[prMac.com] Tampa, Florida - Isotope 244 is proud to release a new puzzle strategy game on the Mac App Store titled 5BY5 Brain Game. 5BY5 Brain Game introduces totally new game play. 5BY5 Brain Game features game logic like Sudoku mixed with Bejeweled. Players slide numbered tiles up and down, left and right, and match colors to gain points when groups of tiles add to 5.
Gamers tease their brain with an interesting mix of game play elements in this strategy puzzler. "Using only one of these elements would provide a challenging game, and many games do this, but 5BY5 Brain Game makes your brain fire on all cylinders by making you utilize many different areas of the brain simultaneously. Areas dealing with color matching, forward thinking, motor control, and simple math to name a few," said the game's developer James Bryant.
Studies published by researchers at the University of Iowa, reported in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE found that a group using a computerized exercise for just 10 hours had significant gains in cognitive function. "It's the use it or lose it' phenomenon," said the study's lead researcher Dr. Fredric Wolinsky.
