Brainbenders consists of a variety of sixteen games/puzzles devised by Dr Knizia, and linked by way of a world travel theme. You accompany the good doctor around the world, playing more games as you go. Each of them consists of a basic training level, going up to five levels of difficulty. Every game is located in a city on a world map; initially four cities, and hence four games, can be visited and played. It is through gaining high scores that opens up travel to other cities and their games. Four cities are, to begin with, hidden from play and can only be accessed once a sufficient number of high-score medals have been won.
The twelve starting cities/games are as follows. London: Operators - Balance the accounts at the Bank of England by quick responses to arithmetical puzzles. Paris: Alarm - Set the electronic alarms at the Louvre by turning all the switches to green. Berlin: Enigma - Deduce the correct code combination to activate the Enigma machine. Knossos: Labyrinth - use your dexterity to guide Dr Knizia through the labyrinth, collecting ancient artefacts as you go. Moscow: Match - devised by the Secret Service, your memory skills are put to the test as you try to match cards. Mumbai: Train Spotting. Using security cameras (many of them on the blink), try to keep track of goods train shipments. Greenland: Ice cap. Search for hidden equipment buried beneath the ice. Las Vegas: Royal Flush. Reiner has devised a new style of poker - all you have to do is lay out cards in winning combinations.Read more ›
Would reccomend to anyone who likes puzzles and brain teasers.
Each time you try to solve a puzzle, it is recognised and rewarded....either with a "could do better" or a bronze, silver, or gold medal and corresponding number of points. The points and medals can be accumulated to "buy" into the next level. I love deciding on the strategy of how to proceed......do I try to get a gold medal on this game.....or buy a new game to try. Towards the end (and presumably when your "skills" have been honed.....it becomes a little more difficult to acquire the necessary funds to buy the last games. You need to go back and improve on the games which you found difficult at the beginning, thus improving the skills in which you are weakest i.e. memory as opposed to strategy!
I'm 66 and memory is definitely in need of recovery!
Other brain training games are disciplined and repetative....I found them boring after a while. THIS game never ceases to interest me and I have spent many hours on planes, holidays and recently, snow bound afternoons, starting the process again under a different name. It is challenging and rewarding....I just hope my brain benefits from the fun!
Apart from the odd medal here and there left to get (and most of the Inca section) I have almost finished, I will be quite sorry when I get to the end, if there is a sequel I hope it will be as good as this one. I enjoyed the first Dr Kawashima game, and Brain Academy even more, but this is the best one so far!
