Summary: You can usually figure games out, but these ones, the instructions are terrible and there's no intuitiveness. I felt bad giving this to my father, who has Alzheimer's, to help him with his memory! It made him feel very stupid. Know what?, I told him it made me feel more stupid! Do't get this unless you're more into Suduko and stuff like that.
Summary: If you enjoy puzzles, you might think you would love this game. I know I thought that. However, within 15 minutes of playing multiple modes, I rage quit for good and am hoping Gamestop will let me return this piece of junk game. (Maybe I will show them Sudoku) As I said in the title, poor programming makes this title unplayable. I am surprised anyone gave this a 2 or above rating. Sudoku's handwriting system is awful. Like another reviewer said, 6s are interpreted as 9s.
Summary: I wish there were even more picture logic puzzles!, They were a lot of fun, and some were easy and relaxing others were a challenge, but still enjoyable. I would buy this game again, if I had to do it over.
Summary: I enjoy number puzzles and I have done them in magazines, newspapers and on my NDS for years. This game is just terrible. The instructions are awful. Even when you can figure out what to do (as in Number Safe), the game turns out to be more tedious than interesting. The ones that you think you understand the instructions for (Towers, e.g.
Only 1 game worth playing, overall it's not worth purchasing.

Summary: Being that I enjoyed the first installment of Challenge Me: Brain Puzzles, I have to say I looked forward to playing the sequel. However I found myself thoroughly disappointed in this game. The first installment of Challenge Me:Brain Puzzles contained two different puzzles; Sudoku and a Picross type game. The interface was simple and the drawings were crude (and sometimes repetitive), but overall I found the game to be entertaining.
Summary: My husband bought me this game for Christmas to play on my sons DS. If you understand how to play the games, I'm sure it's alright, but the directions for how to play the games aren't very good. Sudoku is fairly self explanitary, but the rest of the games I can't even figure out what the point of them is to even start challenging my brain. I am a pretty intelligent person who is good at math and puzzles, but this just didn't cut it.
Summary: 500 Picross games and 500 Sudoku games on the cartridge. These are no-frill games, but they work and they are fun. They are puzzle games and are played as puzzle games - no action, no adventure, just puzzles. Picross games go by other names including Paint by Number. Properly constructed, they are 100% solvable by logic. You use number clues to fill in spaces in a grid to "paint" a picture. These are well constructed and they come in several levels of difficulty.
