Atlanta, Georgia – Brain Rush, a new social brain training game, is debuting today on the Apple App Store. The application allows users to play a variety of brain challenges against their friends via Facebook. Brain Rush offers its users a range of word, number and memory games that are designed to test and develop mental ability.
Built by indie developers iCustomized, one of the main selling points of Brain Rush is that you don’t need your friends to be online in order to play a multiplayer game. Games are played in a series of rounds. Players can simply take their turns when they want and leave each other with scores to beat the next time the other is online. A simple notification lets users know when it’s their turn.
iCustomized was built on the belief that education thrives in fun and social environments. Talking about Brain Rush, founder Phillip Kung said, “We were fascinated by the idea of making learning both fun and exciting with mobile gaming. In 2012, we took this fascination, combined it with a popular social gaming structure, and Brain Rush was born.” Kung went on to say, “Our inspired vision is to create exciting educational experiences for people of all ages through the targeted development of mobile games.” This is a statement that suggests there is a lot more to come from iCustomized, with a long term strategy in the educational gaming sector.
Brain Rush appears to be a great start to iCustomized’s portfolio, with a good range of gameplay options for its users. As previously mentioned, social is at the heart of this application with the whole model built around users challenging their friends. Each game consists of 3, ninety second rounds where users tap the power of their mind and utilize engaging power ups in order to set the best possible score. The long term aim of the game is to end up at the top of your social leader board, putting even more of an emphasis on the concept of social, competitive brain training!
