About this product

Product Information

Brain Age is a game of mathematical equations, logic puzzles, reading exercises, and more with the curious goal of stimulating a player's gray matter. Based on the research of Japanese neurologist Ryuta Kawashima, the premise behind Brain Age is that certain regions of the brain can become more active, more "healthy," through specific, timed exercises repeated on a daily basis. Played with the touch screen positioned on either the left or right side, like a book, the game involves using the stylus to jot down numbers, draw lines between dots, and so forth, while the microphone is used for calling out colors, reading passages aloud, and various other functions. <br><br>Kawashima himself serves as the game's host and will offer pointed criticism or words of encouragement based on each test's results. The object is to make one's brain "younger" over time by playing each day for weeks or even months. Progress is charted via graph over a specified time period, with up to a year's worth of data stored in each of the game's four save files. Among the included activities are Syllable Count, Reading Aloud, Word Memory, Stroop Test, Speed Counting, Triangle Math, Connect Maze, Calculation, Head Count, and Low to High. The logic puzzle game Sudoku is also featured as a bonus, while up to 16 players can compete in a race to solve math problems.

    Box is bilingual, game is English only

    Cute little game to keep your brain busy. Game cover is french/english, but game is in English only. The game asks to hand-write numbers, but automatic recognition is far from perfect. The game is angry at you if you don't play every day. Interface for Sudoku is different from others Sudoku games I know, but it's functional and fits well with the rest of the game.

  • If Homework were Fun, It'd be called Brain Age

    Brain Age for the Nintendo DS is somewhat of an anomaly. By all technical terms, it's a game; you learn the rules, play your guts out, and go for a high score. Then again, it's nothing like a game; simple math equations, classical reading, or just counting as fast as you can are the order of the day. You hurriedly scribble the answers (which the game will occasionally completely misinterpret), shout the names of colors (which the game will occasionally completely misinterpret), and try desperately to write out that list of words you were just supposed to memorize (will the game will occasionally completely misinterpret). All of this to receive a score like you've never seen: a score for your brain. If you want a game that you will play for a few hours at a time, look elsewhere. ...

  • Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day

    I like that Brain Age has daily training exercises to stimulate my brain. It includes Sudoku too. It has a brain age check to tell you how close your brain is to the target age of 20. It has graphs to show your progress for daily training exercises and visual aids to encourage your growth. It includes math problems, reading, syllable count, memory games, and more. Some of the comments it makes between games are a bit corny, but otherwise I feel the games are helpful. I bought it to see if it would help stave off dementia since I am 60 yrs old now...only time will tell, but I don't think it can hurt.

  • Train your brain in 15ish minutes a day

    I purchased this game as a gift for my mom for Christmas. She LOVES it. I have an 'account' on the game as well, although I don't do it quite as often as she does. She's done it every single day since christmas eve. It has quite a variety of tasks, but they are limited. Once you've opened them all, that's all there is. He has you draw things, asks you questions, AND then there are the actual 'training' tasks. I would say using this is much more interesting and fun if you have at least one other person to join you regularly. He tells you to compare your pictures to one another, which in and of itself, can be quite amusing. The games are interesting and can show you an aptitude in a certain area. Mom is very good at math, while I am slightly better with words and logic. All in all ...

  • some thing you could do with kids

    I am not very sure about its ability to improve your brain's smartness but I do think it is a cool thing you can do with your family kids. This has some fun activities in the game like simple math, memory (remembering a few words shown), headcount (counting the people who will be in the house after a few people move in and out.) Since the game also keeps track of time and the problems are simple, it evens the field between adults and kids. My kid and I enjoyed this game very much. This game also depends on speech recognition and handwriting recognition technology both of which are not perfect and in fact may contribute to lower scores( actually higher age in this case). Otherwise so far we enjoyed this game very much. Overall, I would rather like my son to spend time on this game ...
