Applelinks has posted a review of Freeverse's Big Bang Brain Games, a collection of six brain twisting puzzle titles. Applelinks gave the game collection a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Most of the games above you probably know by different titles. NovaSweeper is Minesweeper, for example (but they're right; it's never looked this good). Remembrance is that game where you flip over two cards in an effort to find a match, but only realize your three-year-old kid has a better memory than you. Sudoku is better known as that game you see in little magazines at the grocery store check out line but you've never bothered to play because it looks too much like math. Echo is Simon.

Now, if you're at all like me (and admit it, you know you are), you'll end up playing a few of these in heavy rotation while rarely touching the others. This is one of the drawbacks to Big Bang Brain Games, as it'll feel as if you're paying for six games when you could've paid less for fewer titles. Yes, $29.95 is a fair price to pay for six games, considering shareware versions of many of these games are available for about $20 each, but I would've been fine with never having to install Echo, for example.

Each game is very well designed and animated, and is accompanied by either Sol, Luna or Wisdom; your typically smart-mouthed but good natured Freeverse characters. Hovering next to the game board, they'll explain the game, then offer praise, criticism and jokes as you play. They become part of the challenge, as they'll sometimes try to break your concentration. Annoying? No. The jokes are half the fun, and they'll make you forget you're playing games that are actually exercising your prefrontal cortex.
