Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ploppy Pairs (2022) is a card matching puzzle game. Along with the sanitary humour, it's a simple and approachable game for very young players. The SharePlay via FaceTime means you can play and connect with family members online or in the same room.

Play involves working through a series of card-matching levels on each of the five islands. The cards are themed for each island and levels get steadily more difficult by increasing the number of cards to match.

You can't fail the game as it's designed for young players. But as you improve your accuracy and memorisation you are reward for completing levels with fewer taps. This unlocks a new skin by reaching the best score possible.

The result is a simple funny for game that's a great to play with very young children.
