Brainiversity 2

Get your brain and mental fitness tiptop with Mac game Brainiversity 2. This play will get your mind working quickly and, hopefully, efficiently. Do your daily exercises to keep your gray matter strong and flexible, and chart your progress as you go along.

At first glance this play, or should I say workout, appears easy and not very challenging, but when you do not finish your test in time, you know you have to work harder and faster. You begin by putting in your birthday. I had an eight year old try it, thinking the game would adjust the questions to that level. However, the questions are the same as the adult level. Some of the tests are easy for kids, but others like putting the words in the correct order are too obscure for children. The words make up proverbs or sayings kids and some foreign-born people may not have come across yet.

There are 24 games you play in 90 seconds. The games range from colored shapes, memorizing to simple math. You earn brain bucks to unlock new games and also to retry games you must pay 25 bucks. This is worth the price since your score is charted to see if you get smarter.

In addition to the games, there is Edison who will guide you along as you go. The only problem with him is the annoying sounds coming out of him as if he is talking to you. This sound is similar to the adults talking on the Snoopy cartoons on TV. The trivia facts are interesting like the inventor of the Jacuzzi and information on the safety pins.

If you are in need of a brain transplant or want to have fun with some mind working tests, try Brainiversity 2 for a interesting experience. Are you really as smart as you think you are? Take the challenge and chart your evidence. I give this game a 3 out of 5 for helping improve your mind.
