Brain training games are nothing new, but that doesn’t stop them from being oddly enticing. Everyone wants to feel good about themselves, right? Or feel as if they’re training themselves to be better at something. Peak captures that fairly well. You’ll need to subscribe for the full benefits, but even the free build will offer you some use.
Each day, you’re given a few games to complete. These test various parts of your brain, such as your problem solving skills, language capabilities, or simply your ability to focus. They’re simple tests, only taking a couple of minutes to complete, but quite fun to do. Once you complete the session, Peak figures out where your strengths and weaknesses are, giving you a visual indication through a graph.
Keep at it, and you can see how you develop over time. Will it make you smarter? Maybe. But regardless, you’ll enjoy finding out. The games are fairly varied, and despite their simplcitiy they're quite gripping to dip into for a few minutes each day. You can always chase your high score, too. Much like exercising, it’s nice to feel like you’re getting somewhere through regular training, and Peak is laid out in an appealing manner to ensure that’s possible.
