    From the creators of Pac-man comes a title that is hard to classify as a game: Flash Focus Vision training in minutes a day. Flash Focus is in the vein of the new casual brain training games offered by Nintendo such as Brain Age.

    Brain Age is far more believable as a brain trainer than Flash Focus is an eye strengthener, even if neither will really make you smart or see clearly. Flash Focus just seems like it's just more quick reflex and memory retention challenge…and there's just not that many of them to make a full Nintendo product.
  2. Nintendo simply grabbed a bunch of corny challenges and copied Brain Age's presentation, and the result is an average game that probably does nothing to replace our coke bottle lenses.
  3. For a simple little collection of fun minigames, $20 sounds just about right. If you've enjoyed other games of this ilk, you'll find Flash Focus to be a refreshing alternative.
