Series Big Brain Academy Series

Take part in a series of mental tests to assess the weight of your brain. Dr. Lobe talks you through the academy's challenges and compares your brain weight to various professions.

Each test provides three challenges from five categories: Think, Analyze, Compute, Identify, Memorize. You have to try and solve as many of the questions as you can within the time limit. The questions get progressively more difficult, but if you get a question wrong then the difficulty steps back a level.

As well as the Test mode, you can play any of the games in the Practice mode, or play with up to 8 players in wireless single-cart multiplayer.
