Cerevrum Game (Google Daydream)
Intro: Cerevrum Game is the first virtual reality brain training game. Set in a world of powerful spirits, players challenge their brains with different games to win the favour of the gods. The players are using portals to get to mini-games – a galactic shooter called “Stardust” and a fantasy game called “Heroes”. Each mini-game has three cognitive tasks whose difficulty increases with each successful completion of a round. The number of test objects and other parameters increases over time.
Verdict: The graphics are nothing to write home, the voice over isn’t great and this could just have easily been played on a screen rather than in VR. But yet…I loved it! The clash of puzzle game and educational content works so well and to be honest was a very clever idea. It’s basically brain training in VR! I think younger minds will be amused a lot longer with this game than my own older, tired mind, but playing with the Gear VR controller I felt it responsive enough and I could easily lose hours at a time playing this game. While I do wish it was a little cheaper than it currently is, you won’t feel too short-changed if you play it regularly enough to keep your grey matter working and active. Like all good brain training games, it’s only as good as the effort you put into it.
