First came Sudoku, the fiendishly addictive puzzle, and now Britain is about to be hit by another Japanese craze: the 10-minute mental work out. Mindscape's Brain Trainer will be the first PC game to bring brain training to office workers, laptop commuters and home PC users. This new game lets you have fun while improving your brain power and can help enhance your performance when it comes to everyday tasks. You can play a daily range of activities and review your progress in order to see whether or not you can improve your memory, concentration and logic skills. You'll never get bored as this game comes with an infinite number of questions.
This is a simple program, which, as the name suggests, helps to train your brain in various skills, including logic, numeracy, literacy, spacial and memory. There are three different types of task to each skill.
The main feature is the daily workout, which takes about 10 minutes, and involves doing a predetermined task from each skill. This is scored on speed and accuracy, and as you get better scores, the difficulty level increases. There is a progress report, where your scores are added to a rolling graph, and it is encouraging to see scores improving (I've done about two weeks worth now, and definite upward trend, albeit with a few hopeless dips!)
Apart from the daily workout, you can practice all the different tasks, which come in five levels.
This is a simple, but fun program, which is likely to have some enduring entertainment value. It's a little like doing the morning crossword / Sudoku.
