Brain Games

Everything to do with brain games and mind games.

Wording is one the best word games I have made. It’s simple to learn/play yet very challenging to play well. The goal is to build words with the set of 18 letters you are given, using each letter just once and trying to plan your words so that they include all the letters (while also trying to make long words).

Word Zirch is a dynamic word search game in which you need to find your target word among the many words floating about the screen. Instead of the words/letters being locked up in a grid, in this game they are bouncing around the screen.

Keyball is a fun typing game in which you need to try and capture balls with timely keystrokes. The gameboard consists of a a bunch of red and blue balls careening about within a keyboard layout. You need to pay close attention and press the appropriate key when a region contains only blue balls and no red balls.

Dodgeball is a fun flash game that requires you to dodge the moving balls as you navigate around the game board with your mouse collecting your targets. As the game progresses, the balls get larger and move faster, making the game ever-more-difficult.

This logic game is a spin-off from one of the BrainBall tasks. The object is to eliminate the pieces from the board while creating as many color matches as possible. Success requires a great deal of planning, making this a great brain exercise!

Whitts is a card game in which you strategically play cards from the board into one of two different piles. The goal is to play the cards such that they form groups of 3 that are the same color, number, consecutive etc. Plan your moves in advance to optimize your score.

Simple but very challenging, Spaztik will challenge your mind on many different fronts. The game is actually a derivative of a task in Broken Mouse that I decided to develop into a game of its own. The goal is very straight-forward: track the motion of the ball with your mouse cursor. The trick is that [...]

Quadrants is a tetris-style game in that you need to strategically place the falling blocks, and prevent the pieces from building up to the top of the playing board. However, in this game, the pieces are all shaped the same – as squares, so you are not trying to fit them in spatially. Instead, you are trying to match their colors, as each piece has 4 colors (one per side).

This is a quirky little typing game in which you need to be very, very careful not to make typos, and to type the phrases/sentences exactly as they appear. The game is so named a) because you lose once you have made 10 typos and b) because some of the text you are typing actually contains intentional typos or other strange errors.

This is a memory game that requires you to remember the arrangement of objects in space. You will start each round with a few seconds to memorize the board before moving onto the recall phase in which you need to recreate the pattern from a blank slate.

This is a visual search game using photography. You will be presented with a little chunk of a picture and you will have to search it out in a grid of similar picture chunks.

Primal Logic is a math game / logic puzzle in which you try to reduce the grid of numbers until there are only prime numbers remaining. Strategically combine adjacent numbers as you attempt to eliminate all non-prime pieces from the game board.

In this fun word game, you need to work against time to patch together the words and fill in all their holes. Work with the set of loose letters to assemble a set of valid English words.

This is a great little logic puzzle – in my estimation one of the more interesting games I’ve made. The goal is to remove all the pieces from the board according to simple rules of association. The game starts off relatively easily but gets considerably more interesting and challenging as the rounds progress.

Retroception is a game that will challenge you iconic memory (short-term visual memory) by asking you to click on targets that have just vanished. One by one the targets will disappear from the game board and your job is to click as close as possible to where they were before the disappeared.
