A Card Game worth Playing!

Matatu is an addictive gaming app that offers you the chance to play the exciting Ugandan card game of Matatu on your Smartphone. It is a simple game that is played online with a large number of players. The layout of this gaming app is intuitively designed and has a nice feel to it with the buttons for the games neatly laid out on the home screen of the app. It has a wooden theme to begin with, which gives it the outlook of a tree house. I found this game to be quite addictive and fun to play and had great enjoyment in beating the competition I faced from players from all over the world.


Matatu offers up three types of card games, the classic version, the 'Joker' and the '2 Player' game. All these games are very entertaining and can provide you a great deal of joy and fun. Each game needs to be played between at least two players. The Classic and Joker games can be played without requiring online players. For the 2 Player game, you will have to send a request to the online players to play the game with you. This can be done by tapping on the 'Online' option that is located at the top left corner of the home screen of this card game app. There are always plenty of online players available and you will immediately find someone to play Matatu with.

All the three games of Matatu are very addictive in nature and once you start playing them you won't be able to stop. You will be having so much fun that you won't even feel the time passing by and would remain glued to your Smartphone screen. I had a blast playing each one of the three game offerings that this card game app provided me. In the beginning, I lost a lot of the games that I played but slowly and gradually, with experience, I started winning. Soon, it became a literal joy to beat players that were more experienced at playing this game than me.


Matatu has a custom shop available for you as well. You can enter the shop by tapping on the 'Customize' option that is located at the bottom right corner of the app's home screen. There are plenty of nice themes present in the shop. You can pick the one that you like then tap on the 'Apply Theme' to set it up. It really is that simple. I tried all the three themes that were on offer and found the modern theme to be the best one among them. It had a nice blue background which I particularly liked.

One of the best features of Matatu is the help section that it offers. The option for it is located on the top right corner of the home screen of the app. In this section, you will find the tutorials on how to play each game offered by this card game app. These tutorials are very interactive and descriptive in nature and explain each aspect of the game in a very precise manner. Moreover, they also offer up tips to you on how to win each game. I was able to learn and understand each and every trick of the three games of Matatu by watching these tutorials.
