App of the Week – Brain it On!
Published on March 2, 2017
A deceptively challenging puzzle game that combines the best parts of physics and art classes? Brain It On!
We haven’t been able to stop playing Brain It On! since downloading it. The game’s simple interface and surprisingly deep gameplay make it a perfect fit for daily play, whether you’re trying to kill time at a Metra station or recharge your brain for the afternoon doldrums.
Brain It On! offers dozens of physics-based challenges, each with multiple solutions. Users draw out their solutions using a finger or stylus, then watch as the game animates their blueprints to see if they really work. Don’t be surprised if it takes you a little bit of time to really get the hang of it - just about every puzzle is trickier than it seems at first glance!
Once you do have a grasp on the mechanics of the game, it’s endlessly entertaining to draw your way into and out of the built-in puzzles. And if you’re looking for another challenge, you can even design your own Brain It On levels and share them with other users; free, player-crafted levels are made available every day in the app’s community section, and leaderboards allow you to stack up your problem-solving skills against other players.
Brain It On! is free to download and play; users do have the option of purchasing the game, which removes ads, unlocks hints, and unlocks the level editor. Want to support indie developers and give this fun, addictive puzzler a shot? Brain It On! is available right now for your Android and iOS devices.
