3 Android Apps That Will Sharpen Your Wits Beyond Your Expectations

3 Android Apps That Will Sharpen Your Wits Beyond Your Expectations

Think – A game that really makes you use your brain!

June Software Inc has made a game using a very intriguing concept. Before there were words and languages, human beings used to communicate only using symbols. Language, in a way, complicates things as much as it simplifies things. The objective of the game is have you look at a bunch of images and figure out what idea Think is trying to communicate with you.

This innovative Android app is a trivia guessing game. The game provides you with a series of illustrations which you have to guess. The minimalistic and simplistic designs of the illustrations are what make the game so pleasing to the eye and fun to play.

Think attempts to gradually teach the player how to think visually instead of out loud. The player then uses what he/she learns to construct further complicated ideas during the later levels.

The game takes you through different levels. Each level teaching you a different symbol and asking you to guess different things, For example, there are levels where you have to guess Movies, others where you have to decipher abstract emotions or iconic symbols, etc.

With over 360 engaging puzzles spread across 30 fascinating chapters, this game is sure to rope you in. It’s positioned as a family game, which you can play with your family and friends.

Think is a game that uses a very smart and contextually aware hint system and AI, which helps guide you to the right answer. It gives you hints and clues as opposed to just opening up a few letters leaving you to fill in the blanks (which most guessing game apps do). You will definitely find yourself falling in love with puzzles once again and racking your brains to get the correct answers.

Due to the beautiful visuals and music from an award winning composer, Jim Guthrie, Think never has a dull moment. You can peruse through it for hours at a time, as the game kindles your inner child while solving the puzzles.
