Summary

In a break from the razzmatazz of the game show studio, Buzz dons a lab coat and a clipboard and goes on a mission to test your brainpower. Buzz! Brain Bender takes the form of a brain training game, but includes the charming personality of the series' lead character. Included are 16 mini games across four different categories to test your mental strength – Analysis, Observation, Memory and Calculation.

Just as in the first PSP Buzz! game, you can play the game with your friends using one handheld. Pass the PSP around to take on up to six mates as you play the furiously addictive Brain Battle mode. Your progress in the game is tracked over time, and up to four profiles can be saved, making for some healthy competition between pals.

The mini games themselves take on the same style as the rest of the Buzz! games in the series, and are created with an interface that is fun, colourful and easy to understand. It's handy when you're against the clock as you hurriedly try to work out which character can reach the end of a particular maze.

As you progress, you can earn Boffin Awards for achieving certain goals – for example, you can gain an Alertness Award for maintaining a short average response time during a particular game. As you and your friends all compete to beat each other's brains and earn the awards, you can be sure that Buzz! Brain Bender has that lasting appeal.
