Benefits of Playing Unlock the Block Shape & Space Training – Make logical connections throughout the game by examining various shapes and how they fit together, as well as quickly analyze available space.
Memory Training – Exercise your ability to remember and recall information more quickly. Since the shapes appear randomly, you will not be able to memorize the order in which they are placed. Rather, you will have to stretch your brain to remember each shapes specific location. You'll know this is working, when each time you play a level you get faster at completing the block.
Perception – This is your minds ability to recall certain details, rather than an entire event (block in our case). You'll practice this when you are strategizing the placement of shapes within the block, particularly when you get to more challenging levels that have more pieces.
Creative Thinking – The best way to become creative is to BE creative! Logical thinking is often based on assumptions. Creative thinking abandons assumptions! Learn to think outside the box. The levels do not always result in perfectly symmetrical quilt blocks, so sometimes you have to use your imagination!
Improve Concentration – Gain control over involuntary muscle movements. Play with purpose. Once you know what the quilt block is, you can focus on placing each shape correctly.
Visualization – This is how your brain sees something, an image in our minds. Being able to "see" the quilt block in your mind, may help you complete the level faster. Visualization comes more easily when you have all the elements above working together.
Cognitive Functions – This encompasses knowledge, attention, memory, judgment, evaluation, reasoning, problem solving, decision making & comprehension. Basically, all of the above.
