Have a few minutes spare every day to look after your grey matter? Here’s a game that will help your brain keep fighting fit for longer, and that’s fun, to boot.
Let’s start with the essentials: as you may have guessed, Professor Rubik's Brain Fitness is neither an RPG nor an adventure game. There’s never any doubt that the game’s sole purpose is to boost your brain power: it’s not really a game, more a training session. And don’t worry if you aren’t a fan of the Rubik’s Cube: the game is a lot easier and genuinely fun.
Professor Rubik has 20+ challenges in store for you, split into six different archetypes: Letters, Memory, Concentration, Calculation, Spatial Visualisation and Agility.
If you want a game where you can switch off and veg out, keep walking, but the Free Play mode has four mini-games available if you just want to have a bit of fun. Cube 2048 challenges you to merge matching numbers to get the biggest number possible.
Door to Door is a mini-game where you need to avoid hidden traps and make it across as many squares as possible, while another game tasks you with turning cubes to make an exact copy of a model, with just a limited number of moves. Match 4 is a Tetris-style game where you have to line up colours so that the line disappears before it reaches the top of the screen.
The game isn’t designed to be played for hours on end every day, but rather as a quick daily habit to help you take care of your brain and maximise its potential.
Training is good, but getting a score and making progress is even better! The game provides you with a daily assessment to highlight your weaknesses and show you what you need to focus on next time!
