In Big Brain Academy you will meet Dr. Lobe the headmaster! He will take you through the registration which is as simple as adding your name to one of four profiles on the home screen, this will then become your profile. Big Brain Academy is a more child friendly version of Brain Training.
Going into your profile you can Practise, Test or Verus.
Practise allows you to practise various activities ready for the test. Here you can choose which catergory you would like to practise ~
You can choose a difficulty setting according to how you feel about each item.
*A Heavyweight - Touch the heaviest item
*B Pathfinder - Draw lines in order to move the animals
*C Bone Yard - Drop the bones to move the blocks.
*A Sound Bites - Listen to the sound then tap the correct animal
*B Flash Memory - Memorise numbers and symbols to enter into a keypad
*C Memo-random - Memorise images and touch the answers
*A Missing Link - Draw lines to connect the dots
*B CubeGame - Count the blocks not forgetting the ones you can't see!
*C Animal Lines - Connect the animals shown above.
*A Coin-parison - Touch the coins that are worth the most
*B Add Agency - Touch the cards that equal the amount of the top card
*C Written Math - Read and solve the equation
*A Shadow Shift - Touch the image that match the shadow
*B Get In Shape - Tap the pieces that make the shape
*C Matchmaker - Find the pairs among the cards
After practising the many items above it will then be time to test yourself and this will involve a series of different things from the practise section, they will be a random choice of each thing so be prepared!
The bright colours of this game make it more suitable for children than the other brain training games and my eight and ten year old sons don't have too much trouble with this, they do hoever get a bit frustrated when they miss something they then think was obvious to them!
I play it now and again and it does get your brain working and thinking about things.
You play the game in a time limit which makes you think faster therefore increasing you learning capacity! After completeing a challenge you will get your brain weight and a medal!
Summary: A great game for getting your brain working.
