If you are going to stock your iPhone with loads of game apps, it wouldn’t hurt to add a few that exercise your brain too. Achieve – Brain Training by The Really Useful Information Company, LLC, has put together a group of mini games sure to sharpen the mind.
Here is the app’s full description:

Achieve – Brain Training is made up of five different brain teasing tests, each testing different mechanics involving math, spelling, matching and even colors. You start with the Stroop Test in Color Mode, which shows you color word in a certain color, and you must correctly pick the color that it is and not what it reads. Getting a bit harder called Word Mode, you must now pick the color answer which the word reads and not what color it is. Seems tricky? That’s because it is. Cranking it up one more notch mixes the two modes and you have barely enough time to look at the word and see what mode you are playing before it’s time to pick an answer. And that’s just the first game. Add to that some spelling challenges and math problems and it is enough to make your head spin!
That’s not to say Achieve – Brain Training is not enjoyable, because it is. Sure it’s tough, but that’s kind of what you are going for when looking for a brain training app. You want it to be challenging. What I like about these mini games is that the game concepts are simple, and most of the problems are. The challenge is getting them solved in a time limit as well as mixed in with other types of problems to solve. Having your brain hop from one type of task to another can take some getting used to. The theme of the app is nice with a very bright color scheme. The games are clean and very easy to read. The difficulty also increases as you play, making for an increase in replay ability. Even better, no intrusive ads.
Achieve – Brain Training is a great on the go challenge. It may not make you smarter, but it will keep you sharp as a tack. The app is available now in the App Store for free and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
