joyeFor The TwinOne of these things is just like the other. One of these things, oh it belongs. Can you tell me which thing is just like the other, before I finish this song? If you just had a flashback to a kinder, gentler time of your childhood spent in hypnotic rapture before a television, take For the Twin for a spin. In this simple yet addictive fast-paced matching puzzle game from Hybrid Mind, find your example's identical twin from among a panoply of dancing aliens. The colorful whimsy and offbeat electronica just might get your own toes tapping.

Just take a look at the gyrating creature in the upper right corner of your game screen. Somewhere among the creatures, all similar yet each different in its own way, is your twin target. Click on it as quick as you can, but beware. If you click on the wrong creature, you get a five second penalty added to your time. After doing all ten levels in a challenge, you'll receive a star based on how fast you finished. Can you get a gold star in all six challenges? Because I can't. I'm just saying.

If you're thinking that the similarity to Sesame Street's famous game means that this one is going to be easy or "just for kids", you're in for a surprise. Depending on the challenge, the creatures do all kinds of blatantly unfair things, like jumping around, not facing the right direction, even occasionally standing partially in front of the target twin, rendering it impossible to tell it's your target until one of them moves. In order to get a gold star, you must average a mere 3 seconds per creature, which means that even one misclick renders a gold star basically impossible. In the later challenges, even getting a bronze star can take a few tries. That's right: a game about matching squishy rabbity creatures legitimately earned the high difficulty tag. Imagine that.

its a very cute game, but i have it very hard to believe that you can get under 30s in the last two levels.

The gioopy squirdlemip mushnick goomucks and squeeemolahlay mock me with their mad dance moves.

Which is entertaining, yet matching is no amazing new concept and silly looking doodles drawn in flash don't give a strong impression that great care was taken to make and polish For The Twin.

As you say, surprisingly difficult in the upper levels! And the artwork is hilarious. Sometimes simple can be good.
