get b4 are mary had a little lamb and happy birthday to you (if your name is 2 syllables). I'm excelling at 2 comments per title on same day.

Genre is the Memory Match kind, here is one of the best and Votes agree. Br0derbund was an Atari powerhouse, this simple type of thing wasn't their usual style.

Tiles are animated in four-color, guess the hidden word makes for expanded gameplay, and there are also musical melodies for each tile. One or two I don't recognize, there's row row row your boat, oh my darling clementine, I've been working on the railroad, twinkle twinkle little star, the old gray mare she ain't what she used to be?, London Bridge is falling down, jingle bells (dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh), my country tis of thee, and pop goes the weasel. First card "calls out" the opening part of the melody and if you Match that card then it "answers" with the 2nd half melody. Card animations r cutesy too, there is PacMan eating a blue ghost for example, and that most famous home video of BigFoot taking a stroll. Screenshot on the games list has what looks like a SeaHorse and my version has no seahorse? so there may be more than one version. There's Demo Play too.
