Russian company SPB Software is one of the world’s leading developers of software for mobile platforms. In the past they have mainly been focusing on Windows Mobile, but I’m happy to see they have started to release titles for Android and Symbian as well. SPB recently updated their game Brain Evolution and introduced a brand new one: SPB Quads.
SPB Brain Evolution (the best selling Windows Mobile game in 2008) is meant to be a workout for your mind: a tool to exercise the brain and improve your memory, logic, arithmetic and puzzle-solving skills. Version 2 of the game brings a few additional exercises, a more finger-friendly interface, support for WVGA screens and an improved system for tracking your progress. You can also share your achievements online and directly post them to Twitter (social networking is all the rage these days).
Brain Evolution has 12 different game categories and can be quite challenging. I’m sure it can help improve your skills overtime, and with the tool for tracking your progress – you will know if it has. Its biggest competitor is Resco Brain Games, which has a similar approach. Brain Evolution can be downloaded here.
Quads is based on SPB’s old Quadronica game, and its premise is quite simple: to find same-colored rectangles in a field filled with colored bricks. It may sound easy but when you’re not used to such a task, it’s actually harder than you think. You can read more about Quads at SPB’s website.
