Brain Force

NoahAvailable on Uminin's Flash Game Zone, home of several other previously reviewed works, the curiously named Brain Force is not very intellectual. No, Brain Force is purely an elegant exercise in agility, a beautiful example of how little is needed to make a successful twitch game.

Brain ForceThe playing field consists of a 6x6 grid of tiles which, randomly and at increasing speeds, flip over. You must reset each flipped tile by clicking on it before the attached timer runs down and explodes. Flipping a tile earns you 100 points. You can earn a Speed Bonus (+500) if you flip it immediately after the timer is exposed, before any dots are visible. The dangerously tempting Bravery Bonus (+2000) can be won by flipping the tile after the 10th dot on the timer appears. The game ends when a single tile is destroyed. Afterwards, your score is ranked and, cryptically, an IQ is assigned.

The rules of Brain Force are simple and the end is inevitable - you will fail. Similar to classics like Space Invaders or Qix, Brain Force is successful in spite - or because - of it's simplicity. The only goal is to do a bit better than the time before and, if you've got an itchy mouse finger, sometimes that's enough. Click.

I hate these type of games, so I don't feel bad cheating if I play:

Just keep pressing and to play forever ('Cause it's a Flash game...)

Misses the whole point, I know.

Okay...that didn't display right:

Press TAB and SPACE over and over to play forever.

I just got 124300 at level 16 (rank E, IQ 98.43). Lots of Brave Bonuses. Unfortunately I'm stuck playing with a touchpad, so I think there's a lot of untapped potential...

Mikey - It's probably not so simple; people still replay Galaga today, though I'm sure nostalgia factors into that. Replay Value is a very personal thing, I think.

Sneaky tip, Hiram .. but, who wants to play forever? =]

Winner is me,

A grade, hint is that if you let the ball get red before you poke it you get 4x as much as you would get for clicking it early.

Jay you are amazing. My number one site for many months now! I wanted to say that the music for this game is so similar to the opening of the song Dirty Diana by Michael Jackson--has anyone else picked up on this?

The end the game sems to be encouraging (certainly a lot more Brain Forcing than just clicking the squares as soon as they come up) is going for the bravery bonus every time. Got 404k rank AAA this time through.

Also, it's easy to mistake the 1's for 7's in your IQ score, don't call it too high. I've gotten near 130.
