Based on the underwhleming number of responses (ZERO) it is quite obvious AARP does not care....

I just have to say - this sucks.  I play Metro Match every day.  I have tried the "replacement" - it sucks.

 

It:

 

-is too small to see - they offer an enlargement, but that interferes with game play if you need to use it

-when you click on the tile it often does not flip - you lose time and there is nothing you can do

-the time of the game is way too short for an older person.

 

All I can think of is that AARP's game guru is 25 years old, and does not have slower reflexes, weakened eyesight, and their brain moves a little slower.  I find it insulting that AARP, who is supposed to be our champion, would change to something so insensitive to their target audience.

 

When Metro Match is gone, I am gone from AARP.

I have been looking for a replacement game, and the only one I found close, is this:

Will miss seeing the top scores, but it seems that they have taken down our game, 10 days early.

I am going to miss the games I have enjoyed very much. I found a couple that aren't too bad, but Bubble Dragons...half the view is covered so you can't see what you are shooting at. I don't like the Jogsaw puzzle game that is staying; the pieces are very much NOT user friendly from a visual perspective.

I really like the Arkadium Freecell Solitaire that will be discontinued. I have tried the two 'replacing' it but they are not as good. They are kind of klunky, not a visually easy to use, and/or slow.  I hope you come up with some viable solutions or games. 

 

Also when will you come up with a AARP game app for mobile phones or more suitable mobile views when logged into your website from mobile phones? 

 

Thank you!

Eggs Blast is no where near the game that Eggs Classic is.  Please have the developers work on a new Eggs game more like the one being removed.

Ok so this is my question. Flash is being dicontinued by Abobe. The games that are now available using Flash will end. Obviously the companies who devloped these current games must realize that the flash platform will no longer be available for their games so why aren't they also changing over to a new platform? If they are indeed changing to a new platform to deliver their games then why doesn't AARP use that platform and thus keep these game?
