The company says the games serves as an easy solution for keeping the brain alert, offering different levels to choose from based on a player's abilities and needs along with a simple scoring system to evaluate the level of brain activity. The title features 20 different games designed to train certain areas of brain activity based on five categories of exercises: Memory, Visual, Logic, Math and Focus. At the end of each test, players receive marks based on accuracy and speed and a diagram summarizes their performance in each category so that players can monitor the progress of their brain training daily.

The game allows the development of a personalized relationship with the coach and he or she becomes the player's constant companion throughout the game, according to the company.
