Gain mental fitness as you play: Sales of various THINK versions have reached hundreds of thousands, and now the perfect mobile brain trainer is also available for iPhone and iPod touch owners from the iTunes App Store. Players train their mental abilities in a total of four categories and 16 different training units. THINK features an original workout for all player types: be it math, comprehension, memory or logic, the brain training exercises are specifically designed to boost the activity of your gray matter. Whatever disciplines players choose, THINK encourages them to check their progress daily and generate statistics of their personal success.
iPhone and iPod touch users play to be smart: Regular mental exercise has been scientifically proven to increase the brain's activity. THINK is based on that understanding and provides the ideal game principle through which to improve players' imagination, creativity, and concentration. In the math category, players balance the "Numbers Mobile", beat their own highscores by playing against the clock in "Mental Math", or sort numbers and operators in the training units "Zero-sums" and "Results". The comprehension category is also tricky: Players need to master "Color Sudoku" and "Marble Run", or find the right words in the "Alphabet Soup". THINK also methodically tests players' memory and logic skills: iPhone and iPod touch users get to train their memory for faces, match folding patterns to colored cubes, and put letters in the right order in "Enigma" or "Up and Down".
Whether playing alone or in a group, THINK gets your brain going. If you only have a few minutes to spare, the game mode "Fast Play" selects disciplines at random, allowing you to make optimal use of short breaks. Of course, a motivating multiplayer mode is a must: In THINK, up to four players can compete against each other on a single iPhone or iPod touch. The game's high-quality brain training exercises keep players motivated for a long time - with an extra large helping of fun.
THINK for iPhone and iPod touch is available now from the iTunes App Store at a price of $ 2.99.
