Also known as Brain age: Concentration training – I always wondered if they would make a new one and to my surprise they did. I enjoyed the first brain training puzzle game, so much so that if I couldn’t sleep I would play the Sudoku games to no end.
The new Devilish Brain training is so much more exciting and has so much to offer. The game focuses on building the player’s working memory and concentration by working through a series of exercises 5 minutes at a time. As you become better on a particular level you will be bumped up to the next level and if you fail a higher level, depending on your score, the programing will keep you on that level to practice or bump you down one level to continue building your working memory.
As you move up in levels so does the difficulty of the puzzles. And the more you play the more puzzles you unlock. The game is designed to not over exert your brain and when you have reached the 5 limit of puzzles you have played then the game will automatically stop you from accessing more and will insist on you exiting the game and logging in the next day.
Developers Nintendo SPD were clever in how they portrayed Dr Kawashima – he can be a bit annoying at times but every few days you will be required to “attend” a seminar which will educate you with regards to why this game and its puzzles are so important and the benefits of playing continues.
I enjoy puzzle games in general, but this one definitely takes the cake.
If you enjoy them too, them go and grab your copy of Devilish Training. You will not be disappointed.
