Big Brain Academy Brain Vs Brain is a fun workout for your senses and reflexes. Whilst it may not be as intense or feel as in-depth as the Brain train games it does trick you into working out your brain with simple games, bright colors, and just a general fun atmosphere. I played and will play it daily alongside the Brain train game as like I say it’s just a different type of workout. Solo or with the family/friends, you get fun and a deceptively good workout. For maximum fun, play with friends but even in solo ghost mode keeps the challenges coming.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
