Running a simple little price point – I mean, you can’t complain about a measly £4.19 price tag, even less so when that is discounted immediately from launch – Active Neurons 3 – Wonders of the World will see you tasked with actioning three distinct steps: collecting energy, charging your brain and exploring the titular Wonders of the World.
A testing but relaxing puzzler, Active Neurons 3 will leave you attempting to move a simple square from one part of a puzzle, to another, activating your mind in the process. It works much like the original Active Neurons and Active Neurons 2 did, and whilst familiarity is a nice option to have, perhaps a little more in the way of variety wouldn’t harm things.
