An educational game

I bought the game last night, but I don't think it was at the launch price ($3.99 AU)... Edit: Guess I was too quick off the mark/too keen (oh well, don't regret my purchase).

Anyway, to the game itself - I would class it as a trivia like game. From what I've played, the game is structured thus:
1. You're presented with 3 definitions/defenses that you need to learn.
2. Using the 3 definitions that you just learned, identify which one is being used with the following 10 statements/situations presented one after the other (you get points for each one you get right - this is achieved by tapping on an icon).
3. Do a therapy session with a particular character and identify which of the definitions is being presented to you from their dialogue (touch the appropriate icon) - this section seems to convey what a therapy session is like with the dialogue between you and the character filled with the appropriate shrink like "talk" (not that I would personally know, but from what I've seen in the movies ).

The further you progress, the more definitions you learn and you then need to apply all you've learnt to subsequent therapy sessions (ie. you're given more choices to choose from in the sessions, so you can't just forget what you've learnt from previous sessions...).

It's a well produced game with nicely animated graphics and sounds (there's even some speech throughout the game).

If you've ever wondered what it's like to be a shrink, give this game a go, you won't be disappointed... I should also mention it's a very challenging game too - you definitely need to think and understand all the information being presented to you
