a good game but with a few bugs
on 29 December 2007
This game was received along with brain training & big brain academy & a sparkling new ds for christmas.
I really like it & have played it daily. The game unlocks new mini games as you progress & gives you an expression potential every day based on how well you are doing. It also has a high score table so you can compare your scores against family or friends that have played using the same cart.
However, it doesn't always recognise letters (same as brain training here) & one of the games block letters needs it turnng sideways, not allowing a left handd version .
The games are fun & new aspects get introduced as you crack a harder level like blowing into the soup while retrieving the letters in pasta letters.
V happy with this game.
There's not a lot of multiplayer either - but block letters played competitively with my husband was insne & fun - it's quite cool that if you remove a word & he is halfway through selecting the letters to make that word on his ds they disappear from his screen aka a bomb blast & he groans - not quite so funny in reverse though!)
I don't know how much it is improving my vocabulary as I knew a lot of the words already, but it is fun & is improving my reaction times.
It also gives you a test at first to pitch the words correctly so my 8 yr old has been playing it at an appropriate level for her.
