[prMac.com] Chichester, United Kingdom - Independent games developer Chris Mayer today is pleased to announce a successful first year on the App Store for Brain App, with over 20,000 downloads in more than 50 countries.
Brain App uses simple math, logic, reaction, and perception puzzles to help keep your mind sharp. Studies have shown that brain exercises such as those included with Brain App increase the rate of blood flow in the brain - strengthening neural connections, which allows for faster responses and improved memory recollection capacity.
Brain App includes a selection of brain exercises that are both fun and rewarding to play.
* 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, with three difficulty settings.
* Balloon Burst
Burst the numbered balloons in the order shown on screen. There are two difficulty settings, in Easy Mode you must pop the balloons in order from lowest to highest. In Advanced Mode the order that you must pop the balloons will change, be sure to pay close attention. Balloon Burst will exercise your logic and math skills, as well as your reaction times.
* 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 (iPad and Mac versions only)
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. Variable difficulty options available.
* Color Chaos (Mac version only)
Words will be displayed in colored text on the screen, click the button that matches the COLOR of the text displayed. Match the color of the text, NOT the actual word. Easy mode has three colors, Advanced mode has five.
* 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 in the iPhone and iPad versions.
"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. Over the next year I plan to add even more challenging brain exercises to all three versions of Brain App" - Developer, Chris Mayer.
