What's New in Version 1.6
Thanks for playing Brainbean! This update brings minor fixes and improvements for iOS 10.1.
How do you put out a game without any instructions at all. That's crazy bad. Listen to the real reviewers and fix your app. Too many bugs. I also think you should give us the option to choose how much time should be on the clock and an option to take the timer off. I wanted to find apps that I could teach an autistic adult but he would get way too frustrated with the clock.
Also, in your app I tried to contact you by email but that doesn't work either. I think the coders gave up on this app.
Not too hard to figure out
Yes, it doesn't include instructions but it isn't that hard to figure out. Don't overthink it, it's not as tricky as it may appear at first. It is instinctual so the appropriate user could really be determined not by physical age so much as mental creativity. Think patterns, spelling, logical sequences, matches and "what doesn't belong".
The games on this app are easy on the eyes, colorful, and inviting. The problem is that there are no instructions whatsoever on how to play each game. I understand that they are meant to be brain games, but what's the point of having a game if you can't figure out how to play? You're only allotted so many seconds for each game, so you're even limited in the time you have to try to figure it out. The description of the app says it's for anyone aged 10-110, so that gives the impression they're easy to figure out, but not so. I asked 3 different children to play, aged 10, 12, and 15. None could figure out how to play all of them. A few of the games were easily figured out , but they struggled with the same games I did.
