Keep your brain young! Research has shown that exercising your brain is as important as exercising your body. Stay young and keep your memory sharp by challenging and stimulating your brain.
Bumfoozle is an engaging puzzle consisting of twelve uniquely shaped pieces and a variety of puzzle board sizes that you can place them in. There are ten levels, getting progressively harder. After finding a specific number of solutions at each level, you earn the privilege of going on to the next higher level. There are over two thousand solutions for level ten.
Compete with others by having your scores reported in Apple's Game Center™
If you are impatient, and want to immediately start working at the harder levels, you may purchase the "Impatient Bumfoozler Cure" within the app itself.

"Brain training is the concept that exercising the brain helps keep it fit, in a similar way to going to the gym helps to keep your body fit," explains Dr Gareth Moore, a specialist in artificial intelligence and the author of more than 20 books on brain training. "The central principle of brain training is that cognitive exercises not only help improve your ability at the task you're doing, but also improve your overall mental fitness. This can help counter a natural decline in brain function that comes with ageing." Moore suggests we play puzzles and games, travel to new places and try to do something new every so often.
