Give your brain a good workout
- Four mini games test different skill
- Adult and child difficulty settings
- High scores for each mini game
- Mini games get a bit repetitive
If you want to get the most out of your life then it's important to keep your brain in good shape. There are lots of ways you can do this - including installing Smart Educational Games on your PC.
Smart Educational Games consists of a series of four mini games that test different aspects of your mind. The Space Invaders-style Math game challenges your addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. You are given a figure and must shoot the spaceship with the sum that matches that amount.
The Memory game is a straightforward matching pairs game, where points are awarded based on how few moves you take to find all of the pairs. The Puzzle game sees you try to make a picture by rearranging the tiles, and the Earth game tests your knowledge of the location of countries and capital cities.
There are two difficulty levels for each of the mini games in Smart Educational Games - one for children and one for adults. Each mini game features its own high scores table too.
Smart Educational Games is well presented and fun to play. One of the few criticisms I could level at it would be that there is not enough variety within the mini games. Many Similar brain training-style games usually have an array of different challenges within one skill category, whereas the ones in Smart Educational Games only have the one.
Another thing I didn't like was the horrid interface in the geography game, where you must select the number that corresponds with the country or city in the question. Instead of just clicking on the map, or typing the number you need to scroll through the entire range of numbers, which seems like a complete waste of time.
These glitches aside, Smart Educational Games does offer a pleasant way to have fun and pump your cerebral muscles at the same time.
