On the fence about buying, but the demo was quite fun. I've played all the "brain" games that I know of, and this one is definitely better than most. Pros: - Colorful and quirky characters - Sharp graphics, fun art style - Games are simple to learn, but get progressively harder as you play - Rewards and trophies to collect - Good variety of games, and you add a few as you progress Cons: - Could be issues if you are colorblind or have marginal color perception. - I had to turn off the sound after a while. The music is okay, but the VOs irksome. - One game is a killer if you are math-challenged like I am. I only played the demo, but there were 4 games available to me. One was a "Diner Dash" type game where you serve food to clients - but you have to memorize the orders, as you can't see them anymore after you start the round. One was a sorting game where you have to categorize words into groups of 3, like seasons, card suits, novel titles, etc. Some of them involved sports, and those were hard for me, as I'm not familiar with sports teams or equipment. I could usually get them by elimination, and I liked that game a lot. Then there was a dry cleaner where you had tickets with pictures of clothing items at the bottom of the screen, and conveyors of clothing above. You had to match the moving clothes with the tickets in the proper order. The sticky was that you might have the same shirt in lime and chartreuse, and it was hard to tell the difference. Not bad, though. Then there is a supermarket game where you are given an amount to spend, and you have to select one item from each shelf that adds up to that amount. I hated it, and did very badly. That one game may keep me from buying, unless I find that you can make enough points in the other games to still unlock the rest of the games. I can do math in my head, but not as fast as the game demands. Still a fun play. Try it for yourself and see! You might do well at the supermarket, LOL.
