After the first exam I kept at it. I went through a couple of the different activities. I now know why I was considered almost 100% from the start. After working to get better scores on each of the activities, there was no noticeable increase in the usefulness of my left hand.
Some of the activities were enjoyable while others lacked any thrill what so ever.
I recommend borrowing this game and seeing if this is for you. If you get almost a perfect score from the first exam, pass over this game because it will not help.
As a statistic, this reviewer broke her hand while playing a Nitendo Wii (go ahead and laugh... I did it while bowling). Being that I broke my dominant hand, I was actually forced to use my non dominant hand for many tasks. After that, I decided that I actually DO want to become a little more adept with my non dominant hand and this game may actually help.
I suppose after my being forced to use my non dominant hand, I'm not that surprised that I actually did quite well with the non dominant hand but there is room for improvement and I will actually try in order to be a little more comfortable in doing so.
Why climb Mt. Everest? "Because it's there". Why become ambidextrous? "Because I can".
This game has a wide variety of small / fast games. Each one works on fine motor control of your hand: speed, accuracy, and fine movements. The expectation is that you will do the games with your weak hand (e.g., left for most people) more often than your strong hand (e.g., right for most people). If you tend toward "monkey", a few of the games can be frustrating when performed with your weaker hand.
Here are some of the games:
- quickly draw a line to connect three or more dots
- quickly and accurately press a "note" that lights up, to play a song. Some musical training helps make this one fun.
- accurately press the green square that lights up
- an arcade style game of hit-the-mole
- scratch the grey surface off of a hidden word (like a "what have I won" ticket)
- guide a ball through a maze without hitting the walls.
The games are about 15 seconds to 50 seconds long, with most games being around 30 seconds.
Fun, fast, and entertaining. So, what are the advantages of strengthening your weak hand? Well, if you have any sort of repetative injury, you can take a lot of stress off of your dominant hand by performing more tasks with your weak hand. For example, my right hand would hurt when I used the mouse too much; by moving the mouse to my left hand, I avoided wrist pains and serious complications. That was tricky for the first week, and this game would certainly have made my life easer.
Are you a man or a monkey? Play this game and find out!
Anyhow, as expected I did much better while using my right hand, and the scores weren't quite double, but almost. I hesitate to call this a game, as it really isn't much fun, but more a series of tests, with the hopeful promise at becoming apt in a skill-set you lack. Speaking of, why would I want to become ambidextrous in the first place? What's the point? I can see how this cartridge may be of use to an amputee, but for most of the population, what's the advantage of being able to write with either hand, or perhaps ....? bat switch stance? play reverse guitar? I honestly don't see the point. Maybe this would be useful for you (if it works), but I don't see myself using this program that often.
