Ah Encleverment Experiment, I can't think of a better game that no-one has reviewed to start my reviewing on TrueAchievements.
I think the best way to review this is to tell you all a little story of how I got my hands on this bad boy.
The year was 2009, back then we didn't have all these fancy things kids have today such as an Xbox360Slim or Ipads, but we survived. But from a distance came a game that to this day is missed by most people who played it: 1 vs. 100.
It was a beta game apparently that ran for 2 seasons, and in the 2nd season it added achievements (And a new way to torture 1 of my friends who can't button bash. Their was an achievement for button bashing to the max to make your 360 avatar dance and he couldn't do it, fun times.) Basically it gave you a question and 3 answers to pick from with 1 being the correct answer.
It was a surprisingly fun game, especially if you had a full party of friends playing together. That was until the 2nd season ended and then it was cancelled . Oh how I miss this game and I was in search of a game like it.
Eventually whilst browsing through arcade games to see whats out. I saw Encleverment. I always wondered what this game truly was considering on its release it had a tile on spotlight for about 24 hours (Which still to date is the only time i've seen this advertised). All I knew about this game was that it was by the creators of Droplitz, which has been called the most addictive game ever by some people. I downloaded the trial for this and from what I got it seemed pretty fun so I bought it.
If I had to sum up what this game is in a matter of words, it would be it is the XBLA version of Dr. Kawashima's brain training. But that wouldn't be fair on EE since it is so much more. It has 16 different rounds that test the 4 quadrants of your brain. All of them different and fun.
Their isn't so much of a plot. I guess the best you'd get out of that is the game show. Where you go against increasingly hard AI until you meet the final boss, the old man who talks to you throughout the game; Ivor Question! (Get it, Ivor...Question...)
This isn't the only part of the game though, hell no! You have Take-A-Test mode to improve your brain score, a marathon mode and multiplayer which allows you to own your friends. So basically you're getting your moneys worth when you play this.
The only other think I have to tell you about is the Mascots. In game you're represented by a mascots. A different animal (or an alien) with a different costume on. So for example, I always played as the Panda with the rock band Kiss make-up on. He tallys up all your points or in Mathletics round. Runs the race for you. All mascots you unlock all dance at the end of the game as well which is always humourous to watch to me.
Overall if you like brain training then you'll love this. I got it for a completely stupid reason and I ended up buying and enjoying every minute on it, espically online. The rounds get a little getting used to but not too much time. It is at least worth downloading the trial to see if you'll like it or not.
Well I hope you enjoyed my first review on TrueAchievements. [Insert part I say rate this positively so my ego can grow].
Hope this help you decide on whether you should get this interesting game.
