MemoryWars, a TinyWars-themed mini-game of Memory Cards is now available as a free-to-play Android app on the Google Play Store.
Developed and refined by Bizurk Software over the course of January, this year, MemoryWars is a TinyWars-infused twist on the classic card game of Memory. With upto 12 levels to beat, players may compete with A.I or at least one other player to earn in-game currency and build a library of Collectable Cards featuring TinyWars’ various cute, rare and deceptive characters.
A Lucky Card based reward system, Health Points, special cards, boss fights and ‘insane levels’ are also prevalent. ‘The purpose of creating MemoryWars was so that we could exercise our programming skills over New Year’s.’ explain developers Bizurk Software. ‘We wanted to get our feet wet with a few other projects, and building out an experimental mini-game was the most appropriate option.’
Bordering at 10-50 downloads with a rating of 4.5/5 on the Play Store, MemoryWars has admittedly provided the team with an opportunity to experiment with Virtual Currency, in-game Collectables and the use of special effects/animations plus sound to enhance fun. Several of these ideas, especially those of cute animations, are now being carried over to the main TinyWars game.
Following the successful launch of its free-to-play PC/Android game-play prototype in November, last year, TinyWars is currently having its complete narrative/gameplay experience developed. Cutscenes, user interfaces and various assets are being created for the same in preparation for a planned release of its vertical slice later this year.
Additionally, the Prototype is also due for its final update later this month — bringing previously non-functional features such as touch zooming on its Android version and improved animations/visual effects to the fray. A sample of these improved effects can be seen attached herewith.

Developed by Bizurk Software, TinyWars is an upcoming game of the Tower Defence genre for PC, Android & iOS devices.
A journey of growth — both of characters involved and players themselves — its narrative encompasses the kingdom of Tiny and its inhabitants, as they journey through a world of constant conflict and learn of things far greater than themselves. Following the tale of one such inhabitant, a young girl named Mary, said narrative will illustrate her pursuit of justice from those that belittle her as she journeys to save her Kingdom for good.
Players will be tasked with strategic thinking, dynamic unit management and a plethora of boss fights across varying degrees of challenge. All the aspects of this Tower Defence element, although not ground breaking, will ingeniously parallel the aspects of the story and the concept of growing as an individual. A prototype of these mechanics is now available for download.
Although not representational of the main game, the purpose of the prototype lies in providing fans, followers and tower defense enthusiasts with a snippet of the TinyWars game-play experience, while also assisting the development process with user-related feedback.
The months that ensued after the game’s bare-bones prototype from 2015 were graphic & artwork intensive, with the team designing original assets, primary characters, animations and even recording a live orchestra for the main game in order to provide it with its own flair.
A large portion of 2016 meanwhile had been devoted to the development of TinyWars’ game-play prototype. Prior to its release, a closed beta test of the same transpired between the months of October-November, the same year, with all gathered user feedback being used towards the development of the main game.
Despite the prototype being devoid of any narrative elements and fleshed out visuals, the team is currently working towards releasing a more representational vertical slice of TinyWars’ primary experience by 2017. Comprising of a portion of TinyWars’ soundtrack and early concept art meanwhile, a pre-gameplay demo is now also available for download.
