Mind Builder is a game designed to increase your working memory and fluid intelligence, a type of intelligence dealing with the ability to solve new problems.
People who play this type of game increase their IQ scores, with the improvement proportional to how many days they played the game. The key to the game's success is that it causes you to have to employ both visual and auditory working memory.
Each level of the game employs some combination of button locations, colors, sounds, and pictures. Your job is to remember what you saw and heard several seconds ago. While it is easy in early stages, it quickly becomes quite challenging.
For the first game levels, you only need to remember what you saw and heard a few seconds ago, but on later levels, you have to remember two moves back, three moves back, and even more. If you correctly remember enough information, you advance to the next level.
Mind Builder is a fun game that has been shown to improve your brain power. You improve yourself when you play Mind Builder!
The best dual N-back app yet!
This app is just great. The levels get harder more gradually than going straight from single n-back to dual n-back, and it even has triple n-back with animal pictures! :-)
I hope an update would change the sounds to have more of an audible difference between b, d, p, t and phi.
Exceptional!!! Would be better if the game could store result on iCloud between devices
One of the a few games I would recommend to get addicted to as a constant brain exercise to help restoring fluid intelligence before the computer age starts eating everything away.
The game really challenges the human mind! It took me several attempts to finish the first round. The levels get progressively difficult as you go on, so you can never get bored. Awesome game!
