Brain Fever: Logic Challenge is a math-based game. Each level opens with two rows of positive and negative numbers. At the top of the screen is a goal number (such as -3). The player’s goal is to use the rows of number blocks to add and subtract their way to the goal number. The more numbers they use to reach the goal number, the higher the score. If the player takes too long, however, a new row of numbers will be added to the playing field. The player earns up to three stars per level.
Brain Fever: Logic Challenge has in-game ads and purchases available. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating. Due to the nature of needing to understand negative numbers, however, this game is recommended for players in upper elementary school or older.
Brain Fever: Logic Challenge helps kids practice and improve the following skills:
Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
This is a fast game. The player must use their focus skills and ignore internal and external distractions. If they don’t, new rows will add up quickly. If the top row hits the top edge of the game board, the player loses that level. The player also needs to keep the focus split between the numbers on the playing field, the target number, and the distance between the top row and the edge of the playing field. If the player does not use all aspects of their focus skills, they will be unable to unlock new puzzles or new levels of difficulty.
Being efficient and aware of our use of time and effort.
This game provides a unique way to work on time management skills. Not only does the player have to keep pace with the row timer and make sure that their playing field doesn’t fill up with number blocks, but they also have to get as many points as possible. The more numbers involved, however, the more complex the math gets and the longer it takes. If the player puts too much effort into calculations, they will run out of time. However, if they worry only about speed, they will get only one or two stars. In other words, if they don’t fully use their time management skills, they will fail levels or be unable to get all three stars.
