Description from the packaging.

An animated game for the family.

Remember the satisfaction of spending an evening at home playing parlor games with family and friends? Matchboxes brings you that kind of fun once again in a classic contest of intuition and recall brought to exciting new life.

Lurking behind a grid of thirty-six numbered boxes is an animated menagerie of colorful characters and objects, each with a catchy tune all its own. You'll have to play your hunches and stretch your memory powers to the limit as you uncover the boxes two at a time in an effort to match up identical parts and solve a hidden word puzzle.

Variations include one or two player games, many colorful Matchboxes screens, and word puzzles that are frontwards, backwards, or scrambled. Choose your own tricky puzzles to stump your opponent, or let the computer do your dirty work for you. A delight for the eyes, ears, and intellect, Matchboxes will provide you with hours of mind wrenching fun.

  • Joystick controlled.
  • For one or two players.
