Flash games are fun but sometimes they also distract too much and make it hard to go back to work. So, if you’re going to play anyway, at least play a game where you can do something more than killing aliens or collecting golden coins.
Lumosity is a mixture between a game and a brain fitness program that promises to improve your memory, attention, cognitive control and processing speed along a free 30-session course. Each session consists of 3 to 5 short games in which you’ll have to catch birds by spelling their names, find your way through a labyrinth full of monsters or solve maths operations as fast as you can.
Before starting your sessions you can take a quick test to measure your LumosIQ for a better progress tracking. Our result wasn’t too bad but we’re definitely enrolling in the course! And you’d better hurry up too, as it seems Lumosity is not going to be always free.
