How's your brain doing today? Is it bright and refreshed, with all synapses firing, ready to tackle the demands of the day? Or is it in a thick foggy haze punctuated by a few nervous twitches, screaming out to return to its slumber? Let's find out, shall we? Developer Ninjadoodle (known for their click-tracking, one button offerings) presents their latest challenge to your gray matter called Bustabrain, a short amusing title that should appeal to puzzle and minigame fans alike.
Bustabrain's gameplay takes Ninjadoodle's One Button Bob technology and merges it with a series of 39 Warioware-esque mini brain games. There are various puzzles inside, including rebuses, matchstick movers, memory games, pattern recognition sequences, and even a few action bits. Each game only requires mouse clicks or drag-and-drops, and shouldn't take you longer than a minute. There are a few levels, however, that are more involved, literally requiring you to think outside the box.
Overall, Ninjadoodle's latest game is a fun, limited offering. With its cute, simple mix of graphic styles and swinging soundtrack, the game is entertaining to play through. Its replay value only consists of beating your last total click score, however, which becomes much easier the second time around. Regardless, Bustabrain is a nice game to beat on your break, and might even help get that squishy stuff up there in your head moving again.
Update: Ninjadoodle has responded to the feedback about the bubble levels and made some changes. Those levels should be less frustrating now. :)
