A fun memory game with galaxy pictures! Work on your memory as you compare and contrast galaxy types. Turn on sound for cool music when you win! ;-)

I just get a black screen when I click the link. Do I have to press any button to start?

When I went to the page, it started to automatically install Adobe Shockwave 'compatability components'.
Now I have a page with blue tiles with galaxies drawn on them. If one clicks on a tile, then a real
picture of a galaxy appears, which one then has to match with another. Good fun!

So, you might need to install software to see and use the page. This of course brings up the question
of the compatability of computers and their installed software...

If the software don't work, you could always try the old-fashioned way ;D

Oh and here's another one, or is it the same?

A little more work, but perhaps even a little more fun ;)

I have been trying this out and there seems to be a problem on my Mac.  I clicked on the "memory game" link and the site came up but the page was black - this was using Safari and OmniWeb browsers. Using Firefox showed a message that the Shockwave plugin needed to be installed. I downloaded the latest version and rebooted and now things are a lot better.

I can access most of the games except for the memory game - I get the message "Missing Shockwave Decompression XTRA".

Will see if I can find this missing piece and report back.
