About this game

A great collection of brain training games. Mind Games is a great collection of games based in part on principles derived from cognitive tasks to help you practice different mental skills. This is the free, ad-supported, version of the hit brain training app. Mind Games includes nearly 3 dozen of Mindware’s brain training games (some of which allow you to play 3 times and require upgrading to play more). All games include your score history and graph of your progress. The games list shows a summary of your best games and today’s scores on all games. Using some principles from standardized testing, your scores are also converted to a comparison scale so that you can see where you need work and excel. You might also be able to notice the effects of various lifestyle factors on your performance through the score history.

Mind Games is also now available on iPhone/iPad and Windows.

Languages available: English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, German, Arabic, Russian, Japanese.

Gradually deteriorating. Have new people taken over? Mind Games used to have a professional feel to the UI, despite having an annoying number of ads. Now the interface looks like it was designed by a 10 year old in the 1980s. The newer games seem not to be based on solid research. Needs rigorous usability testing. 6-year user, now uninstalled.

Very sorry you find the app disappointing after being such a long-term user. We have invested a lot of time and money into the app interface. We collect data on each new game and only retain ones that our users like the most. I would happily provide you with a lifetime license to the pro version (which is ad free). Email support@mindware.mobi.

This app has deteriorated since i first used it 9 years ago or so. Its almost unplayable now because ads pop up constantly & some are hard to get rid of. Plus, most games you have to pay to play! It's now rather childish looking, & some of the memory tests start at way too advanced a level, making it irritating & not helpful at all. Youre not supposed to START at an advanced level, youre supposed to work your way up there. Wish i didnt have to uninstall because I used to love this app.

Very sorry you feel that way after using the free version for so many years. Please contact us at support@mindware.mobi and I would be happy to give you a lifetime license to the Pro version (which is ad free). You can also exclude games that you don't like from the training center by clicking Skip.

Great for keeping your mind sharp. Redundancy is key to improving skills and growing synaptic connections in the brain, and to promulgate this growth, the user should be given the option to set a level to practice and reinforce strategies without advancing to a too difficult level is crucial. Repetition is key to improving complex thinking skills.
