Brain Training

Does your brain feel a little out of shape? Brain Age is what you need to shape up your mental thought processes. The game is inspired by the research of Professor Ryuta Kawashima, a prominent Japanese neuroscientist. Through years of researching the effects of performing reading and mathematical exercises he has compiled simple takes that will help to stimulate the brain.
 
Designed to help people young and old to stay mentally sharp, Brain Age gives you quick mental tasks that will stimulate your prefrontal cortex. You'll start off by taking a test of what your current brain is at. The ideal age to shoot for is 20. To get your brain age to the mental sharpness of a 20 year old if you're not there yet, you'll need to fire up the game daily to do daily training. With the use of the stylus and touch screen, or in some tests the microphone, you will go through tasks as fast as you can like solving simple math problems, memorizing the placement of objects on the screen, memorizing a list of words and having to recall as many as you can, and more. As the days go by the professor will unlock different puzzles for you to tackle to keep your gray matter as sharp as possible.
 
You can jump into Quick Play to show your friends and family or to just do a mental sharpening. Go into Daily Training to track your brain age, check out your progress on a graph, and do your daily training. Go to Download and you can compete against friends to see who can do math calculations the fastest.
 
The US and European versions include Sudoku to also keep your brain in shape.
More Brain Training.
The sequel to Brain Age (known as Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training - How Old Is Your Brain in Europe), this game adds several new methods of training your brain out of its tired state. It also includes new exercises to gauge the age of your brain, up to an ideal minimum of 20. This is based on neuroscientist Dr. Kawashima's research which suggests that the brain, like the body, benefits from regular exercise to keep it in shape.
 
The exercises include Missing Symbols, Masterpiece Recital, Word Blend, Word Scramble, Memory Addition, Days and Dates, Correct Change, Calculate the Height, Finishing Position and Determine the Time. It also includes Sudoku and a Dr. Mario-esque mini-game.
Sight Training
Another one of Nintendo's games designed to train your brain. This one is designed to give your eyes a workout - your focus abilities. There are 5 areas of skill training:
    • Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) - The power to clearly see moving objects.
    • Momentary Vision - The ability to gather several bits of information at once.
    • Eye Movement - The ability to move your eyes quickly and accurately.
    • Peripheral Vision - The ability to see over a wide area.
  • Hand-Eye Coordination (HEC) - The ability to recognize and respond quickly and accurately.
Once you do an Eye Age check the game will recommend particular training to help you. Your progress and age will be tracked by the game so you can view your Eye Age status... getting older or younger?

The game has a calendar to track when you used the game by giving you stamps when you complete so many games in a particular day. Once you accumulate a certain amount of stamps more activities will be unlocked for you to play.

Here are some of the activities included in the game:
    • Symbol Order: Three symbols flash on the screen in any of the 12 boxes. One symbol appears at a time for only a split second. The challenge is to remember each symbol and then enter all three symbols in the order in which they appeared.
    • Box Tap: Furiously tap a series of moving red boxes before they disappear. The more you successfully tap, the higher the score.
    • Number Flash: In this activity, numbers flash very briefly on the top screen. You must then select the correct number. As the activity gets harder, the number sequence gets longer.
    • Box Track: A circle is placed in one of three boxes. The challenge is to follow the box with the circle in it as the three shuffle rapidly on the screen. You must then tap the box with the circle in it.
    • Circle Spot: Symbols appear for a split second in 12 boxes arranged on the touch screen. You must tap the only circle among the symbols.
    • Letter Count: Quickly memorize the target letter, then count how many times it appears as a fast-moving series of letters moves across the screen.
    • Fast Match: Quickly look at the two symbols as they flash on the screen, then decide if they matched by tapping on the touch screen.
    • Baseball: Tap the ball on the touch screen as the pitch crosses the plate to score a hit. With each hit, the box gets bigger, making it more challenging to hit the speeding pitch.
    • Boxing: Pummel the punch mitt by tapping the center of the target before the sparring partner lowers it. Earn extra points for punching a clean hit in the center of the mitt with perfect accuracy.
  • Table Tennis: Slide the stylus across the screen to hit the ball back to your opponent.
