Game Element: Pattern Recognition
JULY 31, 2014
Many games involve creating, identifying or predicting a pattern. Pattern recognition is the ability to recognize order in a chaos or to see relationships in disjointed information. Patterns can be found in concepts, ideas, and series of words, symbols, numbers, and images. They can also be found in behavior, economies and historical events. A simple example of a pattern recognition game is tic-tac-toe. Candy Crush is about recognizing and creating patterns.
