Review: Active Neurons (PlayStation 4)

Active Neurons is a game that trains spatial logical thinking. By controlling the power of thought, you must charge neurons. The more charged neurons, the healthier our brain. The healthier the brain, the more fully-fledged life a person lives.

Every now and then you just want a game to chill out with or work your brain but not your reflexes, Active Neurons is that game, you can just rest up, do some of the easy to intermediate difficulty levels of puzzles and to be honest just get some easy trophies. The gameplay is just fine but never feels overly difficult. You would play this over a period of time and then never come back, for what it is is fine but be prepared for it to be a short moldy difficult experience.

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!
