  • Summary: Fire up your mind with Hot Brain, a game that engages the mind through a series of puzzles and challenges designed to raise the activity and temperature of your brain. Hot Brain presents challenging and fun mental activities that help ignite your mind in areas like logic, memory, math, language and concentration. The game allows you to test your skills in several single player modes or you can play with up to three people via ad-hoc connection. Whether you're an expert or a beginner, a robust tutorial mode makes the game accessible and enjoyable to people of all ages. Hot Brain features five challenging categories with hundreds of timed challenges in each that test your brain powers in logic, memory, math, language and concentration. The controls are simple and intuitive, and are geared toward fast-reaction gameplay. Each potential answer to a given Challenge is mapped to a controller button, allowing even a novice PSP user to start playing immediately. [Midway] Expand

  1. Hot Brain is a nice departure from the usual reflex games that you'd most likely be playing on your PSP. Although the puzzle tests are timed, the game's presentation is light-hearted and not intimidating to play.
  2. If taking an I.Q. test shoots a thrill down your spine, you'll get a huge kick out of Hot Brain. [Sept 2007, p.82]
  3. Hot Brain manages to stand out in an overcrowded genre due to its charm.
  4. There is an addicting quality to Hot Brain to try to do better, in a similar way to Brain Age. However, Hot Brain also suffered in the same way that Brain Age did, in that I lost interest in it.
  5. Binge on it and you'll be done before your thinking walnut's sizzling, as there simply aren't enough different mini-games to satisfy in the long-term. [Sept 2007, p.107]
  6. 60
    Hot Brain's biggest disappointment is the way it squanders an opportunity to treat with IQ-themed mini-game genre with Wario Ware-style irreverence.
  7. 50
    If you're really into the whole brain training thing, Hot Brain is a perfectly serviceable game. Just be aware that you're not getting a lot of bang for your buck. You'll have fun, but once you finish a couple of rounds, you'll start to wish that you could have more.
