BRAIN CRAMP

Give your brain a workout!

See how far you can go before getting a
Brain Cramp.

A fun, educational game for kids and adults.

Tap all numbered bubbles in order from lowest to highest before time runs out.

The bubbles circulate on the water over the brain.

Each level adds an additional numbered bubble and more time.

There are 4 difficulties to play to challenges your number skills. Higher difficulties introduce negative numbers to the mix with less time to solve.

Each incorrect tap will spawn a nano-bot at the bottom which will sink a number on contact. This could make the difference between a successful round, and a Brain Cramp.

Share your high scores for all difficulties on Facebook and Twitter.

Brain Cramp can have up to 10 players stored and will remember each players progress and high scores for each difficulty.

GAME PLAY

start

To start, tap on the Level bubble in the middle of the screen.

start

To play each level, tap on the numbered bubbles in order from lowest to highest.

start

When tapped in the correct order, the bubble will turn green, pop out and earn you points.

start

If a bubble is tapped out of order, it will turn red, and sink. You will not be able to tap the number again until it resurfaces.

The first few times a bubble is tapped out of order, the next bubble in order will flash yellow. The number of times this will occur is based on the difficulty level played at that time. The higher the difficulty, the fewer times an out of order bubble tap will flash the correct next number.

start

Tapping a bubble out of order will also spawn a Nano-Bot.

Nano-bots will swim around the brain pan randomly. If one hits a numbered bubble, it will sink it and then dissolve itself.

A sunk bubble can sometimes make the difference between a successful round and getting a Brain Cramp.


SCORING

start

Each bubble tapped in order will award 1 point multiplied times the current level.
This will build up the current level's score.

The current level score displays in green under the overall score.

Once the level has been completed successfully, any remaining seconds on the clock are multiplied by the current level and added to the current level's score.

With the level completed, the current level's score is then added to the overall score.

start

Running out of time before all bubbles are tapped in the correct order will give you a
BRAIN CRAMP which ends the game.

Any points earned during the current level will be lost.


Bonus Seconds

start

If you can tap all of the numbered bubbles in order without making any mistakes, "+5" will light up on the time board.

The bonus time of 5 seconds will be added when the next level starts.
