We all lead a hectic and stressful life. But in these times, something as simple as an app can be of great help. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could exercise our brain a little bit while playing a game? Well, we’re talking about brain teasers which have been around for centuries. Given the kind of apps there, it’s not surprising that there are a ton of brain teaser apps on the Google Play Store. If you’ve been on the lookout for these games, you’d know that there are plenty available out there. Keeping this in mind, we’re going to discuss five of the best brain teaser apps out there.
So let’s have a look.
A game driven on your survival, the user here is trapped in an environment and has to find ways to escape. Users can choose from 12 rooms to escape from with each one harder than the next room. The idea here is to scour through the room, look for hints that can get you out of each room. The hints get tougher and tougher as you progress through the levels but that’s the challenge of it all.
The rooms are well laid out and everything is visible clearly. But sometimes, it’s the things that are clear that cause more confusion in our brains, and that’s the beauty of this particular brain teaser.
Although the developers only have 12 rooms so far, they’re promising more levels in the form of future updates. The best part? Well, the app is completely free to download. There are ads on board, however. Unfortunately, there are no in-app purchases to remove the ads. All things considered, this is a pretty sweet app and can surely test your brain skills. The game is compatible with devices running Android 4.0 and up.
This one’s meant for the trivia and quiz lovers among us. The app comes from the makers of popular apps like 94 Seconds and 94 Degrees, which are pretty decent apps too. Each level has a combination of one picture and two questions, which makes it even trickier. There’s even an in-game joker to help you solve some of the questions. The main highlight of the game is to find 94% of the answers that are left out from each level.
Questions are based out of words, images and expressions, so there’s an endless supply of trivia and general questions that you can answer. Questions will be in the range of “The first thing you do in the morning” with accompanying pictures and questions to solve. Just like any brain teaser, 94% starts off easy and the difficulty picks up as you progress further through your levels. There are some attractive themes that you can use to customize your gameplay experience even further.
