Colourblind Memory Test Game Released in an iOS App

Product: Colourblind Memory Test Game
Top Line: Mobile app development studio What's AppMaker has added to its collection of mobile games with the Colourblind Memory Test Game, which it describes as “a brain-stimulating app that builds color recognition and memory skills, along with some simple mathematics.”
Developed for all iOS devices, the Colourblind Memory Test Game is fully compatible with the Apple Watch. The watch app features a slight blur to the graphics to add to the degree of difficulty.
"We design all of our games to be challenging and rewarding," explained Okorafor Ikeagwu, developer at What's AppMaker. “The Colourblind Memory Test Game is just the latest example. The game taps into people's recognition and recall skills, and delivers a sense of reward at its successful conclusion. We hope players will share the game with friends and family around the world, because friendly competition is healthy, too.”
Close Up: The color puzzles and math problems in the Colourblind Memory Test Game offer a way to train the brain to recognize colors more quickly and retain that memory for longer. The game incorporates the familiar tapping and swiping functionality, and users can see where they are within the game with a row of white dots at the bottom of the screen. Like the best mobile games, the Colourblind Memory Test Game can be played anywhere, any time the user has a few extra moments.
The Colourblind Memory Test Game uses the same Ishihara plates that one finds at optometrist offices, with a field of colored dots and a number embedded within. However, the game does not replace a doctor's diagnosis in the case of actual colorblindness.
Vital Stats: The Colourblind Memory Test Game is available now on iTunes.
