[prMac.com] Chichester, United Kingdom - Independent games developer Chris Mayer today is pleased to announce the availability of popular brain training software 'Brain App' via MacGameStore.com.
Over 20,000 people in more than 50 countries have given their brains a workout with Brain App. Using tried and tested techniques, Brain App presents a variety of rapid-fire math problems in quick succession to exercise the brain.
MacAppStoreReview reviewed Brain App, saying: "The activities are simple enough to start right away but aren't so simple that they become mundane. Brain App is a great way to keep your mind in top shape!"
Four Brain Exercise types have been included in the initial release of Brain App for Mac, with a fifth exercise to be added via a free update in February. Brain App users can suggest new features and exercises on the Brain App Facebook Page.
* Speed Math
Solve as many equations as possible with the time limit. Points are awarded for solving each equation, and deducted for a wrong answer. You can choose to play for either 30 or 60 seconds at a time. Three difficulty settings are available, which control the complexity of the equations.
* Balloon Burst
Burst the numbered balloons in order. There are two difficulty settings, in Easy Mode points are awarded from bursting the balloons quickly from lowest to highest. In advanced mode the order in which you must pop the balloons changes mid-game, requiring fast reflexes and giving the brain a really thorough workout.
* Card Count
Multiple playing cards are thrown onto the screen. Quickly total the value of the cards. It's not as easy as it sounds though - most are numbered, but Jacks, Queens and Kings will get you thinking fast to total their values.
* Missing Signs
Given only two numbers and an answer, you must figure out if the numbers have been added, subtracted or multiplied. A test of logic and math skills, answer as many correctly as you can within the time limit. Easy / Advanced / Genius Modes.
* Online World Rankings & BrainApp IQ
Introducing BrainApp IQ - a global score based on your results in all Brain Exercises. Take your BrainApp IQ online and compare with the world in World Rankings mode. Users of all three versions (iPhone, iPad & Mac) can complete in the same leaderboard.
"Since Brain App's release on iPhone in February 2010 the positive reviews have come flooding in, users love it and I'm thilled with all the positive feedback on the App Store. Review sites such as AppCourt are calling it one of their favourites. The Mac version has already had a successful launch on the Mac App Store, and I'm excited to see it now available via MacGameStore.com - so even Mac users without access to the Mac App Store can still enjoy Brain App for Mac" - Developer, Chris Mayer
