Welcome to Pair Panic - extreme pair matching. Your high scores are limited only by your memory. You have one minute to hunt a full deck of cards for matching pairs. Pairs earn bonus time and points. Create pair combo's to earn massive damage, I mean points. Remember, find pairs, don't panic!


I always played Pelmanism (aka Pairs) not realising it's a great way to train your memory, I just enjoyed the game. Using a full deck of cards it's typically a two player game where you take turns to hunt for pairs. I wanted to convert this into a single player experience without having the annoyance of shuffling a deck of card's. Of course I didn't just want a card shuffling sim so I added a combo system, levels and mini-mission's to create a compulsive experience. Pair Panic was born.


  • It really is the ultimate memory test, if you are like a magician and can remember the position of all 52 cards in a deck, prepare for the ultimate scores.
  • Compulsive, with loads of levels and mini-challenges.
