“Stop wasting your time with those mindless games.” Does your inner mom-voice ever whisper this to you after a few hours of playing games on your iPhone? Brain Training Unotan, an app by SoftBank Selection, will silence that voice and let your brain get a workout while you have fun.
Brain Training Unotan was based on the brain training methodology of Professor Makoto Shichida, an expert on right brain exercises and therapy. Using Professor Shichida’s theories, this game can help drastically improve your memory retention, concentration, and intuition.
Brain Training Unotan offers fifteen games in all, each one designed to target a specific area that you might need improvement in. To increase your concentration skills, try “Match the Kanji Characters”, where you must find a specific pictograph out of a grid of twelve. The clock runs down quickly, forcing you to focus on your search. Other concentration-specific games include Moving Dots, Memorizing Sequence, and Shape Recognition.
Looking to improve exam performances? Then try the Brain Training Unotan’s memorization games. Most people only use their left brain to memorize, but training your right brain to form mental pictures can do wonders in aiding memorization skills. The five memorization games on this app will have you memorizing objects, numbers, situations, images, and even faces effortlessly.
Do you find it difficult to make important decisions, whether it be work, school, or home-related? Brain Training Unotan’s judgment games will help your right brain form a solid analysis of situations and come to a decision faster. These games focus on determing numbers and values quickly, or in the case of the game Ghost Leg, identifying a goal by discerning patterns.
This app has an extremely easy-to-use interface, and the graphics are fantastic.
For anyone who loves puzzle-oriented games like Tetris or Sudoku, Brain Training Unotan will be highly addictive. All fifteen games are available in the full version for $3.99, but you can also purchase the concentration, memory, or intuition games separately for $2.99 each.
Proven to improve test errors, reduce forgetfulness, and improve creativity by utilizing the right side of the brain, Brain Training Unotan is a great game for kids and adults alike.
Brain Training Unotan requires the iPhone OS 2.1 or later and is compatible with both the iPhone and iPod Touch.
