Test Your Mind
For the most part, Nintendo games are meant purely for entertainment purposes. However, this is not the case with the brain game Test Your Mind. The 2015 release was developed and published by XenoHorizon.
For a still screen type of layout, the graphics on Test Your Mind are pretty impressive. The image quality is very high with no visible pixelation glitches. All of these tasks are well designed with neat screen layouts and use of vibrant color schemes.
The cartoon characters are also very well presented and although not entirely life-like, they serve the purpose.
Test Your Mind features a series of brain teasers, trick quizzes, and puzzles to solve. There are three main levels in the single-player mode. These are Mind Breeze, Mind Tease, and Mind Test, which are arranged in order of difficulty. Each level contains several challenges that you must complete to unlock new puzzles and move to the higher levels. The puzzles are not that hard, but there are a few levels on the Mind Test that will have you racking your brain for answers. All in all, the gameplay of Test Your Mind allows you to not only mentally challenge yourself but also get entertained in the process.
In the Multiplayer mode, there is only one set of puzzles. It allows you to compete with your friend. In this case, you get to test both the ability to solve the puzzles and the speed of completing the challenges.
The major downside of this game is that the puzzles are not very challenging, especially when compared to other brain games on the market.
If you are a fan of high-intensity action-packed games with multiple control options, then you might be disappointed by this game. Test Your Mind is a pretty passive game as far as controls are concerned. It is more about brain power than about hand-eye coordination with its basic click and point operation model. You are also limited regarding customization because the game doesn’t give you options regarding puzzle design.
Replay Value: 1
The game has really low replay value. There is nothing new to discover and nothing to challenge you after unlocking all the levels and completing the puzzles. The only thing you can do is try and solve the puzzles faster. The game is also limited regarding unlockable items as you only get to access the new levels with no new items to keep things interesting.
Every once in a while, it is nice to calm down and give up the high action controls for the something more laid back. In this case, Test Your Mind is a great option. It is not only an entertainment but also a good learning experience and a good way to keep your mind sharp. Unfortunately, this is one of those one-time games that you might not want to play again after you are done.
