Brain game "Gem Breaker": What is it?

Gem Breaker is a brain training game To advance in the game, we will have to aim the ball by moving the lower platform so that it breaks the bricks when it hits them. However, as the level of complexity of this mind training game increases, the cognitive demands will increase.

The difficulty of this brain game will automatically adjust depending on the user's training. Gem Breaker is a scientific resource designed to continuously measure cognitive performance and automatically adjusts difficulty, optimizing brain training. The brain game Gem Breaker was designed for children, adults, and seniors who want to train and stimulate essential cognitive skills.

How can the brain game "Gem Breaker" improve your cognitive abilities?

When training the brain with brain games like Gem Breaker, you stimulate specific neural patterns. Consistently repeating and training this pattern can help create new synapses and neural circuits able to reorganize and recover weak or damaged cognitive functions.

This game is indicated for anyone looking to challenge and improve cognitive performance.

Which cognitive skills does "Gem Breaker" train?

The cognitive skills trained in this brain game are:

  • Divided Attention: During Gem Breaker there can be situations in which we have to attend simultaneously to more than one object (for example, several balls at the same time). In these cases, we will need our divided attention, and by playing this mind game, we would be stimulating it. A good divided attention allows us to perform more than one activity simultaneously. We use this cognitive ability in class, for example, when taking care of different children at once.
  • Hand-eye Coordination: It is essential that we move the mouse correctly so that the platform moves to where we want it to go. This will require our hand-eye coordination, which can be stimulated by practicing Gem Breaker. Having this cognitive ability in good shape helps you perform activities that require precision with your hands, for example using a mouse on a computer.
  • Estimation: We need to calculate the distances and speeds of the ball and how they will react when they hit the stimuli. A poor estimation would prevent us from giving approximate answers to certain problems when we do not have a safe solution available. We use this cognitive ability in our daily lives to hit a target or to know when to stop.

Other relevant cognitive skills are:

  • Spatial Perception: In this mind game, we will have to correctly manage the distances and spaces between the bricks and the balls. By playing Gem Breaker at the appropriate level, it is possible to improve this cognitive capacity and help us to correctly interpret the positions of the stimuli around us. This cognitive skill is important in reading as the order and position of each letter is critical for extracting the meaning of the text.
  • Processing Speed: This game requires being quick to interpret where the ball is going in order to move. By practicing Gem Breaker it is possible to strengthen this processing speed. Training our processing speed through this cognitive stimulation exercise can help us to solve complex mental tasks in less time, such as when we have to mentally translate a text into another language.
  • Focused Attention: In Gem Breaker we must be able to detect the stimuli that we have to break and focus on each one of them. For this we will need our focused attention. Playing this game helps improve your focused attention. We use this cognitive ability on a daily basis when detecting the presence of cars or gas station signs on the road.
  • Planning: In this mind game we can organize ourselves and apply strategies, such as deciding which stimuli to start with, or which improvements to make to complete the level. In addition, the further you go in Gem Breaker, the more useful this cognitive capacity will be for you. This mind game helps improve your planning cognitive skills. Improving this cognitive capacity is important for sequencing and prioritizing our future activities efficiently. Strengthening this cognitive capacity is essential to organize ourselves efficiently, such as when we plan our study or workday.
  • Updating: You have to follow the path of the ball (or balls) to prevent it from falling and making sure you're getting it back where you want it. With this mental exercise it is possible to reinforce our udpating. Improving this cognitive skill is important to ensure that our efforts are successfully approaching our goal. We use updating when we find that we are acting as intended to meet, for example, our working hours.
  • Inhibition: Its normal when the ball bounces unexpectantly, which is why we need to leave our plan and adapt to the change in direction. This helps strenghten our inhibition capacity. Strengthening our inhibition is essential to stop automatic behaviors or those we have already initiated. A good inhibition would allow us, for example, to avoid distractions while working.
  • Shifting: The trajectory of the ball sometimes changes radically when it hits a stimulus, so we have to be flexible and adapt the cursor position to the unexpected change. In addition, at higher levels, the demands on our cognitive shifting will be greater. Being mentally flexible can be beneficial to adapt to change or new situations in our environment. Cognitive shifting allows us to change previous ideas and thoughts by incorporating new learning.
  • Response Time: Often we will need to be quick to keep the ball from falling, which depends directly on how long it takes us to react. By practicing this mind game we can train our response time. This is a crucial cognitive skills when we play sports, because most of them require our reflexes and the time it takes to give a response.

What happens when you don't train your cognitive abilities?

Our brains are designed to save resources and be as efficient as possible, which is why it erases the connections that aren't being used. This is why if a certain cognitive skill isn't used frequently, the brain doesn't supply it with the resources it needs, and it becomes weaker and weaker. This makes us less able to use the weakened cognitive skill, making us less efficient in activities in our daily lives.
