Exercise Your Brain! 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 app 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.

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

Mind Games is intended to be brain challenging entertainment. No scientific research has yet been conducted to determine if this app has cognitive benefits.

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