If you enjoy logic puzzles, brain teasers, and trick questions, Brain Benders might be right up your alley. Brain Benders offers daily brain stimulating puzzles, some of which might have you scratching your head for a little while before figuring out the answer, while others are less difficult and at times not brainy enough.
With sixteen iPhone apps under their belt, developer E.E. Flobes offers another addition to their widely varied App Store selection. Brain Benders offers a new logic puzzle or trick question every day. This can be an added plus to users who look for a new question every day to test their cerebral capacities.
Trying to figure out the answer can make the daily commute more enjoyable or it can be a welcome distraction from daily routines. But for those looking to use this app as a game to play with friends on a road trip or by yourself with some time to spare, the fact that there will only ever be one riddle every 24 hours will defeat the game's usefulness.
If the questions were built in, the capacity would be limited and soon enough one would stumble over the same questions. But maybe it would be a great improvement for an update to make it possible to store the riddles within Brain Benders so that the user gets fresh content every day but is not limited to looking at only one riddle per day.
Looking at this app for over a week to see the variety of the questions was fun and there are some in there that will make you bend your brain for a little while. But a lot of the content are trick questions, which seem slightly less intelligent and require no true logic problem solving skills. With room for improvement, Brain Benders is overall a fun app for anyone who enjoys a little trivial cerebral challenge.
