    What is Mind Games 2
    Mind Games 2 is a fun and entertaining game with mini games and puzzles that test your ears, eyes, memory, general knowledge and even a little maths skill. It has a large range of different mini games which test your skills and knowledge and keeps track of all your scores. The game also has bonus mini games which can be unlocked by completing and achieving good scores in other mini games.

    Features
    Mind Games 2 features over 20 fun and exciting mini games and puzzles with 24 unlockable game modes and 6 bonus games! The game also features achievements, graphs and statistics that track how you have been doing in the mini games. The game has a ranking system from Novice to Genius which is calculated by the scores you get in mini games. You are allowed to create 5 different character profiles, which allows you to play with your friends and family. Best of all, the game tests your skills used in everyday life and it can possibly even help improve these skills.

    Interface
    When you start the game, you are greeted with a screen that has 5 rows and 3 buttons. These rows are for character profiles and you have the ability to create new profiles and even delete them. Once you have created an account, you are taken to the main menu with 5 main buttons which include Play Game, Help, Options, About and More Games. When you tap Play Game, you are instantly taken to the test, this is only because it is your first time playing. Once you have done the test, the next time you tap Play Game, you are taken to a screen with test, free play, bonus and statistics. Help explains what is MGI, the MGI stages, the test, free play, statistics and bonus game. When you tap Option, you have only one setting you can change and that is the volume. About just shows you the credits and More Games shows you the other games developed by their company. There is also 1 button that takes you back to the character profile selection.

    Gameplay
    Mind Games 2 is similar to most IQ testing games but it has some unique mini games that make it more enjoyable than others. One great thing about Mind Games 2 is that whenever the game is loading, it shows you some interesting facts about the human body. However, once you have played the game a bit, you do see the same facts coming up repeatedly. I personally love the traffic mini game where you have to find that car is driving fastest. Most mini games start off easy but as you progress to harder levels, they start to become harder. Although there is large range of mini games, some do get a little boring as they do often last for a while and it makes you do the same thing over and over again. Bonus mini games are often extremely hard and could sometimes get you really frustrated. But with over 20 mini games, in which 24 are unlockable, the game keeps you coming back for more as you try and unlock all the mini games and become a Genius.

    Controls
    The controls in Mind Games 2 are the simplest a game can get, all the game requires you to do is tap and this control scheme is perfect for an app like this. While you're playing a mini game, you can easily pause it by just tapping on the pause button. When you tap Pause, you are greeted with 3 buttons and the option to change the volume. The buttons are Help, which explains how to play the game, Resume and Quit, which obviously resumes and quits the mini game.

    Visuals
    Mind Games 2's menus have a simple and neat design. However, it does look really plain and lack in color. The statistics screen is designed nicely and while inside the free play screen, there are some nice glowing effects. The visuals for the mini games are more up to scratch with the color and design. There is also some nice effects while playing some mini games.

    Audio
    The audio in Mind Games 2 can often get a little boring over time, especially the one in the main menu. However, there is a variation of background music for different mini games and there are also some nice sound effects that go along with the effects in the game.

    Replay Value
    Mind Games 2 starts off as a great game you would want to come back to, but once you have unlocked all the mini games and played them all, the game gets boring and repetitive. Some people may want to hop on and off the game once in a while to take a test but other than that, I don't think many people would play the game again once they have unlocked and played all the mini games.
