It really doesn't feel like Hot Brain is actually doing anything beneficial for your brain, and since the minigames aren't that fun on their own, what's the point? Some minigames even seem like rip-offs, like Cruise Ship, in which you keep track of stick figures entering and exiting a boat. It's a direct rip-off of Brain Age's Head Count, except with a boat instead of a house. At least Hot Brain did take one good cue from Brain Age, as it tracks your progress over time, which is more than can be said for some other lackluster brain games. You'll get at least some satisfaction from seeing your gradual progress over time... until you remember that it just means you're getting better at playing so-so minigames.
