Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can you stay Focused? [Nintendo 3DS] £12.85 @ Simply Games

Not usually my cuppa tea, my brain is pretty much un-trainable... I can never find my keys, Mobile phone is usually down the back of the sofa and the wallet always seems to end up in the wife's handbag. I honestly don't know how it gets in there?

£12.85 is pretty cheap for this though, looked around and not seen it this low anywhere. I know some people love this type of thing, so this is for you

This looks like the news for my brain... Nothing, nada, empty

Developed in cooperation with neuroscientist Dr Ryuta Kawashima, the idea behind Devilish Brain Training - the third game in a franchise which has sold more than 15 million copies across Europe to date - is to train your grey matter by completing a series of challenging exercises with an emphasis on concentration skills and focus to train your working memory - an important brain function based around the temporary storage of information for manipulation. Through playing each exercise for a few minutes per day over the course of several weeks, and with the game to be conveniently available as a download on Nintendo eShop, you will have the time to notice whether personal improvements in your focus are being made.

Devilish Brain Training offers 30 exercises and minigames, including 18 which are brand new, with the core exercises dynamically adapting to create bespoke training programmes for all abilities. For example, Devilish Calculations challenges you to recall the answer to a previous mathematical problem while paying attention to the next one in line. The questions come thick and fast and you have to concentrate hard while remembering specific information to make sure you don’t make any mistakes.

Devilish Mice challenges you to simultaneously track the path of several mice while they are being chased by cats. It sounds simple but the exercise requires much concentration! If you find one of the exercises too tricky and perform poorly then it will dynamically adjust the difficulty based on your real-time results. By offering a stiff challenge and shifting the difficulty to match your performance, Devilish Brain Training will constantly push you to stay focused and access short-term memories.

"The participants were also asked to complete a series of cognitive tests that were not part of the training to see if the program had any effect on their general cognitive abilities.

While both groups showed improvement, the researchers found that commercial brain training didn't lead to any more improvement than online video games."

So all games are good for general cognitive ability then...

It's strange that they didn't see any change in the participants' attitude to risk, a function that they linked to cognitive abilities, with article using this to determine a lack of benefit of play. Yet the above quote suggests a different test did show an improvement in cognitive ability as a result of playing games.

Pass. This is about right for it but the game has been in production for 3 and a half years! Too long ninty, too long.

Bought. Thanks.

This would definitely qualify for the £2.50 topcashback too (whether simplygames track with or without vat)
