What's the best "Brain" game?

I'm hesitant to pick up Brain Challenge due to the price, but I see a ton of similar apps/games for free or .99 cents? Anyone ever use any of these or have an opinion on their quality?

I don't recommend Brain Challenge for a couple of reason, first it was ported from PSP and second, the price is high.

Choose Brain Toot instead.

I have Brain Challenge and think that it is an overall good title with plenty of depth. Sometimes (not always of course) you get what you pay for. Never played Brain Toot -

Dual n-back games

We played Brain Age on the Nintendo DS, and enjoy Brain Toot, but the best brain games we found feature the dual n-back game that has an actual research finding behind them to influence fluid intelligence.
IQ Boost and Neurosnack are the two current ones at the app store.

I have IQ Boost and it's excellent in clean professional polish and progressive statistics. Surprisingly for a 'clinical' game, it plays well and I find daily training worthwhile and fun. A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it!

Best,
