Great but!

But somewhat lacking when it comes to the Swedish version of the game, which I assume is generally translated from the original app. The languageoriented games use very rare and awkward prefixes and letters which I would say becomes a true difficulty penalty to the average person. I consider myself strong in language, my grades adds validity to this claim but from the profile reading which displays the different areas, language is displayed as one of my weakest sides. If my english is well above average among swedes, Swedish is still my native and strongest language. It is a challanging game and its fun to see myself progress and find my highest pleateus (some of the minigames I can't seem to progress much further in right now). Very well developers and thought-through. I hope that the game sometime uppdates its statistics on different profession (right now I rate higher than avg top tier professions in this game in all areas, which i personally doubt). So please, gain more current statistics and maybe a simple way for me to add myself to my profession (nurse/reg nurse) so i can add to the statistics myself also.

Making exercise entertaining, regardless of what you're exercising, is a useful way to keep people coming back, and this app makes use of this idea to engage users and keep them wanting more. This is what makes the free version of Peak - Brain Training so frustrating. Once you play through a game, you may want to try again to increase your score, especially early on as you're just learning how each game works. Free users can play the games in their daily training only one time each, without access to the other games. So, while some people may not mind the limited free access, others will find it frustrating. If these sort of brain games are your thing, the subscription may be worth your while, as these are both high quality and varied. One thing that users will likely agree on is that some of the instructions aren't clear, making it difficult to do well on your first playthrough. These tidbits are doled out in tips at the end, which will be especially irritating to free users who don't have the option to replay with their newfound info. It's hard to say whether Peak - Brain Training really does anything for the health of your brain, but you can be sure that your time spent with it won't be mindless. That's more than a lot of apps can offer!

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
