Set up much like the Brain Age series, each player creates a profile. There are daily activities you perform to improve your skills, and then you do a series of tests to determine your "eye age". Your aim is to hit 20 years old, representing a young, healthy pair of eyes.
The tests cover a range of eye activities. There is the peripheral vision test, where you focus on a central spot but have to see the items around that. There are quick moving tests where you have to track a fast-moving object and remember where it ends up. There are reflex type activities where you stylus-click on objects, hit a moving baseball, swat at a ping pong ball. The more activities you work through, the more training session styles you unlock.
I definitely see the value of these activities, and like that it tracks your progress over time. However, I have the same complaint with this game as I do with Brain Age - and you would think that by now they would have fixed these issues.
First, the "discussion" involved with each game is maddeningly repetitive and annoying. You have to page through every single prompt. Surely by now they should have a "discussion off" option in the options menu!
Next, when they kick you up to hard, you don't get any credit in the tracking system. So if you go from easy games to hard games, and don't do 100% on the hard games, they berate you for being less good even though you are now MORE good, i.e. beating harder tests.Read more ›
Update 10 months later: I've now had my Nintendo DS Lite for 10 months and not to knock Brain Age/Brain Age 2, but they haven't held my interest or remained as much fun as Flash Focus. There are more games and most of them remain somewhat challenging. I don't know if using Flash Focus truly improves your vision, but I will say it's given me increased awareness of how the various aspect of my vision deteriorate when I'm fatigued. This is my favorite of all my games!
There are 10 "core training" exercises to test your various types of vision, which are varied and challenging. You get 10 attempts or segments to each of the 10 exercises. You start out at the slowest, (skill) Level 1. If you respond correctly, you will advance to the next Level, which increases the difficulty. If you respond incorrectly, it will often return you to the prior Level. Since there are 10 sections/attempts, the highest Level is 10. The first time you take each training exercise each day, the game records your results and then graphs them in subsequent days. While you can take do the exercise more than one time a day, it will only record your results the first time. When your final results reach a certain level, you will be offered a "Hard" version to go with the "Normal" level of difficulty to choose from for that exercise. "Normal" and "Hard" results are tallied separately for the first attempt at either level exercise each day.Read more ›
AS A PARENT ... this was a great investment! He likes to play it and rather than it being a mindless waist of time ... he is continuing to sharpen his vision skills doing many activities that are very similar to those that he practiced in his weekly therapy sessions. We could have saved thousands if this product had been around two years ago.
