Game Element: Pattern Recognition

Kapp Notes

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. In every discipline, patterns are crucial for predicting the future, estimating the right course of action and determining diagnostic steps. Candy Crush is about recognizing and creating patterns.
