Esdevium Games launches Cortex Challenge

Remember Brain Training on the Nintendo DS? It billed itself as a way to keep your brain fresh and went on to be a huge success, with stories about grannies picking up a DS just to play the brain-bending puzzles. Now Esdevium Games is hoping for a similar level of success with its new Cortex Challenge series, which translates brain exercises into a tabletop game.

In Cortex Challenge you must tax your brain with mini-games that test your thinking, memory and speed skills! Compete with other players in eight different challenges that will make you use all your brain power: touch tests, duplicates, logical series, mazes, colour puzzles and more.

Cortex Challenge uses the same fast-paced approach to family fun popularised by Dobble and Jungle Speed! Cortex Challenge tests up to six players’ memory, cognition and sensory perception. It even includes texture cards that are used during ‘Touch Challenges’, where players must guess what they are feeling, adding a unique element that is often neglected in games. Players’ brain powers are stretched to the max as they race to be the first to match symbols, correctly remember all objects on a card or find the route out of mazes, amongst many other tests. Winning challenges allows players to add pieces to their brain puzzle which they must complete before their opponents in order to win the game.

There are three versions of Cortex Challenge available - the standard edition, a kid editions with slightly easier teasers and Geo, which is centred around geographical tests. All are available now with an RRP of £12.99.
