[Main Features]: This Java applet implements a fully configurable picture matching game. Test your memory with your favorite images.

[Execution Tips]: Click on one photo first and then click on the second one. If they match, both will disappear. Otherwise, they will fold again. To start a new game, click on the 'New' button. Click 'Show' to give up.

[Download and Installation Guide]: Be sure to read our FAQ 1 about license agreement before you use this program. Download and uncompress the file under your web directory. You can use the configurator in the next section or do it by yourself as follows:
Use a file editor (e.g. WordPad) to open matchit.html and copy the code segemnt between starting and ending APPLET tags into your desirable HTML file. Supply your own photos and type in their filenames. If you have a game, say, 4 rows and 5 columns, with each photo 50 x 50, you will have a display area 5 x 50 wide and 4 x 50 tall. Remember to add 15 to width and 70 to height for the display area. So, you should set applet 'width' to 265 and 'height' to 270.
