  • Summary: (Known as "Left or Right Ambidextrous Challenge" in the UK/EU) Use the Touch Screen in 15 different mini-games based on speed, accuracy, association, recognition, memory and strategy. Games include: Connect the Dots, Pop the Balloons, Feel the Music, Hit the Monsters, Touch the Green Square, Save the World, Open the Safe, Trace the Shape, Navigate the Maze and many more. Book-style play has you flipping the DS over and around to develop your hand-eye coordination with both left and right hand. Master 4 single player game modes: Hand Exercises, Balance Check, Left Hand vs. Right Hand and Ambidexterity Check. Challenge a friend to 2-player mini-game tests via DS download play. Practice any activity, over 5 difficulty levels, to prepare for ambidexterity tests. Monitor personal progress and assess improvement with development percentages for each hand that appear after play. [Majesco] Expand

  1. Left Brain, Right Brain is an interesting training game idea that unfortunately suffers from a lack of depth and an occasional feeling of pointlessness.
  2. ANY sense of achievement would be nice. [Feb 2008, p.70]
  3. In the end, I think all Left Brain, Right Brain reliably tests is patience. [Feb 2008, p.102]
  4. This one was "done" in a single day.
  5. Left Brain Right Brain might be an interesting concept, but it fails to be an interesting game. Sure, it’s only $20, but that money could be better spent on a far more interesting and enjoyable collection of minigames.
  6. Left Brain Right Brain offers no interesting features, a minimal amount of variety, and a premise that develops very minimally.
  7. An uninspired, unimaginative mess of a game full of gameplay that we've seen done before and done better.
