Why has nobody seen this yet?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Good lord... Judging from the screenshots, are these questions aimed at 8 year olds or something? Or are they just assuming video games have just turned the average gamers brain to sludge?

Game Impressions

Pretty solid so far. I guess it isn`t as bad as some may think it might be.

The price has dropped but is it worth getting?

If you own an Nintendo 3D/3DS/3DSXL or any other Handheld where you can buy Dr Kawashima's Brain or any Professor Layton Game then no. Otherwise watch the Gameplay Trailer to get a better feeling for what you might get for 1.99

I agree! The art-style of the games is really unique and there is enough variety. There's a clash though, between the art style of the games themselves and that of the menu's etc. That seems a bit weird, but it's not a problem.

If you don't like these kind of "brain training" games this game will not change your mind, and if you really hate the cutesy presentation you might not want to get this either, but otherwise this looks like a good purchase, especially now that it's on sale for $0.99 or your equivalent currency.

BTW, I cannot believe they actually put this:
Internet Freaks - This gem of a game will definitely lead to a much more developed society in terms of IQ
in the app description.
