Controls

In the game you walk around in a nature scenery maze looking for wooden boxes to open. You click on the "Open" button to view what is inside the box. Each box contains an object. Each object has a match hidden somewhere in another box. Your goal is to find the matches. 
If you think you know where a matching object is, click the "Get Match" button and hurry to the other object. You only have a limited time to reach the object. If you are too late, you'll lose the pair.
Tips:
Try to remember the surroundings.
Don't rush too fast.
Don't open the boxes too many times or they will count as "Excessive Openings" and you will lose points.
After you've found all remaining matches, you'll be able to Save your results and view them in different charts.

Click on "View Results" from Start screen, after that you can choose from three different charts.
Scores statistics show your total points (blue dots) and bonus points specifically (red dots). Your total points depends on several factors, total time, missed or lost pairs and excessive openings.
If you follow your progress over time, the red to green bar on the right helps you see if your performance change. Higher up on green, better results. Low results could indicate that a person might be tired, unfocused or too impulsive during the game.
Match statistics show how many of the total pairs you have matched (blue column) and have lost (red column).
First bar to the left (red to green) visualizes total pairs, higher is better. The second (green to red) visualizes total losses, lower is better.
Excessive openings statistics show your total time (blue dots) and how many excessive openings you made (red dots). It also shows how many misses were made (grey dots).
First left, green-blue-red bar visualizes time spent. Spending much time is not necessarily a bad thing, it may help to memorize the objects and surroundings properly. The second, green-red bar visualizes excessive openings and misses. The lower the better. A high nr of excessive openings and misses may indicate impulsiveness, being tired or lack of concentration.

In Where Was It? there are also two small variants of  classic table versions included.
