Matrix Game is actually a series of three apps developed by MyFirstApp.com. These games are designed to help develop visual perceptual skills. The games are progressively more challenging as you move from Matrix Game 1 to Matrix Game 3. I typically use Matrix Game 3, but all three apps are great. It just depends on the age and skill level of the child to determine the right one.
Here are a few screenshots:

In each app, you simply drag the picture on the left side of the screen to the corresponding square on the grid. This requires visual perceptual, visual scanning, and visual motor skills. In addition, within each app, each level gets progressively more challenging. Overall, I think this is great OT tool!
