Blinken: a simple video game to improve your memory


flash is one of those video games that can help those people who have memory problems. In addition, doing this type of exercise can also help prevent or delay dementia problems or other neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. Even if you don't have memory problems, it is still entertainment for other people ...

flash is based on a well-known electronic video game released in 1978, as is the famous Simon. In it, users are challenged to remember the sequence of colors that are happening on the screen. It begins with simple sequences and it will progressively complicate so that it is increasingly difficult to determine the order of the four different colored buttons in which they were lit.

For that, they start lighting up the colored buttons in sequence random. The user must observe and then repeat the same sequence of lights in the correct order. If the player succeeds in remembering the sequence, then they move on to the next one, which will be identical, but with an additional step, and so on until the sequence becomes more and more complicated.

If unsuccessful, the player loses and must start over with the initial sequence. In that way the goal is to improve your memory with each attempt and get the more points the better (or measure your memory with someone, to see who gets better scores). The highest score is remembering a sequence of 8 lights, with a maximum of 8 points, one for each successful sequence.

Well, if you are interested in this game, you can find it in many repos or in the app stores of the distros. What's more, it is part of KDE, so if you want more information about it, you can visit this web.
