Avanquest Software Publishing, a leading consumer software and games publisher, has launched Junior Brain Trainer for Nintendo DS to retail today. This is a stimulating and fun game to help children improve a range of important cognitive skills. It includes a wide variety of fun puzzles and quizzes set in colourful environments to promote learning and education in an entertaining way.
Created specifically for 6-11 year olds, Junior Brain Trainer gives young minds a fitness workout to help develop important key skills in reading, writing, spelling, maths, geometry, logic and problem solving. Junior Brain Trainer takes a fresh and fun approach to teaching by delivering information in bite size chunks, making it easier to digest. The structured gameplay is designed to suit a child's attention span and ensures they are continually engaged.
Users are encouraged to spend a small amount of time on the game each day to complete five different activities based around key skills. Players must successfully accomplish tasks such as completing a missing word in a sentence, finishing a maths calculation, drawing a shape or matching up pairs.
Once the five daily activities have been completed, users are rewarded by unlocking additional content, motivating them to continue to reveal further exercises. These include reading and writing activities such as fun stories, where the reader has to blow into the microphone to turn the page; Hangman, requiring a mystery word to be solved; and Alphabet, to encourage kids to practice writing the alphabet.
Players can also unlock a quiz to test their knowledge of mathematics and vocabulary, as well as a selection of entertaining games.
