Clockwork Brain 2.0 

 

Clockwork Brain 2.0 is one of those games that is absolutely and totally ruined by the repeat pay to play model. I know thousands of families that would happily pay five to ten dollars one time to play Clockwork Brain 2.0. Instead it was set up to let families download it for free (Internet usage fees apply so it is not actually free), play a few levels and then demand money or leave it alone for so many hours.

If I can not play from start to finish without giving them advertising access to my Facebook account, or pay every couple of hours I won't play it. I have already deleted Clockwork Brain 2.0 from my iPhone because of the repeat pay to play poor design. The replay and gameplay are decimated thanks to that model. It is also insulting that anyone would come to Family Friendly Gaming expecting a review when we have been so public in our disgust over repeat pay to play games.

It is bad enough there is no physical copy of Clockwork Brain 2.0. The disposable nature of digital downloads has been slowly decaying the entire video game industry. The repeat to pay apps have been rotting the entire industry at its core. Like many of ya'll out there I won't spend my time on games that want me to pay every so many hours. Or that limit how often I can play them.

The brain games in Clockwork Brain 2.0 are actually interesting and fun. Clockwork Brain 2.0 feels like a Brain Age free app. The sounds are good. The music is pleasant. Clockwork Brain 2.0 does rush family members in all of the timed mini games. There are relaxed ones here and there. The robotic theme with helper bots is kinda cool. I like how they can give us a few more seconds.

It has been debated for years if any of these brain games actually improve our minds. I will admit I drank the kool-aid when Brain Age first came out. I am now much more skeptical of the good these games do. I will say that games like Clockwork Brain 2.0 do not hurt our cognitive abilities. Why did they go the despised, dreaded, hated, and horrible way of the repeat pay to play?
